This September photographer Lars Krutak is releasing his new book, “Spiritual Skin: Magical Tattoos and Scarification”, and below are two of the photos from the book taken on journeys in 2011. The picture on the left is of a Kayan man tattooed in the Penan style by a Penan tattooist, and the one on the right shows Iban tattooing at Entalau Longhouse, Sarawak.

Welcome back Shannon! I have been a long time reader of your posts and followed you on zentastic when you moved. Culturally significant modification has always been something that interests me and I am glad you are bringing it back to BME!
I missed these information rich posts and can’t wait to see more.
