I wanted to visit to get a tattoo from a monk and have it blessed as the Temple is world famous.
Therein lies the problem.

There were women both upstairs and downstairs but I cannot say forsure whether they were able to get tattoos as we left. I ended up getting a Sak Yant in Chiang Mai at a place called “Sak Yant Chiang Mai” and it was an excellent experience for a decent price. Hope this helps
