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.

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!
