There are 5 different ways of putting the tattoos on: dots, spider, lines, curls, almost black.
We continue walking to each village take about 1,5 hours. The Chins are mostly Christians with a variety of all beliefs from Methodists to Catholics. In each village we will see houses decorated with buffalo corns. These are from animals called Mithan a cross between a domestic cow and a wild Gaur.
