Ouch, ouch, ouch: Vegas performer has 3,200 piercings in SINGLE sitting in world record bid

The tears in her eyes and the grimace on her face show it hurts.
Not once, not twice but 3,200 times.
For this was not the finishing touches of a tattoo for Las Vegas performer Staysha Randall but a bid to break the record for the most body piercings in a single sitting.
That's got to sting: Staysha Randall, 22, grimaces in pain as another needle pierces her body in Inktoxicated Tattoos, Las Vegas
Something to shout about: One of the assistants raises her arms after Ms Randall passes the previous record of 3,100 piercings in the same sitting
Rather you than me: The strong woman, who performs in shows across Las Vegas, managed 3,200 needle piercings before calling it a day
Staysha, 22, who performs in shows across the strip, was attempting to have 3,600 piercings in her back, arms and legs but decided enough was enough after 3,200 had been put in at Inktoxicated Tattoos in the Nevada city.
Helping in her bid was body piercer Bill 'Danger' Robinson and his piercing assistant 'Jenn O Cide'. The record attempt is still awaiting confirmation by the Guinness Book of Records before it becomes official.
Ms Randall, who perhaps unsurprisingly lists Nine Inch Nails among her favourite bands, also includes escape acts and burlesque into her shows where she performs feats demonstrating her physical strength.
The previous record for the most body piercings in one sitting was 3,100.
We get the point: Bill 'Danger' Robinson adds another needle to Ms Randall's back during the record attempt
Eye-watering: The Vegas performer can't prevent a few tears during her mammoth stunt
Job done: The tattoo parlour erupts in celebration as Ms Randall finally says she has had enough
Now don't go through any metal detectors: The performer poses outside the tattoo parlour as piercing assistant 'Jenn O Cide' looks on
That's enough: Ms Randall shows the 400 marks inked on her skin where she would have had further needles put in if she had continued with her goal of 3,600 piercings
