Robert Moore SHAN FASHION DECREES GAY SKIRTS AND SUN SHADES FOR THE LADIES; FOR THE MEN-TATTOOING To these girls of Keng Tung State their Burma-made red parasols are indispensable in rain or shine. The young dandy displays rather less than the average area of skin decoration. Usually heavier patterns are picked, particularly on the legs. Favorite subjects for the tattoo artists are birds, animals, and people. Designs resembling crossword puzzles and life-story pictographs also are used.
