Magical Markings at Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel

Sak Yant tattoos, a popular practice among Thais, are engraved into the skin by hand using a traditional khem sak (a pointy stick).

Fans of Angelina Jolie’s tattoos can now get tatted up by the artist who created hers.

Anantara Siam Bangkok Hotel is introducing private sacred tattoo sessions (starting at $800) by Arjan Neng Onnut, a Sak Yant master, in July. Sak Yant tattoos, a popular practice among Thais, are engraved into the skin by hand using a traditional khem sak—a pointy stick.

This traditional form of tattooing involves ancient geometric and deity symbols and Buddhist prayers to bestow magical powers for luck, protection, charisma, fortune, and more onto the wearer. Performed in a guest’s suite or in a private treatment room, the private tattoo sessions are certainly one way to leave an indelible mark for those who want a lasting impression of their time in Thailand.
