Chiang Mai

Lost? Here's how you got here::/Chiang Mai
  • If you would like to reserve space for your Sak Yant in Chiang Mai, you can see availability right in the calendar below.  It will be a private tour for you, so as soon as you book we will block off that day from anyone else as well.  To book your experience, you can select the number of sak yant desired by you or your private group, select the date and available time and proceed to Book Now. Please make sure all 3 fields are properly selected for the Book Now field to appear. Upon completion of your online reservation, within a few minutes you will get a welcome email requesting some additional information (such as pickup location), sent to the email you use during checkout (if you don't see it, it may be in your junk-mail folder). Please reply to that as soon as you can. Dates around Yi Peng/Loy Krathong Festival 2019 are already SOLD OUT with Ajarn Rung! There is still availability to get a sak yant with Ajarn Sam in Chiang Mai. Is the date you're looking for not available? Consider trying our other Ink Experience locations. Please note: Songkran Festival is a holiday in Thailand, and sak yant will not be available during this time (April 13-16)! This is another opportunity to consider getting a sak yant on another date or in another city before or after your visit to Chiang Mai. Please note: Ajarn Rung's Wai Kru event is April 27-28! He will not be giving sak yant during this time. If you plan on visiting Chiang Rai as well, please consider booking the Chiang Rai Ink Experience there.

  • Getting a nat blessing in Chiang Mai

    Nat blessings are closely related to Sak Yant tattoos, in the sense that they are often given by the same ajarns who perform the sacred tattoo rituals. We believe that participating with ancient practices, such as getting a nat blessing in Chiang Mai, is one of the best ways to understand more of where you are visiting. We feel that this experience is best enjoyed with someone who understands the process, in addition to having an Ajarn (blessing master) who faithfully takes his work seriously. By sourcing one of the most revered Ajarns for getting a nat blessing in Chiang Mai, and adequately training our Travel Gurus (local guide experts), we have carefully crafted one of the most culturally immersive, mindful experiences one could hope for while getting "blessed" in an ancient form. If you are looking for a spiritual connection to the east and don't want to commit to a permanent tattoo, but still have a travel memory that will last a lifetime, this may be what you've been seeking. Please Note: Price is all inclusive of a consultation and a nat blessing, though no sak yant tattoo is included on this experience. Please visit the Ink Experience if you would like a sak yant in Chiang Mai. Thinking of getting multiple nat blessings in Chiang Mai on the same day? Travelling as a couple or with a friend and want to share the experience? Since you do not need to hire a guide and driver twice, a discount will automagically be applied as you increase the number of nat blessings.
