A Chinese man has pierced his head with 2008 needles to commemorate the forthcoming Olympic Games in Beijing.


Dr Sheng shows off the decorative needles worn to mark the Olympics

In a bizarre publicity stunt, Dr Wei Sheng pierced the decorative needles in his head, face, hands and chest in the five colours of the Olympic rings.

The picture of Dr Sheng’s was taken in Nanning, Southern China, and demonstrates the patriotic fervour among the Chinese people in the build up to September’s Games.

Another Chinese man had the symbol of the Beijing Olympics tattooed on his forehead, the Games’ mascots on his chest and neck and various other images, including dragons and the Great Wall of China, tattooed all over his body.
Interesting. Barking mad and twisted but interesting.

Ouch!
