Woman belonging to the Chin ethnic group. Her face is tatooed as most of the older women in this area.
This pratice (face tatooing) is becoming
less common for young women and teens since the government discourage it. Nevertheless, in remote area,
it is very common to see even young women with tatoo on the face.
