The tattoed face woman of Chin tribe
Facial tattoed was once a tradition in rural area of myanmar among the chin tribe. The initial purpose of the tattoed done on their women face were to avoid from being kidnapped by their invaders. Later on ,the tattoed was done as a symbol of beauty. However, this custom is no longer permitted by Burmese authorities.
