Sak Yant Chiang Mai

Getting a Sak Yant Tattoo in Chiang Mai by a Monk or Ajarn

Sak Yant Chiang Mai is the only tour or guide service that does not need to do a tour – saving you thousands of baht and 2-3 hours in time to receive a Sak Yant tattoo.  Because Sak Yant Chiang Mai is a co-operative of local Sak Yant Masters that created a one stop venue – the Monks and Ajarns work from a shared space. You can get the same Monk or Ajarn, the same Sak Yant experience (including the blessing) with our In-House Sak Yant service.  The In-House Sak Yant is done in Air-Conditioned rooms with carpet, using new ink and needles and an English translator for each guest.


Sak Yant Chiang Mai’s In-House service was initially started at the request of the Sak Yant Masters, who wanted to ensure the purity and etiquette of the experience was preserved.  Too often these holy men were being brought people wanting a Sak Yant by opportunistic guides who were more concerned with getting commissions than assisting their guests in the Sak Yant procedure.  Over time, many Chiang Mai Sak Yant Ajarns decided they preferred Sak Yant Chiang Mai all inclusive customer service and sincerity and spend a day or two each week at our Old City location

What to Expect

When you come to our office, either as a result of an online booking or having previously come and made an appointment you will talk with our staff there.  Neither the Monk or Ajarn speak English well, so our customer service staff will ask you about what your magical intentions are, and show you some designs that you are able to choose from.  They will then go over the etiquette and procedures and take you upstairs to our scared Sak Yant room. With the Ajarn a simple wai (bow) and greeting is sufficient


If you wish to take your own photos (and are alone) you can show our staff how to use your camera.  You will be taken upstairs and introduced to the Monk or Ajarn, who will talk to the staff about your desires and choice of Sak Yant Design.  The staff will guide you through the offering process and once the Sak Yant begins they will intermittently return to the room to see how you are doing, take photos, and will come back to help you with the blessing.


Our in-house Sak Yant Masters work from a room at the front of the 2nd floor of the store which is next to a busy street (a little nosier than a country Temple).  While you will have some traffic noise, we have gone out of our way to make the room and experience comfortable for you.


N.B.  It is important to note that while the Sak Yant Masters are working from our store location, this is still a scared space and is to be treated with the same respect as you would a Temple.


When it is your turn follow the following etiquette

When you greet a our Sak Yant Masters, you “Wai” and keep your body lower, it is polite to be the first to wai as is a sign of respect to power and expertise of the Ajarn.  You will present your small “offering to the spirits” before the Sak Yant ceremony begins.  We will provide this offering for you, however the Ajarn does smoke and if you could bring a packet of L&M menthol cigarettes – he would appreciate it.


First thing you have to do is bow 3 times to respect as Buddhism way;

1 for Buddha
2 for Buddhism
3 for the Ajarn


This offering should be arranged on a tray which is included flowers, incense and a candle and the money offing. The Monk or Ajarn will have a small accepting ceremony of the offering on behalf of the spirits.
Then after the offering has been accepted the Monk or Ajarn will prepare for your tattoo, mixing the ink and sterilizing the needle.

After the Sak Yant and Blessing is Finished.

After the Sak Yant it is completed, you will turn around and again bow 3 times to thank the monk.


Now is time for the blessing. Usually you will take your offering and both you and the monk will hold onto it for a few minutes while the Monk recites the blessing incantation. This is the magical part of the Sak Yant experience.
