Also, older people in tribal have tattoos made on their face, hand and body. The tattoo was made using organic dyes and needles by hand. Even tattoo had meanings and was not just a fashion. These tattoos symbolized their tribe, art, culture and family history. Although the current generation does not have any more tattoo.
