Sak Yant Chiang Mai Recent Reviews - 5 Star Rated Unique Experience Best Tattoo Shop in Chiang Mai
Absolutely delighted with our experience with getting our sak yant at this samnak. My daughter had her sights set on a sak yant while in Thailand. We researched and determined Chiang Mai was the best place and this samnak the best option. We had not made an appointment and they were all booked but she went to the studio early and they told her to come back after closing hours. We arrived and the friendly staff worked with her on choosing her design. When in the samnak, Arjan Sam was kind, open, friendly, and had a peaceful energy. She gave her offering (which included the fee) and he did her 5 lines really fast. So fast that I decided to get myself a small sak yant. After chatting with Arjan Sam about my mindset and locations, we settled on inner wrist and I let Arjan Sam have discretion to decide what he thought I should have. He gave me a tiger heart for strength and protection. I feel so blessed and grateful for this gift. (FYI, it does hurt in a stinging way (like bees) but was much faster than a trad tattoo.) Overall, the experience was perfect from start to finish and I would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone seeking to carry a blessing on their body. Khop Kun Ka. ????

It is about destiny that I end up getting sak yant here. It is not about choosing where you should get sak yant because for me the whisper of God already lead me to this place. Absolutely amazing to meet Arjan and stuffs members at Sak Yant Chiang Mai they help me through all the process beginning till the end everything went smoothly. Can’t wait for near future for more sak yant.

If you are wanting to get a Sak Yant in Thailand, look no further! I set up my appointment about a month in advance online. The process was super easy, and the website has all the information you need laid out in an easily understood layout. Unfortunately the temple sessions were already booked when I looked to schedule, so I recommend booking those as early as you can. You will need to put down a 1,000 baht deposit (about $28 US). Upon arrival, Ging was so helpful and sweet! She walked me through the whole process before I even met the Ajarn. I watched the 10 minute video from the email confirmation the night before my tattoo, so that was really helpful too! Ajarn Sam did my Sak Yant, and he was absolutely amazing! The detail is stunning. I brought my niece who decided she wanted one as well, and they were able to accommodate her wish in under two hours after mine was complete. This was my 5th tattoo but first tattoo done with the traditional style. I got it in the middle of my back. In terms of pain, I think it hurt less than a gun. The most pain was on my spine and shoulder blades. Highly recommend this establishment and the wonderful staff !

My husband and I booked our appointment a few months in advance and looked through the amazing Sak yants before our appointment to make sure the ones we liked were doable (some options say they’ll take two hours or they’re quite large and seem like they’d need more time). The people who work here are so kind and very helpful. My husband and I did the temple tour and tattooing at the temple… it was a lovely experience as we were there the day of a holiday. We met a few locals, the monks dog and got to know our driver/translator Mickey! The whole process was wonderful from start to finish. This was an amazing honeymoon experience for my husband and I. We’ll definitely be back and get another one at the temple!

There is no such thing as a Bamboo Tattoo in Sak Yant Traditions!

5 Star rated Best things to do in Chiang Mai

Sak Yant Chiang Mai comes top of many independent “Things to do in Chiang Mai” list’s of unique (but highly rated) experiences in Chiang Mai.

Credibility: We are not a Tattoo Shop!

A co-operative of local Monks and Ajarns who have joined together to bring the Sak Yant experience from a provider who educates and ensures proper respect and protocols are followed.  We are proud to be the ONLY Sak Yant provider who has earned the trust of the over 10 Monks and Ajarns that they feel comfortable working with us from our location.

You Should Never get a Sak Yant Tattoo from a Tattoo Studio in Chiang Mai. Without the proper Spiritual qualifications of the Sak Yant Master – Tattoo Shops only provide fake Sak Yants to gullible Tourists

Cost: Half the Cost of other Places

We have standardized the cost of the Sak Yant depending on time and complexity, and among different Ajarns. As a co-op we have set a price that does not include the commission you pay to Taxi’s or other part time tour guides. For example what we offer for 2000 baht could cost you 3-4 times more in Phuket and 5 times more in Bangkok at places like the Thai Tattoo Cafe

Best place for a Sak Yant tattoo

6 Reasons Sak Yant Chiang Mai is the best place to Get a Sak Yant in Thailand

First and most importantly Sak Yant Chiang Mai are the only place that Monks come to us to preform Sak Yant Tattoos – That in itself is as close to an official stamp of approval anyone can get.

Second, we have a variety of Monks and Ajarns that work with us, other providers have only one option. We can customize the experience, others provide a package with limited choice of design selection.

Third We offer both Tours to Temples for a Sak Yant for those wanting the traditional full on experience, and In-House for those on a budget or limited time.

Fourth We do NOT get commissions from Monks or Ajarns (as we are a co-operative), in fact we have arranged for cheaper donations as we bring daily guests.

Fifth We offer before and after experience care. We discuss with you designs, your intentions (if you believe in the magical aspects), help with unique designs and provide new ink and needles for each guest. Afterwards we have a meditation garden to relax and come back to earth after your spiritual adventure, Antiseptic ointment for your Tattoo, coffee or tea and instructions for taking care of your Yantra.

Sixth We are not a Tattoo Shop!  We only do Real Sak Yants in Chiang Mai with the full on Authentic Experience.  Tattoo Shops are not able to provide Real and Authentic Sak Yant Bamboo Tattoos and there is a BIG DIFFERENCE between a Tattoo Artist trying to scam tourists and a Sak Yant Master who dedicates their lives to providing Genuine Sak Yant Tattoos in Chiang Mai
