I read that Ainu women tattooed their lips to resemble a beard, which was seen as aesthetically pleasing. But the tattoo was also supposed to keep evil spirits from entering the body. The markings on the hands also served a similar purpose. They would add more and more tattoos on the arms and lips as they grew older. 



Doubt is the enemy

But it also bring you closer to God

So in that spirit I want to know form all of you - have you ever felt doubt? What did you do? What reaffirmed your faith?

Please do get in touch!
