(Reuters) - A devotee in a state of trance mimics the creatures which are tattooed on his body during the annual Magic Tattoo Festival at Wat Bang Phra in Nakhon Prathom province, about 80 km (50 miles) from Bangkok March 3, 2012. Thousands of believers from across Thailand travel to the monastery to attend the annual tattoo festival to have their bodies adorned with tattoos and to pay their respects to the temple's master tattooist. They believe the tattoos have mystical powers which ward off bad luck and protect them from harm. REUTERS/Sukree Sukplang (THAILAND - Tags: SOCIETY RELIGION) -
