The Story of Panumart Tattoo
It all starts with love
Hi, I’m Ryan from Panumart Tattoo and I’m here to tell you our story.
It all started in late 2016 when Ahm, aka Panumart, began a tattoo apprenticeship. During the apprenticeship she impressed her teacher so much that he hired her.
But truth be told, as the months went by I missed Ahm more and more, until one day I asked her to leave her job. I suggested tattooing in our home so that we could spend more time together. Little did I know that she would enlist me to work for her.
That is how Panumart Tattoo was born.
We invited guests into our home, showed them great hospitality, and Ahm gave them great tattoos.
Slowly word began to grow and within a year we had become one of the hottest tattoo shops in Chiang Mai.
Seeking new adventures
The idea of opening a proper shop in the city had long been on Ahm’s mind and my own. Before we were ready to pull the trigger, though, we would need to assemble a team. And as luck would have it the Panumart Tattoo team came together as if by fate.
One day Ahm and I were surprised by a visitor to our home. His name was Nate. We had briefly met him only one time prior.
He came to us that day seeking advice on how to come up as a new tattoo artist. We could see how determined he was to learn, as he biked all the way to our far away home, so we invited him in.
We sat down together for an hour chatting and sharing advice. But once he left Ahm and I looked at each other, both thinking the same thing, Nate is a guy we wanted to work with.
Not only had he shown his hunger and eagerness to become a great artist, but he spoke perfectly fluent English, he was easy to speak with, respectful and had a history in business.
So Ahm and I pitched Nate the idea of working together and he jumped at the opportunity.
The Talented, Hard-Working Family Man
Before opening the shop, Ahm recognized the importance of adding another artist to our team. She wanted someone experienced. Someone who could compliment the team stylistically. Someone who fit the easy-going, respectful personality of the shop.
She searched her mental rolodex and instantly thought of Ae, a long-time friend of her’s who had been freelancing as a tattoo artist for many years.
So Ahm called up Ae and pitched him on the idea of joining the team. She painted a picture of what we value at Panumart Tattoo and offered him a full-time opportunity to support his family.
Ae believed in our vision and joined the team just like that.
Friends, Family & Respect
All of us at Panumart Tattoo value happiness and quality work. None of us would simply be satisfied with a job. We all cherish coming to work everyday to spend time together in a happy environment where we can express ourselves artistically.
We cherish that guests such as yourself allow us the opportunity to work on your skin. And we are grateful for your visit as it allows us to support our families and do the things we love.
With that said, we invite you to join us and hope that we can have great times together.
