hindu devotees get cheeks pierced during religious procession

THAT's what we call devotion!

Check out the photos (below) of devotees of the Hindu Goddess Maha Mariamman getting their cheeks pierced during a religious procession in Amritsar, India on Sunday.

Very inneresting. We'd def be curious to hear more about this…although we're not so sure we'd ever try it ourselves. Ouchie!

What do U think about this religious ritual? Could U handle a piercing through your cheeks?
