The Apatani, also known as the Tanni, are a tribal group based in Ziro of Arunachal Pradesh, in India. Declared a world heritage site by UNESCO, the Ziro area is known for the conservation and cultivation techniques of the Apatani tribe performed without animals or machinery. Women of the Apatani Tribe are famous for the bizarre nose plugs (Yaru Hukho ) they’ve been wearing since times long passed. These Yaping Hullo are made of pieces of whole Cane, Apatani female tattoos themselves from their forehead to tip of the nose. They also tattoo their chin with five vertical lines. The tradition of the Apatani nose plug hasn’t been practiced by any woman born after 1970, and as time passes, this custom will probably soon be forgotten
