Apo Whang-od, who is a popular and the oldest traditional tattoo artist in Kalinga sent a message for “Ang Probinsyano” star Coco Martin. According to the tourists, Whang-od is a big fan of Coco and they even posted a photo of her with a note “Hi Coco Martin I want to see you in person.”
In a video clip, Whang-od invited Coco to visit their place in Buscalan.
“Umari agkos sina Fus-aran [Come, visit here in Buscalan]," she said.
Tattooed by: Whang-od Oggay Born in 1918 Apo Whang-od is the oldest and last traditional "mambabatok" (tattoo artist) of Kalinga, Philippines. She has been visited by several tourists, international and local actors, and has even been featured in several newspapers and magazines all over the world. In our short trip to visit her we found out that she is a big fan of Coco Martin and was even wearing a shirt with his recent series Ang Probinsyano. Also she was a bit shy and like a young girl that blushed a lot when we asked her to look at our mobile phones camera so we can send this video, with her fans and Coco's fan help let them both meet. For someone her age and yet still making the country proud and admired worldwide for her gift in art, I say letting her meet her crush. Share this until it reaches Coco Martin. ;) maraming salamat po!!!
