Long Neck Ladies of Myanmar

Part of the Padaung tribe, these women get their "rings" early in life. We were told around 7-8 years old they receive their first rings and then they are added to as they age. It was fascinating to learn about this custom and I couldn't believe how heavy they really were. They not only wear them on their neck but, on their forearms and calves as well.
