Somewhat ahead of Mr Buccholz is Elaine Davidson who, by 2012, had over 9,000 piercings. Born in Brazil and formerly a nurse, Elaine now resides in Edinburgh. At one stage, she was reported as having more piercings in her genitalia than any other place on her body. Her piercings have increased from 462 in 2000, when she was examined by a Guinness World Record official, right up to a staggering 9,000 plus by 2012.
