Tattoo man with a Nat spirit. Burma

The Shan as well as Burmese people worship Nats spirits.

Many people near Inle Lake have protective tattoos with Nats images. They believe in the great power of their tattoos.

The Nats are often tattooed on their arms.

A tattoo illustrating some magical characters with lucky numbers complements entire composition and reinforces any action of the arms's image.
