Tue, 14 Feb 2023 Source: Michael Djan

Cultures around the world have their own unique traditions and customs, and some of them may seem unusual or even bizarre to outsiders.

One of the cultural practices we want to consider is scarification.

Why do people do scarification?

Scarification is a form of permanent body modification that involves cutting or burning a pattern or design onto the skin.

Traditionally, within indigenous cultures, people may perform scarification for ritualistic purposes, such as rites of passage or to prepare children for adulthood.

It is commonly performed in African and indigenous cultures and is seen as a form of self-expression and identity.

These are just a few examples of the strange and unusual cultural practices from around the world.

They offer a glimpse into the diverse beliefs, traditions, and customs that make up of the human culture.
