Elaine Davidson: World’s Most Pierced Woman

Elaine Davidson didn’t need the new piercings for record purposes–she got into the Guinness Book of World Records back in the year 2000 with the comparatively miniscule 462 piercings. At the time, just under 200 of those were in her face.

As for her current 6,005 piercings, Davidson tells the Telegraph more than 1,500 of them are “internal.” (We are thankful she did not elaborate on that.)

Davidson works as a nurse in Edinburgh. She also recently opened a piercing studio in Darlington, Durham.
