EDINBURGH, Scotland, June 9 (UPI) -- A Scottish world record holder with nearly 7,000 piercings, including 192 on her face, has married a man with no piercings or tattoos.

Elaine Davidson, 46, married Douglas Watson, who is in his 60s, in a Wednesday ceremony at the central Register Office in Edinburgh, The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.

"Elaine looked astonishing," Watson said after the wedding.

"People see the piercings but I see the amazing personality underneath. We have known each other for a long time ... I am always amazed by the effect her piercings have on people. She's an incredible woman. People think its unconventional but that is the woman she is and people love her for it."

Davidson was first certified as a Guinness World Record holder in 2000, when she had only 462 piercings. That number has since grown to 6,925, she said.
