Lip plates, disks, and labrets were a fairly common practice across Africa through the mid 20th century.  Today in Africa only the Mursi people in Ethiopia, the Nuba in Sudan, and the Lobi in West Africa continue to wear their lip disks, pegs or plates, as this form of body modification is a diminishing practice around the world.
