Country: Taiwan, Province of China
I’m Cudjuy Patjidres. I am from the Paiwan tribe and come from a small place called Sapulju tribe which is located in Taimali township,Taitung, Taiwan. When I was 25-year-old, I came across an old photo of a Paiwan warrior who had tattoos all over his body. I was inspired by that and have been picking up traditional hand-tapping tattoos since then. I am proud of myself and it’s my great honour to be able to pass down our tattoo culture.
