Best of the Guestbook
February 5th, 2010
The design for my website www.piercingbible.com is just about to be updated, and that's surely for the best. But, one slightly sad (but unavoidable) thing that is that my old Guestbook will be no more, and the posts will be unavailable. Some related good news is that all of my previous blog posts will still be available in the archives on the updated site. So, I've decided to make a blog post "Best of the Guestbook" to preserve some of the entries. Here we go!
Lauren, Chicago, IL; Jan. 9, 2010 I got my tongue pierced on a whim and then started looking up other piercings. Before I knew it I had fallen in-love with the idea of having piercings anywhere below the neck that I could get them. I then ordered The Piercing Bible and now am going to set up an appointment with my local APP piercer for my nipples and VCH. I may eventually take my tongue piercing out, but thanks to this book I will definitely still be getting piercings. Thank you so much for the information that you provide in your book. _______________________________ Shicara, in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada; Jan. 6, 2010 Hello, I love the book, I am only half way through reading it, but it is fantastic, and I am learning an incredible amount! It surely made me realize how many genital piercings you could get! O.O _______________________________ Kinya, Buffalo, NY; Nov. 11, 2009I just received your book. I inititally ordered it to assist me with the writings of my expository essay on Body Piercing's, but since I opened the book; I have yet to put it down. Thank You for allowing us to share in your creative world._______________________________Janet Lutz, Huntington Beach, CA; Sept. 5, 2009
Hi Elayne, I love your book and I would love to have my book autographed by you in November when you are in Long Beach? I am also thinking about a new piercing!! Take care Janet xo_______________________________Christine DeCoteaum, Tallahassee, FL; Aug. 30, 2009 Elayne, I have to say that the purchase of your book has been The Authoritative reference books on piercing and body piercing hands down. I'm an avid cyclist and very much involved in the local community in health and nutrition. So, when I went looking for a qualified piercer several years ago for my second piercing *my ears being done by a store in Jacksonville and I almost fainted then (ha.) I have to say after many years in college and after completion of my studies I decided to after much personal counseling for so many other issues in my life, I found Bink Williams and his studio. It was then that I had my 1'st and only belly piercing (so far). It was almost four years since then that I decided on my 40th bday celebration and after numerous celebration century rides completed and triathlons also attempted and completed and being in the best shape of my life that I decided to pursue *not a mid life crisis sacrifice but more so a tribute to so many things in my life overcome. I'm so thankful I was able to find Bink and his studio still available to our Tallahassee area and that He and his dedicated staff were still practicing the safest and sterile piercing studio in the N. Florida and possibly surrounding areas. I've not even entertained venturing to another studio from my very powerful and professional experiences there. I was actually introduced to your book after a Tongue piercing I decided to get this year. Afterwards I was so very pleased with my experience(s) again, I decided to invest in your what I consider an invaluable addition to a serious piercers library and valuable source of sound information and advice from an amazing Author. I purchased this book the next week, then went back and bought another one for a friend whom also had his tongue pierced. I can say I did post a feedback on Bink site about how anyone seriously interested in knowing all about piercing and whats involved and some really deep meaningful reason people decide to enhance their lifestyle(s) with such an amazing art form. It would be a truly wonderful treat if you were ever in the Tallahassee area one day and to have a book signing or simply enjoying a day in Florida's capital city. I would sincerely desire an autographed copy. It would be a true honor to meet you at some point in your journeys or travels. I simply wanted to say thank you as I have now been able to enjoy a few more piercings done in the past month which include both nipple piercings , VCH, all done by Bink himself, and the latest this weekend the one I've been *begging for - seriously... ! I finally was granted my sternum anchor piercing by Both Bink and his Apprentice Marina. Both so very gentle and professional. The shop team are all very knowledgeable and genuinely committed to enhancing their skill and becoming better in their professional trade. Bink of course is quite the Master in his field and my appreciation is boundless for the sensitivity and concern for the very best in care and long term enjoyment from their work. Thank you Elayne for working so hard in preparing such invaluable information for beginners and those looking for more in themselves and an understanding in an art form worthy of lasting understanding and appreciation._______________________________Jordan Brill + Crista Grove, Upstate NY; June 2, 2009I, Jordan, am a body piercing apprentice in Canandaigua, New York and LOVE LOVE LOVE your book!

Love,Jordan and Crista_______________________________Dagon, Vancouver, BC, Canada; May 20, 2009Excellent. I've been wanting a well rounded, comprehensive book to refer to when people ask questions about piercing. Also, I just love to read about piercing and modification to gain as much knowledge as I can._______________________________Courtney Sisler, St. Louis, MO; May 19, 2009 I'm so excited to see a book like this being published. I was really impressed by how neutral it remained without leaving things out. Its really hard to write on this subject because so much of piercing is personal preference, but you did a fantastic job! xo- Cj_______________________________Wendi and Rick, Central Coast of CA; Apr. 30, 2009The book look's fantastic (love the cover) add expert advice from THE BEST...WOW.......Sending love to both of you.

She is an inspiration to me, although she may not know this. She is Original and Unique and always has been. After seeing Elayne at our 20th High School Reunion, her presence impacted my life. I am now free and living how I should have been. I have no piercings or tattoos, because I'm waiting for the honor of having Elayne work her majic on me._______________________________Adele, Terre Haute, IN; Sept. 12, 2008You are awesome!

All my experiences with her have been special and professional. She first pierced me at the Gauntlet. i realized then, she would be the only one that would work with for any future body mods. A true icon and a beautiful person. Can't wait for the book to be published. Thanks for everything.
