People get tattoos in Thailand – level 1
This news is from Thailand. People go to a temple. It is close to Bangkok. People get tattoos in this temple. Monks make the tattoos.
People believe that the tattoos have special powers. One man is doing really well in his job. He is also in a car crash but he is fine. He says that this is because of his tattoo.
There are five Buddhist rules. You must not break these rules. First, you must not kill anyone. Second, you cannot drink alcohol or take drugs. These are examples. If you break the rules, your tattoo doe s not work.
However, you can make a mistake. You can come to the temple again. You can get a new tattoo. You can try again.
Difficult words: temple (a god’s building), monk (a man who only lives for a god), rule (something that tells you what you can do and cannot do).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
