The Pintados Festival is a cultural religious festival in Tacloban in view of the body-painting conventions of the old inked "pintados" warriors. In 1986, the Pintados Foundation, Inc. was framed by the general population of Tacloban to arrange this celebration out of appreciation for Sr. Santo Nino. The celebration, formally called Leyte Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival and furthermore known as the "Celebration of Festivals," is held yearly on June 29, the day of the Feast of the Senor Santo Nino de Leyte.
The most courageous warriors were vigorously decorated in tattoos which secured every last bit of their bodies, go to foot. Without a doubt, these men were in truth such an abnormal sight, to the point that western teachers thought of them as startling and ignoble upon their first looks of these warriors. Be that as it may, as time passed, they figured out how to see the tattoos as a piece of the life of local individuals and even as an indication of magnificence for them. With the progression of time, as the story is with all things, the old cleared a path for the new.

It gives us the chance to feel an uncommon direct affair, the experience of culture.The conventions of inking pintados and worshiping earth spirits were supplanted as modernization came.
