Straight from the Vancouver Tattoo Show, Maya Landicho displays his hand-tapping tattooing technique on one very lucky person.
It was an incredible moment… Landicho felt so honored to be able to hand-tap an indigenous pre-colonial ancient design on his new friend Jess. She took it quite well and managed to keep her smile throughout. Mayo and Jess shared a deeply spiritual experience that connected them to the old culture as well as to the actual rituals. Each tapping sound that marked Jessica’s body brought to her imagination an image of herself embarking on a journey into the mountains. It was a very sacred moment for giver and receiver.
