Came across this on tumblr. I recognize this tattooed woman from a book I have on tribal tattoos from across the world. The photo was taken in the 1920's somewhere in Taiwan and I'm pretty certain she belongs to a Taiwanese aboriginal tribe known as The Saisiat people. I remember once telling an ex boyfriend that Taiwanese had aborigines only to be told that aborigines only existed in Australia. Funny how some people would rather insist on their own ignorance than acknowledge that the world might be different from what they know.
