What is the Price of a Sak Yant in Thailand?

Sak Yant Pricing in Thailand - Why is it Different?

This Sak Yant Pricing page deals with the Sak Yant costs at Sak Yant Chiang Mai.  We know that we offer genuine Sak Yant tattoos with a blessing for around half the price of Bangkok, Phuket or a tattoo shop providing fakes under the term ‘Bamboo tattoo’.  For a full explanation of why Sak Yant Tattoo’s are not Free you can read Why Sak Yant Tattoos are not Free

At Sak Yant Chiang Mai we use the set pricing approach, which depends on the size, complexity and time involved.  We  feel this approach is the most fair, as you get to work out how much your Sak Yant tattoo costs before arriving for your appointment.  Other Arjans around the country will use the Sliding Scale method, in which you usually are charged more the less you know (double pricing for tourists).

We have many people travel from around the country to use Sak Yant Chiang Mai, because they have discovered not only are we the most transparent and actually show our pricing (rather than making you contact us to negotiate) – Sak Yant Chiang Mai consistently offers the lowest prices for the same Sak Yant Tattoo.  Our cost for a Sak Yant Tattoo is almost 1/2 what you will pay anywhere else.

The Components of Sak Yant Costs

There are two components to paying for a Sak Yant Tattoo.  Both are essential although many bloggers confuse the two and call the ‘Offering’ the ‘Donation’ and write about how cheap it was to get their Sak Yant.  However they also probably did not get to choose their Sak Yant Design, and warn about not getting new ink or needles.  This is because they did not show respect for the Sak Yant Masters skill and time and simply did not give enough to pay for the Ink or Needle. 

The Offering

Sak Yant Costs - Offering

The Offering is made to the Sak Yant Master or Temple Monk to show respect for the Temple and Master.  This usually consists of some flowers, cigarettes and costs around 20-100 Baht.

The Donation

Sak Yant Costs - Donation

This is what you offer to the Sak Yant Master for their skill and time for the particular Sak Yant design you are requesting. This ranges from a few hundred to thousands of baht depending on who is doing it and what design is choosen

Some people confuse the fact that Thai Monks are not allowed to receive money for personal use as a justification to not pay the Donation aspect of the Sak Yant Costs.  Monks are however able to accept Donations which they then give to the Temples without any problem.  This is after all how the Temple survives

When using a service like Sak Yant Chiang Mai, we give a total price including the service (In-House or Temple Visit) the offering and donation (depending on the time, size and complexity of the design).

The cost of each Sak Yant includes the  booking time, help choosing the design, translation services for the Sak Yant Master, guiding you through the Etiquette, explaining the meanings, medical after care and the Sak Yant Rules.  Sak Yant Chiang Mai’s booking deposit includes an hour of In-house Service, but does not include the extra costs of a Temple Tour option.
