Another world record?

On the fourth of March, 2006, Charlie Wilson of Sunderland Body Art did 1015 captive bead ring piercings on Kam Ma (pictured). It took seven hours and fifty-five minutes, and to the best of my knowledge is the current world record for the most number of piercings done at once with jewelry inserted. Visit their website for more photos and details, and I’ll try and get more coverage up soon.

    At least he put some kind of pattern/organization into the placement of the piercings… That way, if/when he scars, it’ll be asthetically pleasing, not just a bunch of pock marks.

    The wierd thing about this is, it was featured in a newspaper that is given out on the buses here in England, and that was it. I hearsd a few childish girls commenting with the usual, but i thought it was quite nice that nobody minded, and some even felt proud of this man, ig you know what I mean. Good for him, I say, maybe for us all.

    Due to a bit of local rivalry, Charlie doesn’t mention where the previous record was done or who did half the work…interesting.

    The weight of the rings must feel quite interesting. It looks good (:

    i assume the bus newspaper you’re talking about is the metro? i love that newspaper lol

    it was funny looking at all the commuters on the tube’s faces when they turned to that page.

    I think it was also in the Mirror or some other similar pantheon of journalistic integrity but yeah – t’Metro had it. The Metro is awesome but in the last few years it’s turned from a completely unbiased edatorial stance to a sensationalist rag.

    Still better than most priced papers though.

    I’ve been pierced by Charlie ^_^ I think the weight of the rings would be an interesting experience. Much like chain mail perhaps?
