The Hah Taew Element in the Hah Taew Diamond Moon Design
The word “Hah” means “Five”
Fun fact! This is why you will often see Thai writing that says “555”
This would be said out loud as “hah hah hah” and as such, is the Thai version of “LOL” that is commonly used in English
The word “Taew” means “Row”
Each of the five rows in this design offers a unique blessing and significance to provide the wearer with spiritual protections and blessings and to allow them to attract good fortune and success in their life

Significance of the Diamond Moon

Around the moon are a set of interlinked symbols connected by lines, which together create the appearance of a diamond
The diamond has long been recognized as a symbol of clarity, purity, and resilience
It offers both a type of spiritual armor, and clarity and beauty in your life

The inclusion of the moon adds depth and mystery to the design
In Thai culture, the moon is revered for its strong influence on life and emotions
Together, the diamond moon shines a light on the path to enlightenment and personal growth
What are the Letters in the Hah Taew Diamond Moon Design?
Like many Sak Yant tattoos, the Hah Taew Diamond Moon is often represented using the ancient Khom script
This script, with its origins in ancient Brahmi, offers a unique character and authenticity to the design
In both Buddhist and Hindu ceremonies within these regions, the Khom script holds a special place
Sak Yant, Thai sacred tattoos, prominently feature the Khom script due to its spiritual significance
This script is used to etch symbols, prayers, and mantras, each with its own sacred meaning
Generations of Sak Yant masters have passed down this version of Khom, preserving its spiritual authenticity
While modern Thai script and Khom both trace back to Brahmi origins, they’ve diverged over time
Today’s Thai script, used daily in Thailand, looks and sounds distinct from Khom
Yet, Khom remains vital in religious and traditional contexts, especially in Sak Yant
More than just ink, Khom in tattoos creates a spiritual connection to Thailand’s deep cultural roots and ancient traditions
Due to the complex nature of Khom script, it can’t be “read” in a traditional sense when included in Sak Yant designs
Sak Yant Masters (known as Ajarns) include the symbols to represent a specific purpose, and pass these on to their apprentices
Our Sak Yant designs are sourced from renowned Ajarns and checked for authenticity
For this reason, we can’t tell you what it “says” but we can let you know the meaning behind it!
