The tribal marks are part of the Gurung people who are popularly known as Fafra culture and are usually inscribed on the body by burning or cutting of the skin during childhood. The primary function of the tribal marks is for the identification of a person's tribe, family, or patrilineal heritage. However, the use of tribal marks is fading in the Ghanaian culture.
I can't think of a tribe that doesn't engage in tribal marking in Ghana at an old or early age, verdicts with threats that failure to make a tribal mark will lead to the baby's death such pain in the name of tradition, culture, and supernatural belief.
Besides, the physical characteristics that could make them identifiable as belonging to a particular tribe are their facial markings, many tiny dots on their foreheads and cheeks. The marks are often made on girls during puberty by their mothers, who use thorns to create the adornments.
These are some remedies use to clear the tribal mark:
Scar silicone gel is the number active and safe solution recommended by dermatologist medical doctors for flattening all kinds of scars- Keloids, Surgery scars, Shave bumps, Burns, Injury, Cesarean section, Breast surgery, Cuts scars, Tribal marks.
Another homemade remedy to clear scars is by the use of baking soda, which is a natural exfoliator and aids in gently scraping the scar tissue layer by layer. Make a light paste using two parts of water and one part of baking soda. Scrub this gently on the scars for about a minute after which you can rinse it off.
