The tattoo community lost one of its own in the devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines last week. Agit Susteno of Kanapuy Neo Tribal Tattooing in the City of Tacloban was a self-taught tattooist who studied the ancient tattoo arts of his ancestors to revive the practices of the Bisayan people. The young artist and musician was part of the Filipino traditional tattoo revival movement. Members of Tatak Ng Apat Na Alon Tribe (Mark of the Four Waves), the US-based group who have focused their work on this revival, have been mourning the loss of Agit on social media and offering personal stories of their beloved friend.

Our thoughts are with all affected by the tragedy. If you'd like to help the victims of the typhoon, here's more info.
