Piercing

Piercing Policy Updated

A story in the Herald News from Tennessee reported that Bryan Community college lightened its prohibition against visible piercings in school. It is good to see regulations becoming more flexible and open toward piercing, but limitations will still be imposed: http://rheaheraldnews.com/story/15370

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!

Props from a Piercer

I found this great review on a blog by a Montreal body artist

:

The Piercing Bible!

I have to admit that anyone interested in piercings or in becoming a piercer or who already works in this profession and has not yet read this book, you must read this! I have been aware of Elayne Angel since I began my career in 93′ and have worked on clients that she has pierced and I have great respect for her dedication and knowledge. This is the most straight forward and informative book on Piercing I have ever read and I reccomend it to anyone who enjoys piercings and all that goes into it from start to finish.

UK Forum Discusses The Piercing Bible

I ran into a UK-based forum about piercing. (You can tell from their slang, which is quite different from the US.) The members were discussing The Piercing Bible and below are the comments I found there: • Brilliant book alert! Hi piercers & piercees, theres a bloody great book I've just bought & I think everyone would benefit from having a copy, its called "The Piercing Bible" by Elayne Angel, the incredible piercing guru responsible for Rings Of Desire Its got plenty of info for us piercers to chew over, & a lot of info for anyone wanting to receive safe & professional piercings. Its not a how to pierce book, but its a mine of info. I've not finished reading it yet, but so far so fabulous!

Amazon.com Rankings

My publisher said I shouldn't put too much stock in the Amazon.com rankings for my book because they change continuously, but I can't help but feel a little excited to see that I'm within the top 20,000 books as of today (given that they have several million titles for sale)! And, The Piercing Bible is #3 in one book category, and #5 in another:

HCH Piercing Questions

I received this question from a piercee who hadn't been well informed by her piercer:

I got the horizontal hood piercing. I have a bead ring, Brenda the lady who pierced me said she couldn't use the barbell like the one in my tongue. I love my new piercing but Brenda is on vacation and I got some questions. I work in recieving and I'm constantly moving my ring always moves to the side; is that normal?? My period is coming cuz I could feel the cramps, do I need more than sea salt water and antibacterial soap to clean it?? And how how long do you have wait to have sex. My piercer said a week but I don't think that sounds right. Well these are my questions I hope to hear from you soon.. Thanks Christina
