Body Mod Wow! – Most Pierced, Tattooed, and Modified People in the World

As body modifications continue to rise and the amount of tattoos and piercings on a single person continues to grow, I had to ask, “who’s got the most?”  And here are the answers!


Most Pierced Person in the World

The Most pierced Person in the World

The world’s most pierced person is Brazilian born former nurse and current citizen of the UK, Elaine Davidson.  Elaine began in the mid nineties with a modest collection of 250 piercings.  By 2000 she had won her first world record with 462, reaching the 1000 mark in 2003, and continuing on at an amazing pace.  Her last reported numbers from Summer of last year were absolutely staggering: over 6,700!  You go, girl!

Most Piercings in a Single Sitting

Man With the Most Piercings Done at Once

This record goes to brit Kam Ma, for his amazing 7 hour and 55 minute piercing session in which he was pierced an unbelievable 1,015 times.  He’s also been given the honorary title of Man With the World’s Strongest Pain Threshold, as during his nearly 8 hour record breaking session no anesthetic of any kind was used.


Most Tattooed Woman

The most tattooed woman in the world is Julia Gnuse, with a whopping ninety five percent of her body covered in brilliant tattoo art.  The inclusion of such bright coloring, cartoons, and many celebrity caricatures in her tattoos has earned Julia the nickname “The Illustrated Lady.”


Most Tattooed Man

Guinness Record Holder for Most Tattoos

The current Guinness record holder for most tattooed man had so much competition that he needed to do something amazing: cover literally one hundred percent of his body in tattoos.  New Zealand native Lucky Diamond Rich did just that, tattooing his entire body head to toe including his eyelids, lips, inner ears, and some other places that are extremely sensitive.

Lucky’s close runners up, some of them former title holders themselves, included Kentucky born Eric Sprague (a.k.a. the Lizard Man), Canadian model (and “Zombie Boy”) Rick “Rico” Genest who recently became the most tattooed man ever to grace the catwalk, Paul Lawrence (also called “The Enigma”) for his interesting full body jigsaw puzzle, and former record holder Tom Leppard or “the Leopard Man.”
