Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Once upon a boat ride in Phi Phi, I stumbled into the world of real Tai tattoos … full of inscriptions and magical figures.
We can copy the figures …

Young Mr. Noo of Phi Phi Island proudly displays his tattoos that gave meaning in every motif. We did not share a language so I could not find out more,but similar ones may be seen in the book on Tai Spirit Cloths that I posted a few months ago.
