body piercing book review

Stellar Review on Barnes & Noble

I saw this new review of The Piercing Bible on the Barnes & Noble website:

Most Complete Piercing Book on the Planet

Reader Rating See Detailed Ratings

Posted September 15, 2009 I am trying to become a body piercer. It is a notoriously difficult industry to integrate into. This book not only gives you a deep insight into the industry but also the standards required. It covers everything from the piercing rules, through to the equipment and different jewellery types, also different ways of aftercare and advice on what to do if something does go wrong with your piercing! Elayne also shares some personal stories from her vast experience of the body piercing world. Some are rather amusing, some not so but it makes for a very interesting read! The author also gives both Pro's and Con's to each piercing or jewellery choice, which is thorough, informative and very well researched. This book is a must for anybody interested in being a piercer or getting a number of piercings!

"Very Informative"

This is another great review, but I'd like to ask the reviewer where he thought The Piercing Bible fell short, since he gave me only 4 stars. I know that's not a "bad" review, and what he had to say was positive. My other reviews have overwhelmingly received 5 stars (17 of them) and only two of them were 4-star reviews, including this one. I'd certainly appreciate any feedback on how the book could be improved when I update it in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Thorough
By Paige (California) 
I love how this book includes information about tons of piercings, aftercare, piercing troubleshooting, and social issues/aspects of body piercings [plus more!]. Angel definitely hit all of the high points and hit them thoroughly. I've never seen a collection of such valuable information on body piercing in one place. If you're into body modification, this is a must-buy!

The Latest 5-Star review

5.0 out of 5 stars NoThInG CoMpArEs!!!, May 26, 2009 By M. Garabedian (Duarte, CA and Mesa, AZ USA) This is the most well put together collection of one persons knowledge and talent, I've ever seen. She hits on every point (no pun intended) you could think of to ask/know about. This is a must buy for anyone and I mean anyone looking into personal body mods or even for the person wanting to learn to appreciate the art of Piercing. Again MUST BUY!!!
