Scarifications on a woman shoulder in Surma tribe - Omo Kibbish Ethiopia

Surma tribe shoulder with scarifications, Kibbish, Ethiopia. The scarifications are part of the seduction in the Omo tribes. They use a spine from a tree to pull the skin, and cut it with a razor blade. The razor blade is shared, so you can imagine the consequences... The people must not show the pain, and do not show it when the scarifications is made on their body.
