Last Face-Tattooed Woman of Myanmar.

From Daily Mail:

An old woman from the Chin ethnic minority group in Myanmar, which borders India and Thailand, shows off the tattoos she was given as a young girl to ward off attacks - particularly by neighbouring princes, who would kidnap girls to be concubines.

She was one of the last to get the markings, in a 200-year-old custom which has now died out.

Her firm but not tight lips depicts there are lots of eventful life experience that she wants to tell but not to everyone. Her bright eyes contradicts her aged wrinkled face showing lots of strong confidence, planned road ahead and expectations. Her meaningful eyes, wrinkles and lips tells that she is a lady with experience, endurance, perseverance, and assertiveness.
