Elora Herberick receives a Thai bamboo tattoo from Kittirat Poljindaluck, a tattoo artist, in his Bangkok tattoo studio. These tattoos are uniquely Thai and usually given using a long, bamboo needle. Buddhist monks traditionally give the tattoos in exchange for alms, and it's rumored that there is snake venom in the ink. Each design has a unique meaning.
