Straight from the Source: Ink and Identity

Afrokush is a local tattoo artist based in Quezon City, Philippines. She has been in the industry for over two years, tattooing from her own place in Afrokush Studio and at a famous tattoo and piercing shop in Quezon City where she is a resident tattoo artist. As a lesbian woman, Afrokush recalls the discrimination she has witnessed and experienced as she struggles to find her own space. She hopes for gender equality in the future of this male-dominated creative industry.
