Why I have tattoos – Tattoos & Thailand

Most people say, when they look at me, I don’t really look the ‘typical’ guy who would have tattoos. This statement is mostly followed up with the question about the ‘why’. “Why are you doing this to you?”. My answer is manifold but starts with because I review the best tattoo studios of Bangkok on this site. The serious answer though is: I’m not doing this to me, I’m doing this for me.  People with tattoos often face stereotypes and confrontations that frequently argue along those lines: Bad people have…

Reminisce Tattoo Bangkok [review]

It took a while but eventually I came across another great tattoo place in Bangkok. This time to actually get some real, new, work done. I went to lots of place to talk with everybody about my ideas and while most places ended up asking me to actually provide the graphics for a base (yeah if I could draw what I want, that’d be awesome, but I’m not an artist) Reminisce actually took the time to listen to me, draw ideas down, listen some more, adjust and then customize it until…

6 best Tattoo Studios in Bangkok [updated]

Since I’ve gotten quite a few tattoos here in Bangkok and since the question always appears on FB groups related to Thailand I thought I give my 2 cents to the topic what is ‘the best tattoo studio in Bangkok”. However keep in mind that there are thousands of tattoo places – there might be some jewels out there that I don’t know and haven’t seen yet. Before we start with my short list the disclaimer: I’ve seen way more tattoo studios before I actually decided on mine so I…

Tattoo: Tattooing in Thailand History vs. New Gen Perspective. (Feat The Tatt Guy)

Hi guys ( and “Guy”), Sawasdee ka. This week I’m neither going to talk about the book nor a movie nor any entertainment related things. This time we are going to discuss a thesis from Cambridge University Press. It sounds serious, right? Well, yes it is. But, stay with me, guys. I’ll make this as chill as possible. Now, brace yourselves, and let’s start. Compared to other countries in Asia, tattooing in Thailand has not been mentioned a lot. So, people might think that tattoos did not exist in Thailand back then. But, there…

All Day Tattoo BKK – tattoo studio review

Finally I found the time to look for another tattoo place in Bangkok order to get touch up work (and probably an extension) of my current tattoo done. It took me a while to find the time as well as the right place. Very often tattoo places aren’t too responsive when it comes to email or social media enquiries. Lots of the places are far away from public transport, don’t hold up to my hygienic expectations or I simply don’t feel ‘at home’ when checking out those places. So, yes,…

Tattoo OD Studio

Eventually I managed to check out Tattoo OD Studio. A studio that comes with lots of credit by almost everyone you ask. When you ask for good Tattoo shops in BKK, you’re likely to see Tattoo OD on the list of recommendations. Here now my experience with Tattoo OD Studio. Location: Thonglor. Pretty close to the BTS. So getting there is a piece of cake. Walk-In: For the first getting to know I just walked in and talked a bit with the guys there. They’re quite “cool” and seem to…

Bangkok Tattoo Studio – Amarin Plaza – Kun Jeans

A few days ago I got another tattoo in Bangkok. Once more I decided to give another artist a try. The reason was simple. Different motive, different body part. So let’s try a different artist. Again, just like before, I spent lots of time researching artists, visiting them and talking with them. One thing that remains strangely difficult is to find creative minds that are willing to come up with own designs related to your own idea. Lots of places seem to be good in copying stuff, having a picture from…

Ku Tattoo Future Park Rangsit, Pathum Thani, Bangkok

If you are an avid reader of my blog here (of course you are, right?) you know that I got a tattoo last year while being back ‘home’ in Udon Thani where I spent the first year of my Thailand adventure. Now, almost one year later, I decided to extend that tattoo. In order to do so I did some research on the internet to find some famous places in Bangkok. I came across names like OD Tattoo or Inception, Sak Lai, etc. All those spots are mentioned quite often…

Getting a Tattoo yeah, getting ink done – Infos & Experiences by a Tattoo Newbie

Alright people this is a NSFMM post. Not Safe For My Mom. So please don’t share it with her or translate it into German! A few weeks ago I happened to be back in Udon Thani, the city I’ve been working for three school terms, in order to attend this year’s graduation party. Since the party was on a Thursday I made it a long weekend and stayed a little longer back ‘home’ and, well, got a tattoo. Now the question I’ve been asked so many times. ‘Why?’. It’s actually…
