Nose Plug – India
In India, beauty is often seen in a different light than what Westerners are used to. There are plenty of techniques and practices that focus on enhancing one’s inner beauty rather than just their physical appearance.
The women of the Apatani tribe in India traditionally wear nose plugs. These are inserted into the nostrils like a gauge and play an important role in their culture. As you can see from the photo, they also have enlarged nostrils.
