Sak Yant tattoos are traditional tattoos that have been practiced in Thailand for centuries. They are done by Buddhist Monks or Sak Yant masters who use a three piece tattoo tool called a Kem. The tool consists of a needle, tube, and counter weight or handle. Sak Yant tattoos are believed to have magical powers and are often used as protection against evil spirits or for good luck.
