epa03095174 A close up view of a Hindu devotee who has his skin pierced before taking part in a traditional ceremony during the annual Hindu festival of Thaipusam in Singapore, 07 Febuary 2012. Thaipusam is a celebration of the birthday of the Hindu deity Subramaniam and marked on the first full moon in January/February in the Tamil calendar. It and an occasion for devotees to show the sincerity of their faith by piercing the body and carrying a kavadi, a cage-like structure decorated with peacock feathers and aluminum plates which show images of Hindu deities, on a four km procession. Devotees prepare for the celebration by cleansing themselves through prayer, celibacy and fasting for 48 days before before the festival. EPA/STEPHEN MORRISON
