What is a Sak Yant tattoo
Sak Yant is a magical tattoo of special sacrality that is made mostly in the territory of the Kingdom of Thailand. Such sacred tattoos can be seen in many, many Thais, probably everyone who has ever rested in the Land of Smiles - paid attention to this fact. People believe that Sak Yant will help in the troubles and misfortunes, diseases, can protect from injury and enemies. Tourists visiting Thailand are also interested in the sacred Sak Yant tattoos and many would like to go through this rite. After all, such a tattoo can bring happiness and wealth to those who wear it. The popularity of Sak Yant grew after the tattoo of a magical character was noticed by Angelina Jolie. The famous actress made the decision to make herself Sak Yant in order to bring more luck into her life. After all, would you still like to be happy and successful in all their affairs and undertakings? Of course, yes! But everything is not so simple, because in case of tattooing by "randomly" or by inept master (Ajarn), it is possible to attract not so much happiness, but problems and troubles.
Sak Yant from Thai translated as: "Sak" means "stuffing" or "tattoo", "Yant" - "holy", "sacred". The miraculous prayers read when tattooing is called "Kata", or a more understandable language - mantras. This is a very ancient custom and each of the masters has their own secrets, their own methods of drawing a picture and his plot. These secrets are transmitted from the master to his students.
Surely you have noticed that the Sak Yant magic tattoos are of several types. They may be black or red, but there are also transparent tattoos of Sak Yant. As a rule, everybody chooses the black color for the tattoo, the red Sak Yant are much less common. Transparent tattoos are applied with oil. They are usually made for children and civil servants when they are not allowed to have eye-visible tattoos on their bodies. But a transparent tattoo is just not visible to other people, only the wearer knows about its existence. But her strength is preserved, and in this sense, the transparent Sak Yant is not inferior to black and red. According to some reports, the transparent tattoo Sak Yant is stronger than its color varieties.
If you decide to make a magical tattoo on your body, then keep in mind - Sak Yant is not just some abstract pattern on the body, it is actually endowed with magical power. Therefore, think ten times before doing it. Do you really need it? Indeed, unlike the usual tattoos, Sak Yant has the ability to turn fate in the diametrically opposite direction. And that means good... or bad.
Only among the real Thai monks there are true masters Sak Yant who can make a truly magical drawing with sacred symbolism. In addition to applying a tattoo, a monk reads Buddhist prayers and special formulas that are designed to bestow blessings. Many offer to make a Sak Yant tattoo for a ridiculous reward, but it will only be a semblance and the pattern will have absolutely no meaning. It will not become a talisman and protection, but will be only a picture on the body, which can be made absolutely by any tattoo artist.
All the masters speak Thai. This for many is one of the greatest difficulties on the way to the execution of ideas to get a magic tattoo Sak Yant. After all, in addition to the process of applying a pattern, the monk will also give some binding recommendations, which must be followed in order for the tattoo to give results and by the way - the result is correct, positive. You need to know the Thai language, or resort to the services of an interpreter. When ordering a service from us - the guide-interpreter support will be included in the price.
How Sak Yant tattoo is applied
Before going directly to the magical ritual, you should discuss with Ajarn (some people speak Ajan, or Ajahn) what a tattoo will mean, tell him the necessary details from his past life, as well as his aspirations and plans for the future. Then the master will be able to choose a pattern specifically for you. As you can see, an individual approach is needed in this case. It is necessary to be as open as possible in communication with the master and not try to hide even small details, otherwise the tattoo may not be for your benefit or will not be effective at full strength.
For example, Ajarn Kob (who in turn was taught by the famous Luang Pu Nai), who works in Ayutthaya, has several albums with the main options Sak Yant. And also, with the amount of the donation after their application. Ajan can point out the tattoo option that he considers the most appropriate in your particular case. And if suddenly he becomes categorically against the drawing, you personally liked, then no need to object. It is better to listen to the opinion of the master and stop at something more appropriate.
From ancient times to the present, the technology of applying Sak Yant has undergone few changes, since several dozen generations of masters passed on to each other and tried to preserve the established rules and traditions. Tattoos stuffed with bamboo or steel sticks. Contrary to popular belief - the sticks are disposable. Before use, special Sanskrit prayers are pronounced over it - a kind of sanctification. Before the ritual, the instruments are treated with alcohol additionally.
How long does it take to apply the Sak Yant magic tattoo? It depends entirely on the complexity of its design and the size of the tattoo, ranging from 20 minutes to several hours. The procedure for applying a tattoo is certainly palpable, but it is hardly worth recognizing that it is really painful.
In the end, when the work itself is ready, the master will give advice. Usually, he asks to keep the basic commandments, such as: not to kill, not to steal, not to lie and not to commit adultery. These are the rules that play an important role for every Buddhist. If the bearer of a magical tattoo does not fulfill the commandments, then Sak Yant will not act. Ajan can also ask for compliance with any additional requirements, which even sometimes seem strange or intuitive. However, in all seriousness and perform this.
