Facial scarification or tribal marks as popularly called in Nigeria is an integral part of some ethnic groups in Nigeria.
These marks come in various forms and serve primarily as a form of identification for families, tribes, lineage, to show prestige, the reincarnation of a relative, and more.
They are usually vertically or horizontally drawn curves or lines on cheeks.
