The world oldest spectating sport is said to be cock fighting. It goes back 6,000 years in Persia. Fighting rooster has been found in the 6th century BC seal of Jaazaniah, It is one of the earliest depictions of a fighting rooster ever recovered.
‘Sabong’, as it is known locally in the Philippines, is what we commonly know as simply ‘Cock-Fighting’. It has been a part of the Philippine culture history going back at least 700 years. Sabong is legal in the Philippines and regulated as well. It is a level playing field that allows even the poorest common man to have a chance at winning some good money from the wealthier Sabong aficionados.
Coming from a filipino decent it was a natural choice to decide to name my shop after the year of the rooster.
It was the blade and its precision that connected the commonality and purpose with tattooing.
The shop is located in Milton Ontario (1252 Main Street East, L9T 8M7) One of the fastest growing communities in Ontario.
Sabong will have a chance to grow with the community and provide an outlet where the “Art” of Tattooing” can be fully experienced. We take pride that we can provide our clients a clean and heathly professional environment where ideas are turned into beautiful custom tattoos.
Tattoos can mark a significant time in one’s life. Sometimes it allows people to turn the page and finally begin to heal. Having been through our own personal tragedies, we have gained a personal connection to that belief.
