Rolf Buchholz now has an astonishing 516 modifications, and even plans to add more

A man with more than 500 body modifications is among a raft of new weird and wonderful 2019 Guinness World Recordholders.

He is among the weird and wonderful recordbreakers to feature in the latest Guinness Book of World Records, which is published today.

The 59-year-old, from Dortmund in Germany, said he “started with tattoos and piercings", and added: "I liked it and I did more and more.”

And he continued: “It is so great to be in the book. It is something special. I am very proud to be in the book.”

And he earned a place in the records by completing 14 backflips in just 60 seconds.

A statement from Guinness World Records said: "Ryan Luney first learned how to fire breathe after being approached to perform in a show in Belfast.

"The show had trained fire breathers who taught Luney the basics of the skill. Luney then bough the necessary materials and regularly practiced his skills.

"Soon after, Luney was searching for his next world record attempt.

"He decided on doing the most fire breathing backflips in one minute after seeing someone do a single fire breathing backflip on TV.

"He figured this record would combine his two talents: fire breathing and parkour."
