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.

WTF? Guy, for non-romance languages that are being transcribed in the Latin Alphabet there are numerous spelling conventions. This is normal -- Chinese alone has no less than three major Romanization conventions.

I v bern doing it the same way for over 12 years now. I am the first tattoos artiste free hand from morocco. Today i got my facebook account deleted becoz of some assholes here in canada report me to facebook. Coz they ask me if i do have a license.saying no didnt fit with the way they think.if they do.coz actualy if you look at health canada.there is no formal license for tattooing. Ppl like us who trying to keep traditional way of doing art. Are facing the worst fight against it.good luck tomorow you will get a tattoo by a robot.and wonder why there is no more tattoos artiste.i feel soo bad about dummys getting involved in deciding what way artiste should do his art.

Jose Piscano (7 months ago)
Fritz Kobe being a Filipino doesn't automatically mean you're correct, I am a Filipino too, I study International Studies and Anthropology, keep in mind that all Philippine dialects are Austronesian or Malayo-Polynesian, meaning Filipino dialects have more in common with Polynesian languages than they do with Asian ones. Latin spellings for non Latin words often vary, the uploader is correct, the Maori language, a cousin language of Philippine languages shows this trend too where words like whitu (meaning seven) is pronounced fitu, whanau (meaning family) is pronounced fanau, but Whang Od actually acknowledges both pronounciations, probably cause tourists never get it right.
Bin Ting (7 months ago)
Good day! I was there 3 months ago and I asked one of the residents about the name, and according to him, the name "Fang Od" originated from a tarpaulin that had "Whang-Od" wrongly printed. The real right name is not "Fang Od", but is "WHANG-OD". No alternate names. I am from Cagayan where Kalinga is, and I speak one of their languages.
Mary Jane Musa (9 months ago)
Fritz Kobe actually Fang Od is an alternate name that she’s being referred to. Check her Wikipedia page.
Fritz Kobe (10 months ago)
Wade Shepard uhmmm she's from the Philippines and we are Filipinos
Wade Shepard (10 months ago)
Fritz Kobe When writing non-Western languages in the Latin alphabet there are often multiple spellings. Ex. Beijing and Peking are pronounced the same. For this video I'm going with the person who actually went there.

Did she just ignore the interviewer I think it's better if fang od teach her tribe to do tattoo one day if fang od dies no one can get a tattoo anymore

Hi. Do you know the local Kalinga term for the soot/ink that Apo Fang-Od use? Is it 'Merteka' or 'Merieka'? I am really confused. I will use for some school purposes. Thanks.

Wade Shepard (3 months ago)
There are multiple spellings of the same name.
Jose Piscano (7 months ago)
Traditionally in Austronesian language family, which includes tons of languages from Tagalog to Hawaiian etc, the latin chracters WH are pronounced with an F, like the number 7 in Maori (another Austronesian Langugae) which is spelled as Whitu but pronounced Fitu (its Pitu/Pito in Philippine dialects).

these traditions have ben alive for 400 + years and people now cant get a job because of tattoos its crap the tattoos should be  accepted all over its older than the job they are applying for lol 
Sjonnie Het Schaap (3 months ago)
The Law what does it matter what it means?
The Law (5 months ago)
Nobody owes you acceptance. Nobody owes you a job. I am all for us being good too each other but this is a bit pathetic. And tats from 400-years ago probably meant a bit more than the tats people get today....
Reveley_97 (9 months ago)
Most jobs are fine with tattoos as long as its not on your face,neck or hands and they’re not something stupid/explicit
E Winters (10 months ago)
jamie hynes The modern day tattoos are just there for the inviduals personal will. The tattoos earnt from a tribe trough a ceremony shows strength, accomplishes, rank or have passed a test, which other tribe members will notice and not a person with a bible verse below the clavicle.

whats a head hunter 
lestatspada (4 years ago)
+Allan Pedro what i'm saying is that not all of the tribes are cannibals in PH, and Cordiliara's tribe are not cannibal, but they are headhunters. Wow dude wheres vesyan?
Allan Pedro (4 years ago)
+lestatspada lmfao OK coming from a long line of headhunters yes my family belongs to a tribe from the vesyan islands I got to talk to the elders and others older then they were in native language this is when I was about 12-13yrs old I'm 37 atm so yeah they did eat there enemies after beheading them I'm talking about elders about 100-110yrs old
lestatspada (4 years ago)
Give me a site where it said that every tribe in the PH is head hunter, and a cannibal. One thing Japan didn't take control in the PH for more than 100 years. They just briefly took control in WW2. And the tribe in this video were not cannibals in 1800's.
Allan Pedro (4 years ago)
+lestatspada try 1800's and be on and yes they were cannibals
lestatspada (4 years ago)
+Allan Pedro Not really a cannibal. It's a way for revenge or try beheading some rival tribes back then, it's a period of warring between tribes. The headhunting practice was demolish in 1950+ i guess.
MrMatbuck1234 (4 years ago)
I just watched the 'Tattoo Hunter' episode featuring her and I felt like being able to be tattooed by her was a very big deal but I have seen and heard that she just tattoos anybody and now it has seemed to lose all meaning :( Still very nice to see, great video

lapu2x the great (9 months ago)
MrMatbuck1234 they haved ceased the head hunting culture not so long ago.. in order for this art to live she must continue it but she wont give you those designs that are meant for the warriors of their tribe. Her designs now a days are all about nature like mountain symbols etc.. it would still be an honor to get a tattoo from her.
Gary M (4 years ago)
Great video! It's good to see her and the village again. I was there in Nov. and got a tattoo from her.
Freedom 'n' Survival (5 years ago)
A brilliant video , I loved watching this . When you see something like this it makes you realise just how clinical the modern world has become , with health and safety rules and regulations for almost everything , it takes away the natural environment . It's good to see it's not been completely eroded all round the world .
Andizu1 (23 days ago)
Yes, because coming home with HIV or hepatitis is so beneficial to the immune system...🙄 I love the look of this, and the culture. But to say that health regulations is detrimental is just stupid in these days of severe diseases from all over that are so easily transferred.
