Scarification






Keloids are formed by cutting the skin with a knife or razor, pulling the skin up with a fish hook and stuffing the wound with soot. The skin heals over the soot, creating prominent bumps. The Tiv people of Nigeria are among the groups who find keloids aesthetically pleasing and create motifs on their bodies out of them.
