As mentioned at the beginning of this article, this is a photo essay on the temple Wat Bang Phra, just outside Bangkok in Thailand. This is where  I got my Sak Yant bamboo tattoo with my brother by a monk at the temple seen below. If you would like more details on how to get here, along with photos of the tattoos themselves, please check out the full article on our experience getting ours by clicking here:  Sak Yant: Getting inked the ol’ fashioned way in Thailand.
