Holey war: Dubai airport turns away world’s most pierced man

Rolf Buchholz, the world’s most pierced man, has been barred from Dubai, where he was turned away at the airport. Airport officials told 7Days newspaper they refused entry to the 53-year-old German, who sports 453 piercings plus two horns on his forehead, for “security reasons”. The German Guinness World Record holder had been booked to perform at a nightclub in the emirate on Friday night.

At the end I got an answer why I can’t enter Dubai. The immigration thought I am Black Magic.

A spokesman for the nightclub where Buchholz was scheduled to appear, Cirque Le Soir, said its management had failed “despite all its attempts” to win permission for him to enter the emirate. Dubai is considered the most open of the conservative Gulf monarchies.
