Një set fotografish shfaqin një fis Infiand, ku gratë vënë “tapa” në hundë dhe “zbukurojnë” fytyrat e tyre me tato.

Këtë e bëjnë ato që t’i ndalin burrat e grupeve rivale që të mos i dhunojnë për shkak të bukurisë, shkruan DailyMail, transmeton Klan Kosova.

Apatianët e jashtëzakonshëm apo Tanisët si e thërrasin ata veten, gjurmojnë prejardhjen e tyre si migrues në Apatani Plateau në Lower Subansiri.

Ata janë të njohur për aftësisë në agrikulturë dhe traditën që të mos mbajnë të dhëna të shkruara. Kështu të dhënat gojore që kanë janë konvertuar në tregime popullore ndër vite, e të cilat kalojnë nga një gjeneratë tek tjetra.

Vajzat që lindin në këtë fis janë shumë të bukura, prandaj detyrohen që ta shëmtojnë veten vetëm e vetëm të mos abuzohen seksualisht nga fiset tjera.

Shihni disa fotografi, po kujdes pamjet për dikë mund të jenë të rënda!
An Apatani woman poses for a picture on October 2016 in Ziro Valley with dozens of beaded necklaces and a set of keys around her neck. One of those tales is the reason why many of the tribe's women have tattoos adorning their faces and large nose plugs in their nostrils. It is said that women of this tribe are extremely pretty and used to be abducted by men of neighbouring tribes for their beauty. In order to stop this from happening, the elders decided to start tattooing the faces of the women and inserting nose plugs from a very young age to make them look less appealing
Two Apatani women participating in a wedding function bring paddy for the newlyweds. One, on the left, is adorning her nose plugs and a tattoo on her face. When a journalist visited the tribe in October last year, some gave accounts of kidnapping, where Apatani women would be taken away and made wives, and believe that's how the practice was started - to hide their beauty

 The Apatanis or, as they call themselves the Tanis, trace their origin as a migratory tribe in the Apatani Plateau in Lower Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh, India. Today they are settled in the Ziro Valley area. Known for their agricultural skills, the Apatanis have a rich oral tradition and hardly any written records
A woman proudly displays the nose rings and tattoos inside her home. Despite the modification's dark origin, none of the women are ashamed of their nose rings or tattoos and believe it is part of their their identity. Called Tippei, these tattoos were done when an Apatani girl is about 10-years-old by the elder women
The women in the tribe with the unusual facial furniture were all around 45 years old or older, like this woman here, when the journalist visited India. It appears it is now dying out due to the tradition of inserting the nose plugs and face tattooing being banned by the government in the 1970s.
The tattoos, like the one running down the centre of this woman's face, create issues when people go out to the city for jobs and so the younger generation is not keen on carrying on with the practice. However, the elder women of the tribe consider the nose plugs and tattoos as an integral part of being a Tani woman. Ones who have the largest nose plugs have even been awarded. Over the years, this practice became a visual identification of being an Apatani woman. The remaining bearers of this practice appear to be proud of this identity
 The ink in the tattoos, seen here running down the centre of this woman's face, is made up of pig's fat mixed with soot from the fireplace. The girl's head would be held in place by the elders while one of them hand poked the motif. The Apatani women have a thick straight line tattooed from the forehead to the tip of the nose and five straight lines on the chin. The Apatani men also have a small T shape tattooed on their chins
