  • I've played with the idea long to let me stick my SAK Yant, last holiday then I have implemented it into action. What there so that it is now very busy to me. The tattoo out but yourself, the customer is not the monk! I was told that you must make only a small donation, to make a tattoo, my donation was called with 3,000 baht per tattoo! The price depends also from what tattoo you want to have! The room where we were tattooed, almost all tourists was well attended, but many were also again, because they were probably afraid. We stayed, even though everywhere in the room small dogs around ran that and lifted the leg, it smelled not very nice ;-) When I was on the series the fresh sterile needle with the I was stung showed me the monk quickly. An Assistant sitting behind me, Government tightened the skin and she wiped off and on, I was bleeding! I have not seen the cloth and I think that was just as well, all in all it's quite unsanitary there in the temple. My tattoo is it sucked. Taew tattoo that has procedure has lasted 25 minutes, painful Yes clear but it was absolutely endure. My tattoo was already 24 hours later in fact healed, the tattoo of my companion took a day longer until it was healed. For me there was only one, either a SAK Yant stung by a monk in the temple or even none. I would do it again at any time. Still a tip, we could get us a taxi from Bangkok, the taxi driver asked if we had an appointment, we of course did not have. He called there and has us announced, wait a tight hour! And the Taxfiahrer was paid by the temple that he has brought us!

  • Ever since I had the certainty of staying in Bangkok, one of my first thoughts was to organize the implementation of touch to the temple wat bang prha. The information found on the internet I have to say I've never been a big help as regards hygiene, cost and mode but still I got some important guidelines. The temple many go by bus but we opted for the taxi, the same as on other days drove us for other tours and as always the price is before him; forget about L using the meter around the city. Once we get there expecting many tourists were present only local people all waiting for their turn to get tattooed by the monk downstairs. If you go to the second floor will be some adepts tattooing to take care of your Tattoo. Established the design and agreed the price (all else that inexpensive) you start tattooing with the classic bamboo bat; now the temple but as well as in many studies s bamboo remained little Bangkok being all made of iron. But hygiene? Maybe this is the main question that everything people ask: honestly I suggest all the faint hearted to refuse to try this type of tattoo. It will be carried out without gloves, there will be other helpers that will stretch your skin with your bare hands and eventually will not be covered by anything except by your least the needles should be sterilized and the bottle that contains L ink changed each time to prevent the same mix with the blood of the previous customer. In summary in some respects L hygiene can leave to be desired but compared to the monks of the first floor there is a chasm of difference ... through this mode you can try the classic sak yant feeling more peaceful. Last two notes: as I said before the tattoos on the second floor are priced high enough (I have paid the 7000 bath) than their lower fees for which the offer is required only in flowers and incense cigarettes. Regarding the technique of realization I must say that I felt some pain although not been my first tattoo medium large size; In short, between the traditional and the classic difference maker talking passes. Eventually the Tattoo is blessed by the monk. All in all I would say that is experience that is worth trying .... is amazing as you breathe the religious meaning of a tattoo at this place and nowhere else can enter into contact with the culture of this incredible country.

  • Have been dreaming about this day for a long time. Woke at 5am and got taxi from Bangkok. Arrived and there were already 7 people in front of me. 1st man got is Sak Yant with traditional stick. Then another monk came in and started tattooing everybody with a tattoo gun. Bearly gave a blessing no gold left on tattoo afterwards. Other monk left. I was so gutted I left without getting one.
  • nice temple,peacefull environment.good energy and positive envinroment, humble monk that does blessed tattoo sincerely with only paid by our offering to them and donation to the temple.
  • Have received several tattoos. Great experience. Highly recommend.
