Sak Yant by Ajarn in Chiang Mai
5 Ajarn Sak Yant Master's for us to select from
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.
