KAREN STATE – Tattoo shops in Myawaddy Town at Thai-Myanmar border have been forced to close by junta council.
The junta’s municipal and the police issued a statement and ordered to close all the tattoo shops in Myawaddy starting from June 10.
An owner of a tattoo shop in Myawaddy said that the junta council did not give any reason for forcing the closure.
Junta’s lackeys told the shops owners that they did not want to see even the name “tattoo” and asked to remove including the pictures.
Warning letter was issued and threatened that legal action will be taken if the shop was not close down.
There are around 30 tattoo shops in Myawaddy Town.
Last month, in May, tattoo shops in Hpa-An were also forced to close.
