Tinted Beauty

Have you read about this before? This is leaving me with a mixed feeling...
Why Chin Women had Tattoos on their Face: 
The Chin were adored for their beauty and King’s would come to villages to steal men’s wives. As a measure against their women being stolen, village elders started tattooing teenage girls to make them ‘ugly’. 
The tradition stuck and over generations eventually lost its original meaning of ugliness and came to represent courage, beauty and strength.
