postscript on the way
The copyright page: illustration: Xishuangbanna trip, visited a 10 villages in county. Can say, browsing the tattoo Dai status. In addition, we also ask the tattoo phenomenon Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture of ethnic studies expert. In this process, the deepest impression is their view of the Dai tattoo. The field investigation before, had done the research literature on the desk China minority tattoos, many papers, works and discusses the cause of tattoos, including totem worship, marriage taboo, adult baptism, the pursuit of beauty. Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture Nationality Institute director Dai tattoo rock incense summarized four functions: the symbol, decoration, spells and prayers. He did not emphasize the tattoo as a symbol of class hierarchy, record of Zhu Mengzhen's "the southwest local mind": "(DAI) men are written to the lower body tattoo, don't poor, Yi Qing to leg ministry, eye to tattooing to the waist, Tu Guan Qing to milk." "The color is also great, most noble is still red, civilians with ink." The expression of the desire to pray tattoo. This visit is the first day we arrived banna. Therefore, to the countryside, tattoo Dai gave me the impression of change: tribal chiefs head wearing crested, into flat and good for common people. For 10 days, we can see the tattoo status is indeed close -- mostly generation farming, some special is done some bodyguards, but also need to toast toast village, usually at home farming. We cannot state that civilian Dai tattoo, because starting from as people marked role, Dai is everyone tattoos, including tribal leaders. Tattoo as a symbol of courage, may also make the complicated and magnificent aristocratic tattoo with the ordinary people. But undeniable is, today's tattoo Dai, is different from the historical records.
