Human kind has a long history of body ornamentation. From the more permanent body modifications like tattoos and piercings, to temporary ones like makeup, body painting, hairstyling and colouring, to wearable objects like jewellery, accessory, clothing, and other personal possessions, the varieties are endless. Body ornamentation has its practical and functional values, and furthermore it reflects cultural values like the aesthetics and ethics of a society.
