Benidorm Tattoo Convention 2017

Double trouble Guinness World Record breaking duo head to Spain for the first Benidorm Tattoo Convention.

 

Johnny Strange, “the man with ears of steel” and Elaine Davidson, “The most pierced woman in history”, flew out to sunny Spain to show off their Guinness World Record breaking piercings. Johnny Strange is known for lifting heavy weights and pulling vehicles with his ear piercings while Eline Davidson is known for being the most pierced woman in the world. Incase you are wondering, Elaine currently has over 11,000 piercings covering her face, arms, legs, chest and back and is the undisputed Guinness World Record holder for the “most pierced woman”.

 

A great weekend was had by all, with people enjoying everything from live bands to body painters, burlesque performers to fashion shows.

Budapest Tattoo Convention 2017

Last month Johnny Strange returned to Hungary to perform at the 2017 International Budapest Tattoo Convention.

 

Once again, returning for the 4th time in as many years, Johnny Strange entertained audiences with death defying acts – even enlisting the help of an audience member to pull a swallowed sword out of his throat.

 

The audience member who joined him on stage, coincidentally happened to have a tattoo of a sword swallower on her left shoulder!

International Sword Swallowers Day 2017

It’s International Sword Swallowers Day; yes, believe it or not we actually have a day dedicated to it!

 

Once again, every year like clockwork, sword swallowers around the world flock to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museums to demonstrate the ancient art of sword swallowing.

 

This daring feat has been around for hundreds of years, being mentioned as far back as 410AD, however as it is so dangerous there are currently less than 60 active sword swallowers alive in the world today, making it a very rare art form.

 

Johnny Strange spent the afternoon speaking with James Whale live on BBC Radio Kent about this amazing feat and what exactly International Sword Swallowers Day is all about.
