Ajarn Fu - Thai Sak Yant Tattoo Master - "Honored in Ink" a short film by J. Brennen Mathues

Ajarn Fu - Thai Sak Yant Tattoo Master - "Honored in Ink" a short film by J. Brennen Mathues

In western culture, this practice is more commonly known as “Stick & Poke” or “Sak Yant Style Tattoo”, and has now become a traditional art style stemming from the East. Paul, being both a storyteller and sak yant savant, conjured up fascinating tales of ancient warriors covered from head to toe in their own unique blend of yants. It is told these Yants imbue spells of protection, luck, and good fortune to those who are granted with the sacred ink, empowering its wielder with outlandish, even animalistic-like abilities. Kind of like acquiring a sort of spiritual armor, not only would it physically protect the inked-up war mongers, it also scared the living shit out of their enemies! Leading to grand tales of massive battles completely outnumbered and out matched. Yet still, no army seemed to be up for the fight against these tattooed savages. So in a sense, the story of the spells suddenly became true throughout history! As the tales passed on through generations, the power of these yants seemed to dwindle. Only those who believe get to receive you could say. I had always been intrigued by these sorts of cultural delicacies. So much so, getting a yant of my own was the very first thing I did when I arrived in Thailand. Ajarn Fu (Fu, referring to his name or identity after “Ajarn” kind of like, “Master Fu” or “Teacher Fu” if translated) decided to bless me with a protection Yant, a spell to ward against physical harm. According to Fu during our session together, apparently this is what I needed the most at this time in my life. To be honest, I can not deny his intuitions. Yet beyond the ancient magic and chivalrous war stories behind sak yant and its history, there was something much deeper at work here, something inside me seemed to be changing. Some days I wonder, “What if I hadn't done it?...”
