The Components of Sak Yant Thai Bamboo Tattoo Cost

There are two components to paying for a Sak Yant Tattoo which can be a little confusing for people.  Both are essential as part of the Tradition and protocols of receiving a Sak Yant Tattoo.  These consist of the offering and the donation.  At Sak Yant Pai, we have the offerings for each person at our shop, so you do not need to find them at a local market. This is included in the booking deposit and is part of our service.

The 2nd part is the donation.  The term ‘Donation’ in Thailand is a euphemism used for payments and fees for Temples and Spiritual Services.  By using the term donation, it allows Thai people to not be considered rude or impolite when discussing costs with Monks and Temples.  As each Sak Yant Master works independently of Sak Yant Pai; you also bring a cash donation for the Ajarn.  The amount depends on the design you choose.
