The world’s most pierced woman is not done collecting her little facial ornaments just yet.

Elaine Davidson, 56, lives in Edinburgh, and she currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most body piercings on a woman - at a whopping 11,003!

In 1997, she had her first skin piercing and by January 2019 she had 11,003, with nearly every part of her body pierced - including her chin, breasts, hands, forehead, and pubic area.

What's more, Davidson is planning to get more piercings in order to hold on to her long-standing record, the Daily Star reports.

In May 2000, the Brazilian-born former nurse first broke the record for most piercings when a Guinness World Records official examined her and found 462 piercings on her body, including 192 on her face.

Davidson has said she styles herself by matching her piercings with bright make-up and hair feathers, and she often replaces and adds to her face jewelry.

Davidson has never removed the studs, which she predicts to weigh around seven pounds. She assured people that the body piercing is not uncomfortable or painful and that she sleeps normally with all of her jewelry in place.

Despite her body image, in 2009, the former nurse revealed that she doesn’t enjoy getting pierced and she only does it so that she can retain her Guinness world title.

According to Edinburgh Live, the world's most pierced woman recently claimed that her license was refused for Edinburgh's Festival Fringe this August.

Despite being a past performer at the world-famous art festival for over 20 years, Davidson said that the organizers rejected her license for the first two weeks of the event.

She said that she is gutted to miss out on the first few weeks of the festival and is worried about losing money after facing years of financial hardships due to being an artist in the pandemic.

Davidson is also known for sleeping on a bed of nails, walking on fire, and laying on broken glass, and holds a black belt in Judo which she earned while in Japan.
