The thing about Yoruba tribal marks is that they come in different size, length and shapes depending region.

It was once a form of identity.

aww what a shame. And here I was praying that you've give your children one of those simple one-line tribal marks.

I love the Fulani ones, they're so artistic.

Tribal marks if done in moderation are quite hot. It accentuates beauty.

My favorite tribal marks; single and double horizontal/vertical lines.

All the people that i know who have tribal marks are regretting the day they got it and all of them are trying as much as possible to remove. Go and ask KIng Sunny Ade how he's being trying to remove that scar from his face.

LOL Wow the weed you smoked must be highly expensive. I trust you nau.
First of all, your claim of "everybody" cannot be validated. And when did Sunny Ade tried to remove his scar?
All the people I know with tribal marks likes it, if the marks are in moderation.

Look at KSA's face in the 90s and compare to his face today and tell me you don't notice the difference. He's succeded in reducing it to the barest minimum.

It is possible, I do not know.
Certainly Africans circumcised do not think a reverse process.
I understand that integration into a Western society, with such marks can lead to discrimination. But discrimination can give marks for the different language, or the color ...
The presence or absence of marks ensures that there is no discrimination. The xenophobic always find some reason, regardless of marcks.
I see in Africa a deep sense of inferiority to the white and especially to Europe. The trademarks, playing a role at the time, now play another. I see with disgust, that inferiority complex, this need Europeanised, that taste for wanting to be what in reality is impossible to be.
I feel sorry for the permanent sense of dependence and slavery of some Africans, for having forgotten their own roots and culture.
Some say that slavery is over, but the chains are not yet broken, and no heavier than l chains as that self is placed.
I hope I have offended anyone.
My sincere compliments.
