Over 330 color images display the designs, sacred images, and scripts that are the tattoo art of Indochina. Traditional tattoo forms dating back over a thousand years are presented, expressing the combined animist-tribal beliefs and deep religious faith of a complex and spiritual people. Despite the encroachment of the global community, the skilled priests and specialists of Indochina continue to create tattoo magic today, as displayed and described in a fascinating text. Interviews with individuals using rituals and symbolsreveal the creative process expressed through their tattoos that help them cope with the unpredictable nature of their lives.
