  1. I have a question… I’m considering getting my first tat and would like to start a pinoy tribal half-sleeve. I’m from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and was wondering if there might be a resource or reference I could turn to to help select a unique custom design. I don’t know if there are any online references out there or should a good enough artist exist, is this something that could be done freehand or should the artist be more aware of the origins of this pinoy artform?
