Lenten Rites Flagellation

Self flagellation is undertaken by hundreds of males who have their backs cut to promote blood flow before whipping themselves with bamboo-tipped burillos.
Faces covered to hide their identity, they walk the streets whipping themselves, spreading droplets of blood in all directions along their route.
