Ainu tattooist Mai Hachiya cuts her thumb with a razor blade to create a tattoo at her apartment in Sapporo, Hokkaido Prefecture, northern Japan, July 3, 2019. Some Ainu worry the new museum complex is mostly meant to burnish Japan's international standing ahead of the Olympics. "I think it's possible it could end up becoming a theme park," said Hachiya. "People would come to see the dancing and other performances. It would be like a zoo." REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "KYUNG-HOON AINU" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

A Sole Hope volunteer uses a razor blade to cut out a female sand flea from a man's foot in Kalebera village, Jinja district, eastern Uganda August 6, 2015. The problem of jigger parasites, female sand fleas that burrow their way under skin, is widespread in the eastern, northern and northeastern parts of Uganda. Left untreated, the parasite can lead to secondary infections that can be fatal. NGO Sole Hope works with local and international volunteers to treat sufferers, removing the parasites either with safety pins or razor blades. Encouraging people to cover their feet is part of the battle against the parasite; treatment includes a free pair of shoes as very few of those affected are able to afford even sandals.

Kilimanjaro near the Kenya-Tanzania border in Kajiado December 13, 2014. Scores of young Maasais representing four manyattas - a barrack for warriors aged about 16-25 - competed against each other on Saturday for prestige, bragging rights and a prized breeding bull for their manyatta. The Maasai Olympics is a biennial event focused on ending Maasais' enduring cultural tradition of killing lions.

A Pokot woman holds a razor blade after performing a circumcision on four girls in a village about 80 kilometres from the town of Marigat in Baringo County, October 16, 2014. The traditional practice of circumcision within the Pokot tribe is a rite of passage that marks the transition to womanhood and is a requirement for all girls before they marry. More than a quarter of girls and women in Kenya have undergone genital cutting, according to United Nations data. Despite a government ban on the life-threatening practice since 2011, the long-standing tradition remains a rite of passage, particularly among poor families in rural areas.

Academics Benny Tai (R) and Chan Kin-man, founders of the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement, attend a pro-democracy rally in Hong Kong August 31, 2014. Some academics, including Tai and Chan, at the forefront of Hong Kong's fight for more democracy say they have become targets of death threats or other intimidation as the former British colony remains near-paralysed by the biggest protests since it returned to Chinese rule in 1997. Chan Kin-man, a professor of sociology at the Chinese University who has been on the frontlines of the protests, said he has a stack of envelopes containing death threats scrawled in Chinese characters. Benny Tai, a law professor at the University of Hong Kong, said he had also received death threats, some addressed to "The Devil", with one envelope containing a razor blade. Neither Chan nor Tai reported the death threats to police. Five other academics told Reuters they had suffered intimidation because of their activism. Picture taken August 31, 2014.
