Thailand to Vietnam

Posted by torrie_amy on 21/4/2006 at 23:25


I just barely joined this site and its amazing so far! My girlfriend and I are planning on taking a trip to Thailand through Vietnam and my question doesn't really concern traveling, but i dont know where else to ask so if this is offtopic, i apologize.

I have a pretty good sized tattoo of Ganesha on my forearm (visible in other words) and I was wondering how the cultures felt about religious figures being tattooed on people. I really do not want to offend anyone, and i was just wondering if it would be a good idea to try and hide it for the majority of the trip. I'm 18 and my girlfriend is 19 and we dont have much travel experience so any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi torrie_amy,

Welcome to Travelfish!

I wouldn't worry about the tattoo -- no shortage of those out here!
