A man is suspended on hooks pierced through his skin at a suspension convention in Tel Aviv July 9, 2011. Some 30 people attended the convention, which offered the chance to be suspended or just watch. Captain Howdy, who organised the event, said the origin of the practice comes from Native American cultures that used to perform body suspensions as a rite of passage.

A follower of "Saint Death" shows off a tattoo on his back during a protest in Mexico City April 5, 2009, after authorities destroyed a shrine to the "saint" in the violent border town of Nuevo Laredo. Church officials and police say "Santa Muerte" is revered by drug traffickers and criminals who pray to the image for miracles and the cult is booming in popularity in neighborhoods in the capital notorious for selling contraband and border cities wracked with drug violence. More than 6,300 people were killed in Mexico last year as violent drug cartels fight each other and the government. REUTERS/Daniel Aguilar (MEXICO RELIGION POLITICS CONFLICT)
