This man was helping a devotee get his kavadi in order and his piercings in place. I found it interesting he was wearing a bluetooth earphone piece. I wonder if he would have taken a call if somebody rang.

“What?, yeah, kinda busy piercing somebody right now”.

“Huh?, yeah piercing his flesh with about 100 skewers”

” Hello? You still there?”

Another helper picking up small pots of milk to pierce into the devotee back and chest. I noticed he was wearing a power bracelet. I guess balance is important when doing a task this sensitive.
