Body Piercing World Record

Oddities

Brent Moffatt (34) from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada set the world record for most body piercings on January 15, 2003 when he pushed 702 needles through his skin in just under eight hours. He had hoped to reach 1,000, but had to stop when the pain became too much. The 18-gage needles were in for more than five minutes before he began extracting them.

The previous record holder had 200 piercings.

Moffatt is a piercer at the Metamorphosis tattoo studio in Winnipeg.
