Most Pierced Woman: How Many Do You Have?

most pierced woman

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.

See what CafeMoms think about lip piercings in the Questions: Just For Fun section. What do you think of the woman with the world's most piercings? For more fun, I wonder how many do you have?

I currently have only tongue. I have SIX I plan to have redone because I hate that I had to take them out [for various reasons]. Getting pierced, for me, is like good sex. hehe.

If she likes it, who am I to judge.. It takes alot from a person to step out of the norm to do something like that. Personally, I only have my ears peirced & for a few days i had my eyebrow peirced-until my mom forced me to take it out.. lol.I do think some people who have their ears peirced multiple times look good, but Im not into jewelry. And only wear earring about 6 times a year, maybe...

One in each ear. I have a feeling that this Davidson woman is totally nuts. She will ,no doubt,have some serious health problems from all her piercings. In my opinion, ear piercing is the only safe thing to do. Any others and you are risking disease and infection. And it looks tacky,IMO, to pierce anything else.
