On the 6th of May 2010 a dead body was found shot in a field next to the Samnak Sak of Ajarn Noo Ganpai.
The victim turned out to be one of the Looksit of Ajarn Noo and was apparently in charge of the Amulet store at the Samnak…
Watch Ajarn Noo load a revolver with live ammunition and shoot it at the devotee and the cameraman. This video was i believe taken sometime ago judging from Ajarn Noos younger look.

Ajarn Laos Master Day Ceremony 2010. ??????? ??????? ??? ??????????
I have recieved information saying that Ajarn Lao is celebrating his Wai Kroo ceremony on the 14th of February this year – although i havent been able to confirm this. Ajarn Lao is one of the more elusive Ajarn to find and does not seem to market himself much, resulting in it being difficult to keep tabs on his whereabouts.He is normally pendling between Singapore and Bangkok so it is never sure where he is at any particular time unless you are one of his looksit.
A collection of photos of the wonderful work of sak yant master tattooist Ajarn Terng Kongton. This master is still relatively young but his work is of fine quality and has a massive following with Thai youth, which is constantly increasing. The gallery will grow as i find and add more pictures to it, so bookmark this post and return to it every now and again to see new pics as the collection grows.
