Sak Yant by Ajarn in Chiang Mai

5 Ajarn Sak Yant Master's for us to select from

3 ajarn sak yant tattoo

Overview

Sak Yant Chiang Mai is the only tour company in all of Thailand that specializes in this total unique and magical experience. Join guides Johny, or the famous Nana, as they take you to a an Ajarns (Sak Yant Masters) Sannak. Your guides will translate your desires to the Ajarn who will preform the Sak Yant Tattoo and Magical Blessing.

 

Ajarns will Provide Sak Yant for Females and Males, and are less restrictive on placement on the body, and etiquette than Monks

 

 

What to Expect

Your Guide Johny or Nana (pronounced as in Banana) will meet you from  Our shop location in the Old City located at 7 Arak Soi 5.  Click Here for Map

 

Arrive 10 minutes before so that the staff can make sure you are suitably dressed (and provide clothes if not), and brief you on the Tour.  From there you will first head to a local market to purchase your offerings.

 

The Offering usually involves 12 flowers, some incense, cigarettes, food, water, and the cash donation for the Monks time.

 

You will then be taken to a genuine Sak Yant Ajarn in their Sannak (holy place) where your guide will introduce you to the Sak Yant Master

 

You will take off your shoes and sit on the floor along with the local people who have come for temple services. The locals will have a range of problems ranging from the serious to a good luck blessing. Some will have a serious demeanor, and some will be the typical Thai’s with a big smile and be talking away to you in Thai.

 

When it is your turn follow the following etiquette

When you greet a Ajarn, 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.

 

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 Ajarn will have a small accepting ceremony of the offering on behalf of the spirits.  Then after the offering has been accepted the Ajarn will prepare for your tattoo, mixing the ink and sterilizing the needle.  

.

After the Sak Yant Tattoo is Finished.

After the Tattoo it is completed, you will turn around and again bow 3 times to thank the Ajarn.

 

Then the blessing takes place.

 

Ajarn Amnat will then signal the Sak Yant is complete and you will return downstairs.

What our Sak Yant Customers have to say

A truly memorable sak yant experience

When my wife and I decided to come to Thailand, I knew that a sak yant was in my future. The trouble was, I had no idea who to turn to for help. Many ads and forums online mentioned fakes, scams, and hustlers operating out of Bangkok. Eventually I stumbled across a blog mentioning CM…

Great experience

Sak Yant Tour Guide Nana

Nana is a very good guide, thoughtful, kind. she accompanied me to a market to buy offers, helping in choice. Then we went to a beautiful temple where a monk has tattooed me. I was very pleased with this experience. Thanks again Nana. See you again

A fantastic experience and service that is truly exceptional

Tiger Sak Yant Meaning

I was very nervous before getting my tattoo. I brought what I supposed to bring, wore appropriate clothing, and watched a tutorial on how to behave with respect in front of the monk. The owners of the establishment, Johny and Nana showed me the possible tattoos I could get and explained what the blessing on…

The best spiritual and humbling experience ever

I couldn’t be more pleased with how we were treated here. My husband had an appointment at 10 am because that was the only one available. We came in a little early in hopes that I would be able to get my Sak Yant as well. My family was with us as well so there…

Lynn Marciano

A wonderful experience

Shaye and I couldn’t be happier with our experience with Nana, Johny and then receiving the Sak Yant. Johny explained everything, gave some interesting history on the sak yant and the monk was incredible laughing and smiling the entire time. Highly recommend using these guys and is something we would do again.

精彩的体验,热情的服务,满意的正宗Sak Yant(經文刺青)

Sak Yant Guide Nana

我真的很高兴,很欣慰讓我找到了Sak Yant Chiang Mai。這是我第一次Sak Yant。 Sak Yant是我在這一生中想要完成的任务之一。他们提供很貼心的服务,价格也合理。Nana 和Johnny非常貼心和友好。我是妥瑞症患者,经常會抽搐。他们很理解,告诉我不要担心。Nana担心我会痛,并在我還沒刺青前提供止痛藥给我讓我帶著。什么原因使得Sak Yant Chiang Mai是一个特殊和明智的选择呢?那肯定是Johnny(在我還沒去清邁之前,他跟我溝通的)。他分享了很多經文刺青的知識,让我学到很多关于Sak Yant。他帮助我把我的询问传递给和尚,以便我可以有适合我的Sak Yant。Johnny甚至帮助我记录我Sak Yant的過程,因为我不能单独拍攝或記錄。最感人和貼心的是Johnny一直鼓勵我,要保持冷静和給我加油。当我在刺痛因妥瑞症抽搐時,幫我刺青的和尚也很有耐心,因为在我抽搐的時候,他必须暂停一下。我总共有3个Sak Yant在我的背上,我真的满意。因为他们是由和尚特別挑選來符合我的情況。縂而來説, Sak Yant清迈的安排真的很令我滿意。這我第一次Sak Yant,我沒後悔選擇Sak Yant Chiang Mai。如果往後我要有更多的Sak Yant,我一定会回到这里,也一定会推荐給朋友。感谢Andrew的詳細网站讓我對Sak Yant的認識。感谢Nana的熱情招待。最重要的是感谢Johnny, 感謝他所做的一切。保持联系。

Real Sak Yant in Chiang Mai

My Traditional Thai Tattoo

I have been traveling to Thailand for years and have always contemplated getting an authentic Sak Yant tattoo. However, I was hesitant the last couple times because of the unhygienic stories I have read on different sites.

It’s an honour

I’ve put that its and honour in the title, simply because it is a tattoo you earn, not just get. I booked through CM Locals, purely on the recommendation of some blogs I had read and the research I had done. Nana, a wonderful, calming and warm person. Nana was simply awesome from the moment…

Awesome Experience

Executive summary: I did the temple tour and I highly recommend that. I looked up the shop, where the tour begins, a day early. I went to the Tha Phe Gate and walked to the shop, which is pretty much at the other side of the old town wall. That already is absolutely worth it….

My Sak Yant in Chiang Mai

Kishore Pindoria

It was an amazing experience

It was an amazing experience and I could have not been happier of the results and moment thanks to Ajarn Amnant. Thanks also to Johny that facilitated the communication with the Ajarn and shared his experiences. I’d recommend Sak Yant Chiang Mai for it’s welcome and the sanitary way they offer tattoos.

Wonderful!

Nana and our driver, were nothing short of helpful in order to get my Sak Yant tattoo. Being a women posed some problems, and I wanted as close to an authentic experience as I could, but it was difficult. Nana found an ex-monk who could perform what I’ve always wanted, and she made all of…

Great Authentic Experience!

I’m really glad I found and utilized CM Locals for my sak yant tattoo! After doing a lot of research, I learned that unless I had someone with me that spoke Thai, it was going to be hard to find an authentic experience. Nana was great! She picked me up at my hostel, took me…
