A Chinese man has pierced his head with 2008 needles to commemorate the forthcoming Olympic Games in Beijing.
In a bizarre publicity stunt, Dr Wei Shengchu pierced the decorative needles in his head, face, hands and chest in the five colours of the Olympic rings.
The picture of Dr Wei’s was taken in Nanning, Southern China, and demonstrates the patriotic fervour among the Chinese people in the build up to September’s Games.
Dr Wei’s latest stunt was not the first time he had gained notoriety for sticking pins in his body…
What a freakish way to celebrate the Olympic Games.
