You are saying Tattoo, dreadlocks and men piercing their ears are strange to our culture.
Are you serious? It is very much part of our culture.
Anyone over 100 years old in Nigeria knows about tattoos.
Most had them on their arm and legs in the 1940’s and 50’s
They were permanent tattoos
You cannot say Dada (dreadlocks) is strange to our culture. There is a name for it and it’s part of our culture
Piercing was also part of our culture
Both men and women had pierced ears in the 1920’s and 30’s
So how can you then say that something our ancestors did is alien to our culture.

Samson had dreadlocks
“Do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards. “Do not cut your bodies for the dead, and do not mark your skin with tattoos. I am the Lord.
