Camel butt - Pakistan Camel Art : It takes 3 years to make an engraved tattoo on a camel. During the first 2 years, trimming occurs as the hair grows out. They then continue to trim and dye the camel hair.
This beautifully shorn camel hails from the city of Bikaner in northwest Rajastan, a state in India. Every year in January, the state government organizes a camel festival where beautifully decorated camels like this one are put on display.
Thousands of visitors flock to Bikaner, India for the desert festival awaiting the camel races. Owners with sharp scissors transform their camels into breathing works of art by shaving their coats to make room for traditional Indian patterns.
