The Face tattoo is only restricted for those Elite Warriors of Feudal Visayas, according to Book Barangay sixteenth-century philippine culture and society by William Henry Scott, ‘Bangut’ is what the called they the face-tattoo, other Visayan language probably? had a different term for the face-tattoo, the design which mimics a crocodiles jaw is called ‘langi’ it also mentioned about a beak design, In Pigafettas journal he mentioned that Rajah Humanbon of Cebu had a flame-like design tattoo on his face.

“The Red head-gear or Pudong/Purong is what they called “Magalong”, it signifies the most valiant warrior in Feudal Visayas.”

The artwork is very nice. But just to be clear, pre-colonial Visayans particularly Cebuanos had long straight hair which was almost always accompanied by a head band. 

I'm Visaya by the way.
