Watch Anthony Bourdain Get a Painful Tattoo in Borneo

Heavy drinking is involved, naturally.

Season six of Anthony Bourdain's CNN series Parts Unknown is in full swing, with recent episodes taking him to EthiopiaOkinawa, and Marseille — and the next episode chronicles his return to the Southeast Asian island of Borneo.

Bourdain says the last time he was in Sarawak, Borneo was a decade ago when he was "heartbroken [and] depressed" — but now he's back and ready to party for the rice harvest festival, where he throws back shots with the locals and even gets a very painful-looking tattoo.

Bourdain also pays a visit to a lush restaurant called Aunty Aini's Garden Cafe, where he learns how to cook Malaysian cuisine — "delicious, delicious food" he says — from a former actress. The Borneo episode airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. EST/PST on CNN.
