The world's most pierced man, 53-year-old, Rolf Buchholz from Germany, was denied entry into Dubai on Saturday (16 August), ahead of his planned guest appearance at a Dubai nightclub, amidst black magic fears.

Buchholz was all set to make an appearance at the Cirque Le Soir nightclub at the Fairmont Hotel in Dubai, as part of the club's 'Freaks and Beats' night on Friday (15 August).

Jad Lahoud, the Executive Director of Pragma Lifestyle, which operates the club, said in a statement to Gulf News: "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.

"We will always be on the look out for new acts and performers that will bring something new to the nightlife scene, whilst ensuring they are in line with the rules and regulations. It was a shame that Rolf couldn't join us this time."

Soon after being denied entry in Dubai, Buchholz took to Twitter to vent his anger.

Dubai Customs officials gave no official statement, however, Buchholz's critics were quick to justify the actions of the authorities.

Rolf Buchholz is a Guinness World Record holder for the most piercings in the world. He has 453 piercings and an implanted pair of horns on his head.

Besides piercings, Buchholz has a passion for suspensions. He went through his 200th suspension in March 2013.
