Getting a Sak Yant in Chiang Rai
We believe that the ancient art of the Sak Yant (bamboo tattoo) is one of the most personal and spiritual experiences one can have in this part of South East Asia. We feel that this experience is best enjoyed with someone who understands the process, in addition to having an Ajarn (tattoo master) who faithfully takes his work seriously. We think quality of the yantra, in addition to having proper sterilization of the equipment both add to your experience being able to enter the process with the assurance that everything will be ok afterwards.
By sourcing one of the most revered Ajarns for getting a sak yant in Chiang Rai, 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 “inked” in an ancient form.
If you are looking for a specific protection/aid in life, a spiritual connection to the east, or 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 medium sized sak yant (about the size of your hand), though it is possible the Ajarn may ask for an additional sum if you would prefer to choose your own design or a larger yant, rather than one he has chosen based on your expressed needs.
