World Record Piercing?

I could be wrong, but I’d say this piercing has a very good chance of being the oldest person ever pierced. This is by Little Ted in Milton Keynes, England who writes,

“Last year I re-pierced this lady’s ear lobes. You might say that piercing ear lobes is nothing special, and I would normally agree, but this lady had her original piercings done eighty years ago when she was nineteen and she wanted to wear some special earrings at her 100th birthday party. I am hoping to have performed ear lobe piercing with a standard blade on the oldest person that you have had on your site.”

I am nearly 100% sure that not only did Ted work on the oldest piercee on BME, but perhaps in the world? Anyone else reading this ever pierce anyone that’s in the century club?

    I love this! My great aunt who I was close to recently passed away; she almost made it to 100, she was 96! I hope this lovely lady has many more good years.

    I wonder what made her go to a proper piercer as opposed to a mall piercer?:)
