For hundreds of years before this, however, Buddhist monks, using magical incantations and spells, have been covering people's bodies with indelinle ink in the belief that the marking will bring luck, wealth, and blessings. People remain convinced that tattoo provide protection against evil spirits and can render the bearer invulnerable, even to stab wounds and bullets. Known in thailand as Sak Yant, these ancient tattoos are today experiencing a revival in popularity, both in their countries of origin and beyond.

Who are these men who perform Sak Yant, and who are those who get tattooed? Do these tattoos really have magical powers? These question raise the issue of the influence not only of tattoos but also of amulets, culture and religious beliefs and rituals, on the mind and health of the individual.
