Tattooed Face Lady 1 Tattooing the faces

tattoo burma myanmar

Tattooing the faces of young women is a tradition that after many centuries in Myanmar has now come to an end. Beautiful girls from villages in the Chin state had their faces tattooed in order to taint their beauty and stop men from other tribes and kingdoms unwillingly taking them away and forcing them to marry. Now the practice has come to an end, with only a few last remaining generations of tattooed ladies existing today.
Tattooed woman, Pan Paung In elusive Chin

myanmar tattoo image

In elusive Chin State, women are famed for their tattooed faces. Traditional reasons vary slightly, from the Chin women being so beautiful that the menfolk tattooed their faces to disguise their beauty from marauding Burmese, to mothers tattooing their daughters in fear of the King taking them as concubines. These legends are centuries old, so in recent times people did it simply because everyone else was doing it. And now...everyone else is not. In the village of Pan Paung, this woman was the oldest remaining tattooed lady at age 70, while the youngest was 60. Sharp as a tack, this one. When asked if the tattooing hurt, she replied that it actually hurt twice...because she had to pay to have it done.
