Tattooists in Phuket

image from the Bangkok Post

A month ago it was reported that the Culture and Public Health Ministries decided to tackle the issue of ‘inappropriate religious tattoos’.

Whilst investigating the issue it was also discovered that there was no generic health permit for tattooists even though they were subject to health inspections, but this was not the biggest issue!

It merely led to a more interesting one - the location of tattoos. This became the most hotly discussed issue on a number of web forums because the topic caught the imagination of the general public. 

There still seems to be no official resolution on any of the above issues or have they just been swept under the carpet with any number of others…
