Is it a sin for a person who whips himself for religious belief or for penance?

This has become traditional practice only in our province every Holy week,
They even let themselves be crucified on Good Friday.
while the other faithful celebrate the Holy Week , singing the passion of Christ
without ceasing from Holy Monday to Good Friday.
The church try to stop this tradition but to no avail. It was handed from generation to generation.

I ask one the crucified penitent, why do they do it.

He said " So that the World would remember that there is a Lord who was
crucified because of our sin."
