I didn't think anyone could possibly add any more piercings to the human body than Brazilian born Elaine Davidson . However, the world's most metal jewelry adorned woman is now up to 6,005 piercings as of February 2009.

That's considerably more than the 462 she had back in 2000 when she was awarded the title by the Guinness Book of Records. Of the 6,005 piercings, more than 1,500 are internal - you'll have to use your imagination to figure out where they might be. All that jewelry weighs an estimated 3 kg or more than 6 lbs!!

Davidson actually doesn't enjoy being pierced but she wanted to break the record. At the rate she is going, nobody is going to catch up any time soon. She says "People often just want to look at me or touch me - some even want to kiss me". She never removes her jewelry and thus sleeps with it all on. Once a nurse, Davidson not surprisingly now owns her own body piercing, tattoo and aromatherapy shop in Edinburgh, Scotland.
