The Tattoo Thread - Western Names In Thai Script

Recommended Posts

Since we get an increasing amount of requests about tattoos and how to transcribe names into Thai script, we thought it would be a good idea to gather these queries in one and the same thread (special thanks to mangkorn for the original suggestion).

There is already a fair bit of information on this subject scattered over Thaivisa. We will try to link to the most informative threads and posts here as well.

If you have any suggestions, please don't hesitate to PM me or another Thaivisa moderator.

I am disappointed not to find lots of pictures of tattoos on naked butts and other areas in this thread :o

Tattoos seem to be popular in Khmer script in Thailand.

I remember a gal back in college who thought she had her name written in Chinese characters on the small of her back. When we saw it, we had to tell her nope, what she got was *turtle-storm-woman* :o

And just in case anyone changes their mind after the fact or mispells something.... I recommend Dr. Chanokpon at Yanhee Hospital. She's a whiz with their Nd-Yag laser.

:D

Hey guys, I'm living in Phuket and looking to get a tatoo soon. Could anyone possibly show me what 'Adam' would be in Thai, and also does anyone know any decent places to get one done around Phuket?

thanks!

Would สตีเว่น be a more accurate transcription of "Steven"

And สตีเฟน/สตีเฟ่น "Stephen" ?
