I am 68 years old and want to have a VCH piercing if anatomically able. I live in a suburb of Cleveland OH. I am not having any luck finding a reputable piercer. Can you help?

Thanks.

Hi Susan,

Thanks for your message. Though the form on the CONTACT page is a better forum for questions.

To sign up for an anatomy consultation so I can check your suitability, please visit this page:  http://www.piercingbible.com/anatomy-consultations

All of my piercer referrals are posted on this page of my website: http://piercingbible.com/piercer-referrals 

If I haven't personally worked with or trained any piercers in your area, you can check the website for a member of the Association of Professional Piercers who is local to you:

http://www.safepiercing.org/get-involved/locate-a-member/searchable-memb...

The APP is a non-profit international organization dedicated to disseminating vital health and safety information about piercing to piercers, piercees, medical professionals, legislators, and the general public. The piercers are not "certified" by the association, however. While some of the piercers on the list may have taken my seminars at the annual APP conferences, I still wouldn't consider them to have been "trained by me," as those courses only last a few hours and aren't sufficient for providing a thorough education. Please meet the piercer and see if you develop a good rapport and if they inspire your confidence.

The best thing I can suggest to help you make good decisions about piercing is to become a more well-educated consumer. If you found my website informative, I think you'll be amazed by all of the valuable facts and practical advice in my book, The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing.  It contains loads of information about evaluating piercers and studios, piercing placements, appropriate body jewelry sizes, styles, and materials, aftercare, troubleshooting, and much, much more. My website contains just barely a taste of the information in my book!

Elayne

My husband and I flew to LA to get pierced by Elayne on Dec. 6, 2015. We've been pierced before but wanted to get more piercings. Finding the right piercer isn't always easy but Elayne's credentials are top-shelf to say the least. It was an easy decision for us to fly out and meet with Elayne. I got two inner labia piercings plus a VCH while my husband got three frenum (ladder). In the process, Elayne noticed that a previous inner labia piercing thought to be closed was actually still open and ready for business. The piercings themselves went off without a hitch and with minimal pain. By far one of the most pain-free piercing sessions we've ever had because of Elayne's swiftness and overall technique. This is even more evident by how fast we're healing! Her post-piercing care advice is invaluable and the Emu oil really does make a difference. I am now almost 100% healed and my husband is half way there himself (his piercings typically have a longer healing time so it's normal that I'm healed before he is). We're so pleased! And we can't imagine doing this again with anyone other than Elayne.

After my husband and I was reading your website and information. We were very impressed, we live in the Kansas City area. We went to Supernatural Body Piercing, we spoke with Clay. He was very knowledgeable and polite, after talking with him for about 30 minutes we decided to go ahead. I had a vertical hood piercing, he was Awesome!! Thank you

I've encountered a mishap with my nipple piercing (done by a local piercer) and though unfortunate that I eventually lost it to migration/rejection, I was able to receive amazing professional advice from Elayne, whose intentions were meant to save the piercing.

Although I may have seeked her advice a tad bit too late, she indicated that the nipple was pierced too superficially so probably it was inevitable that it would migrate - and although we did not speak face to face (only through emails), she conveyed warm, nurturing and comforting words of wisdom and advice very steadfastly!

Elayne, your kind, caring and trustworthy demeanour has put me at ease with deciding to get pierced by you. I look forward to having my other nipple pierced even if I have to travel overseas to do so!

Elayne lives up to her name, as she truly is an angel and a blessing. I had the immense pleasure of receiving a triangle peircing by her when she was in Philly in November...I've wanted this piercing for nearly a decade but was always too cautious to subject myself to putting it in the wrong hands. I got caught up in life and my piercing desires were put on the back burner until this past summer, when in leu of my 30th birthday I decided I wanted to get on the ball with acquiring the piercings I've wanted. I found out about Elayne, and just knew if there was anyone I could trust to receive a triangle piercing from, it would be her. I was beyond appreciative that she was able to squeeze me in for an appointment for her Philly visit, and was pleasantly surprised that she was so quick and punctual in replying to my email inquiries. She admitted that she receives 50-100 emails daily....it blows my mind that she not only is so responsive to all these messages, but she isn't flippant in her responses either; even through email she conveys caring, warmth, wisdom, and professionalism.

When the big day arrived, I felt rather calm and collected....I felt confident not only in my conviction of wanting the piercing, but in the person who would be giving it to me [Elayne], and I believe that is such an important mindset to be able to have when obtaining such a delicate piercing. The fan girl in me was humming with excitement at meeting Elayne, but I kept her under wraps in order to keep calm, lol. I did feel slightly nervous in anticipation of the pain, but didn't let myself focus on those fears, and Elayne kept me further at ease by her warm nature. She's incredibly hypnotizing...she commands your attention but in an understated way; through her warmth and authenticity, your attention naturally gravitates to her. She kept me informed every step of the way as to what she was doing, and explained every step in detail. All of this helped me cultivate and keep my sense of calm and relaxation. When the needle pierced my skin, I was exuberant...I didn't feel a darned thing! I was expecting it to be jolting like my VCH atleast, and possibly close to intensity in pain as my nipples were, but I was exceedingly lucky as I didn't feel any inkling of pain at all. And just like that, I had my most beloved piercing, with perfect placement and jewelry, performed perfectly by the Goddess of a piercer, Elayne Angel. Even when I ran into an issue a month into healing (I started to develop some hypertrophic scarring), Elayne was quick to offer her opinion and treatment advice, which proved to be invaluable. I'm now two months into healing my piercing and it is coming along swimmingly (with the scarring gone!). I will forever remember this experience as one of the highlights of my life, for which I will forever be grateful for <3.

I am a 43 year old mother of two, and although in my late 20s Inwas considering some genital piercing, I never had them done. I decided it was long overdue so after doing a lot of research, including buying and reading Elaynes book cover to cover, I knew she was the right piercer for me.

I flew three hours but it was absolutely worth it! had a wonderful experience with Elayne. You will too!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Elayne! I visited with you once again in Philly at Infinite Body Piercing on 11/10/2015 for my coveted “Triangle” Piercing. 1st Let me say that this was an intense piercing – but now I understand why. I am almost 3-weeks out in the healing process and I am already so in love with this formerly elusive piercing! I’ve been able to feel & experience things after this piercing that I have never been able to feel - prior to this piercing, and the sensations are only intensifying as the healing process progresses! As you know Elayne - I am in my early 50’s so I know that nothing prior to this piercing (even my VCH) even comes close to the amount of gratification I have felt with the “Triangle”. Your professionalism, skill, knowledge, compassion & dedication to your craft makes everyone who is pierced by you walk out of the shop confident well informed and better education about their choice to be pierced by you! Please Keep Doing what You Do!!! I will be stalking your calendar for your next trip to PA. Thank You again.

James Cates

I am a body piercer in Raleigh, NC at Savage Tattoos. I read your bible and it really taught me to pierce with my bosses expertize as well. I still will not perform a cheek piercing because of your story. Any way my question is this. Where do you stand on performing infants ears? I believe they should wait until the child wants to have it done but some parents say its their decision and I would have to disagree. I'm a veteran so I believe in we are a free society to make our own decisions when we are ready to. Its why we take our oathe. To defend freedom at all costs. Anyway not trying to start a debate I would just like to hear your opinion. I do hold it in high regards and I always tell people to research their piercing in your book. Keep up the good work! Thank you for your time as well.

Hi James,

Thanks for your positive comments! I'm happy to hear that you learned so much from my book. You definitely have the right to decline to pierce infants and children. I cover this topic on page 251 in The Piercing Bible. Here's an excerpt from that section:

I will perform piercings only on individuals who specifically consent to the act and agree to comply with maintenance procedures during healing. Obviously, this includes declining to pierce babies or toddlers who are too young to grasp the situation—and all animals, of course. I will pierce the earlobes of a child who is old enough to knowingly make the request for it. He or she must also comprehend the need to keep dirty fingers away during healing and promise to abide by my instructions, usually with a parent’s help. Many of my colleagues share my standards, though some are more accommodating, and others even stricter.

Robert & Teresa

We have done much research for Teresa's genital piercing. Had no idea there were 3 ways (VCH, HCH or triangle) until finding this great website. We did the email consultation and got some good incite and a referral of someone Elayne knows well in our area. We now feel more confident we know the right questions to ask and think we well be able to understand the answers we get but if not we know Elayne will be there to help. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.

I was pierced by Elayne on November 12, 2015 at 7:30 PM at Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia. I got a Prince Albert and a Guiche. I had a very positive experience. There is no way I would have had anyone else pierce me down there! Elayne is not only a master piercer, but she is very professional, very friendly, very patient, and very lovable. At no time did I feel uncomfortable during the procedure. I am anxious by nature, so she continued to assure me that I would be okay. Now I have two beautiful piercings. Thank you so much.

It was not as bad as I thought it would be. To me both piercings were “easy to medium” as described in The Piercing Bible on page 32. I have had both nipples, both earlobes, and my tongue pierced in the past. I did not feel the earlobes or tongue being pierced at all. The nipples were the most painful piercings I got. The needle stung at the entrance and exit and I felt a lot of pressure as the needle went through. The Guiche only stung for a split-second as Elayne pushed the needle swiftly through my flesh. The PA hardly stung at all. The only thing I really felt was the receiving tube, which was more “annoying” than anything else.

I always wanted to get a PA, but it has always been a challenging decision mentally. I would start worrying about everything that can go wrong with it. What made the decision easier was buying and reading The Piercing Bible, buying and watching Elayne's videos performing PA piercings, and having Elayne pierce me. The bleeding was not too bad. I have been wearing Depend diapers, and have not had any leaks. I did start taking a Vitamin K supplement approximately three weeks prior to my appointment, and I will probably continue taking the supplement for one more week. I got the piercing two days ago and I am hardly bleeding any more. Urinating did not sting at all for me, but I have been urinating under water. I place my penis inside a cup full of water over the bathtub. I am mostly talking about the PA because it was the piercing I was worried about, but now I know that there was nothing to worry about.

I traveled approximately six hundred miles to get pierced by Elayne, and I would definitely do it again if I desire to be pierced again in the future.

Elayne, thank you again so much for two beautiful piercings and for making me feel so welcome and loved. You are truly an Angel!

Visited Elayne Angel yesterday in Philly for my much desired Triangle Piercing! This is not my 1st visit with Elayne and it will not be my last. If you desire a Genital Piercing, First do your research, then book an appointment with Elayne. Don't trust that special area to just anyone!!! She really is as friendly, comforting & professional as she seems.

Tia

I have been research a vch piercing for awhile and came across her website, which is great and very informative. Unfortunately she was all booked up to her visit to philly, but she replied to my email with the quickness, which I appreciated and she gave me the answers to my questions and it felt so personable even three email. Hopefully I will get to meet the beautiful person on her next visit but in the meantime she did give referral to someone at the shop that she wld b visting. I say if u can wait or luck up and get pierced by her I would. I only can imagine what she is like in person cuz her website and her personal email def shows she knows her thing and take care of her customer and potiental customers. Which is hard to come by this day in age. Thank u so much

Brittany Bleu

I am so glad I stumbled upon you and this book during my research following my interest in a genital piercing. I got a VCH from Kevin at HTC in Tempe, AZ and the experience was amazing. He was knowledgeable, professional, and extremely personable. He made the experience much less awkward than I expected it to be. I will definitey be going to him for my future piercing needs. Thank you so much for everything.

Alessia Modonutti

Hi Elayne, I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful website and the piercers referrals. I live in London and last week I went to see Julie at Cold Steel for a VCH. She is truly amazing and I am delighted with my new piercing. Thank you so much Alessia

Reached out to Elayne to complete an Apadravya from my existing Prince Albert. After emailing back and forth with Elayne I decided to get the Appy piercing along with a Pubic and a Lorum. Elayne's prompt and considerate responses to my emails put me at ease and demonstrated her great knowledge and professionalism. Additionally I bought a copy of Elayne's book and finished it a couple days before my appointment. I highly recommend anyone considering getting pierced, whether by Elayne or not to read her book. You will learn everything you need to know to have a great piercing experience. I thought my appointment day would never come!

My appointment with Elayne was simply awesome. She was just as warm and friendly in person as her correspondences. More so really cause in person she has such a nice smile. She patiently explained what would happen each step of the way and that I would have a beautiful new piercing when we were done. And she was right! Once we were in the piercing room her calmness and control put me at ease and settled my nerves. I asked every question that came to mind and she answered each one to my satisfaction. We had a really good time actually. I even managed a laugh a few times. Elanye paid special attention to placement of the piercings. She spent a lot of time marking and asked me what I thought. I gave my opinion - she responded and we would agree on just the right placement. She involved me in the discussion about the fit of the jewelry which was so important to me. Elanye worked around me with the sureness and skill level of an experienced professional. Her painstaking attention to sterile procedures was on full display - just like she outlines in her book. Seeing her expertise in action was so reassuring too. The actual piercings were over in an instant. Didn't hurt nearly as much as I had been fearing - more like a firm pinch - three of them. She also made sure I remembered to breathe afterward! After each piercing Elayne applied a cold compress and made sure I was ready before moving on to the next. Then we were done!

Elayne talked to me about aftercare and made sure I had a plan for a great healing. I can't say enough nice things about this experience. I shared a moment with Elayne and got exactly the piercings I wanted. I could not be happier with them. If you are considering a new piercing, I highly recommend you reach out to Elayne.

Thanks for the great experience Elayne! You are super!

I went to elayne for my vch piercing. I first did tons of research which lead me to this website. In April i booked my piercing for September. During the entire 5 months she stayed in touch with me (had qtip test issues lol) however she made sure everything was ok. Her personality alone made me less nervous along with her sense of humor. She was very thorough with her step by step of how the piercing would be. It was quick and painless (more shocking than painless). I would recommend her 1000x! You are the best and the day you gained a loyal customer but a niece too ms elayne. Thank you for your services and your warm personality!!

I found Elayne's site simply looking for information about nostril piercing placement...I had not had the best experience going in, as the piercer had difficulty getting the nostril screw to fit properly. It kept hanging out of the bottom of my nostril ( I am a teacher, and regardless, its no fun to walk around that way!) I went back twice within 2 weeks to have the jewelry tweaked and having the labret moved in and out while the piercer 'measured'....my poor nose was beaten up, and the experience resulted in me doubting his expertise. And, I still came away with wire hanging down out of my nose!....I was 'rescued' a few weeks later by another piercer, who put a shorter screw in for me ( so gently I did not even feel it done!) but still felt insecure about the entire process. I was excited to read Elayne's advice to others on her site, and ELATED that she does consultations for such a reasonable fee!....I emailed Elayne and she responded within hours, so thoughtfully and from her heart. I feel so much better having an aesthetic opinion from someone who obviously puts so much in to mastering her craft. Thank you again, Elayne...namaste.

Everything is just phenomenal over here on my end! 2 weeks ago I took a trip over to San Francisco where I flew out from Chicago to meet with Elayne Angel for an appointment at Cold Steel Tattoo and Piercing on the famous Haight Street. After following all of Elayne’s instructions, my new apadravya piercing has been healing as good as it gets. The look AND the feel of my piercing is awesome and I wouldn't ever consider second-guessing myself or going back in time to avoid having it done. Again, I thank Ms. Elayne Angel so very much for all of her help and continued support throughout the entire process. Her level of professionalism was absolutely tremendous and I can't say that loudly enough. It was truly an honor to receive my piercing from her and most definitely appreciate all that she has done. I love it! She performed such a wonderful job with amazing placement. Everything occurred perfectly as planned because her technique is so advanced. The sea salt water soaks and the emu oil from Desert Palms Emu Ranch are wonderful and do a terrific job-I am absolutely hooked on the Desert Palms Emu Ranch Oil and have been recommending the product to some of my family and friends since it has such a multitude of uses. From the bottom of my heart, once again, thank you Elayne. You are so remarkable at what you do for a living.
