Cheek and tongue piercing


In Asia, there are quite strange rituals often associated with self-mutilation. To show their asceticism and cleanse karma, believers pierce their cheeks and tongue, and then arrange a festive procession.

This type of self-torture occurs on the holidays of Dussehra, Thaipusam and Shiva Gajan.

Probably India.
