Para mapahiya! Paolo Duterte to show back tattoo when Trillanes falls ‘to the ground’


Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte may have refused to show his tattoo on the back at the Senate, but he’s willing to bare it “when the right time comes.”

Specifically, Paolo plans to show the tattoo when Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, who dared him to expose it at the Senate hearing on the P6.4-billion shabu shipment controversy, falls “to the ground.”

“When the time comes that he fell to the ground, when his wings were broken because he flew so high, I will show it,” he told reporters Tuesday (September 12) in Davao City.

“Of course, you annoy your enemies until they break their brains, especially the yellow types and also those on social media, who are like fools when they (post). Let them eat the dragon. Not now,” Paolo added.

During the Senate hearing on September 7, Trillanes accused Paolo of being a member of an international triad involved in crimes, including smuggling.

The senator said proof of Paolo’s membership in the group was his back tattoo, which supposedly had “secret digits.” He dared the vice mayor to have a photo taken of his body ink so it could be decoded by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency.

Paolo said he has asked his brother, Sebastian, to tell the tattoo artist who drew on him not to post a photo of his body ink.
