Indonesian street festival Hundreds of men and women pierce their faces with skewers and swords
Hundreds of men and women pierce their faces with skewers and swords 'because they believe they are possessed by supernatural powers' for Indonesian street festival 

Dozens of people dressed in bright costumes - know as 'tatungs' - hit themselves with machetes and swords and walked over beds of nails - all while apparently not suffering any injuries. A number of those in the parade seemed completely transfixed as they marched to the sound of loud music. A 'tatung' is someone who lives around Singkawang in Borneo and are believed to possess supernatural powers which mean they do not feel pain when hit with sharp weapons and are considered healers.
