My First Amazon.co.uk Review!

It looks like The Piercing Bible is as big a hit in among readers the UK as it is in the US: 3 May 2009
5.0 out of 5 stars
Quite simply the best £15 I've spent on anything piercing related
By Mr. H. Watson (Edinburgh Scotland)
This is a book the piercing world has needed for many years helping to dispel myths and educate you whether you are the piercee, the parent or teacher of pierced students a Dr or Pro Piercer there si something in this book for everyone ~Quite simply this book is the best £15 I've spent on anything piercing related in the 9 years and 9 piercings I've got since I started getting pierced.

Great at Parties!

I received this message on Facebook:
"I had my copy of The Piercing Bible out at a party tonight (it's a great coffee table book) and got a lot of interest in it.  I'm almost finished reading it and surprised at how interesting it is (even for someone like me who has no piercings and intends none...)."
I have to admit, I never thought of it as a coffee table book! And, I wasn't certain whether anyone who truly had no personal attraction to piercings would find it interesting. Good stuff!

Apprentice Interrupted

Today I got an interesting email from an aspiring piercer:
My name is Jordan and I was an apprentice up until a few days ago. I got your book and started reading "How To Choose A Piercer" and the piercing and aftercare techniques and realized that the person that I was learning from was not a skilled piercer. He was recommending baby shampoo as his sole aftercare product! I looked up the ingredients and among fragrances and surfactants were other irritants that were both genotoxic and cytotoxic! So I wanted to thank you because in reading the book twice I increased my knowledge tenfold! My girlfriend and I literally read your book together in bed :) Also the other day I was on the Rings of Desire site and saw that you used to sell autographed posters? Where was I?!? haha :) I'd love an autographed picture or poster! Would Love to hear from you soon!
Hi Jordan, Thanks for your email. I'm so glad to hear that my book has proven to be helpful to you, and that you took the time to let me know about it. Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad piercers out there, and plenty of them are taking on apprentices to create yet more untrained, unskilled practitioners. My hope is that my book will help to elevate the whole industry. By creating educated consumers, it helps put those hacks out of business. I didn't imagine it was going to be the kind of book couples read in bed together!  That kind of feedback sure puts a big smile on my face. You can get an autographed poster by ordering one through LeRoi. I'll be at their studio in Manhattan June 26-28 having a book signing and doing piercings. I've had a box of posters shipped there, and I can sign one for you and have it shipped out.

New Video Available

It has been a long time since I posted a new video on my clips4sale store.

The newest is of me performing a 10 gauge ampallang piercing (horizontally through the penis head) on a gentleman who already has a stretched Prince Albert piercing. It was shot during my visit to California last month, when I was guest piercing at Anomaly Piercing in Pasadena.

Oh, and it may surprise you to hear his comment: his nipple piercings were more intense than his ampallang (though I didn't perform them for him).

Note: it isn't SFW, and you have to be 18 years of age or older to view it.
