As promised, I’m posting another update on Tattoo de Ilocos tattooist/owner Janer Santos’s winning tattoo works. On safe tattooing concerns, Janer is pleased to inform everyone that he underwent the Dept. of Health (DOH)-Remedios Aids Foundation Inc. training for the Philippine Tattoo Artists Guild (PhilTAG) members at the Grotto Vista Resort in San Jose del Monte City (Bulacan) last March 28, 2009.
Here are some of his winning entries in the Feel D’ Ink Tattoo Competition, where he won 6 awards. The May 30, 2009 event was held at Poro Point in La Union. The photo (at the left), another bio-organic inspired tattoo, garnered the highest honors for Best in Color.
