OMO VALLEY TRIBES
Pretty much, I think this lip ring is so pretty and I want it desperately. People say it's horrendous, i say it's just stunning. I want it and I don't really care what people will think.
Things I want!
The Mursi women are famous for wearing plates in their lower lips. These lip discs are made of clay. Girls are pierced at the age of 15 or 16. Similar body ornaments are worn by both sexes of the Suyá people, a Brazilian tribe.
