( 18 SG ) Piercing festival in Thailand (warning: don't see this if you are a heart patient)

In late September and early October in Thailand, an unusual vegetarian festival will be held. It is called the Nine Emperor Gods festival. They celebrate the festival to give them good health and peace of mind, these people during the festival, which lasts 9 days, must comply with many rules. During these days they do not eat meat, drink alcohol, have sex or wear white clothes, and must maintain body hygiene and kitchen accessories. What’s really spectacular is sticking various objects through the face: knives, sabers, saw, glasses, spear. Apparently, every drop of blood, and every scar is a gift for purifying the soul. This expression of devotion and love to the gods during the ceremony is often very creepy and bizarre, but always spectacular.
