Sak Yant tattoo in Thailand
Make a real Sak Yant is a pretty big problem even in Thailand. There are a lot of lovers and charlatans, but there are few real Ajans (masters). As a rule, they lived in monasticism for a certain number of years and learned how to become masters.
To all those who want to make a real magical tattoo Sak Yant, which will cause changes in life, we advise to go to Ajan Kob. Or to the famous Forest Temple. But of course not to do "Sak Yant" in the tattoo parlors on Pattaya Beach. Because the real Sak Yant is a tattoo with a meaning - it is stuffed only in the temple.
As you know, Sak Yant is a tattoo with a meaning that arose over 2000 years ago in order to protect soldiers, bring luck and success, and even prolong life. In the ancient treatises are described cases where the arrows on the battlefield did not concern those who had Sak Yant on their bodies, defended in battle.
World fame tattoo Sak Yant brought the Hollywood. Millions of people know that Angelina Jolie has 5 strings Sak Yant (Hi-Tiao) on her left shoulder. This is one of the most popular and effective tattoos, which brings the owner the five most sought-after benefits of life.
We never work with large groups, as a trip to the Forest Temple for Sak Yant is a rather individual thing. Usually the group consists from 1 to 4 people. Although of course, theoretically we can take more people. Departure is always early in the morning by car from Pattaya, you are accompanied by experienced guide.

However, even advanced Thais no longer stuff a tattoo with a bamboo stick - they use a tattoo machine. For security reasons, it is like disposable syringes, manicure devices in the cabin. The method of applying it does not affect the magic of Sak Yant tattoo, because the most important thing is the master (Ajan). Tatoo from Ajan must be real, following all the rules. A lot of rules and they have nothing to do with a tattoo machine and generally methods of applying Sak Yant. After all, a bamboo stick is difficult to sterilize, at best, it can be wiped with alcohol and it is immersed in infinitely many times in a saucer with paint, which has already been dipped when applying a tattoo to another person. Therefore, the application of Sak Yant using a tattoo machine is allowed.
In the Forest Temple, Ajan Dam (Black Master) uses a tattoo machine with disposable needles. He himself works in gloves and all accessories are disposable. Paint or oil, he diluted in a jar at a time.
