An old Lady from Rewalsar

I took this photo after a crazy ride on himalayan roads, walking the small city of Rewalsar. This type of a tattoo was very popular among some north indian tribes as a privelege and a sign of high social level. Nobody does tattoes like this since 50s, so imagine the age of this lady:) I saw an old lady passing by, she noticed me with a camera and frowned at me.
