datu_lakan. “Prince Giolo” a tattooed tribal man was purchased as a slave in Minda

“Prince Giolo” a tattooed tribal man was purchased as a slave in Mindanao and became part of public exhibition in England, making him “living” artwork. The first Spaniards to arrive in the #Philippines, however, saw them quite differently when they were ultimately defeated by fierce, noble warriors from the Visayas, covered in complex tattoo designs all over their body. That day, these painted people or “Pintados” as called by conquistadors cemented their mark in the diverse history of Philippines. The #tattoos that these #warriors possessed were not just meant for decorative purposes. the tattoos of the Pintados projects an aura of intimidation and fear towards their enemies, which was a part of their psychological strategy during tribal war and raids. It should be noted that this is not some kind of elaborated bluff that they utilized, for acquiring their own tattoo required a tormenting process that only the toughest could endure. Using a thorn from local Calamansi trees as the primary tool, the #ancient art of Filipino tattooing can be done into two ways. One is by dipping the thorn, attached in a wooden stick, in a charcoal paste and then tapping repeatedly in one’s skin. The second is by cutting or prickling the skin wherein charcoal powder will be rubbed in the wounds it created. The position of the tattoo on one’s body indicates certain meanings about the Pintados. According to him, chest tattoos are given to those who have been in a series of battles. As their war experiences grew in number, their tattoos would also cover their backs. Facial tattoos are special markings that are reserved only for those who are proven to be the bravest warriors of their tribe. In the northern part of the Philippines, hardened mountain men from the tribes of Kalinga, Bontoc and Ifugao also practice tattoo rituals or “pagbabatuk”. Like the Pintados, tattoos are often seen on the bravest warriors and head hunters. Their women also have the right to possess tattoos on their body, wherein it is believed to increases their beauty as well as their fertility. Having a tattoo for these highland people marks the beginning of a man’s journey. #Tatak #Batok #Maharlika #TribesOfMu

hell666oi. Haven't posed much lately, just been trying to focus on myself and not

Haven't posed much lately, just been trying to focus on myself and not really worry so much about social media, I feel like the internet can be emotionally draining. I've been on Testosterone for a month now, I have an amazing boyfriend that I'm moving in with next year, and overall I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life, no cap. I don't feel like I need to be posting all the time anymore to feel better about myself. I just kind of wanna live my life. I'll still be posting just definitely not often. Thanks to everyone who stuck around and still follow me, y'all really are G's 💖
