‘The boy with the drogang tattoo’: Netizens share Paolo Duterte memes
Twitter users speculate over the alleged ink Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte has on his back

MANILA, Philippines – Does Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte have a dragon tattoo, and what exactly does it look like?

This was the question on many netizens’ minds on Thursday, September 7, during the Senate investigation into the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of methamphetamine or shabu into the Philippines.

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV asked the vice mayor if he had a tattoo on his back, which the President’s eldest son affirmed. Trillanes then asked if the tattoo was “colored and a dragon-like figure,” but Paolo invoked his right to privacy several times. Trillanes even insisted that the vice mayor take his shirt off on the Senate floor, but the latter refused.

Trillanes claimed the tattoo was proof of Paolo’s alleged membership in a Chinese transnational organized crime syndicate. 

Netizens took to Twitter to speculate over whether the vice mayor does indeed have a tattoo, and gave humorous suggestions as to what it could look like. Here’s a sampling:
