Olive Oatman. Mohaves considered tattoos to be a form of identification in the afterlife. The tattoo was secured by pricking the skin in small regular rows with a cactus pine until the skin bled freely. The cactus spikes were then dipped in weed juice and blue stone powder which was then applied to the pinpricks on the face. These chin tattoos indicated that the woman was ready to embark in adult tribal life

(Hael-Khin?) Olive Oatman. Mohaves considered tattoos to be a form of identification in the afterlife.

Olive Oatman - kidnapped from her Mormon family in the Gila River (present-day Arizona) by the Yavapai Indians in 1851. Most of her family were murdered, but she and her sister, Mary-Ann were kidnapped. After receiving harsh treatment for a year, she was ransomed by a band of Mohaves. Olive went on to be accepted into the Mohave lifestyle and spent four years living with them.
If tattooed Eva on “Hell on Wheels” seems to have stolen Olive Oatman's chin tattoo, it's because she's based on her.

Real life inspiration: Olive Oatman (1837-1903) from Illinois was abducted by a Native American tribe (likely the Yavapai people), then sold to another (the Mohave people). She ultimately regained her freedom five years later. The story resonated in the media, partly owing to the prominent blue tattooing of Oatman's face by her captors.

"Woman in sensible armor! A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan. Often mistakenly referred to as “female samurai”, female warriors have a long history in Japan, beginning long before samurai emerged as a warrior class." Girl Power!!-
Rare photo of a female samurai. Women were always powerful. In Samurai life, everyone was trained in warfare. / another caption for this photo: Rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha, one of the female warriors of the upper social classes in feudal Japan
A rare vintage photograph of an onna-bugeisha. An onna-bugeisha (女武芸者?) was a type of female warrior belonging to the Japanese upper class. Many wives, widows, daughters, and rebels answered the call of duty by engaging in battle, commonly alongside samurai men. They were members of the bushi (samurai) class in feudal Japan and were trained in the use of weapons to protect their household, family, and honour in times of war. They also represented a divergence from the traditional "housewife" role of the Japanese woman. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as female samurai, although this is an oversimplification. Significant icons such as Empress Jingu, Tomoe Gozen, Nakano Takeko, and Hōjō Masako are famous examples of onna bugeisha.

Kalderash Roma's camp. 1892. Gypsies tried to demonstrate as many singes of wealth as possible. Men usually wore wide leather belts (very wide ones with several clasps) like Hungarian, Carpathian and Ukrainian peasants did. Gypsies kept gold coins inside. Sometimes squiffy men piled their treasures in front of each other to boast.

This picture is brought back the long lost memory, reminds me the wonderful childhood with my sister, I-Sing. We always walked to school, even in the raining days since we lived across the street from our elementary school, we supported each other in any obstacles, shared the glories and the secrets even our parents didn't know whether good or bad. All our schoolmates envied us because everybody knew that my sister and me were best friends, we had pig tails hair-do, wore clean uniforms and shoes plus we were so talented, won so many awards. Our friendship had been carried on through our adulthood until I permanently lost her a few years ago. I miss her everyday, miss the support and advice from her, miss her calling me, I-me especially in the morning. A sister, also a friend was the best gift from God to me indeed.
