Sample artwork for Ms. Dellava
It’s summer and time to show off your tattoos and abs. Here’s some work I’ve done for hot bodies.
Kat Longa (Playboy model)
She liked the look of modified Baybayin on her back even if I tried to get her to go with traditional. How could I say no? Below is a photo of her wrist that says Ate (sister).
Pacquiao in modified Baybayin. PA-K-YA-W. This is one of a few ways to do it.
Stylized Baybayin PA-ME-LA
Based on the general “rules” in Baybayin, what translation is more proper? KO-K or KO-KE?
Answer after the jump
The online traditional Baybayin translator v.1version is now live for everyone. It’s easy to use, just enter your words and hit the TRANSLATE button. For best results, use the Firefox (free) browser. Remember this is only v.1 and there might be some bugs. (more info about the translator)

I ate at Jollibee the other day. The J character is not present in Baybayin. One technique to get the J sound is to combine characters. In the example below, I use the DA & YA characters with kudlits making it DI-YO-LE-BE. One could have also used a combination of a vowel cancellation D & YA to get the sound. Depending on the word, the HA or even GA could be used.
Came across some Baybayin tattoo work from Ryan Anthony Saltiga. Below is what appears to be Pamilya translated to PA-MI-L-YA. Instead of using a + or x under the LA character (3rd one down), he uses a kudlit above and below it. Interesting method. He has some other work with this style that I couldn’t figure out the translation.
