MANILA, Philippines – At 81, Rosalinda Ng’s mother cried tears of joy when her daughter came home one day with her face tattooed on her daughter’s back.

“If she were younger, she would’ve killed me,” said Rosalinda, who described her mother as strict and conservative.

“But she was happy when she saw my new tattoo, and it eased all the pain,” added the bank operations manager.

Rosalinda got a tattoo of her mother’s face September last year after being unsatisfied with one she got a month earlier bearing her mother’s name, Esperanza.

Being the youngest of six children and the closest to their mother, Rosalinda said she got her tattoo as a “display of love and honor to her mother.”

Rosalinda’s photo with her mother after she came home from the tattoo salon won her first prize at the Look Like Mom photo contest held by the Robinsons Retail Group and in May.

She won P10,000 worth of gift certificates from Robinsons Retail.

Rosalinda, who is currently taking care of her mother, said she hoped to spend the gift certificates with her.

Runners up Princess Marielle Sesuca and Hilda Agbisit won P7,500 and P5,000 worth of gift certificates respectively.

The contest, which was in celebration of Mother’s Day, was judged by a pool of photographers from and representatives of the Robinsons Retail Group.
