Anyways, now that I got your attention, I'm obviously just kidding. This is body art at it's finest. The design is deliciously intricate and it just pops out and wows anyone who sees it. I wouldn't mind getting one myself, if I wasn't so scared of the idea of tattoos. Maybe I could get a fake one.
It looks like one of those Arabic sash/girdle things, the kind that bellydancers wear.
