Certain people have a fascination with the idea of making extreme body modifications. They are also willing to shell out tens of thousands of dollars, if not even more, in order to radically modify their outward appearance.
German man Rolf Buchholz had the urge to change his physical look about the time he turned 40. Currently, the 62-year-old Rolf holds two world records. He has the highest body modifications and piercings, according to verifications from 2012 and 2010.
Rolf has the world’s most extreme body modifications and piercings.
Rolf has a total of 516 bodily alterations, which include a large number of implants and 481 piercings. He currently has 278 piercings in his genital area. However, during the course of the years, there has been an increase in the total number of modifications.
Rolf has had a number of physical transformations, including the following:
- A number of piercings on his ears, eyebrows, and lips.
- Spit tongue
- Eyes covered with black tattoos.
- Arms and chest with subdermal implants.
- Fingers with magnetic subdermal implants.
- Subdermal forehead horns implants.
- Inked on 90% of the body.
Rolf began getting tattoos and piercings when he was forty years old.
Rolf has a background in computer science and he works for a telecommunications company in Germany. At the end of the year 1999, he ventured into the realm of body modifications for the very first time by getting his first tattoo as well as his first piercing. Rolf was forty years old at the time, which is more than twenty years ago.
In his own words, it was all due to his love of body modifications. He found them to be so enjoyable that he began performing them more often.
In a split second, he realized that he was capable of breaking the record. That’s when he met some other individuals with records and found that he had more piercings than everyone else.
The changes that Rolf made are certainly noticeable. However, it’s the less apparent ones that pique the curiosity of the public.
He knew that he could beat the record.
Recently, he has been flaunting a few pictures that were taken of him before he started his trip into the realm of body modifications.
One of the photos shows Rolf rising from the sea. His body seems to be completely unpierced by an earring at that time.
He’s not ashamed to acknowledge that his look has alarmed a lot of people.
Another photo shows him during a horse show. He has on a large pair of glasses and a light blue shirt that is tucked into his pants.
Rolf was unrecognizable before his tattoos.
Two horns have been surgically placed on his forehead.
He says that he is not the devil, despite the fact that many people think that he is the devil. He remarked this in an interview before adding that he decided to undergo it due to his love of body modifications.
In addition, he said on the official Guinness World Records channel on YouTube that he is proud of the accomplishments that have led to him being awarded these records.
Since he appeared in the book, people have a new perspective on his physical changes, which he describes as “something special.”
Rolf used to look like this.
According to him, the only disadvantage was the trouble he experienced passing past airport security checks. His piercings consistently trigger the alarms on the metal detectors, which results in his being stopped by the security guards.
During one of his journeys to Dubai, Rolf claimed that he was denied entry to the United Arab Emirates because of his appearance.
He claims that the people who brought him back to the plane said the reason they did so was that he seemed to be involved in some kind of black magic due to his look.
