One of the ethnicity's most unique traditions that has almost been vanished is the practice of ‘tattooing’ girls faces.​

Helena tells how she had her face marked. “My dad said I used to be a naughty girl and decided to mark me so I could be quieter. He picked up some bones of a little squirrel that lives in the jungle, prepared an ink with and genipap and started drawing. All I remember is that it was really painful."

يُعتبر وشم وجوه الفتيات أحد أروع التقاليد الخاصة بهذه الإثنية وهي آيلة إلى الزوال.

تخبرنا هيلينا كيف تمّ وشم وجهها. "قال لي والدي إنني اعتدت أن أكون فتاةً مشاكسة لذلك قرّر وشمي كي أكون أكثر هدوءًا. فاختار عظام سنجاب يعيش في الأدغال وأعدّ حبراً من فاكهة الجنباية وبدأ بالرسم. ولا أذكر سوى أنني شعرت بألمٍ شديد."
