Maurianne's Filipino Tribal Tattoo

I spotted Maurianne last summer on the corner of Broad and Wall Streets. I was fascinated by her tattoo and had to ask her about it. Check it out:

Maurianne credited this to Nicholas, the owner at K42 Tattoo in Tucson, Arizona.
"These are from the tribal days, so like these parts right here [in the top circle] are to ward off bad spirits. When I pass on, these [vertical] lines indicate that I can go to the next ... to the land of the ancestors. Eyes of god. There's a lot of adornments....from the Philippines."
Thanks to Maurianne for sharing her awesome piece with us here on Tattoosday!
