The Tattoo DoctorsUnknown - 2014
Most people in Myanmar believe in Theravada Buddhism, an ancient doctrine incorporating occult beliefs which are omnipresent in Burmese culture; the Congregations of the Superior Way originated from this blend. In these Buddhist societies, disciples acquire esoteric powers, which help them heal and combat spirits. Their therapeutic arsenal consists of religious incantations, plants, tattoos, and alchemy. Bernard Fontanilles meets Aung Myo Hein, one of the Masters of the Superior Way. The symbols on his skin are a mark of his rank, and give him his power.
