What you can expect

Dive into the enigmatic world of Sak Yant Tattoos. Experience the whole process, a traditional ritual that consists of an offering, meeting the Master to discuss the process of the design creation, the tattoo making and the result.

You will learn from a true master, full of experience and tons of visitors including famous celebrities, such as Steven Seagal and Brooke Shields.

The first thing we need to do in order to be a part of the ceremony of Sak Yant is to buy an offer to present to the Master. A quick visit to the local market will suffice! While we are there, I will explain everything about the meaning and importance of bringing these gifts to the Master.

Once we have our offerings, it's time to meet the Sak Yant Master! We'll go to the place where the skin art is performed and you'll get a chance to chat and mingle with locals and visitors who come get a Sak Yant tattoo.

Once we are there, you'll be part of the creation of the design. These tattoos are unique! The Master creates a specific design depending on the person, also the place where the tattoo is placed is picked by the Master. This process is part of a ceremony that you'll get a chance to be a part of, and who knows maybe you decide to get a Sak Yant too!

You will then receive a blessing from the master and end this tour with a cozy local lunch during which we will further discuss and answer any questions you might have.

If by the end of this experience you wish to get a Sak Yant, let me know. We can arrange this for you. Let your visit to Bangkok get marked through this ancient tattoo technique.
