Just Not For Me!

I don’t even know what to say!

The world’s most pierced woman, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, has added to her collection with a 6,005th piercing, the U.K.’s Telegraph reported.

Elaine Davidson, of Edinburgh, Scotland, made the Guinness World Record official in 2000 when she had a mere 462 piercings—192 of which were in her face. Nine years later, the Brazilian-born nurse has thousands of piercings including more than 1,500 that she says are “internal.” (I don’t want to ask or know any more than that!)

Surprisingly, Davidson says she doesn’t like getting pierced. “To break the record you have to get to a high level. I wanted to break the record. My family [doesn’t] even like tattoos or piercings. But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me.”

What do I say? Where do I begin?

How about with what my Dad used to say to me when I came up with some stupid idea: “ARE YOU CRAZY!”

Ms. Davidson, are you crazy!

I have to tell you, if I were in the hospital and you walked in to treat me, I don’t think I could let you. I’d be just too afraid. Call me a wimp you would like! Either that, or all I could do would be to stare, and I know that's not polite!


  1. I have only one word to say: "ouch!" Or maybe "Ewwwwwww". I will agree with you Steve that if I was in the hospital and this was my nurse, she would not be my nurse very long. I would bet someone put a curse on me who was into voodoo. No way. Nada. Not a snowball's chance in you know where would she be my nurse.

  2. Bill...maybe you and I are too narrow-minded...we need to expand our horizon...see the bigger picture...and be more open and accepting...

    Then again, maybe we are just honest! And smart!

  3. I wonder what airport security is like.

  4. Michael, I can answer your question! That person is always in front of me in the security line! They generally get put through, then I am strip-searched!

  5. Can you imagine what it would be like for her to try to wipe her nose? Who'd want to kiss her? How could she get close to anyone??? Yuck!

  6. Um. Ouch! Wonder what she'd do if she had to have surgery. Couldn't imagine taking them all out for an x-ray. LOL!

    Hiatus from my blog is much needed. I will be back, but I don't know when. My brain needs to refocus and other stuff. Thanks for the encouragement. I'll still be around online (mostly e-mail and Facebook). So smile. :)

  7. imagine sleeping!

    i just really don't understand why people want to do that. guess i'm just narrow-minded or something, but it just looks painful, and impractical.

  8. The woman is a freak show....and there's really no other way to describe it.

  9. Hmm, which is worse - finding an available location for another piercing, continuously trying to prevent infection, or being that Guiness Book employee assigned to count them all?

    I guess MRI's are out for her! And sneezing - no sneezing with all that hardware. Ouch.

  10. Okay Willl...just so you know...your comment freaked me out on so many levels!
