Tattoo

Papua New Guinean women once tattooed every surface of their bodies, except their palms and soles. The process, accomplished with stones and leaves, is said to be very painful. If a young woman could undergo the tattooing in only two or three months, her bride price was very high, because she was strong. Today, some young women pursue different means of beautification.
