Hello i was just wondering if nipple piercings will make it so i can't breastfeed? I have two children already but when i had them i found out my right nipple is inverted and looks awkward compare to my other nipple. I really don't like being shirtless in front of my boyfriend anymore because of it. I'm planning on having another child but not for a few years and I'm honestly just looking for a confidence boost. Love reading about your work :)

Here's what it says about that in The Piercing Bible:

Nipple Piercing and Breastfeeding Many pierced women express concerns about breastfeeding, but there does not appear to be any evidence that nipple piercings negatively affect the ability to breastfeed. A normal female nipple has a multiplicity of up to twenty porelike milk ducts, rather than a single spout. Therefore, a nipple piercing of ordinary size and uneventful healing won’t block them all. The ability to nurse could be impaired if a troubled nipple piercing causes excess scarring. When jewelry is removed from a well-healed nipple piercing, some colostrum or milk might seep or flow from the empty channel.

Leaving out your nipple jewelry during breastfeeding is safest for your infant, although some women do successfully nurse with it in place. Jewelry removal eliminates the most serious risk of your baby choking on a ball, ring, or bar that becomes unfastened. You also diminish the potential for other nursing problems such as difficulty latching on or damage to the soft tissue of your infant’s mouth. Another concern is that body jewelry might be a source of bacteria that could enter a baby’s system. Some women have had success nursing with flexible jewelry like PTFE barbells instead of metal. Do not wear a retainer that has an O-ring closure because it is not sufficiently secure to stay on during nursing.

If you decide to take out your jewelry and leave it out until you are done nursing, the piercing may shrink or close up by the time your baby is weaned. If your piercing is fully healed, there is some chance the hole could remain open. It may be possible to encourage a well-established channel to stay viable by passing a small, clean insertion taper through it on a regular basis. If the piercing has sealed shut and you wish to be repierced, it is best to wait at least three months after you stop nursing to allow the tissue to normalize.

Hi guys. I gave my wife a clit ring for a present,( I had it done, I just paid for it) and I think I was done in. The ring is situated to the right of the clit, does not look like it is through it.. What must I do? Please let me know.

BTW: I'm from South Africa so I can't come in or bring her in for an evaluation. Please help.

Thank you.

Hi Hennie, If you wish to have me evaluate your wife's piercing, I can do an online consultation. You can sign up for one here: http://www.piercingbible.com/piercing-problem-consultation

Hi Elayne, I finally had the pleasure of meeting and being pierced by you on 11/11/14 in Philly. I am in awe!!! You have a beautiful spirit and that was apparent from the moment I saw you. I feel like a groupie now. The experience of getting my VCH and Triangle was simply amazing. I would suggest you to anyone looking to be pierced. You are a wonderful amazing talent who has mastered her craft. I just wanted to say THANK YOU and wish you continued success in everything you do. I am truly a life long fan!!

Diamond

Elayne,

Thank you so much! I'm in love with my new piercing! You were so professional and patient; understanding and knowledgeable when answering all of our questions.You're amazing! I was a fan of you before my piercing and am more of one now! I can't thank you enough :)

‎ My girlfriend was just as nervous as I was on the drive down, but I did extensive research and didn't want anyone else to pierce me! 

You really are the best!

It was worth the 1yr wait to finally get pierced by you and you helped to make this birthday one in which I will never forget! 

Thanks Again!,

Diamond

I'm usually not one to ever leave reviews or feedback but this time I feel it's needed! I heard about Elayne awhile back the first time I had my nipples pierced but had missed her coming to Philly. I wound up not liking what I had and had a hard time healing so I wound up taking them out. A couple weeks ago I noticed Elayne was coming to Philly again so I sent an email thinking she was most likely booked up but luckily there was an opening so I had to take it and im very happy I did!!! Elayne was not only the nicest person I have ever met, but she is extremely informative and instantly puts you at ease. I thought for sure getting pierced a second time would hurt really bad but to my surprise I barely felt a thing. Out of the four times I have been pierced in the last couple years, my experience with Elayne has definitely been the best and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get pierced!! I will definitely be making a future appointment!

Thanks again Elayne!

Dear Elayne:

It was so nice seeing you yesterday (my 3rd visit with you!) 11/07/2014 at Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia, PA. I came for my 2nd set of three outer labia adornments. You make this process so quick and with the exception of a momentary “Startle” virtually painless! Although I’ve visited with you in the past, you still took the time with me, and made sure I understood the piercing I was receiving, my anatomy, the piercing process, the jewelry choice(s) & the healing process. You are an incredible woman, piercer & now friend. I will be stalking your calendar for my 3rd set of outer labia piercings in March 2015. Thank you again for your professionalism & commitment to your craft – you really set the bar high!!

I got my anti eyebrow 2 days ago and one of the exit points is red and tender no puss from wat I can see but the other side is perfect is it infected or is that normal for a new piercing?

HI Janee, It can be normal for some redness and tenderness to surround a new piercing.

But I can't say whether your piercing looks normal without doing a proper consultation, which would require photos. If you wish to sign up for a consultation, you can go to this page: http://piercingbible.com/piercing-problem-consultation

Information on appropriate care is located here: http://www.piercingbible.com/piercing-care

Good luck! Elayne

Very informative! Thank you!!

Thank you so much for the referral links! My experience with Bethra at Virtue and Vice in Athens GA was amazing. I got a properly placed vch piercing because Bethra knew how to work with anatomy a bit shy of passing the infamous q-tip test. She was quick, professional, and I barely felt a thing!

j.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I read your book and went to Marc in Worcester for my VCH piercing. He was extremely kind, professional and overall helpful. The piercing happened so quickly the pain went by even quicker. He was so informative and made me feel abundantly comfortable. I can't sing his praises high enough. Thank you so much. I truly respect your passion for quality piercing. I would have never considered getting my VCH or nipples pierced before reading your book and website. I'm so grateful.

Hi. I came across your page a few months ago and have been doing research into getting a VCH or maybe a HCH. I like the way they both look. I even contacted a piercer where I live in Chicago that you have listed on your page. I just have some quick questions. First is it possible to get both done if the anatomy allows? Also is there any jewelry that has a small hanging charm?

Hi Gail, Please use the Contact page for questions: http://www.piercingbible.com/contact and the Anatomy Consultations page for an anatomy consultation: http://www.piercingbible.com/contact

No hanging charms until after healing is done! Elayne

I was pierced (HCH) by Paul King 10+ years ago, before knowing his pedigree. He is awesome! I'm being re-pierced in the next week and may very well visit Cold Steel again!

PS - Awesome info on your website!!

I just need to find someone with exp. to do my clit piercing

If you'd like to be pierced by me personally, you can check my trips listed in the right column of this page. Or you can check my referrals page here: http://www.piercingbible.com/piercer-referrals

Note that "clit" or clitoris piercing is VERY rare; it is clitoral hood piercing that is popular. For more information, see the related pages under the PIERCING navigation tab at the top of the page.

I just got a vch piercing and wanted to know where I can find jewelry for it

If you just got the piercing, you should have gotten quality jewelry from your piercer, and it should remain in for at least 4-6 weeks. You can get jewelry right from this web page: http://www.piercingbible.com/jewelry and for custom work in white or yellow gold and gems: http://hindged.com/

What is the most common piercing women say turns them on? Also I live close to Huntsville, Alabama about 3 hours from Atlanta. When are you coming to an area close to us?

Hi Elaine,

Two years ago I was going through a tough time and wanted to find something for me that wasn't a tattoo. A visible piercing just wouldn't do in my field so I looked for something private. I found the VCH on your website. I never had much luck with orgasm so I figured a piercing wouldn't hurt. I went to Bob at Insight Studios in Chicago. The studio was a small well lit place in a sketchy neighborhood. Bob was very friendly and answered my questions. He did the piercing. Quick burst of pain and then some lightheadedness and I was set. Bob even gave me a lolly pop and discount since I had come from another state. Well let's just say I'm very satisfied. The piercing changed how I viewed myself and my sexual experiences in many positive ways and I am looking to add a Triangle piercing if my anatomy fits. Just wanted to email and say thank you for the consultation years ago and the awesome referral.

Brenda

Hi Elayne! I wanted to say Thank You again for my "mini Triangle" and VCH piercings you did for me at Cold Steel SF April 2014. Both piercings healed perfectly, probably because I both listened to my body and followed your aftercare instructions precisely to the letter! I am still figuring out how my body works, thanks to my new enhancements, and am enjoying every moment. At any rate, it was a pleasure finally meeting you in person and the piercing experience itself was nothing short of amazing. I hope my pictures helped others at conference! Hope to see you next trip. Lots of love to you!

Hi there I just wanted to give credit to one of your referred piercers Jesse Villemaire at Thrive Studios in Cambridge Ontario Canada. I was very body conscious and had a horizontal hood piercing for 16 years that I removed. I always thought it was pierced wrong. When I went to Jesse for VHP he confirmed through scar tissue that it was done incorrectly. He was so vastly knowledgable about everything piercing that I was no longer self conscious. I honestly could have listened to him talk all day!!! It's been 4 months my piercing is beautiful, gorgeous jewelry to boot!!! So worth the hour drive!!! I have recommended him to several people and will continue to see him for all my piercing needs. Thanks again

Well.... After my Initial Visit with you in March of this year at Infinite in Philadelphia for my 1st Genital Piercing (VCH) , I just knew I would be seeing you again. I was there (your 1st. client of the day!) yesterday (07/18/2014) yet again! I got my 1st. set of Outer Labia Piercings - and I am already In love with them! Elayne, you are an amazing woman - and an incredible piercer - with the standards of a Physician. You had prepared me so well prior to my first visit back in March, that this session was like meeting up with a friend just to chat! You are truly a dedicated professional and a credit to your profession. I hope you realize what a service you offer women. You don't just Pierce us, you Educate, Inspire & Empower us. I never thought at 50+ I would ever get ONE Genital Piercing, yet I walked out of the shop with two more than I had when I walked in knowing that I did this just for ME! I am in the "Corporate World" and I feel so sexy knowing that no one knows my "Little Secret(s)"!!! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. ps: I am stalking your November calendar for 2-more matching sets! I am already looking forward to the Visit.....

Kate

Thanks so much for the referral site! I got my triangle pierced in January by Courtney at St. Sabrina's. Not only was she very professional and competent, but she was so nice too. She didn't recommend sea salt soaks, but her reasoning to me was sound. (I'm a med tech, and I do wet preps, so I know what havoc a messed up pH can do for a person.)

Thanks again :)
