Tourist kicked out of a country for her tattoo


Recommended Posts

Really feel for her.. especially after explaining that she is a practicing Buddhist, and is well traveled.

Which is part of the reason I would cover myself up pretty well visiting certain countries. Not worth being jailed for something completely innocent, but at the same time stories like this paves way for a different view on tattooed culture. Or at least helps in some ways...

does anyone know why exactly they are so sensitive to tattoos? i always thought that Sri Lanka was pretty liberal?

I'm assuming it was the image of Buddha, not that she has a tattoo. I think this article pretty much sums it up:
