Baybayin Art by Kristian Kabuay
****PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRICE IS PER WORD***
Kamay means "Hand" in Tagalog.
Please note that because this is 100% handwritten, there may be slight variations of brush size, thickness, and alignment. You can have your tattoo artist move things around to fit your body part or fill in to make it a bit more solid as in some of the photos. If you want something 100% unique, go with this. If you want something "uniform/even" like a font, do not order this. Select Baybayin Brush font option instead
This includes consultation, artwork, and translation starting at $29.99 (USD) for 1 word. I’ll send you a high-resolution graphic file within about 7-10 business days. Large/complicated custom orders will take a bit longer. Message me for rush orders. You can print it and take it to your local tattoo artist and they can resize it.
*Please add your word(s) in the notes section and if you want the style BRUSH or SOLID calligraphy style when checking out or the order may be delayed
It's important to me that you understand the cultural identity of Baybayin. I don't want you to have something that just looks cool, although it is. You need to understand the context of the script and how it relates to our pre-colonial past. The purpose a tattoo is to have something personal, right?
Digital vs Ink
Ink: I'll use custom mixed ink and a brush to write your words. After it's dry, I'll scan the artwork, clean it up, and email the file to you.
Digital: Using a tablet, I'll write your words with a digital pen or brush. This option is faster than ink.
For an additionally unique experience, I can record writing out your words. Feel free to post on social media.
