Sak Yant Tattoo Chiang Mai
Sak Yant tattoos – a cultural tradition in Thailand.
Sak Yant tattoos are symbols of the Buddhist faith and are an integral part of the local culture in Chiang Mai. The designs are geometric in nature and feature the symbols of the Buddha. Some of the designs also feature deities or mythical creatures from the Buddhist and Hindu traditions. These tattoos can serve many purposes.
The process of getting a sak yant tattoo is highly ritualized. Only tattoo masters who understand the meaning and the power of this ancient art form are qualified to perform sak yant tattoos. The process is highly involved, beginning with a long discussion between you and your tattoo artist. This is followed by a series of prayers and additional rituals. In some cases, there will even be elements of magic involved in the process.
