Kelabit Lady's earlobes, Sarawak Malaysia    Like tattoo, once, extended earlobes is part of kelabit culture and were regarded as a sign of beauty. Everyone would have them done. The earlobes that are pierced with a sharp bamboo or needle will be slowly enlarged by hanging a pair of brass ear rings called hornbill ear rings. However, this practice has since slowly disappeared.    http://www.flickr.com/photos/tree22-fting/516137631/
