Tribal tattooing is part of a culture in Buscalan in Kalinga, Philippines. A person who is doing the tattoo art is called "mambabatok". Before, it was only given to people who accomplished something in their village. But now, it was given to tourist who visit their village as a form of art and souvenir.
