MURSI TATTOO AND LIP PIERCING
Mursi is One of the Ethiopian tribe living in the southern part of the country. The tribe has its own lifestyles such as haircuts, dressing, body tattoos and lip piercing with stretching circle clay plates. These body tattoos and lip piercings are entirely different and unique from the rest of the world. It’s too hard and painful. Beauty is depending on the culture and society's acceptance. Their body tattooing and lip piercing are expressions of beauty and heroism. Now this unique culture is because of globalization's stare vanishing, at the same time few European and Western people or communities start using it as a fashion. Discretion Here now to express and showing on my bag to introduce the culture to the generation and the rest of the world.
