Tattoos were originally part of an ancient practice known as ‘yant’ meant to protect the individual, but now they’ve become increasingly popular with young Cambodians.

Lovers look more and more to express their feelings for one another through body art.

Ros Sidin, the manager of RSD Tattoo Studio, said: “Love tattoos can illustrate true feelings towards that special one, as the lovers bear pain together.

“It’s evidence of their love, which will last forever,” he said.

RSD will not accept anyone under 18-years-old for a tattoo.

“Those who are underage should not make a decision on getting a tattoo,” Sidin said. “It can’t be taken away like a normal decision.”

The price starts from 15 USA base on the tattoo size.

Most clients are foreigners.
