CALOOCAN CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Many Filipinos skipped their Valentine’s celebration in favor of their Catholic tradition relating to Ash Wednesday.  They trooped to their parish churches to be blessed with ash on their foreheads.

But alas, some parishioners of the San Roque Cathedral in Caloocan City got the shock of their lives.  Little did they know that they were getting tattoos instead.

According to reports, when said parishioners tried to wipe off the ash from their foreheads because they felt some burning sensation, off came their skin as well.

Ah, the sacrifices one has to make as a devout Catholic. A cross tattoo.

There’s Dengavaxia, now there’s Ashfixia!
