Traditional Tattoos: Fang Od (Whang Od) and Kalinga Tattooing in the Philippines

Fang Od is part of the last line of traditional Kalinga tattoo artists in the Philippines. It was assumed for a while that the now 93 year old Fang Od would be the last, but her granddaughter has taken up the art and the traditional continues. This type of authentic tribal tattooing was once done for head hunters and to beautify women, who would be able to take their tattoos with them in the after life.
