and most of the Thai boys are tattooed as well.
Most of the tattoos are done in a very bad quality by their friends and aren´t beautiful. Often they look just like scratchwork. The boy on the left side, name Boy, got a tattoo of his name on the breast, we asked him, what´s the meaning of that weird letter in front of BOY, mai roo (don´t know), he answered. The boy on the right side, name Toh, has a tattoo on his arm, the letters DAENG. We asked him, who is Daeng (a popular nickname in Thailand) and he said, it´s me, but I changed my nickname to Toh. What should we say ? Thailand is just so same, same, but different !
