Synopsis: SACRED TATTOOS OF THAILAND: EXPLORING THE MAGIC, MASTERS AND MYSTERY OF SAK YAN

Sacred Tattoos of Thailand explores the fascinating centuries old tradition of sak yan tattoos, tracing the spiritual art form from Thailand back to its roots in Cambodia and India. The tattoos are believed to imbue the wearer with special powers and protection to help them in their everyday lives, but the tradition is also deeply entwined in the Buddhist moral code and the designs can lose their powers if a wearer errs from their spiritual path. Through engaging expert text, more than 180 full colour specially commissioned photographs and unparalleled access to the greatest living masters, many of whom have never allowed photography in their salas before, Sacred Tattoos of Thailand presents a groundbreaking work on this powerful cultural and spiritual tradition.

CUMMINGS, JOE

about author

Joe Cummings was born in New Orleans, and raised in California, France and Washington DC. In high school he developed a taste for rock guitar and subversive politics, playing in a succession of garage bands while publishing an underground newspaper. After he graduated from college, the Peace Corps granted his request to be posted to Thailand, where he served as an English lecturer at King Mongkut's Institute of Technology in Bang Mot, Thonburi. He later earned a master's degree in South Asian Civilization from the University of California at Berkeley, and was a scholar in residence at the East-West Center in Hawaii. His Thailand guide for Lonely Planet was the first guidebook to that country written in English since 1928. An instant success, it remains one of the bestselling guidebook ever published. He has authored over 40 other books, including coffeetable books, phrasebooks and travelogues. Joe has twice been honoured with the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Gold Award and is also a recipient of Mexico's Pluma de Plata (Silver Quill) for outstanding foreign journalism on Mexico. He never gave up the guitar, and continues to jam regularly at clubs in Thailand, where he makes his home.
