Kalinga Tribal Tattoos


Apo Whang Od (Last Kalinga Tattoo Artist)
To get a tattoo from the Kalinga Tribe of the Philippines has been on my 'bucket list' for years. Ignorantly, I thought all you had to do was go up to the Kalinga province and simply ask/pay for one. I couldn't be any more wrong. In this documentary tattoo expert, Lars Krutak, learns the history behind their tradition and gets to apprentice, get tattooed by, and live with, APO WHANG OD. WHAT.A.LUCKY.DUDE.
 ***BUT, as I have been doing my research, many people have gotten tattooed by Whang Od who have not had to go through all the rituals/learn the Kalinga way of life. Hmm....
