    Dyeing one’s teeth black? Hmm… This is interesting, why do they do it?
    Love your drawing.

  • It was made for a school work about an article about this, It’s difficult for me explain it in english. I try. Ohaguro was used in Japan about 17th Century as a beauty symbol, and sometimes indicated that the woman with black teeth was married. Lately some girls started to rebel against it when it became an obligation. I think, maybe I’m wrong

    In what culture so they do this??? Well, at least when they get old they won’t have to worry about yellowing teeth!!

  • Haha this is true.
    It is done in Japan about the 17th Century, but you can check it, I’m not sure at all
