This is my friend’s tattoo. It was an entry on Pinoy Tattoo Journal, an on-the-spot tattoo contest held last March at a mall in Pasay City, Philippines. Artists were challenged to create unique designs with Filipino themes. Rightfully so, it won first place. I think the concept is very unique and the design itself distinctly Filipino. It mirrors the present Philippine culture far better than any other cliche designs.
