The elder Chin women wear various patterns of tattoo on their faces and amber necklaces and earings. Thankfully this practise of tatooeing young girls to make than less attractive to prevent abduction from maruading tribes has stopped. Otherwise I am sure that this young girl would have had her pale skin tattoed by now. The amber is still worn and handed down through the family, the flower and thanakah is her own design. Maybe no more than 10 years old, maybe without a decent piece of clothign to her name, but so self-assured and so femine.
