Check out this picture of a rather brave beekeeper, who decided to cover himself in a huge 326,000 bees!

Gao Bingguo suffered a massive 2,000 stings during the process, which took place in Tan'an, China's Shandong Province.

He even gave himself a thorough wash before beginning to remove all human smells. This reduces the number of stings – so we dread to imagine how many he'd endure without this prep!

The 54-year-old attached 60 queen bees' boxes to his body in order to attract the worker bees, while helpers placed boxes of them around Gao's feet.

It took a whole 2 and a half hours until Gao's body was immersed in buzzing insects – which weighed a hefty 32.6kg!

After all bees were removed, the daring chap bathed in a pot of hot water to ease the sting pains – ouch!
