Wonderful experience from start to finish. Very reasonable prices as service is excellent. Went to a Wat where an Arjan did two sak yant. Carefully placed and with the kata designed for my specific intentions. (I highly recommend the traditional method-not the modern tattoo machine method—as it is very fast and less painful.) SYCM staff were well informed and patient with questions and correct procedures.

Ploy and Cody were amazing. Ploy taught me about the different meanings of the sak yant and gave me descriptions of each one. It was my first time and Chiang Mai and and first sak yant and she was so helpful. I ended up getting 4. I had a full sleeve already on one arm with a traditional gun tattoo and I have to say this hurts less and is even enjoyable if you really want it and go there for the experience. Cody talked to me throughout the process and brought me coffee and water and took videos and pics from my phone just to do it he was awesome. Ajarn Sam was incredible he worked so fast and he was so friendly and I got exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend this place and to book early if you’re serious they get pretty busy because the work they do is worth it!

I highly recommend this place for your Sak Yant. It was truly a wonderful experience and I fully intend on coming back here if I'm ever in Chiang Mai again. Ploy was the first person I met at their offices and immediately put me at ease. She's such a genuine, warm and kind soul - one of the English speaking 'guides' who will translate and can advise you on your design choice (& there's a huge amount of choice), it's meaning and communicate any personalisation you would like in the prayer or symbols. The Arjan/monk will also ask if you have any specific intentions you would like accommodations for. For example, I chose the Golden Swan, only one of the twins, and had some tweaks changed to take out the charisma/popularity elements. Your guide, in my case Ploy, will take pictures and video throughout on your device. They leave you alone with the Arjan but will check in every 5-10mins. The whole tattooing portion took around 30mins. Then you'll have a blessing on tattoo, activating it's power through mantras etc, and then another when a bracelet is placed on you. You can also choose to have a mala blessed and they have a lovely selection onsite to choose from. I did a lot of research and I appreciate their cooperative project to keep Sak Yants both authentic and fair to tourists. The whole thing really was a profound experience and I'm grateful for Ploy and the Arjan for their kindness. Thank you so much!

This shop is full of helpful and honest staff, make sure you speak to Cody when you visit! In a world full of people looking to trick you or sell you something Cody stands out as an incredibly honest and kind person who will direct you down the right path and ensure you have a positive experience. Thank you for everything you have done to make my first tattoo and visit to Thailand an incredible and memorable experience that I will never forget!

Wonderful experience! Really knowledgeable, welcoming, and patient staff. I wanted to move the positioning of my tattoo several times and the Arjan and assistant were very understanding. I was able to film the entire experience. This photo is of my tattoo on day 7 healing very nicely. It wasn’t any more painful than a regular tattoo and actually maybe less painful because no shading! The blessing was beautiful and made me very emotional. 10/10 recommend

We booked with Sak Yant Chiang Mai and had the most amazing experience. We had our own guide Cody who was absolutely amazing, he took us to the temple to have our tattoos. He made us feel at ease and was ever so friendly. We had a wonderful time speaking with the monks and learning about some of their culture. Would highly recommend booking with Sak Yant Chiang Mai for a stress free, amazing cultural experience!

Authentic Sak Yant Tattoo in Chiang Mai

Thai Co-operative of individual Sak Yant Masters, including both Monks and Sak Yant Ajarns who work together to provide an authentic experience for the guest. At Sak Yant Chiang Mai, all we do is Sak Yant tattoo’s. We do not up-sell other tours, we do not deliver food or make custom suits, we do not take you to Sak Yant Masters that have arranged to slide up the cost to give a kickback commission. We are full-time, dedicated to the Sak Yant Tattoo

 
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 12 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 gulliable Tourists

 
Cost: Only 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 Tattoo in Chiang Mai, 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 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
