I just watched an episode of the television show 'Tattoo Hunter' television show - some of you may have seen this episode on the Discovery Channel. Tattoo anthropologist Lars Krutak visits the Kaningara tribe, near the Sepik River, and takes part in a long initiation process to receive their crocodile scars.

Well worth your time - lots of great footage of the arts and carvings of that area.

Lars has a pretty good website too - the following is a link to his article on tattooing in Polynesia
