Most Pierced Woman: How Many Do You Have?

Elaine Davidson from her website.

It's official. Elaine Davidson of Edinburgh, Scotland is the most pierced woman in the world.

She has 6,005 piercings, and she says 1,500 of her piercings are internal. Internal piercings? Like in her frontal lobe?


This woman first got into the Guiness Book of World Records in 2000 when she had 462 piercings. Rock on, right?

Elaine Davidson has been quoted as saying, "I wanted to break the record. My family [doesn't] even like tattoos or piercings. But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me."

Experts say excessive piercing can be dangerous. Areas around the piercings can become infected. And Elaine Davidson would be at high risk for blood-borne diseases such as hepatitis and HIV, according to FoxNews.

I worked at a funky jewelry shop in college where I pierced body parts. It was kind of cool. But I think I would've used good judgment and turned this woman away. At that time, before I had children to rip piercings out of my body parts, I had six holes in my ears. Now I only have two, that is, if they haven't grown back in.
