Mursi Women keep it classy!
"Mursi have a lot of imagination to decorate themselves! They loved the magazine…"- Eric Lafforgue, Photographer.
Mursi women wear giant lip plate, which is made of wood or terra-cotta, as a sign of beauty. When they are ready to marry, teenagers start to make a hole in the lip with a wood stick, which will be kept for one night, and is removed to put a bigger one. Few months after, the lip plate has its full size, and the girl is seen as beautiful by the men. They have to remove the lower incisors to let some space for the disc. Sometimes the lip is broken by the pressure of the lip plate. Which may cause a problem for the girl because men may consider her as ugly, she won’t be able to marry anyone in the tribe apart the old men or the sick people. Furthermore, women and men are shaved because they hate hairiness. Both like to make scarifications on their bodies. Women as a beauty sign, men after killing animals or ennemies as competition for agricultural and grazing land has led to inter-group-conflicts.

"By establishing the genetic links between the two adults and two children buried together in one grave, we have established the presence of the classic nuclear family in a prehistoric context in Central Europe — to our knowledge the oldest authentic molecular genetic evidence so far," - Wolfgang Haak of the University of Adelaide, Australia.

Otzi, “Iceman”, the world’s oldest fully preserved human body was found in September 1991 near the Similaun glacier, in the Otztaler Alps of South Tyrol.
Iceman had group tattoos, short parallel vertical blue lines, on both sides of his lower spine, on his left calf and right ankle, his wrist, and a blue cross on his inner right knee.
The tattoos may be made with soot that contained glittering, colorful precious stone crystals. At their time the tattoos were believed to have a therapeutic quality, aimed at relieving the arthritis which he had in his neck, lower back, and right hip.
Sidenote: Hmmmm interesting,I wish i had some awesome backstory to my tattoos lol. supposedly brad pit got Otzi, tattooed on his arm.
Isotopic composition of his hair suggest that he had been a stict vegetarian for the last few months of his life! Awesome!!
