Hari Posted May 25, 2004 Report Share Posted May 25, 2004 In my family history I have been told by my mother that 3 of my great grand mothers had tattoos.My mothers Daadi and Nani, and my fathers Nani.My mum tells me they had them on their chins, throat, hands and other areas of body. Now, this is kind of funny, because none of their daughters, my grandmothers and grand-aunties had any tattoos.With the exception of one grand-auntie.Don't you think it's interesting?Were these passing trends in Panjabi cultural history, or a cultural tradition? I think it's marvellous, that my great grandmothers were so cool.Also, they would wear lots of jewellry, nose rings, many ear rings.My mother says her Nani's ears would be covered in pierced ear rings. This is real Panjabi culture!I think our sweet ladies of the Satguru Nanak Panth, should adopt the traditional jewellry of their anscestors. Then, I tell you, they will be like shining stars, and not frumpy shy-girls!! Out with the frumpyness, in with the tattoos!!Celebrate your femeninety ladies!Honour your anscestral Goddesses. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
