Pronunciation: sting-ma-ta

Sentence: Because of infected stingmata on the hands of their guitarist, Lee Shun, the metal band "The Oweeze" cancelled part of their tour until the sores healed. Due to the unusual location of the wounds, metalheads throughout the country have begun to believe that Shun is a mystic and thousands of fans, all bearing tatoos resembling his stingmata have camped outside of his house. The band's manager, Rip Entaire, explained that Lee was wounded in a fistfight with a violent fan; however, the drummer, Cut Andrun, revealed the shocking truth in a Rolling Stone article that he tripped while trying to photograph butterflies.

Etymology: sting: burning or sharp pain + stigmata: wounds or lesions that resemble the marks of crucifixioin + stigma: mark of disgrace
