  • 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.

  • This temple is quite known for Sak Yant tattoo tattoos (sacred Buddhist tattoos). It's good to get there early to be one of the first to be attended by both the waiting time and transit as for the matter of questionable hygiene of the needles. Unless corrected, the monks tend to begin to meet the 8:00. I arrived near 7:00 (enough time to know the Temple around while someone is holding place on "queue"). How was the first tattoo and I was with my wife, we went to the only monk tattooing enabled women. It does not use bamboos, but a conventional tattoo machine. Advantage is that it hurts less and is much faster (just over 5 minutes each tattoo). He pretty much just tattoos of 5 rows (Hah Taew Yant tattoo). Upon arrival, already inside the temple, it is necessary to acquire the gift to be delivered to the monk, for about 5 or 10 reais (I can't remember for sure). There are even cigarette in offering. Out that there is no other cost involved beyond the transport to get to the place (outside of Bangkok). However, some drivers or guides can refer to the "master" tattoo artist, who works in a room inside the temple, collecting more than 300 reais for the tattoo, which can answer specific requests. That's because the monks usually tattoo what they want and where they want. If you want a specific tattoo or in different location, will have to pay to make the "master". But, there's how to talk to the monk, nicely ... The of 5 lines they usually do in the shoulder, but by asking nicely through our guide, he did in the middle of your back without complaint, making the whole ritual of blessing the tattoo. I confess that the tattoos appeared a little pies, but that's the way it was in the mould (soon, I believe it to be so, even rustic).

  • Large temple complex in the nowhere. The taxi driver knows the way. In the village of Bang Phra 900 bath. We found about 3 km from the temple overnight. Similarities with red light liebesnestern are unmistakable on the basis of mirrors on the wall and ceiling. It seemed like at least on arrival in the evening (21.00). The temple visit makes up for the bad bedroom...

  • 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.
  • Temple of pass away lor phor phun. Famous for his amulet sitting on the tiger.
  • I've got my first Thai traditional tattoo in this temple. peaceful place.
