German Rolf Buchholz, with horn implants, 453 piercings denied entry to Dubai; Fears he practices "black magic" [ VIDEO's + Pics ] - www.ofINTEREST.net


Rolf Buchholz, 55



A culture has been growing all around the world that finds marking up ones body almost as important as eating and sleeping. Is this sanity, or is it something more?

Whether you support the "Changed" being in this article or look at what he is doing to his body as a perversion and/or satanic in some way, one thing is for sure, it is driven by some sort of need for attention.

Rolf Buchholz, from Dortmund, Germany has a total of 453 studs and rings all over his body, and has recently been acknowledged by Guinness as the most pierced man in the world.

The 52-year-old computer expert discovered the world of piercing on or about 2000, and loved it so much that he has since then had 453 piercings in various parts of his body. Looking at him, you’d probably think most of them are  on his head and face, but you’d be wrong. Rolf has 94 piercings in and around his lips, 25 in his eyebrows, 8 in his nose, and a whopping 278 in his genital area. I don’t need to see it to believe it, but I wonder how he managed to fit that many in such a small area. Apart from his passion for piercings, Bucholz also has a thing for tattoos, and sports a full body suit that covers his entire torso and limbs.

I for one, don't even have a thought to harm my body as such.

Should you be concerned?

German with horn implants, 453 piercings denied entry to Dubai over fears he practices ‘black magic" he says

A heavily tattooed German man whose face is embellished with horn implants and more than 100 piercings said Sunday he was refused entry to Dubai without reason, forcing him to skip a planned appearance at a nightclub.

His look may have been a step too far for the Gulf’s most liberal city, where a carefully cultivated reputation for tolerance and cutting-edge cosmopolitanism occasionally clashes with the region’s conservative Islamic values.

Rolf Buchholz, 55, was travelling to the Middle Eastern commercial hub for the first time last week to appear at a circus-themed venue that woos partygoers with over-the-top attractions such as sword swallowers and burlesque dancers.

He told The Associated Press that immigration agents initially stamped his passport and let him through, but that he was stopped again before he was able to exit customs. He soon found himself in a room with other deportees.

The club said in an emailed statement that airport authorities cited “security reasons” in denying him entry. Buchholz said airport workers told him officials were concerned he could be a practitioner of “black magic,” though authorities did not say so directly.

“I got never an official answer,” he said. “They are friendly but nobody answers your questions.”
In addition to his body art and faux horns, Buchholz has a record 453 piercings, many of them on his face and genitals, according to Guinness World Records.

Airport and immigration officials referred questions to the police, who could not be reached for comment.
Buchholz, an information technology professional from Dortmund, Germany, had been scheduled to appear at the Cirque le Soir nightclub in Dubai’s Fairmont Hotel on Friday.

The club opened in 2011 and promises a little bit of everything: “Stilt walkers, midgets, contortionists, tattooed dancers, jugglers, drummers … magicians and fire eaters,” according to its website.

Alcohol flows freely in Dubai bars and clubs, which are typically attached to hotels, and revelers dress just as chicly and skimpily as they would in the West.

But while Dubai is far more laid-back than nearby Saudi Arabia or Qatar, traditional Islamic values remain strong, particularly among members of the local population who are far outnumbered by foreign residents.
Actions deemed insulting to local values, including public displays of affection, public intoxication and disrespect for religion, can lead to fines and jail time.

Jad Lahoud, the executive director of Pragma Lifestyle, the company that runs the Dubai branch of the club, said it was “a shame that Rolf couldn’t join us this time.”

Cirque le Soir Dubai always strives to bring unique entertainment and concepts to the UAE, however we will always act in line with the laws that govern this nation,” he added in an emailed statement.

Buchholz tweeted shortly after he was ordered to leave that he would never come back to Dubai.

But by Sunday, he seemed to be reconsidering. He said he would be happy to return if he had government assurance he’d be let in — though he conceded that might yet be a long shot.

“I have two horns. I think that was also a problem for me in Dubai,” he said.

A Dubai nightclub that hoped to feature Buchholz, who holds the world record for having the most piercings, said in an emailed statement Sunday, Aug. 17, 2014, that he was refused entry to the Gulf city because of security concerns. The German man now has 453 piercings, including many in his face and genitals, according to Guinness World Records.  Markus Schreiber/AP
