The world has had its own history of tortures and punishments inflicted upon prisoners and those accused of crime. And many of them have been atrocious to an extent that they can be deemed inhumane.

We came across a Reddit thread asking people "What are some of the most messed up torture devices used in history?" and decided to do some research of our own. The results were really shocking and have the capacity to scar you forever.

Once again reader's discretion is advised before you proceed.
