La meravigliosa donna ritratta in primo piano si chiama Pa Leing e fa parte della tribù Uppu nello stato del Chin in Birmania, lei è una delle ultime undici donne tatuate nella sua tribù e ricorda l'esperienza del tatuaggio sul suo volto attraverso queste parole " Ricordo solamente di avere visto gli aghi, tutto quì, ci sono volute 5 ore per ricoprire tutto il mio viso", questo accadeva quando Pa Leing aveva solamente 8 anni.

beautiful shot of ethnic chin women and interesting caption; in the "smallness" of the world, I too photographed the same subject last January (photo posted here too) but I did not know about belonging to a specific tribe; congratulations and a greeting. mt

Hi Maurizio! It was the first village we visited when we arrived in Chin, the guide could not speak in Chin and we had an interpreter for those two days, I did not know of the existence of women with a fully tattooed face I asked why they were so different and I was told that it was a different tribe from the others and this is their ethnicity ... incredible to think that once these women resorted to this custom that what I understood was to avoid being picked up by the King as future brides !

You're right, this custom, as well as that of lengthening the neck with the rings, were designed to "ugly" women and make them less attractive.

Excellent both as a shot and a document. A widespread custom, albeit in different ways, even in the Middle East where tattoos on the face replaced the documents of recognition... but who knows if there was not a twofold purpose. It would be interesting to know.

A picture almost perfect, already stands out from the miniatures for details...
The blurred figure in the background is really effective.
Congratulations!
