At first glance, this man appears to have four large, green nipples. On closer inspection, they are adornments suspended strategically from surface piercings on his chest. Is this a form of religious expression, or is it a gender-bending cry for attention?
To be a member of most Western churches, one only has to dress appropriately and give an offering each Sunday. In other countries, showing your faith can be more sacrificial in nature, where individuals endure extreme fasting, body piercing (or modifications), and other extreme physical acts of sacrifice. The matter boils down to this; do physical sacrifices lead to spiritual bliss, or are they just symbolic in nature? I guess to find out the answer, we would have to put ourselves in these people’s shoes, ah, I mean ‘skins’, to find out.
