Rolf Buchholz

Rolf Buchholz (born 1959) is the world's most pierced man by Guinness World Records, with 453 body piercings throughout his body, many of them on his face and genitals. Rolf Buchholz, a computer expert from Dortmund, Germany, discovered the world of piercing at age 41. He loved the body art so much that he decided to have 453 piercings in various parts of his body, including 25 in his eyebrows, 8 in his nose, and 278 in his genital area. Although Buchholz has more piercings than any other man in the world, he is easily defeated by Elaine Davidson, who is the most pierced woman in the world, sporting some 7,000 piercings all over her body.

In addition to embellishing his face with more than 100 piercings, Buchholz also received two faux horns implants on his forehead. Bucholz also has a passion for tattoos, sporting a full body suit that covers his entire torso and limbs.

On August 17, 2014, Buchholz was refused entry to Dubai over black magic concerns, forcing him to skip a planned appearance at a Cirque le Soir nightclub.
