    I've got one on the ceiling of the car over the driver's seat done by the monks.
    No-one has died in it yet (5 years).

    From the article you linked: Sak means “tattoo” and yant “sacred design”.

    There is a mountain of shit in my car, plus my golf clubs, and I never died in that either...

    From Wiki:

    Sak yan designs are also applied to many other media, such as cloth or metal, and placed in one's house, place of worship, or vehicle as a means of protection[citation needed] from danger or illness, to increase wealth, and to attract lovers.
