Tattoo lovers need to attend the “Tattoo COLOR, Tattoo HONOR” exhibition which will reveal unseen identities of Taiwan through the tattoos of 2 indigenous groups - the fading cultural heritage.

Museum Siam invites tattoo lovers to see the “Tattoo COLOR, Tattoo HONOR” exhibition which gathers rare tattoos of indigenous groups - Atayal and Paiwan, history and cultural roots which have never been seen on any books before. The exhibition is free of charge from today until 27 October 2019.

Over the past years, the "Taiwanese" tourism has become very interesting, and a number of Thai people travel to Taiwan, creating the "Taiwan Lover" trend. With the climate, architectures, lifestyles, English language skills of citizens in Taiwan that are conducive to welcoming foreign tourists, reasonable cost of living compared to many countries, and measures to promote tourism in Taiwan which allow Thai people to enter Taiwan without a visa, it is easier for Thais to decide to travel to Taiwan. It can be observed from a number of websites and pages on which people share travel routes, accommodation reviews and restaurant reviews, especially the original bubble milk tea shops that Thais cannot miss. This reflects the popularity of Thai people in this metropolis, and Taiwan is also rich in cultures and historical traces such as the history of one of the oldest and most prominent ethnic groups in the world. They are the first people in Taiwan who are the keys to untold stories awaiting visitors to discover.

 

But for those who are still hesitant or saving up before deciding to buy a ticket to go and experience the bubble milk tea or the history of Taiwan, "Museum Siam" would like to introduce the "Tattoo COLOR, Tattoo HONOR” exhibition, which allows you to get to know Taiwan in a profound perspective through the tattoos of indigenous groups that record interesting stories of Taiwanese culture and history like you have never seen on any reviews, guidebooks or websites before. "Tattoo COLOR, Tattoo HONOR" originated from the cooperation between National Discovery Museum Institute (Museum Siam) together with National Taiwan Museum and Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Thailand and was held under the concept "Before the Mark of Honor Disappears". The exhibition gathers tattoo arts of Taiwanese ethnic groups in two villages, namely Atayal and Paiwan which have tattoo patterns with profound meanings relating to courage, honor and belief. Mr. Rames Promyen, Director of the National Discovery Museum Institute (Museum Siam), said that this exhibition is exactly for "tattoo lovers".

In addition to the rare tattoos of the 2 ancient Taiwanese ethnic groups, Tattoo COLOR, Tattoo HONOR” also features the cultures of Pung Dam (black belly) and Kha Lai (leg) tattooing. Interested people can visit the exhibition free of charge at Museum Siam (Ta Tien) located on Sanam Chai Road, Bangkok, which can be accessed by MRT Sanam Chai Station (Exit 1).
