Edie, 40, tattoo artist and owner of Borneo Ink

"I collect tattoos when I travel, especially to Europe, US, Canada and New Zealand. It's said that the further you are away from home, the more prestigious the tattoo would be.

That said, my Iban culture will always remain true to me.

One of my tattoos explained: a 'buah engabang labuh' on my left arm, a type of cash crop that grows by the river and its leaves and branches droop like a propeller. It's also known as a deco motif."
