Naga has a history of Headhunting. Only a successful headhunter was allowed to tattoo his face and body.but now almost all of Naga people are Christian, so they don't hunt a head anymore. so Young men make a tattoo not for traditional reason but for fashion. I went to Mon district of Nagaland at festival season. I met him in the small village. He sang a traditional song and danced a traditional dance while I taking a photo. He wear the traditional accessory and modern clothes. Naga people are living between tradition and modernity.
