In India, Camels Get Designer ‘Tattoos’ - Every year, Bikaner (largest city in India) Rajasthan—that’s mostly made up of desert—hosts a Camel festival. As part of the annual festival, camel contests are held—where camels are decked out elaborate draping, buckles, saddles and ‘tattoos’. The natives don’t use iron engraving, rather they just cut and dye the desert animal’s hair for three years—until they achieve their desired outcome of the ‘tattoo’ to parade the animal for the contest.
