DESIGN STASH / FADING INK DIARIES PART IV
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 29-Apr-15






In the year 2011, we set out on a mission to document the dying tradition of tattoo making among the several Naga tribes, who practiced the art in the past before the advent of Christianity. We travelled across the 11 districts of Nagaland to nine different communities – Ao, Chang, Khiamnuingan, Konyak, Phom, Pochury, Sangtam, Yimchungru and Tikhir. 

As we spoke to the elders and took photographic evidence of their tattoos, it was clear that like them, the tradition of tattoos was fading away and will probably end with them. 

Fading Ink Diaries is a four-part series - Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
"Fading Ink - The Dying Art of Traditional Naga Tattoos" was a documentary produced by Design Stash team in 2011.
