Regarding color tattoos , bamboo tattoos will fade way faster. Even for machine tattoos colors fade faster than black, but for bamboo tattoos it’s way faster. For color tattoos done with the stick and poke method, after 4-5 years the color will fade away noticeably.
Some places just charge more because they think can they rip off tourists. Like I said before, do you research, ask around, look at a couple of shops before you decide. To give you a rough idea mine cost 2000 baht ($57 USD) and took about half an hour to do.
At ALL DAY Tattoo Studio, our tattoos cost 3,000 Baht per hour and our minimum charge is 2,000 Baht .
The price varies on the size of Sak Yant design but ranges from 1,000 baht to 12,000 baht . If you visit an Ajarn you will have a fee as well as an offering ceremony. Offerings can be big or small.
It’s quick and effective. At Bamboo Tattoo we use a Medlite C6 laser for tattoo removal , we love this laser because it can be used on darker skin without damage and removes colour tattoos. The process is super fast, for a small wrist tattoo it will take less than 30 seconds.
Bamboo tattoos are permanent and this fact is something that makes me anxious. It is imperative that the design be right and have a suitable meaning to convey. One of the tattoos I originally had before getting the bamboo tattoo took me weeks of fiddling with the design to get it how I wanted it.
Tattoos in Thailand are cheaper than their western counterparts when you compare quality to quality. A top-tier Thai shop, like mine, is probably more expensive than a bottom-tier shop in the United States and maybe even more expensive than a mid-tier.
Thailand Tattoo Artist If the tattoo artist draws you up a custom design that you totally love show him your appreciation with a tip usually 10% or at your discretion.
Getting a tattoo in Thailand is just about as safe as the next country, if you go to the right tattoo parlors, but there are some things you should consider first. What Type of Tattoo Do You Want? – Before getting a tattoo in Thailand , think carefully about what you want.
Tipping in hotels is not expected, but again is always appreciated, for instance 20 – 50 baht for the porter that carried your bags up to your room, or 20 baht left under your pillow for the cleaner. In all restaurants it is customary to leave behind any loose change in coins as a tip .
Items made in Thailand are inexpensive mainly because of the low labor costs. The average daily wage for a Thai worker is about 300 baht/day. That is for unskilled and semi skilled labor. Thailand is mostly agricultural so food is pretty cheap .
However, ALL DAY Tattoo will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18. This is the case even if they have their parents’ permission, as we do not feel ethically it is the right thing to do, for all the reasons set out above.
It is not illegal in Thailand to have a tattoo of the Buddha .
Is it disrespectful to have a Buddha tattoo ? Yes. It is customary to hang pictures of Buddha at the highest place in your house, and treat it with respect. If you put it on your body, especially on a lower part, it can be seen as extremely disrespectful .
If we’re being honest, the tattooing procedure was extremely painful . However, there was no bleeding or scabbing, and as soon as the tattoo was finished, all pain dissolved away. Like many others considering a Sak Yant tattoo , sanitation was a significant concern prior to just allowing anyone to stick us with a needle.
