Madia (Sub tribe of Gond ) - Maharashtra - This photograph i had clicked in a small tribal village in Maharashtra . Seen in the photograph is an old woman who belongs to Madia tribe of Maharashtra . Her forehead and chicks are tattooed . She is wearing a sari in her traditional Madia tribal community style . Taking about her tattoos i think they are actual walking works of art , with her life story drawn onto her . Tattooing in Tribal India is a powerful and romantic way of expressing yourself as a culture . Traditional way of tattooing is still preserved in some of the tribal communities in India .
