The Sak Yant design Tao Reuan or Turtle tattoo is well known throughout Thailand where it is believed that the Lord Buddha, in a previous incarnation, was born as a turtle. Among the many stories concerning the Buddha’s life as a turtle, is one that describes that after a period of meditation, the turtle grew to be as large as a house. It is this tale that gives this Sak Yant its name as in Thai, Reuan means house or building.

In the Chinese tradition of Feng Shui, the turtle is known as a good fortune animal bringing prosperity, good luck and long life. For this reason the Tao Reuan is sometimes referred to as the wealth turtle.
