Nearing completion on this strong & gentle death midwife for terminally ill children. As far as I'm concerned, Michelle is an angel. Its a privilege to honor her ancestors & sacred responsibility. Many thanks to @veggietempura for assisting me by stretching for Michelle. My thanks also to @mrpacificar & @iamherbalaria for providing a space for this to happen.

When people hear of Maui, they mainly think of the island named after him in the Hawaiian archipelago. In Polynesia, Maui is best known as a superman, a demigod who performed incredible feats of strength like fishing up islands and capturing the sun. His timeless stories are still shared throughout the Pacific Islands as they have been for countless generations. Some islands claim him to be a god, others a semi-divine man, but many count this bold adventurer as an ancestor. For more than two centuries, western scholars have worked to record the tales of this mythic hero from around the Pacific. However, these anthropologists have overlooked and largely ignored the traditions of the Philippine Islands. Yet, hidden within the ancient mythology, extinct tattoos, and dying rituals of the Philippines, lays the powerful impact of a man well known in Polynesia, but nearly forgotten in the Philippines. Lane Wilcken, the author of Filipino Tattoos: Ancient to Modern, deciphers the fragments of the Maui tradition of the Philippines and compares them with what is known in the Pacific Islands to restore a holistic understanding of Maui and the traditions surrounding him. In this groundbreaking work he reveals the actual life history of a world changing progenitor hidden in the metaphors of mythic traditions that still affect us today. ❀❀ #author @lanewilcken #forgottenchildrenofmaui #maui #matau #Makau #aponitolau #fishhook #seaspirit #lovestory #diwata #mauitiki #pacificislander #filipino #polynesian #southpacific

throughout the years, the work and deep knowledge of this man opened my mind up to rediscovering My lost Roots and Culture, and helped guide me on my journey back to Recognizing my Ancestors and heeding their call. and as my relationship with my ancestors grow, hopefully one day, when it's right, i'll have the honor of reflecting that through receiving their sacred marks on my skin for them to recognize Me..
thank you @lanewilcken for your hard work in Preserving our true History and Restoring our Culture, and thank you for helping our people realize our Responsibility to do the same ✊🏾

[REPOST @staywildrootsrevival] I am the product of my ancestors' blood, labor, and love. Woke up today empowered & renewed having received their message of renewal and encouragement. Maraming salamat to my mambabatok @lanewilcken for his gift of invoking my ancestors and translating their calls on to my bones, to Antonio @datu_kawili for the stretch, to my ride or die husband P for his endless support on my spiritual journey, to Lyn & Gilbert @iamherbalaria for welcoming us into their home, to my sister @yassy_faal, to my sons @toddlerfarmers, & the community for bearing witness to this sacred ceremony. My heart is full, my purpose solidified, and my spirit rejuvenated. Proud to be Waray, Pinay. <<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>><<<<>>>>

A protective & elegant tattoo to honor the Filipino & Hawaiian ancestors of this strong mother of an autistic child. As a parent of 3 autistic children myself, I admire @duriano4 's upbeat and optimistic energy & spirit. I hope that we will be able to work together again! Maraming salamat to @bigphiazkal for coming all the way fro Wahiawa to stretch and to my wonderful hosts & friends @mysteriesofhawaii. Thank you for supporting me while I do this work to serve our community.

The sacred blood released during batok is not only your blood, but the blood of all your ancestors. Despite being in a car wreak not too long ago, Anjelika was moved to honor her ancestors by taking upon herself their marks. She told me that she felt protected by her ancestors in the midst of that crash. Thank you @babebizares for choosing me to be part of your journey and sharing your experiences with me. Much love and gratitude to @lyn.pacificar & @gapacificar22 for hosting us.

It's a blessing to serve our people, to feel the presence of their ancestors, & reveal the strength within them. @aleckxisjaina is a bright star & emerging leader.

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.

I had the Honor & Privilege in assisting the big brother Mikey in receiving his Traditional Filipino Batok(tattoo) from Mambabatok @lanewilcken πŸ™Œ 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 GodsπŸ™

Recently found this photo of Apo Whang-od & I (2010) while looking for images for an article I wrote for the Kalinga Association of North America's journal. Looking to visit Whang-od again in the near future.

⭐FYI I will be tattooing at the Pacific Ink & Art Expo @hawaiitattooexpo the first weekend of August ( 4th -6th ). Hope to see you there!

Recognizing shadow & darkness allows us to comprehend & search for the light. From that place of recognition, reality expands. Our ancestors understood this. So should we.
Agyamanak unay @faithbrowndefinitively for your trust in me, the batek process, and our ancestors. My thanks also to @velogucela for hosting me and stretching for Faith. Daghang salamat. *photo reposted from @faithbrowndefinitively

People ask if our tattoos can be given to non-Filipinos. As a practitioner its my prerogative to "gift" designs to those I feel both deserve & will honor these sacred marks. Dennis is Chinese, but has been a supporter of Filipino culture and befriended many from our Islands. He asked permission to be able to receive these marks. He brought offerings for me and both his ancestors and my mine. But most of all, he brought a profound respect as shown in his actions and humility. This is very different from people who just appropriate our designs and wear them without permission just because they look interesting or they like the meanings behind them. Agyamanak unay kenka @dennis_de_menace for honoring our traditions. Many thanks also to @ahleevera & @baybayin for stretching for me!

More of this strong & gentle woman's batuk is revealed as she begins her sacred role as a death midwife for terminally ill children. As far as I'm concerned, Michelle is an angel. I'm honored to help her prepare for this sacred responsibility. Many thanks to @libertysauce & @inkanor for assisting me by stretching for Michelle. My thanks also to @gapacificar22 & @iamherbalaria for providing a space for this to happen.

A new gisi (tattoo tool) is born. Each tool has its own personality & it's own voice. I made this one to honor a specific anito in our tradition. Those marked by it will be marked to the Apo as well. I look forward to hearing it's voice. <<<>>><<<>>><<<>>><<<>>><<<>>><<<>>><<<>>>
