At 77, Rabaiya recalls that she received her tattoos at separate times in her life. Her first tattoo, called burnus and found on the forehead, was given to her at the age of seven. When she had her first son, she tattooed her chin. Later, at the age of 30, she received a tattoo above the ankle. Her love of the tattoos throughout her life was something that her sister Louasna also shared – so much so that Louasna even tattooed herself without an adasiya. Image by Yasmin Bendaas.
