Yes I have heard of this Tattooing. I did not consider it to be tribal. I do understand where Balintawak came from. I understand the changes that GM Anciong Bacon implemented as his system. I understand he trained with others before the creation of Balintawak. I find it hard to believe that there are still people out there who think that is one is no Filipino then they cannot understand a system or its' histroy. Yet I guess the world takes all kinds.
