TATTOOS often become the reflection of one’s attitude and character especially with the choice of design permanently inked on someone’s body.

For Magnolia point guard Jio Jalalon, his tattoo doesn’t only reflect his personality, but also mirrors how important his family is to him and how he cherishes and loves them.

The former Arellano University star shared to SPIN Life the reason behind the new tattoo on his left arm when we caught up with him on Wednesday, after their 109-83 win over Columbian Dyip at the Araneta Coliseum.

    When asked if he would still add new ink on his body, the former Chiefs superstar said with a smile, “Wala na.”
