Bunga Terung

The Bunga Terung, which translates to the eggplant flower, is the first tattoo a Borneo male would receive.

 The Bunga Terung is a coming of age tattoo which marks the passage of a boy into manhood

The Bunga Terung has a spiral at the center of the eggplant flower the Tali Nyawa, which means the rope of life 

and is identical to the underside of a tadpole which symbolizes the beginning of a new life.
