Presented in clear and precise sections, Sacred Skin takes us from the origins of Sak Yant with details of some of the most famous Sak Yant Masters right through to modern day culture. Information about the spiritual and physical benefits that Sak Yant will bestow as well as rules for the sak Yant devotee are clearly explained and there is a useful glossary included. The photography in the book is simply stunning with photographs of many of the most popular Sak Yant designs.
Sak yant has become very popular in the West, partly due to the publicity surrounding Angelina Jolie who has received several Sak Yants in Thailand. Sacred Ink will certainly add to the popularity but more importantly will give those people who are thinking of getting a Sak Yant, the proper information. After all, Sak Yant is not just a pretty tattoo but an indelible spiritual marking on both the body and soul which should not be undertaken lightly.
