Taken in Myanmar. Chin State.
I took photo of these people as the history of tattoo-ing on their faces were really interesting.
Chin people tattooed on their faces for some reasons.
Long time ago there were kings ruling Burma who capture these girls and kept them as their wives.
Chin People were so afraid to serve the kings as their wives , so these people started to tattoo on their faces which would make them ugly so that the kings would not have interests on them.
