mod tattoo biography photo

My name is Mod. I’ve been tattooing for over 2 decades, split between Chiang Mai, where we now live, and Portland, Oregon, USA. My family and I moved back to Thailand in 2012, and enjoy Chiang Mai’s vibrant city life while being so close to nature.

I tattoo in a variety of styles, but Asian-inspired tattoos are my specialty. Tattoos that I’ve done usually have a story behind them: a little tree with four blossoms representing four children, or a full back piece telling a story of surviving a fatal illness — these are all stories my clients bring through the door, the stories I help tell.

To me, tattoos are sacred. It is like creating feng shui on your body; it is very important that a tattoo makes a person feel good. Tattoos last forever — we get to look at them until the last days of our lives, and they should bring us a sense of pride and joy. I always aim to deliver this for my clients.

All the rave reviews are true. They are truly the most awesome people in so many ways... I have no words. So grateful I listened to a friend's recommendation to get mine done here. The work is more beautiful than I envisioned. I will be coming back for more. This is the place you are looking for. Just good vibes all around.

It couldn't have gone better. I sent Mod a rough idea of what I wanted and he promptly came back to me with a great design. The whole experience was superb. Mod is super talented and his family (who work at the shop with him) were very welcoming. If you want a tattoo in Chiang Mai, get in touch with Mod!

Just got my second custom made tattoo from Mod. Experienced, he is able to read your mind as you share your ideas and comes up with a high standard design. Respond quickly. On time. Patient. Perfectionist. Creative. I will not go anywhere else.

Mozilla is fantastic. This is my third piece with Mod. Everytime I have a great experience. Each of the three pieces is totally unique. The colors really stand out even after many years since the first one. The results really speak for themselves and you can tell that Mod does what he loves and puts the time in to make every piece great. I'll definitely be back in the future.
