Shetala Mata

"A young south Indian Hindu devotee has her tongue pierced with a metal rod while participating in a religious procession held in praise of Hindu goddess Shetala Mata in Chandigarh on August 5, 2012. Shetala Mata is commonly called the goddess of small pox and devotees believe that worshipping her prevents them from contracting the disease." - From the Deccan Herald
