Hollywood star Evangeline Lilly took to Instagram to pay tribute to 101 year-old Whang Od, the oldest Filipino “mambabatok” or traditional tattoo artist in Kalinga.
Evangeline shared in her 2014 interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer that Philippines was special for her after staying in Palawan for three weeks with some missionaries.
“When I was 18, I went to the Philippines for three weeks. I was on the island of Palawan and lived in the jungle with tribal people, which was incredible,” she said.
Evangeline starred in various films such as The Hurt Locker (2008), Real Steel (2011), The Hobbit film series, and Ant-Man (2015).
