I recently had my nose pierced and was concerned about the placement, so I contacted Elayne for an anatomy consultation. I sent her several pictures of my piercing and she was very quick to respond, very professional and SO sweet. She marked one of my pictures with lines to show what she describes as the “pleasing triangle” and she also included additional information and a diagram regarding placement. Lucky for me, she said my piercing is well placed for my anatomy! Seeing the markings on my picture along with all of the additional information that she gave me definitely put my mind at ease about my piercing. I was also experiencing some redness around the piercing and she sent me information, recommendations and links regarding aftercare and helped to set me on a better healing path. Thank you Elayne, you are wonderful!!

I wrote Elayne a couple years ago with questions about a vch. She got back to me promptly with so much information and was so helpful! I live in Northern California and she referred me to Cold Steel in San Francisco where I saw Becky Dill. I will only ever see Becky now for all piercing needs and desires. She is sweet, professional and made me feel so comfortable. She really knows what she is doing and that gave me so much confidence. I'm so grateful to Elayne for the referral and all her time and knowledge and to Becky for being awesome. Thanks guys! Love my vch!!

Well, what can I say?! Elayne Angel is the BEST! I met her at Infinite Piercing in Philly on 11/16/13 for a VCH piercing. (This was something I really want to do for a long time but to afraid to do). Anywhoo, Elayne was amazing! She made me feel very comfortable about the decision I had made. She was very knowledgeabe, professional, patient and gentle which was really needed, because I was extremely afraid. She truly cares more about your overall health and well being as opposed to a "hard" sale. She is truly gifted and kind!! Thanks Elayne!! Oh, FYI, the EMU oil is an amazing healing oil for the VCH!! LOVE IT!!

Having previously left a message on this guestbook after Elayne gave me an anatomy consultation in July, I had to come back and tell all of you how amazing it was to be pierced by this fantastic woman! I arranged to see Elayne during her visit to Infinite in Philly on 11/14/13 with hopes that she could fulfill my wish of a VCH. When I got to the shop, and met Elayne, I knew that I was in for a wonderful experience!

Since I had decided to get my nipples done as well, I removed my top and bra so that Elayne could tell me what she thought. I've been blessed with fairly prominent nipples, so it took no time at all for Elayne to mark and prep me. When the actual piercing time came it was intense for a few moments, then it was over! Elayne had both in so quickly I was mostly just stunned instead of in excruciating pain. My nipples look gorgeous, and I'm so honored to have had Elayne do this for me!

In closing, I just want to say that Elayne counseled me to not get a VCH because she worried that my tissue might not be sturdy enough. I held a mirror while she thoroughly explained my genital piercing options, and remarkably I'm actually eligible for a Triange piercing! Elayne then told me that it was ok for me to wait on the Triangle since both nipples in one day was more than enough. This alone is why I trust Elayne! Although she barely knew me, she cared about my wellbeing, and loves her work so much!

Anyone thinking of being pierced by Elayne should do it! I will certainly be back!

Thanks Elayne!!!

Elayne was so wonderful to me when I went to her for a consultation on a nipple piercing gone wrong. She calmed me down and gave me clear instructions on the best path forward. She was understanding and very knowledgable about what to do. She took the time to ask me for more information to give me a better answer to my questions, and always responded incredibly quickly. I am so glad I went to her for advice! Thank you so much, Elayne!!

Carolyn

Elayne - you are fantastic!! Thank you so much for your assistance long distance as I sorted out my nipple piercing problem. I was so afraid I was going to have to abandon the piercings. Your information on quality jewelry was enlightening...After having the nipple piercings heal very well two months ahead of schedule I was surprised when I began to have issues. Only after talking with you did it make sense that the most problems occurred after I got new jewelry placed. I am frustrated I was sold inferior jewelry, at superior prices I might add, when I visited the shop I bought them from while traveling. Now that the original piercing barbells are back in things feel SO much better and are healing nicely. Thank you again for being a rock star and knowing your stuff! Will see you again soon ~

I had been thinking about getting a VCH for a long time. When i finally Moved for college i knew this was the perfect time! I was doing research and found PIERCINGBIBLE. Not only was the website legit and helpful, but Elayne answered promptly and professionally to any additional questions i might've had. I then looked under her referrals and ended up in a shop she had suggested called Immaculate piercings in South Carolina. i made an appointment and BAM! i had a VCH. My piercer was AMAZING! She walked me through the whole thing and eased my nerves. The shop was clean and i had an amazing experience. All i felt was a sharp pinch! It's been about a month and a half now. My piecing was done RIGHT, and effectively. Im soooooo glad i found such a helpful resource-- or this could've been disastrous instead of pleasurable!

THAAANK YOUUUUU! :D

*Jess*

Hey =) I love your site and been looking around like an crazy person. =) My husband is doing tattoo and I would like to start doing Piercing. I am wondering if you would have time to just let me know some basics about the needle and jewellery to use. As in said, have a slightly larger needle for the jewellery? And such.

Would be so greatful =) Jessica

Hi Jessica, If you have an interest in becoming a professional piercer, and you haven't already done so, I would absolutely recommend that you read my book as your next step.Every page will have useful and helpful information, and everything in there is something you will ultimately need to know. I can say I'd be surprised if you didn't think it was the best $20. you ever spent toward learning about body piercing.

If you'd like to see me performing piercings, and demonstrating exactly where they should be placed, I've got videos available here: http://www.clips4sale.com/store/10557

I wanted to say how grateful I am to have purchased Elayne's book. The knowledge within is just great. I can truly say the piercing adventure I've embarked on has changed my life.

Hi Elayne, I can’t thank you enough for your personal involvement and efforts to educate the general population about body piercing! The wealth of information you offer through your website, “The Piercing Bible” book, videos, and email communications armed me with everything I needed in order to insure a safe and excellent piercing experience. I can’t thank you enough for that!! Although I would have loved to have received my VCH piercing from you, our schedules conflicted so I used your online “piercer referrals” resource to find, Clay Wanstrath at Freaks on 39th in Kansas City to do my piercing. Clay is a member of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) and was very professional, knowledgeable, skilled, amiable and non-judgmental! He has a calming and caring demeanor which helped set me at ease. He also took his time, answered all of my questions from, what the bar was made of, to the piercing aftercare. He made every effort to ensure I was comfortable and explained what he was doing slowly and step-by-step. It was really great to hear him say, “If Elayne says that, I don’t question it!” That was all I needed – I was ready for my piercing! The whole experience has been unbelievably awesome! I am so please and happy with my piercing, and I owe it to you and Clay Wanstrath!! Now, the only question is… what to pierce next? Thank you, to both you and Clay, you’re awesome!!

I had read over Elayne's website thoroughly, and checked some of the local shops regarding piercings. I was never fully satisfied that they knew the proper technique and they could never answer my questions to my satisfaction. I live in Nashville, and there is NO ONE in this area who are members of APP. I began going thru Elayne's referrals of people in surrounding states, and located Bethra in the Atlanta/Athens GA area. Knowing that Bethra had done a sort of apprenticeship with Elayne, I decided I would make the drive and at least TALK to her and see what she had to say. SHE WAS WONDERFUL! I was immediately at ease, and she could not have explained things any better. The entire consultation/piercing process was 30 minutes tops. My VCH and nipple piercings are awesome. If there is no one in your area who is APP certified, I would definitely recommend making the drive to see Bethre -you will not be disappointed!!!

Kate

Hi Elayne,

I'm a huge fan! I just wanted to thank you for your recommendation of Desert Palms Emu oil. It's so great. I've also emailed Deb telling her how great her product is. I've been using it on my healing piercings, tattoos and eczema. I gave some to my 89 year old grandmother for her birthday. She had basal cell carcinoma removed from her nose (it was completely excised thank goodness!). Her dermatologist could not believe how well her nose is healing up from that procedure. She's now using it for her keratosis and eczema and is seeing major relief.

Thanks again! Kate

I sought Elayne's expertise regarding having my nose pierced. I had already purchased Elayne's book, The Piercing Bible. However, I still wanted to take advantage of having Elayne's personal counsel on my individual situation. First of all, Elayne provides wonderful attention to your concerns, questions and issues. She is patient, honest, thorough and knowledgable. In merely one initial exchange, you will see and feel her passion and commitment to the piercing industry. Because of her counsel and advice, I felt comfortable in making the decision to pierce. I love my new piercing! I have not experienced any pain or discomfort. I have no regrets about my decision. Elayne is truly phenomenal at what she does. I would have paid double for the services she provides. Thank you, Elayne!

NOTE: Amber contacted me again and said this, "Thank you so very much for your attention to my issue. Thank you for understanding my being cautious about this issue and not thinking I'm making too much of this situation. I can not tell you how often I've heard negative feedback from my meticulous nature about being pierced. So thank you so very much again, for understanding.

To update you, I went to TRX studio and met with Stan. I was really impressed with his professionalism, the patience and expertise he showed when fielding my questions and the time he willingly provided. Based upon my experience with Stan, I decided to have the piercing done. It was a great experience! The piercing did not hurt at all. There was no bleeding and no tearing of the eye. Even after the piercing there has been no pain or "crusties". I am doing the soaks and using saline spray as well. So all is well and I am LOVING my new piercing! Yay!!!!!

In reference to your request of posting feedback on your guestbook, I would be honored. It has been a wonderful experience working with such a legend! I soooo think you under charge for what you do. Consequently, I will be going to your page to make a donation. [ http://piercingbible.com/appreciation ]

Thanks again. You really are an angel.

Sincerely, Amber"

My online consultation for a VCH with Elayne was thorough, informative, and full of caring concern. When the pictures I sent made Elayne feel that I wasn't an ideal candidate for this piercing, she told me in detail why it could be difficult. Really wanting this piercing, Elayne recommended I visit Ed or Kellan at Infinite for a real life consult. Saw Ed (who is amazing btw!), and he confirmed exactly what Elayne could tell by email!! While it's possible for me to get the VCH, it will be tricky, so I've decided to hold off for a bit. Ed double pierced my lobes yesterday, so I now have gorgeous triples!

Elayne by the time this goes up on your site I'll already have thanked you by private email, but just wanted to say to anyone interested in a consultation with you : ELAYNE IS THE BEST!!!! You were truly my angel in this case, as some unscrupulous piercers might have really damaged me just to get my money. I WILL one day be pierced by you, and you'd better expect a huge hug when I show up lol!

Much love and respect, Kim

Rachel

I recently went to one of your refferals at Lady Luck to get a vch piercing done by Tiffany, she was VERY knowledgable and informed me that I was not suited for such a piercing and suggested the Diana. I had such a great experience, she made me feel so comfortable and answered all of my questions. I'm very happy with my piercing and will be returning to this shop for future work, thank you for having such a wonderful piercer on your list :)

Susie

Hi Elayne! Let me just start off by saying thank you for everything that you've done for the piercing industry, especially for us ladies. You are one of the most respected piercers and you are a woman in a male dominated industry, I really look up to you. Also I want to thank you for your referral to Roger Rabb!t at Ancient Adornments, he's awesome! I recently got my nipples pierced by him and he was really professional, comforting, and super friendly. He's one of those people that talk to you and make you feel like you've been friends for many years. And the jewelry he sells is gorgeous! I highly recommend him to anyone that visits, the shop I work at, looking to get advanced piercings. I know I missed you in April when you were over there, but I definitely want to meet you and get pierced by you. I've signed up for your newsletter so it's only a matter of time :)

You've got three piercing converts! My sissy started it, she got her VCH from Becky at Cold Steel. She's the piercing lover, our Momma had just older single lobes, I had triple lobes, tragus, anti tragus and two upper helix in both ears, Sis has more than I can recall.

Darn her, I got tired of her bragging, and the VCH sounded nice, and I can walk to Sol Tribe, so I want a VCH and you recommend Alicia. So, I went in for a VCH, thought I might pass out from nerves. Alicia was so nice! My nerves settled down, and since I was there, and have the room - I walked out with a VCH and triangle. Both are perfectly placed, no problems, healed nicely.

So Sis and I are visiting for Momma's 65th birthday, and got to giggling about our husbands and their enjoyment and indulgence in our jewelry. So Momma decides she needs to join in. Off to visit Tiffany who was amazing to work with.

Dad isn't sure what to think.

fascinated by all the pictures have thinking about body piecing since i saw the story of O and old porn movie. But i always wonder about the pain yet it turns me on!! just need to find courage...

The best way to build your courage is by becoming an educated consumer so you can make safe choices about piercing. The Piercing Bible would help a LOT!

Also, if you'd like to see me performing piercings, and demonstrating exactly where they should be placed and how quickly and easily an expert can perform them, I've got videos available here: http://www.clips4sale.com/store/10557 (You'll see that I can perform a piercing in an instant!)

I had the fortune of getting pierced by the amazing Elayne Angel back in April at Ancient Adornments (a beautiful studio!)

It was an absolutely wonderful experience! I had my nipples pierced previously, but it unfortunately didn't work out for me, so i made the decision to retire the piercings in hopes that maybe they would heal better if i had Elayne pierce them for me. I was extremely anxious about getting my nipples pierced again, and I can only imagine how annoying i must have been to Elayne, Roger, and Matt. Elayne was unbelievably patient with me; she went through my jewelry options, told me what she thought would be best for me and why, she was very thorough with everything. After the jewelry was selected, everything was sterilized, and i was cleaned and marked, it was time to get pierced! My anxiety reached it's peak, but Elayne managed to help calm me down. I took the deep breaths, and before i knew it, the piercing was already over with. Oddly enough, it was less painful than the first time i got my nipples pierced.

Elayne is without a doubt a magical piercer, and i'm positively grateful i finally had the opportunity to get pierced by her. She was notably patient, understanding, professional, empathetic, and overall just wonderful. My piercings are healing far better this time around (knock on wood!), and I really think i only have Elayne to thank for this. Thank you so much Elayne, I truly appreciate it!

Greg

I have just got into piercing and now have a jacobs ladder, a prince albert, both ears and a nipple piercing. I find your site very interesting and informative. Thanks Greg

Thanks for the positive feedback, Greg. I'm glad you're enjoying the site! Elayne
