Abstract Ink piercer Pauly Dunkleberger removed a needle from the arm of Aryan Hopkins Saturday.
After an hour of needle pulling, he only had a few hundred left to do.
Hopkins broke the Guinness World Record for most body piercings in one session at the Roseville tattoo, piercing and body modification studio. Owner, and Aryan’s wife, Ashleigh Hopkins said the final count totaled 1,093 needles, which beat the previous record of 900 piercings with 18-gauge needles.
“It doesn’t exactly hurt,” Hopkins said. “It feels extremely weird.”
