I'm not into the tattoo culture. I don't really want to get a dragon permanently drawn on my back and quite frankly you see old men in Thailand with faded, distorted tattoos and wonder what the heck they were thinking!
What happens when you change your mind? Laser tattoo removal is expensive and not perfect.
But there is an alternative! A quick spray on tattoo, takes minutes, is painless and costs 70 baht. So if you really want to get decorated with ink, this I don't mind!
This booth I found in Train Market in Bangkok.
