My name is Mod. I’ve been tattooing for over 2 decades, split between Chiang Mai, where we now live, and Portland, Oregon, USA. My family and I moved back to Thailand in 2012, and enjoy Chiang Mai’s vibrant city life while being so close to nature.
I tattoo in a variety of styles, but Asian-inspired tattoos are my specialty. Tattoos that I’ve done usually have a story behind them: a little tree with four blossoms representing four children, or a full back piece telling a story of surviving a fatal illness — these are all stories my clients bring through the door, the stories I help tell.
To me, tattoos are sacred. It is like creating feng shui on your body; it is very important that a tattoo makes a person feel good. Tattoos last forever — we get to look at them until the last days of our lives, and they should bring us a sense of pride and joy. I always aim to deliver this for my clients.
