Editor's Choice - Picture of the Day - October 2, 2011

A devotee of Jui Tui shrine, with plastic tubes running through his pierced cheek, takes part in a procession celebrating the annual vegetarian festival in Phuket October 3, 2011. The festival celebrates the local Chinese community's belief that abstinence from meat and various stimulants during the ninth lunar month of the Chinese calendar will help them obtain good health and peace of mind. Devotees demonstrate their faith and devotion to the gods by piercing themselves during the festival. (Reuters/Dario Pignatelli)
