what happens when you combine a tribal design (for ever-flowing zen), a sun mandala (for sinag ng araw ko) and cherry blossoms (dahil maganda ako, hehe. couldn’t resist, i’m a sucker for japanese-style flowers)? this:

my very first tattoo. was painful as hell, no regrets though. a new addiction? will find out sooner or later.

thanks to alfred guevarra, former president of PHILTAG (Philippine Tattoo Artist Guild) and bassist for punk band WUDS. when i asked him to describe to me the pain so i’d know what to expect, he told me, “yung pain temporary lang, pero yung art permanent (the pain is only temporary but the art is permanent)”. his shop, Avatar Tattoo, is located at 1150-B Estrada St., Singalong, Malate, Manila. alfred’s a GREAT artist, contact him: 5369024 / 09163616678 for appointments.

    Is it a coalition party? Like the Green Party?It is always being debated, whether to enter a bourgeoise party. In the USA, we need a party based on labor. Before that will happen, we need a revolutionary situation.I have recently become associated with this group.

    ren eye, Kabataan Party-list is composed of youth and students organizations here in the Philippines. its main objective is to seek youth representation in Congress for the youth’s campaign for education and employment but is still closely related with party-lists of other sectors with the same advocacies. it is actually a multi-sectoral youth party-list.please visit http://www.kabataanparty.com for more info. there is also a section there on the Philippine perty-list system (http://www.kabataanparty.com/what-is-the-party-list-system/ happy browsing! 🙂

    hey, gorgeous tat! 🙂 i love the uniqueness of it. anyway, stumbled here while researching designs. question, did you do the design yourself or did you just tell your artist alfred the elements you wanted and he put it together for you?
