Hi! I am going to Tibet in 2007 and am looking to get a tibetan tattoo done in the traditional way. Does anyone know where to start looking or has anyone had it done and can recommend somewhere? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers :)

GUEST34133 Are there any restrictions on tattoos in Tibet. Are there any religious motifs that shouldn't be tattooed?

GUEST23652 A friend of mine is perhaps the leading edge in Tibetan script tattoo designs... a guy called Tashi Mannox, he will personally design for you and jpeg the image as well as post to you. He is the best i have seen on this specialised subject... you can contact him through his website:

www.inkessential.com

all the best.

GUEST19459 I don't think it should matter unless you get something controversial such as " *** " or "Dalai Lama" in Tibetan sanskrit... You should be covered as long as its not "offensive" to the Chinese government...

GUEST19459 I don't believe there are any restrictions or taboos on tattoos but whether in Tibetan or English or any kind of symbol, being a more conservative culture of course people might be judgemental like anyone else in America. Excuse me for saying this but white people would be more accepted to have tattoos since its considered such a western impulsive decision to get one. As an Asian, I'm pretty sure no one will take offense or dislike you for it but it's considered a very western or modern thing to do. If you are Asian and worried about being judged because of it, I'd say get a small one in an inconspicuous place or a place you can hide easily such as higher up on your arm so you can just wear a t shit with longer short sleeves...
