Kneel forward, face to face to the master about 50 cm apart. Present the offering on the dish to the master with the arms outstretched while looking down and please wear a mask.
He will do the blessing to receive the tattoo at the same time as you present the offerings.
We have offerings to present but if you would like to bring your own offering to make it more personal. Then you can bring flowers or cigarettes or some small bottle of spirit or incense or candles etc.
This is known as Parn kroo and there is one more called kar kroo. Which is a traditional donation/offering to the Master. This is the money from which the Master and his family live on.
Also, some of this money is donated to temples and poor people in the mountains of Thailand. We still need to put money on the tray as an offering. So out of the cost of the tattoo, you need to keep £20 and put this on the offering pan.
Ajarn Ohr and Bangkok Ink donate some of the money to help people. It can make a difference to villages and schools in the mountains far away from Bangkok. There are no roads, no phone signals. You can only get there by 4×4 drive vehicles. There are hundreds of members in the 4×4 club Ajarn Ohr runs, which all donate to these villages. Sak Yant and Buddhism is all about helping people.
Control your breathing, breath in and out, steady, while meditating. Try not to move when receiving the tattoo. Ask for a break if you want one. Not a problem to take a break.
While receiving the blessing, put your hands together in a prayer-like position and keep your eyes closed. Think about what you want out of life. He will put coconut oil on the tattoo and start a chant to activate the Sak Yant Thai Tattoo design and bring to you what you wish for. It is all about thinking positive and making a new start to your life.
On completion of the activation of the tattoo. You will be asked to turn around and face the Ajarn and then you will receive a personal blessing with a blessed gift (Tukret) from the Ajarn Ohr. The master will put the Ruesi mask on your head. Traditionally this was to accept you as a disciple and if you did want to become a disciple as many thousands of Thai people have done. You just accept in your mind.
He will pray for your happiness, for protection, and for good luck.
On completion the tattoo, gold leaf is placed beside the tattoo to enrich the magic and your life. Once everything is complete we will cover it for the journey back home.

There is only one bigger Wai Khru in Thailand than Ajarn Ohr and that is Wat Bang Pra. Wai Khru is to show respect to the Master teacher.
The Hah Taew is by far the most popular Yant among Thai’s and foreigners. It is a Yant that encompasses every aspect of one’s life and it is for this reason it is so popular. Anjelina Jolie had this Yant on her shoulder as her first Yant. She has since received more. The Hah Taew represents 5 yant’s / Katas of magical spells. Yants / Katas are chants, and the chants are performed, over and over again to invoke a state of the mind. The mind can create magical spells onto the Yants and Katas. 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.
There is only one more symbol that is more important than Hah Taew and Goa Yord and that is a Unaalome. It is everywhere on Thai tattoos. It represents the circle of life, your circle of life. It has a great meaning of life. It is thousands of years old.

My Sak Yant Story
My husband John had survived five full years in the Royal Navy, many runs ashore with his mates and a close encounter with a tattooist who refused to tattoo a very delicate part of his anatomy one drunken trip to Malaysia. It came as no surprise to me that when I expressed my wish to get a tattoo several times over the years, he always came up with a good reason not to have one.
When we moved to Thailand to live during my contract teaching at the university there, I broached the subject again to him. I had seen an article and a website about Sak Yant sacred tattoos and it really interested me to read about their history and spiritual significance. However, he pointed out that my bosses would definitely frown on me getting one done while I worked at the university. I continued to browse the website designs, which were now on my book marks list on my computer. The designs were so intricate and beautiful , infused with meaning and magic.
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.
