This piece is based on Filipino tribal tattoos. The inspiration behind this animated video was to reconnect to my roots back home in the Philippines. A majority of the tribes in the country is strongly connected to anything from nature. However, the backstory behind these tattoos is that they are only designed for Filipinos only. It's the native tribes values and a method to preserve the tribal culture in the country. The music is played by traditional instruments from in the Philipines and other South East Asian nations.
