It's humbling to have someone travel so far to receive batok from my hands. Maraming salamat @bathalia.art for the beautiful spirit you & James brought into my home. My thanks also to @pasifikawolf126 For being there for the long haul to stretch for Ayla.

A beautiful Kalinga young woman from the Philippines, 1958. In the past women received their first tattoos after their first menstruation to honor their womanhood, spiritual connectivity, creative power, strength and high status. Beautification was only one aspect these tattoos. The designs also represent omen animals or the animal forms of their respective ancestors. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we had these Rites of Passage again to empower our young women?

It is my heart's desire to share with the world the beauty of Philippine traditions.
To renew insight and deepen the beauty of our traditions is to bring about a series of "aha, I've got this" moments so we can better tackle the challenges of our lives. To connect with the ancestors is medicine to our souls and adds strength and dimension to living on this Earth. <<<>>><<<>>><<<>>>
mambabatok @lanewilcken, thank you for this gift from the ancestors.
Divina @iamherbalaria. Christine, and Lane thank you for your friendship, magic, healing, talents, gifts, raucous laughter, and comforting company during my emergence from Shadow and hermitage.
@verojamie and @veggietempura, thank you for being part of this that night---I see you both among amazing Lights that walk this Earth.

Thank you, Christine for taking the photo. <<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<>

Very honored to bestow Ian's first hand-tapped batuk in honor of his Waray ancestors of the Philippines. I look forward to continuing the revelation of your batuk @_ianlegend_! My thanks to @agosbawi and @_eiriz for the great stretch and to my apprentice @velogucela for hosting me. *Engraving from Francisco Ignacio Alcina's book, "Historia de las islas e indios de Bisayas" (1668)

Grateful to also work with Ashley's aunt @abi_nettles! Wonderful to work with family members, tattoos for the living from ancestors who have passed. Honored to adorn you with these marks of ancestry, protection and healing.

I had the Honor & Privilege in assisting the big brother Mikey in receiving his Traditional Filipino Batok(tattoo) from Mambabatok @lanewilcken 🙌 There were times while I was stretching that I would just close my eyes and felt the vibrations and spirits in the room. The careful and rhythmic tapping from Lane's sharp tools into Mikey's skin echoed thru my hands and into my soul. I felt like I was absorbing the Wisdom and Energy from their rich culture... I couldn't help but smile as I knew their Ancestors where watching over this sacred session with Pride and Love. 😊 Hearing the story behind the markings was an amazing lesson as well. His Batok markings represent Creation and the God-Ancestor Aponitolau Maui/LuMauig (MauiTheDemigod). I walked away from this amazing expiercence with my spirit uplifted and my heart filled with more joy. Many Thanks to Lane, Mikey, the new friends I made and the Tattoo Gods🙏
