They numbed the person's skin, made shallow incisions in the person's skin using a sharp object like an animals tooth, then rubbed charcoal into the cuts to make the tattoos black. Boys were often given tattoos to mark their transition from boy to man. They also made ornaments to put on necklaces. These were usually made out of rock or snake vertebrae. They put the necklaces on graves when someone, most often the men, died.
