Do you want the number in Thai writing or just the date and year ?

You could write ..

11 - เมษายน - 2509

สิบเอ็ด - เมษายน - สองพันห้าร้อยเก้า

11(in Thai number - เมษายน - 2509 (in Thai number )

Note: The tattooist should knowing how to write Thai number. Unfortunately my keyboards can't.

Right now it is the year 2557 in Thailand. So, that would mean you were born in 2509. Doing your date in the Thai year with Thai numerals is ๑๑/๔/๒๕๐๙

If you want to use the western calendar year of 1966 is ๑๑/๔/๑๙๖๖

And, I almost always see dates with slashes as I have used above.

I had a tattoo done at Siam Ink. They were very professional and I would definitely recommend them. I think the price was 3000 baht an hour.

Hubby and me got our tatto at Micro Tattoo (soi sansabai next to wicked bar) and Mix (081 724 8277 microtattoo3@hotmail.com)

It's sort of continuation of Bangla Road, and Mix is very talented!

He doesn't overcharge, he charged us less than half what Celebrity asked for the same tattoo.

He is thai and he speaks good english so im sure he will be able to translate the dates, and show you options so you can choose it.
