Look: Rhian Ramos Gets Second Tattoo From Apo Whang

| On 16, May 2017

In 2014, Rhian Ramos got a tattoo from Apo Whang-Ud, the oldest mambabatok, or tattoo artist in the Philippines.

Just recently, Rhian went back to Kalinga so she can have her second tattoo. She endured a 17-hour drive and two-hour trek so she can personally be with the respected artist in the world.
