Unusual Tribal Piercings of a Papua New Guinea Tribesman

Photo: Eric Lafforgue

French photographer Eric Lafforgue took this photo of a Hagener, a Tjos warrior/tribesman from Mount Hagen, Papua New Guinea. The Tjos people, who first saw a white man just 70 years ago, love to wear modern elements in their tribal piercings and make up.

Uno no debe de cojerlo todo de mala forma cuando la gente comentan en las cosas que para ellos, no son normal. Este seƱor no es cosa rara para usted, master, pero la verdad es que esto no se ve todo los dia en otros lugares. Como dise mi Mami, cojelo con take it easy.

Pardon my horrid spelling and grammar, or lack of accents. I speak Spanish better than I write it, and sadly, it's my first language. *sigh*

Master, lo interesante de esto es la convergencia de culturas y conceptos como "progreso" y lo "tradicional". No es una burla.
