Hey mate, I contacted Jeremy Lo from Monkey Tattoo. He's from the Iban tribe and travels around the world spreading traditional tattooing. https://www.facebook.com/pg/monkeytattoostudio/photos/?tab=album&album_id=306002816126921

HORAN IJAI (2 years ago)
yea, iban warrior tattoo
Joshua Wood (2 years ago)
It is a coming of age tattoo. It symbolises becoming a man.
no good
jjonestowne (2 years ago)
must take awhile to fill in w/ the black, huh?
Joshua Wood (2 years ago)
+jjonestowne it was around 3.5hrs for these. Yup, on a bamboo mat on the floor. The longest I've sat for a single session it about 4+ hrs. Honestly, this was excruciating.
jjonestowne (2 years ago)
so, like 4 or 5hrs for both pieces, line and fill, all combined? it's cool you're on the floor, i bet. have you sat very long for conventional tats?
Joshua Wood (2 years ago)
About 1 1/2 to and 1 3/4 hours each.
jjonestowne (2 years ago)
that's pretty badass, Man, i'm jealous.

I wanna get a tattoo from the Kalinga hand tapped in the philippines if I can
icyy kat (2 years ago)
so is this kind of like a stick and poke?
Joshua Wood (2 years ago)
Yeah kind of. Stick and poke usually refers to the use of a single needle, like used in Thailand.

I like them but I have bad pain tolerance and so I don't honk I could but if I get the tattoos the "normal" (don't know how to say it since this is normal too, so I guess electric?) way and build the tolerance I would like to try this
Nonesense Speaker (3 years ago)
+Joshua Wood yeah
Joshua Wood (3 years ago)
Yeah these are a really rough way to get a tattoo. I had a few modern style tattoos first, and it kind of prepared me, but the sensation is very different. It's interesting how a lot of cultures are really excited when someone wants to carry a piece of their history with them. Where as others (mostly those found in the first word) would call it appropriation and throw a fit about it.
Nonesense Speaker (3 years ago)
It'd be a good way to show respect to the culture too
dudz wenceslao (3 years ago)
i bet it's an awesome experience! i want one too.
Joshua Wood (3 years ago)
+dudz wenceslao Definitely a great experience, albeit a painful one.
Dedy Firmansyah (3 years ago)

Anna Michelle (3 years ago)
This looks so cool, I want to get this done. 💜
Justin Chan (4 years ago)

Joshua Wood (3 years ago)
