The Phuket face-piercers

 Taoists in Phuket, Thailand, show the strength of their beliefs by taking part in ritualistic self-mutilation and pain trials forb the annualNine Emperor Gods Festival.

The Sun

These include running over hot coals and piercing their bodies with a bizarre – and stomach-turning – variety of objects.

Swords, musical instruments, bicycles and even a model boat are just a few of the things seen pushed through people’s cheeks and tongues at the festival.
