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

heritage - tells the story about how the Konyaks started tattooing.
