I don't go to Thailand often, so I thought I might get a traditional Thai tattoo while I'm over there.

Who's an expert on that? I wanna get something small and simple. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

This is from the Put Jaw Temple in Phuket. I really like the circle with characters on the bottom, but I need to figure out if it's meaning is something I want on my body permanently.

tigerboy, I would call or email the shop. I wouldn't expect them to take walk-ins. I'm not going to get any ink over there. I'm working on my sleeve here and want to get that finished before I get anything else.

so i went in the shop and pretty just said i wanted to extend my current piece, explained what i wanted and he drew it on my on the spot, then took a carbon copy of the design off my body.

went in a few days later and he re-drew it back up and knocked it out in about 3 - 3.5 hours.

after that i kind of had a bug so i went to the golden hand in chalong to get a bamboo piece as well.
