Engels said the family tried to convince Epifania to give up the idea of getting more tattoos, but she refused.
“Out of concern for her health, we tried to convince her not to do so, but to no avail. She scolded me, saying she had given birth to 18 children, so getting tattoos wasn’t a big deal,” Engels added.
