Pipe Smoking Lady

Chin state located in the remote, western part of Myanmar is the country’s poorest but most ethnically diverse region. Rarely visited by foreigners, Chin is home to more than 50 of Myanmar’s 135 recognised ethnical minorities. The highlight of a trip is a visit to villages and meeting the last living face-tattooed women of Chin tribes. Smoking the pipe is one of the tradition habit for local people but the tradition about tattooing faces is dying out. In the next few years it will become increasingly difficult to experience this fascinating habit.
