The Snake & The Centipede

A series of process-based sumi ink drawings on newsprint mimicking  the hand-tapped tattoo process of the mambabatok (traditional Philippine tattooist), and the protective and spiritually-charged centipede and snake skin patterns found in the Mt. Province and Visayas regions of the archipelago, as well as throughout the Austronesian expanse.
