      Nice. Are these dyes for clothing?

      Update: no... From Wikipedia:

      Tikka pronounced with a hard 't' can mean a forehead mark or a needle.

      * South Asian men and women sometimes wear a mark on the forehead, a dot, smudge, or lines of red, black, or ash-grey. The woman's mark is most often called a bindi. It can be worn as a decoration, by women of any religion, or as a Hindu religious observance. The mark worn by some Hindu men is called a tikka. The most common tikka is red powder applied with the thumb, in an upward stroke.

      Of course, the photos don't do the colors justice!
