About Sak Yant Pai | Magic Bamboo Tattoo in Pai

Sak Yant Tattoo Pai (Thailand) opened in Pai, Mae Hong Son District in August 2022.  Sak Yant Tattoo Pai, is an affiliation of one of Thailand’s most well known providers of Real Sak Yant Tattoo’s Sak Yant Chiang Mai.  There are many tattoo studios in Pai offering Traditional Thai Tattoo Designs, and Hand Poked Bamboo Tattoos. However Sak Yant Pai is the only place that provides the Real Sak Yant Tattoo Experience.  We opened a branch in Pai, Mae Hong Son to provide traditional Thai Bamboo Magic Tattoo’s for a few reasons. About Sak Yant Pai

  • Many of Sak Yant Chiang Mai’s guests are also heading to and staying in Pai. Often the Magic Thai Tattoo’s become a little addictive with people wanting to get a Sak Yant tattoo in Pai while they are there instead of traveling back to Chiang Mai.

  • Many people looking for a Real Sak Yant Tattoo in Pai, came to us in Chiang Mai after not finding Genuine Sak Yants in Pai itself.  This way they can save the 6 hour trip there and back.

  • People who received a Sak Yant Tattoo in Pai would come to ask us what it meant/said. Many people were disappointed to find out they had received a tattoo but not a Magic or Spiritual Sak Yant.

Nana from Sak Yant Chiang Mai, spent many months traveling to Pai to talk with local Monks, Village heads and others to find a local Sak Yant Master she could recommend.  But there was no one able to provide a western person the real Sak Yant Tattoo in Pai to the standards provided by Sak Yant Chiang Mai. After 3 years of looking, we decided to ask some of the local Sak Yant Masters in Chiang Mai, to come to Pai for a week at a time. 

This way we can ensure that a Sak Yant Tattoo in Pai will offer the same hygiene and quality that has made Sak Yant Chiang Mai, so well known.  We are proud to be the only provider of Authentic Sak Yant Tattoos in Pai, Mae Hong Son, Thailand. About Sak Yant Pai
