Lars Krutak is a cultural anthropologist, photographer, and writer who has traveled the Indigenous world for over fifteen years documenting the traditions of tribal body modification. Wisdom. Shamanic Power. Protection. Healing. He is the author of The Tattooing Arts of Tribal Women, Kalinga Tattoo: Ancient and Modern Expres
