Comments: Aaju Peter, a Greenland Inuit now living in Nunavut, Canada. Facial tattoos were a sign of beauty in historic times and for this woman is now a display of respect for her heritage. The V on her forehead signifies a mountain. Facial tattoos were thought to please the sun and hand tattos were thought to please the sea.
