Ajarn Ohr is one of the best Thai Bamboo tattooist we have seen to date and we have seen nearly all the work produced from Sak Yant masters who practice the art in Thailand. Ajarn Ohr has four disciples and only Wat Bang Phra has more. Two of them work in Bangkok Ink tattoo studio on weekly rotor to produce, Thai tattoo Sak Yant style. They are all at the highest level of Bamboo tattoo / hand poked style tattooing.

Hand Poke Bamboo style techniques has advanced over time and Bangkok Ink has worked with our three masters to make sure all the tattoos are done with hygienic Surgical Stainless Steel rods with new needles on every tattoo. We also import our ink directly from the manufactures Eternal Ink and Dynamic Ink. eternal-ink-tattoodynamic-tattoo-ink

Some examples of meanings of Sak Yant Thai magical Tattoos

Hah Taew, 5 lines, the five row yantra

Represents 5 yant’s of magical spells. Yants are chants, or Kathas and the chants are performed, over and over to invoke a state of the mind. The mind can then create magical spells onto the Yants. They are chanted 108 times (108 means a lot in Thai, it’s a saying) before entering the high level of meditation. Each one will be done individually and the following magical spells have been cast on each line described below.


The circle at the bottom represents the life you live with the many earthly distractions we encounter in our daily lives. As long as you let these things control your life you will go around in circles.

Gao Yord

Controls all other Yants from the neck down and by having this you show respect to the master and you become a disciple of that master if you wish.

Paed Tidt 8 Directional Yant

Paed Tidt 8 directional Yant is a very interesting Sak Yant Thai tattoo. Many people like this one. It has been done many times at Bangkok Ink and at our masters Sam Nak’s

Below Sak Yant magical Ruesi mask



Lersi, Ruesi, Shamans, Hermit sages originated in the forests of India and Nepal many thousands of years ago. There is just a few left in Thailand who still follow the strict way of a Ruesi Lersi. We only know of one Ruesi or Lersi. They have to leave there worldly goods behind them. No money, car, motor bike, house or family. That means no children, wife or sex or alcohol. The list is quite long. Also you will see from images that they have long hair and always skinny due to the fact they do not cut there hair, just eat fruit and starve themselves for long periods of time, like fasting to focus there minds on meditation. It is believed that Lord Buddha was a prince of a rich royal family. Who left all that behind him on the journey of enlightenment and became a Lersi / Ruesi. Then he went on to start Buddhism which he found enlightenment through meditation but before that he starved himself near to death to experience enlightenment. Read More
