Amazon Tribal Warriors
Photograph of two Amazon tribal warriors facing each other with spears in their hands in the Amazon jungle.  Note the long hair and preforated earlobes.  The appearance of various Amazon tribes depends on their culture.  For example, the tribe pictured above, have elongated earlobes that are characteristic of their tribe.  Many other tribes used characteristic tattoos to identify themselves, examples being the Mundurucú, Matis, Matses, Marubo, and Mayoruna tribes.  In particular, the Mundurucú were once the most feared headhunters in all of the Amazonia are were probably the most heavily tattooed of all indigenous Amazon tribes living in South America.
