Photos of Thai tattoos

Recommended Posts

My buddy went to Thailand and got the one on the base of the back of his neck. I guess you have to get that one first and you build around it.

Permanent Mark is from Santa Barbara so I've seen some of the many he has, on his hands, the necklace one, the Thai tigers on his side.

I guess there's only one guy doing the real deal, he's way out in a rural area of Thailand and he's the same guy that's tattooed Chris Garver, Charlie Roberts, Hanky Panky, etc. There's a pretty gnarly story about the guy but I won't share that here...

Very cool to see. We actually had a few girls around the 20 year old mark come on one night a little bit before closing, wanting to get something small (bro tats, I think), and they mentioned they got tattooed on a trip the summer before. We were expecting what most people would expect, but they each had a mantra on the back of the neck from a trip to Thailand. I don't know if we were more surprised by that, or they were more surprised by the fact that we knew what they were and where they got them.

i came across this amazing video today, unlike anything i've ever seen. it led me to this thread and i found that the video documents some of what was described in the link from the initial post. i can't imagine many of us had the slightest clue that this is how it goes down... vice does it again! enjoy!

    • Yeah, try and keep it covered - at 3 days old you don't want to get it dragging through someone else's dance floor sweat. 
    • so I had to jump in here,jail house tattoos rarely have color in them and they are rarely "american traditional", whether you like it or not,a well applied "american traditional" tattoo will outlast pretty much ANY other style around. and second,that reference of tribal you posted was not a quality tattoo at all IMO,it's a mess IMO,there is no good color saturation,not a good design, and the middle band is scratcher shit  for sure, and yes,it's outdated trendy crap IMO. it doesn't make me "low class" or a snob to critique a tattoo,no matter what style it is,it's just my opinion.
    • Once again just to further my point on the above. What we have here is a tribal freehand custom tattoo. It has made its way on to this topic of worst tattoos due to someone disliking the style .... It has however been executed professionally.  I find that irritating, we all have our own personal tastes, I for example hate American traditional, even though I think they look like jail house convict tattoos if one was done well I wouldn't describe it as shit. Tattoo snobbery is low class. Tribal gets a bad rep but people fail to realise that 20 years ago they were bad ass. Guys, your cool tatts that you have today are going to look shite in 20 years time. Just like this tribal they all have an expiry date were they become outdated, and you'll have guys twenty years younger shaking their heads and smirking at your crap work (in their opinion). But if the tattoo is done well then it will be their just their cocky young minds getting the best of them. Peace out....but hey it's only skin at the end of the day.
