AINU TATTOO

04754500

The completed lip tattoos of women were significant in regards to Ainu perceptions of life experience. First, these tattoos were believed to repel evil spirits from entering the body (mouth) and causing sickness or misfortune. Secondly, the lip tattoos indicated that a woman had reached maturity and was ready for marriage. And finally, lip tattoos assured the woman life after death in the place of her deceased ancestors.

Apart from lip tattoos, however, Ainu women wore several other tattoo marks on their arms and hands usually consisting of curvilinear and geometric designs. These motifs, which were begun as early as the fifth or sixth year, were intended to protect young girls from evil spirits…Other marks were placed on various parts of the body as charms against diseases like painful rheumatism.

Hello, I’m away in Amsterdam helping Patrick Gildersleeves with his AWESOMO POWERA art show. It is full of massive felt-tip drawings and small and big intricate drawings of amusing things with influences like Aztec/Inca/Mayan type imagery. If you are anywhere near Amsterdam this weekend, come see! It’s the last weekend it’ll be open for.
