Beginning with a project about the Lai Tu people of Myanmar in 2015, I began documenting the last tribal facial tattoos in Asia. This ongoing project has taken me to three countries so far with two more planned for this year. The goal is to bring these people’s faces and stories together before they disappear. The project and the first book can be seen at tattoosofasia.com. I’d love to have you along for the ride!
