The Last Kalinga Tattoo Maker

Whang Od is 92 years old and she is the last Kalinga tattoo maker. According to specialists this practice is about a thousand years old and was used as a skin natural language transmitted from generation to generation. When Whang Od dies a big part of her tribe’s culture will die away as well. This video is a first-hand experience of meeting the modern natives of Butbut tribe in Buscalan, Kalinga, Philippines.
