Those tattoos just below the neck are everywhere in Thailand. Why do people get them?

They're called "Yantra" Tattoos and they are believed to:

  • Offer protection
  • Attract love or a desired relationship partner
  • Give a good reputation
  • Bring good luck
  • Bring magical powers
  • Make the wearer more confident
  • Invoking fear

All sorts of people get them, but did you know that they are widely used by people in dangerous professions such as taxi drivers, military personnel and people in the nightlife industry?

The tattoo itself is only as powerful as the tattoo artist or "Arjan" who created it. So getting a good Arjan is critical.

However, many modern day Thai people simple see this as just a stylish good luck symbol.
