there was a thread on tattoos not long ago and this looks similar, it looks thai to me although the tattoo I thought was thai turnes out to be Khmer.

that is about all I can guess it is related to.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

I was talking about the origin of the motif & script.

The script is Thai. The language is also Thai. It is definitely not Pali. I think I can read the Thai word for "money" in the text, but I will leave translating it to someone who knows Thai better than I do.
