SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - The Brazilian woman with the most body piercings in the world -- 1,903 -- fears returning to her crime-ridden home country as she would attract so much attention she could be robbed.

"The last time I went to Brazil, I had to wear a face mask because since I have a lot of jewellery (pierced to the skin), I fear being robbed or attacked," Elaine Davidson told Reuters from Edinburgh in Britain where she lives.

Brazil has one of the highest crime rates in the world.

Davidson, who has been outside her home country for 10 years, won an entry in this year`s Guinness World Records book after starting to pierce herself four years ago. In Edinburgh she runs a Brazilian restaurant.

She considers feeling pain a motivating factor in her life and says she also walks on beds of nails, fire and bits of glass.

"I like pain, I love pain," she said, explaining that she now wants to surpass exceed 2,000 body piercings.

Her genitalia is the body part where she has the largest number of piercings -- 500 in all, externally and internally.

"It hurts in the chest as well," she said. "I had to take some out because of the silicone, the doctor asked."
