What you'll do

This is something that you can't buy in a "tour shop". Something that your friends probably never have.

Sak Yant is very different from the usual western tattoo.

Sak Yant is an authentic Thai traditional tattoo art that is creating during authentic Buddhist rituals.

Total we have more than 100+ different types of Sak Yant and each tattoo has its own special spiritual meaning and destination that it giving to the owner.

Every Sak Yant contains an image and special magic letters that giving special energy to the owner:
- protect the wearer from bad luck and big life troubles
- bringing good luck
- help with sports achievements (good for boxing and Muay Thai)
- and 30+ others

Sak Yant exists in the territory of Thailand already many centuries: 2500 years ago first monks start engraved Sak Yant into Thai warriors to give them protection and strength in battle.

Also in this century, Sak Yant began a bit to know in the western world, after a few famous people come back with them from their travels into Thailand - Brad Pitt, Fabio Cannavaro, Cara Delevingne and etc.

Thai people believe in a special power of Sak Yant - because many of them made it and saw that not usually changes in their life that occurred after they get Sak Yant and spiritual ritual.

This was such an amazing experience. The people were absolutely wonderful and very welcoming. The shop was very comfortable with nice company. The artist is insanely talented and they all seemed like they genuinely cared about you and your well being.

It is definitely a very nice and interesting experience! It is not like you are getting the tattoo in some sort of ancient monastery, so don’t expect that. But the people are very nice and warm. You get background information and it feels authentic. Most importantly, the tattoo itself is very well done. We wanted something which connects us to Thailand because we love this country and we definitely got this! I would definitely recommend the place for anyone who thinks about getting a Sak Yant on Phuket.

Amazing experience! From learning about the monk that trained him to the blessing at the beginning and the end, it was a unique experience I will cherish forever.

A once in a life experience! Peuan was very knowledgeable about the whole process and tattoo options and the Ajan's craft is amazing (we got TONS of complements from other tattoo shops on our new art)! Cannot recommend enough!

This was a wonderful experience. Peuan was extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the entire experience. The process was explained to me in great detail and they happily answered any questions. The Ajan was very skilled and friendly. I am very happy and satisfied about the outcome of my tattoo. I felt immersed in the culture and very welcomed. The overall price was a bit expensive for the size of the tattoo I received but overall very pleased with my experience.
