1) Best Place to get a Sak Yant Tattoo in Phuket? Sak Yant Master Ajarns

What is a Sak Yant Ajarn?

Unlike Bangkok or Chiang Mai, there are no Sak Yant Monks in Phuket.  The alternative to getting your Sak Yant Tattoo in Phuket is with a Sak Yant Arjan.  Ajarns (also called a Sak Yant Master).  Ajarns are former Monk’s who has decided to follow the Magical Arts as a career choice after leaving the Temple and life as a Monk.  Sak Yant Arjans create their own Samnaks (Blessed and Holy rooms for Magical work), tend to have greater tattoo skills than Monks. 

As the Sak Yant Masters in Phuket are no longer supported by the Temple and have higher living costs, so prices will generally be high in Phuket than other locations around Thailand. However the Ajarn will often either speak English or have staff that do, and can talk with the customer and get their views on which Sak Yant Tattoo they would like or think best for them.

The second advantage of visiting an a Sak Yant Master Ajarn is the standards of hygiene are similar to those of any professional tattoo studio. The Ajarn will use a new steel tip for each session and change the ink for each person.

I got my first Sak Yant done here and had a great experience. I received the Gao Yord design by Ajarn Beer, who was extremely quick and produced a great looking tattoo which I am very happy with.
