-Apol Whang-Od gained popularity as the oldest living traditional tattoo practitioner in Kalinga.
-Three years have gone by since actress Rhian Ramos got her very first traditional tattoo, and just recently, she returned for another one.
Rhian Ramos traveled all of 17 hours land trip and endured hours of long trek just to reach Whang-Od in the quiet little town of Buscalan in Tinglayan, Kalinga.
The actress, having designed her tattoo on her own, hopes that this will be her last one. She chose to have it inked on her upper leg.
“I’m just so grateful they agreed to this request. A little old, a little new."
Rhian also has three other tattoos, two of which were also inscribed by Whang-Od herself.
