Neck Streching
Neck rings or neck-
rings are any form of
stiff jewelery worn as an
ornament around
the neck of an individual,
as opposed to a
loose necklace. Many
cultures and periods have
made neck rings, with
both males and females
wearing them at various
times.
Lip Plate
also known as a lip
plug or lip disc, is a form
of body modification.
Increasingly large discs
(usually circular, and made
from clay or wood) are
inserted into a pierced
hole in either the upper or
lower lip, or both,
thereby stretching it.
Finger Cutting
While most cultures mourn the loss of family
members, the Dani tribe in Indonesia must suffer
great physical pain in addition to emotional pain.
When a family member dies, the relatives must
cut off a segment of one of their fingers. This
practice is performed to satisfy ancestral ghosts.
Suttee or Self Cremation in India
widows who voluntarily lie by her dead
husband's side on his funeral pyre to
be burnt alive with the corpse.
Foot Binding
is the custom of applying painfully tight
binding to the feet of young girls to prevent
further growth.
Bathroom Ban
The Tidong are a group of people from northern
Borneo with a particularly uncomfortable wedding
custom. For the 3 days and 3 nights following the
wedding, both the bride and groom are prohibited
from using the bathroom. That means no urinating,
no defecating, and no bathing. They believe that
custom will lead to a long, happy, and fertile
marriage.
Baby Tossing in India
the people in Solapur village (situated in
Maharashtra state of India) to toss
newborn babies off from the terrace of 50
foot tower. There are people at the foot of
the tower holding sheets to catch the baby
safely. It is believed that this gives their
children good luck, long and healthy life,
and moreover, they will grow smart.
Carrying Pregnant women over coal
a husband should carry his
bride over a pan of burning
coals before entering their
home for the very first time.
Myth says that this strange
custom is performed to ensure
she will have an easy and
successful labor.
