Filipino Tattoo Design by RomeoKapulet Filipino Tattoo Design by RomeoKapulet
Here's a simple design I put together for a Filipino Tattoo I intend on getting. It has the Ling Ling-o symbol with the Filipino Sun inside. I'm missing the three stars because I'm not sure if I want to put them around the tattoo or place them on different parts of my body. Although the Baybayin (Alibata) text reads "Marinduq(k)ue" This is where my mother and her family was born and raised in the Philippines. I'm thinking of Changing it and maybe putting De Las Santos Or Decena which are the last name's of my mother's parents. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated :) Although I'm not sure where I want to put it yet. I was thinking of my left shoulder/bicep or around my heart on my chest...I'm just torn :P


**Edit** I modified the old version and added the stars along with the black around the sun...

The theme, arts, or the concept does not make sense putting all in one together.
The lettering is the traditional old tagalog writing called Baybayin. You got the letter Ka is correct, that Ka is a symbol for Katipunan not just Ka during the Phil. Revolt., and you forgot to explain the 8 rays. How shameful for us some filipinos speaking Know Your Roots but dont know the meaning of the 3 Stars, and they carry thier own meaning. They were all in different time.

Well the lettering reads Marinduque which is where my mother and her family grew up in the Philippines. As for the letter inside the sun it is the letter Ka which when the Filipino flag went through it's stages when it was first made it had the letter Ka with it... as far as the sun and it's rays and the three five-pointed stars, they carry their own meaning as well...
