The Guinness World Record holder for the 'Most Pierced Man' is Rolf Bucholz. He has a total of 453 piercings with 127 piercings on his and 278 piercings in his genital area.
Buchholz is an information technology professional from Dortmund, Germany. He frequently attends various events and clubs.
Well, in August 15, 2014, Bucholz was denied access into Dubai, where he missed his club appearance at Cirque le Soir nightclub . He was supposed to appear at a circus-themed venue that entertains partygoers with over-the-top attractions such as sword swallowers and burlesque dancers.
Bucholz told The Associated Press that immigration agents initially stamped his passport and let him through, but that he was stopped before he was able to exit customs and was in a room with other deportees. He was never given a real reason, but assumes that his horns and piercings were too much for Dubai's conservative Islamic values.
The Food and Drug Administration is warning tattoo parlors, their customers and those that purhase at-home tattoo kits that not all tattoo ink is safe.
Last month, California company White and Blue Lion Inc. recalled inks in in-home tattoo kits after testing confirmed bacterial contamination in unopened bottles.
At least one skin infection has been linked to the company's products, and FDA officials say they are aware of other reports of infections linked to tattoo inks with similar packaging.
People getting tattoos can get infections in the skin even in the cleanest conditions. The ink can carry bacteria that can spread through the bloodstream - sepsis. Symptoms may include fever, shaking chills and sweats, and the risk is particularly high for anyone with pre-existing heart or circulatory conditions. Less severe infections may involve bumps on the skin, discharge, redness, swelling, blisters or excessive pain at the site.
The FDA says it has received reports of bad reactions to tattoo inks years later, as well as right after tattooing. So, don't think you're out of the woods just because it's been a few weeks. Keep a close eye for any changes.
The FDA says it is concerned that consumers and tattoo artists may have some of the contaminated products from the July recall. White and Blue Lion may have just been one distributor.
Some of the recalled bottles are labeled with a multicolored Chinese dragon image and black-and-white lettering, while some are missing manufacturer information. In general, the FDA says those looking to get tattoos should always ensure that the ink has a brand name and a location of the business that manufactured it.
William Clyde Gibson's head tattoo was made public on Wednesday. The tattoo is quite controversial because he got the tattoo while under police custody. The tattoo was not on Gibson's head when he arrived on death row, but when he was released to DOC, the tattoo was on his head.
Gibson was supposed to be segregated for 23 hours a day, so how did he get an elaborate tattoo that covers most of his head.
The tattoo reads "Death Row X3," which is a reference to his convictions in three murders; however, Gibson can only be sentenced to death twice.
He was given the death penalty for killing his mother's best friend, 75-year-old Christine Whitis, in 2012. He made a plea deal for the 2002 murder of Karen Hodella, receiving a 65-year prison sentence. Gibson plead guilty to Stephanie Kirk's 2012 murder, and could be sentenced to death for her murder.
Tattooing a new nipple and areola is a well-known step in breast-reconstruction surgery on women who have had cancer. But, plastic surgeons who usually create their own tattoos can learn from professional tattoo artists when it comes to making the tattoo appear more realistic.
"Traditionally, most nipple-areola tattoos have been created using lighter ink for the areola and a central circle of darker ink for the nipple," said Dr. Eric G. Halvorson, a plastic surgeon at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston
The septum piercing is placed in the cartilage area between the nose. Because the nose is relatively dirty, you want to keep it clean with a new septum piercing. Otherwise, bacteria can easily infect a new piercing.
It takes about about 1-3 months to heal a septum piercing

The vampire subculture isn't a new fad, not is it going to end any time soon. But a full gothic style is not as prevalent as it once was
