Whang Od's tattoo shop, that doubles as her house, is already known to be a tourist destination, more so to tattoo enthusiasts. Whang Od is the last Kalinga Tattoo Maker to date, but we're hoping she would teach the craft to ensure the continuity of this practice. Watch and get to know more about Whang Od in this video by Looking For Stories.
