  • History

    Can anyone tell me where I can find detailed information on the history or various tribal face painting? I'm looking for designes of face and body paint, the significance and meaning of each, what designs were used by which tribes, family paint, painting occasions, and anything else, including possible time periods for each. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

    One red line straight across the face means you are following the red road.

    One black line straight up and down means you are following the black road.

    Two white lines across your face means you come and go on the white road.

    Two green lines up and down your face means you're double environmentally conscience.

    Two lines up and down your face coupled with two lines across means you're ready to play tic-tac-toe.

          all brown face paint means you've been rolling in the mud.

          Red line over your mouth means you've drank to much strawberry juice.

          Blue line over your mouth means you've had one to many snowcones.

          Purple line over the forehead means you slept outside and used a rock for a pillow...hopefully you win the next contest and can buy a tent, sleeping bag and pillow

                    For females:

                    Black circles around eyes means its time for new mascara.


                    For males:

                    One black circle around your eyes means your wife found out....

                    Two black circles around your eyes means your girlfriend found out that your wife found out.

                          May I quote your first post on another forum? I want to show off my drawing, but it won't make any sense without your description.

                          Thanks!
