Globe Launch in Boracay

11:24 PM

It's interesting how the competition between mobile broadbands has gotten tougher. 

Tattoo, powered by Globe, recently introduced, a new online lifestyle website where subscribers can get a chance to "fuel their passions" through an array of exciting privileges and discounts from various brands.

Over the weekend, I couldn't believe I flew all the way to Boracay together with fellow bloggers from various fields, magazine editors, TV and print journalists, models and celebrities to participate in Tattoo's beach activities and witness the grand launch.

According to Dong Ronquillo, head of Tattoo, introducing means it's time to move on from the topic of which mobile broadband is cheaper or faster. It's now a battle of which one gives more than what  its users pay for. In a media press conference, he proudly presented Tattoo as a brand which wants to give its 1.3M subscribers the chance to "celebrate individuality and satisfy their lifestyles without limits."

Tattoo identifies five (5) different kinds of people which best represent the passions of our generation today: 
1) Trendsetter is a fashion fanatic
2) Adventurer goes to the coolest travel and dining destinations
3) Techie digs gadgets and the latest apps
4) Audiophile can't get enough of music downloads and news on concerts and artists
5) Culture Vulture is a bit of everything stated above including arts and movies

Whether you are a Trendsetter, Adventurer, Techie, Audiophile or a Culture Vulture, as long as you are a Tattoo Broadband subscriber, you can navigate and choose your favorite deals and perks. offers you exclusive downloads and subscriptions to over 50 partner websites and businesses such as games, music, tools and utilities, magazine and newspaper subscriptions, free surfing, discounts and added values on purchases.

You can surf the site for free - no load deduction for prepaid, just keep a maintaining balance of P5.00, and no charge to bill for postpaid. Make sure you sign-up first using your Tattoo Prepaid, Postpaid number or Tattoo@Home account number to access the site.

I have to say, the whole idea is impressive. From just a mere internet connection, your Tattoo subscription now serves like a "membership" similar to what they have at gyms, resorts or exclusive clubs and establishments. However, in an effort to be more critical about what I blog, and veer away from praise releases, I'll try to visit the site first, make sure I claim my freebies, get to experience the so-called Tattoo lifestyle and give a follow-up review on this new feature has to offer. 

Nevertheless, I can't deny that I was quite thrilled upon hearing that some of the freebies include free magazine subscriptions, and Pisobid discounts, Buy 1 Take 1 on Air Philippines tickets, 50% on Ayala Cinemas and free surfing (as in no charge) to sites like,,, and a few others. For the complete set of privileges, visit (for Tattoo users) and inquire at  (for non subscribers).

Take note though that the kind and amount of freebies will still depend on the type of lifestyle stick (for prepaid) or plan for postpaid and Tattoo@Home.

Overall, the launching of in Boracay was a very successful one and I'd love to see how this novel feature would change the name of the game between mobile (broadband) networks.

Disclosure: I was one of the bloggers for the "I Choose Tattoo" campaign last November 2011. Also, the trip to Boracay was courtesy of Globe Tattoo. For more photos, click here.
