Other Considerations: Please ensure you know before Booking.

  1. It can take a few days to arrange with the Monk and Temples their availability (Monks tend to be busy and not spend alot of time on cellphones).  Please try to ensure you pre-book at least 3 days ahead if possible. Many of our customers book months in advance, and short time availability is very limited.
  2. If getting a larger Sak Yant Tattoo please ensure you book in the afternoon.  Deciding on a larger and time consuming Sak Yant with a morning booking may require you to pay for a Taxi home, so we can attend to the Afternoon guests.
  3. The Mystic is like an Ajarn, his service is charged at a rate and not by way of a donation. (cost 500-1000 baht more than an expected Monk Donation)
  4. If you are a women wanting to choose a Monk option over the Cambodian Mystic - No photos are to be taken of you getting a Sak Yant, (you can have photos of you and the Monk)
  5. If there are two or more people please select an afternoon time slot
  6. A booking deposit of 1000 baht must be made to secure your booking.  The balance can be paid to the Guide at Pickup.  We need to ensure we do not waste the Monks time and have determined that paying a deposit is a sign of serious intention and commitment rather than a spur of the moment decision

About the Sak Yant Tattoo Chiang Mai

Sak Yan or Sak Yant Tattoo (Thai: สักยันต์), is a form of tattooing that originated in ancient Tai peoples. It consists of magical geometrical, animal and deity designs accompanied by Pali phrases that offer power, protection, fortune, charisma and other benefits for the bearer. Today it is practiced in Thailand and Myanmar, and to a much lesser extent in Laos and Cambodia. Sak means “to [tattoo]” in Thai, and yant is the Thai pronunciation for the Sanskrit word yantra, meaning “magical design” or “mystical insignia”. Hence the Sak Yant Tattoo is a "Magical Tattoo.

 

Sak Yant Tattoo designs are normally tattooed by ruesi, wicha (magic) practitioners, and Buddhist monks, traditionally with a long metal rod sharpened to a point called a khem sak.  Although today with many health concerns of the westerners obtaining their tattoos, many practitioners are modernized the Tattoo method.

 

With the increase popularity of the Sak Yant Tattoo, many ex monks set up a tattoo shop Sak Yant Business and provide the service for tourists for a fee (sometimes this fee exceeds the charge of our genuine experience tour). Often the quality of the ink work is exceptional, exceeding what can be obtained from a long steel needle, but the magic and spiritual aspects of the experiences leave many feeling empty.  This is the difference between a Sak Yant Ajarn (ex monk) which is the usual choice of other online suggestions of the Sak Yant Tattoo in Chiang Mai and our Sak Yant Experience.


 

Different Types of Sak Yant Tattoo Experiences

We attempt to tailor your Sak Yant Tattoo experience to fit your desires, however these are working Monks and sometimes (especially if you are female) you do not get to choose a specific Monk.

An Ajarn charge a fee as they are termed Sak Yant Masters and are no longer working in a Temple.  Donation to monks is expected to be 500-1000 baht more if getting a larger Sak Yant
