Authorities at Dubai International Airport put a German national, named as Rolf Buchholz, back on a flight to where he had come from, preventing him from entering the country.
According to a report in Emarat Al Youm, Rolf was sent back to Turkey.
Sources quoted in the report said the man was covered in piercings, holes in his faces and also had two ‘horns’ protruding from his forehead.
People at Dubai International Airport were horrified by his appearance, the report stated.
The man was reportedly coming to Dubai to make an appearance at a night club show which was to have strangest people in the world on display.
Rolf was attending as the person with the most number of holes in the face, ears and other parts of the body – a total of 453.
According to media reports, Rolf is a computer programmer who has had extensive plastic surgery to get this look.
Social media was rife speculation linking Rolf to black magic and Satanists.
Rolf was recognised by the Guinness Book of Records in 2012 as the world's most pierced man.
