For hundreds of years, the Kalinga tribe was feared as a tribe of savage headhunters. Central to their identity were their distinctive tattoos, separating the men from the boys, the elite from the average, protecting against sickness, injury and death.
Now, only one tribal tattooist remains and she’s 94. Jaime Dempsey is on a quest to find her and ask her to give her a tattoo before this art form dies forever.
To get there, she’ll bike across the island of Luzon. From jungle to mountains to beaches to active volcanos, Jaime will experience some of the best the Philippines has to offer.
