About Us – Archan Anek is the nephew of a monk named Poodum.
Poodum died in the late 1970’s after reaching the third level of enlightenment, thus elevating him to the status of Buddha, ardent devotees of Archan Anek believe that when he creates a Sak Yant for you, it is Poodum guiding his hand.
Archan Anek’s body is heavily tattooed, all of these tattoo’s where created by Poodum, and was Poodum‘s “apprentice”, upon his death the status of “Master” was passed on to Archan Anek, and over the past 30+ years he has become a true master in every sense.
Archan Anek is highly regarded and even revered throughout Thailand, devotee’s have been known to travel from as far afield as Chang Mai and Phuket to receive a Yant from him.
Before receiving a Yant from Archan Anek, an offering must be made to Buddha, and after receiving your Yant, both you and your Yant will receive a blessing.
The traditional method of this style of tattoo is to use a length of sharpened bamboo, this method however has its limitations with regards to fine detail. Archan Anek uses sharp tattoo needles, but in the original Tap method, the fine detail achieved this way is quite astounding as can be witnessed by viewing our gallery.
If you are holidaying in Pattaya and you would like to visit us for one of the best Sak Yant tattoo’s available, have your Thai lady call and make arrangements, this is the best idea, as our English skills are limited, but our Sak Yant Tattooing skills are not. Alternately you can call Jaan yourself and arrange it.
The cost of your Sak Yant will depend solely on the complexity and amount of time involved, but will be far less than what you would pay for a similar amount of time in a Commercial Tattoo Parlour.

Foot Note 1: The spelling I have used for “Archan” is how he has it on his Business Card, however due to the vagaries of Thai – English transliteration, it can also be spelt “Ajarn” but both mean the same thing ie: Master or Teacher (Web Master)
