The art of tattoo in Southeast Asia, especially in Burma, encompasses ritual as well as decoration. 

Acquiring tattoos at the Buddhist Temple would ensure the owner of protection, a permanent talisman, or give the warrior further courage in battle, as well as be a culturally decorative adornment.

This wonderful tattoo book is from 20th century.  

The Book made from foldout mulberry (saa) paper with sacred symbols of mythology, as well as numerology and sacred Buddhist texts.
