Come and experience the wonders of Thai sacred tattoo artistry as we take a look at the Yant Sumred, spelled ยันต์สำเร็จ in Thai.
A style of body art referred to as Sak Yant, or “Thai Traditional Tattoos” is represented prominently by the design of Yant Sumred.
To become more familiar with Sak Yants, our detailed article can be found here.
In Thai writing, the characters for “ยันต์สำเร็จ” are used to signify completion.
This article will provide an in-depth examination of the Yant Sumred design, exploring its symbolism and the components it contains.
Let us directly examine the significance of the Yant Sumred pattern.
The visuals of Sak Yant’s designs are stunning.
Though aesthetically pleasing, they offer much more than just their visual appeal.
For many centuries, the Sak Yant tradition has been a part of history with each design having a particular purpose and meaning.
The encapsulation of success and attainment is embodied in this Yant.
It’s thought that wearing it can give a person a feeling of triumph and fulfillment that impacts all areas of their life.
Yant Sumred wields the capacity to unlock pathways, demolish impediments, and aid the person wearing it to reach their ambitions and aspirations.
Getting this design inked could symbolize your own success, steering you down a path of success and triumph.
Having gained an insight into the thought process behind the design,
Let’s take a look at a few of the components comprising the subject.
Sacred Buddhist emblems like the unwelcome in the Yant Samred design serve as metaphorical guides towards enlightenment
The journey, reflected in the intricate winding of the income, isn’t a linear progression
On this path, you’ll encounter various trials and tribulations, which may even cause a slight regression before moving forward
The line straightening out towards the end signifies the attainment of enlightenment, characterized by a mind and spirit free from the haze of ignorance
In the Yant Samred design, unalome symbols are arranged in two distinct directions – vertical and horizontal
A vertically aligned unalome is symbolic of a person’s journey to reach an elevated state of spirituality
In contrast, a horizontally set unalome signifies the challenges of maintaining spiritual growth with the distractions and experiences happening in the physical world
With both directions represented, the Yant Samred design encapsulates a dual journey toward spiritual enlightenment
It emphasizes that through spiritual ascension (vertical) and living through worldly experiences (horizontal), we can achieve our quest for enlightenment
At the heart of the design, you’ll notice an array of lines and circles
These basic yet impactful elements bring aspects of the “mandala” to the design
These patterns are traditionally considered to be charged with a special and powerful energy that magnetizes success and prosperity

The traditional position for the Yant Sumred design to be tattooed is on the upper back, just under the neckline
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t get it tattooed somewhere else!
There is really only one rule:
In Buddhist belief, the lower part of the body is “unclean”
This means that Sak Yant designs should only be tattooed from the waist upwards
Out of respect for Thai culture, as well as to protect our customers from people who may feel upset to see a Sak Yant design tattooed below the waist, we only tattoo these designs from the waist up
But don’t be put off!
Thai people and Buddhists the world over are usually very proud to see someone with a Sak Yant tattoo
So just make sure you follow this basic rule, and you should find nothing but smiles when you show people your tattoo
The script and letting in the Yant Sumred design isn’t exactly “writing” as we would usually know it
The language it is written in is called Khom
Khom, born from the ancient Brahmi script, is an integral element of Sak Yant tattoos, including the Yant Sumred
Its roots trace back to the sacred scriptures of Buddhism and Hinduism across various regions, including Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and parts of Vietnam
This is why you’ll often see designs including this script in temples throughout the region
This script is included in the design by the Ajarn, who is a Sak Yant master
It is usually written in a form of “code”, the meaning of which is passed down from Master to Apprentice over generations
Our Yant Sumred design has been sourced from and checked by prominent Ajarns
So while we can’t tell you exactly what it “says”, we are able to tell you what the meaning is
When you compare modern Thai script and Khom, the differences are striking
Though both emerged from the same Brahmi root, centuries of evolution have shaped modern Thai script into a unique system of writing, distinct in visual appeal and usage rules
Yet, Khom retains its relevance in the traditional and ceremonial, including Sak Yant
It’s more than an inscription – it’s a spiritual link connecting the wearer to the cultural richness, history, and spiritual vitality embedded within
