Tattoo in Siem Reap
Siem Reap is becoming more and more like a resort in Thailand. To cater to Western tourists, Cambodians who travel to neighbouring Thailand have figured out what it is that tourists like--massages, manicures and now, tattoos.
This tattoo parlour opened on Sok San road about 6 months ago. The artist is something of a pioneer in this town--I have not seen tattoo parlours before this. That hasn't stopped Western tourists from getting artwork inked on their skin. I've seen male and female Westerners sitting in the shop.
I expect it will not be long before we see hair braiding done in Siem Reap like you get in all tourist towns in Thailand.
