Winner of the Chiang Mai Tattoo Art Festival 201, Auttapon Jomjan, 31, is for the fifth year, offering free tattoos to anyone who can show a card from any hospital proving that they have donated their body to medical science.
“Some years ago my mother fell ill and I had to spend a lot of time in hospital with her,” said Auttapon. “During that time I saw so many people fall sick and die. It made me wonder what would help people the most, since money doesn’t seem to be the answer. I realised that our very bodies are invaluable to medical science and research and I wanted to do something to encourage people to donate their bodies so that they may act as great teachers for medical students to come.”
In previous years many people took Auttapon up on his offer, but since last year was hard to travel, he only had 20 people sign up and hopes to spread the word so that more do so this year.
If you are interested in a quality tattoo from an award-winning tattoo artist in a safe and hygienic studio which meets all international standards, he asks you to simply contact him on his Facebook page.
