THAILAND AND THAI TATTOO

Thailand is a mystery country, which to solve at a time will not work in any way. Tai so captivates tourists with its uniqueness and exotic that many return here again and again. The uniqueness of this country is manifested in everything. Consider some signs of “unusual” this country.

1. Temple of the Bottles
400 kilometers from Bangkok there is an unusual attraction of Thailand. Temple of a million bottles. In a literal sense, from bottles, with different shapes and colors. It seems at first glance it seems crazy, but when you see all this splendor with your own eyes, the spirit is breathtaking!

2. Playing Polo
We are used to seeing how players cut the playing field on fast horses with a club. Here, almost everything is the same, except for one thing – the players ride elephants! Just imagine how clumsy and slow elephants “smartly” run around the playing field! Moreover, these games are not just for fun, but seriously conducted elephant polo championships!

3. Holiday Tattoo
There is another unusual holiday in Thailand – the Thai Tattoo Festival. Young people on this day go to temples to Thai monks. They draw on the body of young guys
ritual tattoos. In Buddhism, it is believed that these tattoos protect them from evil spirits and the evil eye. After that, all Thais who made a tattoo gather in the main square of the city, read prayers and fall into a trance. And in a trance, they can be anyone – a tiger, a lion or any other wild animal. Other people just watch, and do not have the right to intervene in this action. There are only a couple of specially trained people who, in cases of emergency, calm the participants who raged under the influence of trance.

Probably, the idea of ​​creating the first tattoos came to the mind of an ancient man thousands of years ago, when he noticed that after rubbing soot into the skin to disinfect small wounds, indelible marks remain. Along with other changes in the appearance of the body, including piercing, applying paint, tying and creating a variety of hairstyles, tattoos have gradually become an integral part of the “magic set”, to which various societies resorted to interact with the spirit world and during the rites of passage.

Specialists in the history of tattoos have established that until relatively recently, about 500 years ago, in almost every large community – whether in Europe, Japan, the Americas, Africa, Polynesia or Oceania – there was a culture of sacred tattoos. French researchers and colonists in both Americas noted in the 18th century that Indian tribes actively practiced tattooing. Gradually, the French soldiers and fur traders and merchants adopted the custom of decorating themselves with Indian motifs. Tattoos for them carried a double meaning: firstly, they strengthened relations with the indigenous population, and secondly, they emphasized the isolation and independence of the local expat community from the French society of the Old World.

In Borneo, the Philippines, and Indonesia, some lemen still support the practice of “spiritual” tattoos. “A man without a tattoo is invisible to the gods,” says the proverb of the Iban tribe from the Indonesian island of Borneo. Magic tattoos have been practiced in the Mekong region since ancient times. The annals of the Chinese Qin Dynasty (221–206 BC) describe how the Dai and Yue men in the areas adjacent to the Mekong covered the body from the waist to the ankles with drawings of “demons” and “water snakes” (this is probably about mythical naga) to protect oneself from evil spirits. Archaeological research suggests that their state, known as Wanglang (“Land of the Tattooed”), was founded in 2879 BC.

Scientists believe that ly / yue were the ancestors of the first Proto-Thai language groups that arose about 2000 years ago in the Bakbo region on the border of Vietnam and Laos, as well as the Thai-speaking peoples of southwestern China, including tai li, tai Nya, Dong, Shui, Bui and Zhuang (today it is the largest officially recognized ethnic minority in China).

The term “tattoo” came to many languages ​​from Polynesia. In the Tahitian dialect, “tatau” means “drawing, double piercing.” The Thai word sak also means “pierce, pierce” with a needle. The use of this term can be traced back to the Proto-Thai and Zhuang languages ​​of southern China and northern Vietnam.

5. The Kingsheseei Karen
In northern Thailand, a very interesting tribe lives in a small village – the Karen tribe. The girls of this tribe stretch their neck by putting rings on it, and each time the neck becomes longer and longer. Moreover, it is very difficult as it seems at first glance. It takes time to stretch the neck. Therefore, the more rings and the longer the neck – this is considered very elite and beautiful among the girls of this tribe.

6. Unusual trees
There are very unusual trees in the forests of Hao Sok Park. And their uniqueness lies in the fact that they have eco-bungalows.
