* This is used in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', where the turians all have facial markings defining the wearer as a member from one of the colonies where they were born, all stem from some sort of civil war. For example the Turian Councilor is from Tridend and Garrus Vakarian hails from Parthia.
** Not all of the turians do this. It is mentioned in the Codex that turian culture considers turians who forgo facial markings untrustworthy, owing no allegiance to anyone else. As it happens, more than one turian villain in the games is barefaced, such as Warden Kuril who tries to capture Shepard and their squad. ''[[TooDumbToLive Tries.]]''
** The term "barefaced" is also a slang term used by Turians to denote a politician.

* The native people of New Zealand, the Maori, traditionally decorate their face and body with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ta_moko ta moko]], in order to indicate status and rank and attract partners. It should be said that it isn't "paint" but rather grooves put into the skin and marked with pigment made from fat and soot.
