With his subdermal horns, inky black eyes and forked tongue, it's hardly surprising Rolf Buchholz is often compared to a devil.
The German holds the title of the world's most modified man, boasting hundreds of bizarre body alterations including an eye-watering 278 piercings on his genitals.
As well as his snake-like split tongue, Rolf also has a split penis. Yes, you read that right.

It's perhaps fortunate that Rolf doesn't expand on the details of that particular procedure. But he insists his genital decorations have had no impact on his sex life.
"It's not a problem at all," he said. "I have had the piercings already so long, if there was a problem, I would have got rid of them already long ago."
Speaking to a local German television station, Rolf once said the piercings give him more trouble at airports than they do in bed.
Rolf was once stopped at the airport in Dubai for a gig at a nightclub after authorities were afraid he practiced "black magic".
"Those who escorted me back to the plane said that it was because of the way I looked and that it was because I am black magic,” he recalled.
The most famous of his modifications, he says, are the subdermal implants in his arms and his head – which look like horns. He has 35 implants in total, including six genital beadings and a flexible rhombus on the back of his hand.
"Does it hurt? That's the question people ask me in every language," he said.
But Rolf insists that they don't hurt and, to prove it, starts tugging the ones on his arms and moving them around.
While rolling his forked tongue over the numerous piercing in his lips, he told Guinness Book of World Records: "A lot of people think I am the devil, but I don't believe in the devil."
He also has magnets implanted in his fingertips which can sometimes interfere with electronic devices like his iPad.
Rolf has now held the record of being the most modified man since 2012.
But his obsession didn't start until he was 40 when he got his first tattoo on his leg.
He now boasts a staggering 516 body alterations.
"I started with the body modifications because I liked them," said the 62-year-old who works for a telephone company.
"They were fun, so I started doing more and more."
"One day, I saw I could break the record because I met other record holders and realised I had more piercings than them," he continued.
"I did it not for the record. I like the modification, I find it good, so I did it.
"No inspiration behind it, it's just to show you can do it and there's no problem with it."
But he said people's reactions to him changed since he got the record-breaking title.
He joins the likes of others like Lucky Diamond Rich, the world's most tattooed man who has over 200% coverage on his body, including his penis and gums.
