Extreme cheek piercings

November 2, 2009

From some religious festival of vegetarians in Phuket, apparently. After I got over the initial “yuck” factor, I couldn’t help consider the obvious hygiene issues.

For example, using a pineapple just can’t be very sanitary:

Here’s another example. Is this like having earrings? As in, are there always permanent holes in these guys’ faces? Does it impact their ability to eat?

And this was just creepy – I kept thinking of that bearded guy in Pasadena who hung out years ago at the Radio Shack…he’d tried to shoot himself in the mouth with a rifle, but instead of dying, he only blew away his mandible and most of his tongue.
