I don’t remember if i posted about this last year, but here is  some scar work i did on a young, Native American girl. In her Blackfoot  tribe it is customary to have a line scarred around their arm for each  year they’re alive. It is known as Ponn Miistis, which literally  translates to “the rings of a tree”. When they run out of room on one  arm they move to the other, then the legs, but apparently their average  life expectancy is only 43.
Anyhow, her parents are more modernized now and didn’t want her  having this done while she was growing up. She was intrigued by her  grandfather’s rings, which covered his arms and legs, so decided to come  to me from Montana to catch up. Last year i worked on her upper arm and  finished it up this time. She’s 24 now.
She promises to be back every year for another line, too!”
