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.
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!
Johnny Strange recently got up close and personal with a chainsaw on Dutch TV show, Wedden Dat Ik Het Kan.
Johnny Strange was invited to perform on SBS6’s TV show Wedden Dat Ik Het Kan, the Dutch version of TV show “Go For It!” (UK) and “Challenge Me!” (USA). Strange teamed up with hosts Sylvie Meis and Jeroen van der Boom to perform a variation of one of his death defying stunts with a chainsaw.
Against the clock he had to chainsaw as many apples out of his mouth in just one minute, this dare devil challenge was featured in the 3rd season of the show.
Last year Johnny Strange took part in a documentary on sword swallowing.
The documentary, filmed by the Russian TV show Hayka 2.0 (which roughly translates into Science 2.0) was filmed at the largest Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! museum in the world, Ripley’s, London. It covered all aspects of sword swallowing including technique, weaponry, and health and safety – with interviews from leading experts in the field, including weapons experts, doctors and of course, Johnny Strange.
The second instalment of Johnny Strange’s appearances on Guinness World Records’ Facebook Live saw him attempting two more records.
Johnny attempted the record for “The most newspapers split using a bullwhip in one minute” and the record for “Most swords swallowed in 3 minutes”.
Johnny achieved two out of two by successfully splitting 16 newspapers with a bullwhip, held by Facebook Live host Paul “Pee Wee” Wiggins, and by swallowing a 21” blade a whopping 16 times in three minutes!
The Facebook Live broadcast had over 190,000 viewers and Johnny answered many questions in the ‘Ask Me Anything’ Q&A session.
