Wow. This guy has a lot of hardware going on. He looks like a TSA agent’s worst nightmare. It would probably be a good idea to not get in line behind him at airport security.  Think you can identify all of his piercings and body modifications by name? Help us out.

Piercings and Airport Security

In case you are curious, here are some commonly asked question related to piercings and airport security:

Do piercings go off in airport security?

Yes. Even small ones can set off the security scanners at the airport.


Can TSA security see my genital piercings on their scanner?

Yes. In general, genital piercings and airport security are a very bad idea. Your genital piercings will probably trigger alarms and draw extra attention to your body. They will also probably delay you at the airport and result in extra body searches.

Do you have to remove jewelry when going through airport security? And can you wear jewelry through security at the airport?

Wearing lots of jewelry or piercings before boarding a flight is a bad idea. It will only delay both yourself and other people in the security line behind you. It’s better to just take off your piercings and jewelry before going to the airport and put it in your carry-on luggage. Put your metal jewelry back on after your flight.

Can Titanium set off metal detectors?

Maybe. The metal rod or screws in your body from surgery probably won’t set off a metal detector, but they can. They will also show up on a TSA body scan.

What kind of metal sets off airport metal detectors?

All kinds of metals can set off an airport metal detector. Different airports will have different types of metal detectors and each type of metal detector works differently. However, newer airport detectors can usually identify and tell the difference between medical metal implants and suspicious metal items.

Will underwire bra set off airport security?

Yes. It’s a good idea to wear a sports bra or a plastic underwire bra when traveling. Especially when traveling through high security areas like parts of Europe. Women who wear metal underwire bras are frequently subjected to pat downs.
