I had decided to get a tattoo while in Thailand a long time before I was due to fly out. I wanted the words "Imagine, Dream and Believe" in Thai writing.

I had to change the location of the tattoo slightly as I got really bad sunburn a few days before.

I had the tattoo done in one of many tattoo places on the main road in Krabi. I was a bit reluctant to have it done in a place where people on the street could watch, but the place we went into was clean and hygienic and they could do it right then and there.

I sorted my design with them and quickly ran to the nearest pharmacy to get some painkillers to take.

The cost of the tattoo was 3000 baht but I couldn't be bothered to talk them down.

I'm happy with the tattoo and have no regrets.
