Working in Bangkok for the last ten years British/French Photographer Cedric Arnold explored the ancient Thai tattoo practice of Yantra in this incredible series called Sacred Ink.

“A body, used as a canvas, every inch of skin filled with sacred text and figures of mythical creatures, all forming a protective shield. A boxer, a monk, a construction worker, a policeman, a soldier, a taxi driver, a shipyard worker, a shaman, a tattoo master; men, women, and their inked protection from evil spirits and bad luck. Enter the world of Thailand’s spiritual “Yantra” tattoo tradition.”
