Officially titled “Most Pierced Woman”, Elaine Davidson of Scotland holds the Guinness World Record for most permanent piercings. She first set the record in 2000 with 462 body piercings. In 2006 her Guinness-certified peircings jumped to a whopping 4,225! Whoa!
According to wickipedia, body piercing dates back to ancient times. Body piercing in Western Culture became more mainstream in the 1990’s driven in part by the 1993 Aerosmith Video of “Cryin” in which actress Alicia Silverstone depicted a navel piercing.
Piercings also jumped in popularity with the Janet Jackson 2004 Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction”.
