DUBAI – “Modesty" may not be the first word that comes to mind when you think of Dubai.  The Arab metropolis is all about lavish, over-the-top displays, but apparently not when it comes to one's face

Rolf Buchholz was denied entry to the country over the weekend (forcing him to miss a nightclub gig) for “security reasons,” according to the media.

We’re guessing that Buccholz’s 453 piercings to his face, genitals and who knows what else (he’s in the Guinness Book of World Records) had something to do with it.

We just hope it didn't hurt Rolf's feelings too much. It’s hard to tell if he has a thick skin.
