    Hi,

    I saw a programme on tv about Wat Bang Phra, apparently it is about an hour from Bangkok. The monks there will tattoo you.

    I was wondering if anyone knew where it was or how to get there. If anyone has more info on Wat Bang Phra, that would be great.


    Thanks,
    Noreen

    haven't any knowledge of this myself, your post was the first i've heard of it, but since I've been wanting a buddhist tattoo for a while, I googled it, this was one of the first pages that came up, regarding the festival they have each year, the foot long needle, and the fact that its not always changed between clients put me off a bit, well a lot actually, but still it seems interesting, and maybe you can pay a bit extra for a new needle and ink pot (or maybe policy has changed since article was written)

    if you do decide to go ahead with it, please let us know what happens
