Behind The Scenes of The Last Mambabatok
By Brent Foster on October 30, 2016
We recently had the chance to travel to The Philippines to tell the story of Apo Whang-od, the last mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo artist) from her generation who is now passing the tattooing tradition of her tribe onto a new generation. We were thrilled to see the video selected as a Vimeo Staff Pick!
Today, we take you behind the scenes on the adventure of making the project, and the reason why we’re pursuing stories like this through our Legacy Project.
See the behind the scenes film below:
