She is one of the last tattooed face woman in Myanmar.
We met them in a remote village in the Chin mountains. These women who live in the mountains, but not very far from Bagan (where the kings lived), suffered this painful “art” on their faces for making them undesirable for the kings and in that way, they could continue living with their families in the mountains. Today, this practice is forbidden in Myanmar. They cannot speak even Burmese, they speak Chin language. Thanks a Chin guide that took us to them, we could hear and talk to them.
