After lots of search on the net, I came across to your site and got access to piercingbible. its must have book for anyone looking for piercing. Actually there is so much misinformation [online as well as offline] about piercing. This book helps clear that. Its written in simple language and gives indepth information.

Elayne is no doubt expert in the field of piercing..

Thanks for the book and this blog


I saw the TLC show, "Strange Sex" featuring a segment with you and a lovely couple concerning genital piercings. I had never much considered body piercing; I have a few tattoos but the visible piercings would be a problem for work. (I would love to have a labret. So cute!)

Anyway, after the show I was so fascinated with the sexual enhancement aspect and having a super-secret piercing I was immediately all over your website and subsequently purchased your book. Also I very much appreciate it being available on all the major e-Reader platforms (sometimes Sony is left out, which is of course what I own)! After reading it I started researching piercers and found Kevin Jump at Piercology in Columbus, Ohio, whom I understand was a guest piercer at Rings of Desire. It was a two-hour drive, but TOTALLY worth it. I got my first piercing, a VCH, and am absolutely thrilled! I have "petite anatomy" as Kevin put it so unfortunately I wasn't suited for the triangle, which I thought I would enjoy, but so far I am loving what I've got! I am still healing but it looks perfect; I had a fantastic experience (and am sure to have many because of this!) and I just wanted to thank you because if not for your work I wouldn't have known anything about the world of body piercing.

As a medical professional, I admire the wealth of clinical knowledge shown in your book and your dedication to proper care. I hope to do my part to contribute to a wider acceptance of body piercing in the medical community, or at least as an acceptance of our patients' choices of expression and to its care. As a pharmacist I am often the first medical professional people see before they visit their physician, if they do that at all. I appreciate the straight-forward and medically appropriate care explained in your book, as they certainly don't teach much about that in school!

So, to you, Elayne, I extend a huge personal and professional thank you for excellence and commitment in your field. You would be an asset to any profession, including us stuffy medical types! THANKS!

Hello Elayne,

I got my VCH piercing for my 18th birthday and it's really a thanks to you, this blog, the Piercing Bible and others who have the VCH piercing and shared their experiences. 

I was sexually abused for five years when i was a kid so my body never did feel like it was completely mine until my birthday (the 17th). I feel so liberated, new, fresh and like i finally have a choice with my body-- i never knew a piercing could make someone feel this way or could help me out much more than any therapist could. Whenever i have flashbacks, or memories of the abuse, i can just smile it off now because my body finally feels like it's MINE and no one will ever be able to take it away and abuse it again.

Body modification has helped me out so much these past two years with finding myself again and gaining a strong sense of self and i feel like i owe a big thank you to you. You've enlightened me a lot on piercing (I want to be a piercer one day in the future) and have helped me realize how liberating and renewing a piercing can be-- thank you so much for being there for everyone, for writing the Piercing Bible and for being so passionate about body modification (you're a true inspiration)!

I've never been into tattoos or piercings but after watching "Strange Sex" episode, I became very interest in genital piercings. I really want one now, a VCH for sure. I live in MS but I don't want anyone doing it here. Do you recommend anybody near by or in surrounding states that I could let do it?

All of my piercer referrals are on this page of this website: There is a piercer in New Orleans who I trained and worked with for over 10 years! I highly recommend him.

This site was very informative .... I am glad I thought twice and decided to do some research.

I'm hoping that I can pierced by you when you come to Philly.

You are just an amazing woman!


If you'd like to be pierced by me in Philadelphia, details for my next trip are here:

Hi Elayne,>> I contacted you a few weeks ago to find out when you might be in Denver to complete a VCH piercing on me. You recommended Alicia Cardenas at Sol Tribe in Denver if I didn't feel like waiting for your visit.  I went to Sol Tribe yesterday for my piercing.  The first thing I noticed about the shop was how clean it smelled.  I couldn't help but feel like the entire shop was sanitary.  Alicia was wonderful.  She went over aftercare first, and then educated me step-by-step on the piercing procedure.  She made me feel quite comfortable.  The piercing itself wasn't painfree, but the pain was very brief, and Alicia walked me through by having me take slow deep breaths.  I would certainly recommend her to a friend, and I would definitely consider going back should I ever want another piercing.  Thank you for the referral!

Great site, have known about Elayne since the days of P.F.I.Q. magazine & Jim Ward.

Those who may have subscribed, my membership was TXM-300 & did several reader repies in several editions of P.F.I.Q. (Of which I lost my personal collection due to water damage after Hurricane IKE), only a few of the last editions I received remain, the first 30+ issues GONE..

Read about Elayne in Fet Life forums, which lead me to this site..

Good luck & best of wishes, looking forward to the book (Just ordered).

Hello internet folk,

Please do research before you get a [genital] piercing! Fortuantley this site and Elyane exist...I highly reccomend this site and the piercer referrels. I went to a respected place in my area and spent 100$ on botched piercing and possibly scar then consulted Elayne, she was very helpful and I cannot stress how glad I am to have her/this site. Then went to one of the places she referred and got everything fixed. Thank you so much! This is the place I have found info on the web.


I am a 50 something Grma who reconnected with my HS sweetheart.   He has numerous piercings and we have re-discovered each's other sensuality after many decades apart.  Out of all the holes he has made in his body, the only one not made by him was made by me when we were just teens together.  Because of his extensive piercings we are interested in obtaining "my first" and after discovering your site, I would really like to have it done by you.  You have educated me beyond any other, but I am unable to travel to New Orleans on June 2.  We live on the Gulf Coast of FLA, very near Tampa, will you be in our area at anytime in the near future?  If I cannot be pierced by you, can you recommend a competent, professional woman in my area who has been trained by you, or that you know and trust.  Thanking you in advance, I think you are beautiful and admire all of your body art. 

Hi Chele, Thanks for your wonderful message! Please email me at and I"ll be happy to answer your questions. Elayne


I have now read your book a few times and still sometimes refer back to it, it's been instrumental with regards to increasing my knowledge as a professional body piercer & I often recommend it to clients who're showing a real interest beyond the standard aftercare sheet, it's great for those who want to know more about piercing & its procedures. It's a great book which I think should be in every professional piercer's personal/ studio library and which every person who's truly addicted/ into their piercings should read to assure they're well informed and well educated and know what to expect, ask from their piercer. :-) xox

Thank you for this incredible reference and for your articles in Pain magazine.  I have been piercing professionally since 1996 and you have always been an inspiration to me for the level of professionalism I've tried to achieve in my craft.

I owe you a debt of gratitude, not just for this remarkable book, but for you endless contributions to the betterment of the art form I hold so personally dear.

So thanks!  You are truly awesome!

Austin Lambert

My piercer and I love your book, (we both have our own copies) and are actually making plans to go to the APP conference this summer! He bases his entire method upon yours, and I know he would appreciate me saying: WE LOVE YOU!

Elayne,  I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Piercing Bible, and appreciate your vast range of knowlege, expertise and attention to detail.  What a true labor of love!!  I only wish the book had been written prior to you performing my VCH piercing in NOLA/late 2004 (which remains a source of pleasure and delight 6+ years later), as I would have been a much better informed (and prepared) client for you to work with. Thanks again for all your good work ~ you are an amazingly wonderful, talented and experienced resource and I feel honored to have been pierced by you !! Blessings; I look forward to our paths crossing again soon.    

Elayne and her book has been the biggest inspiration to me EVER! It's what inspired myself to become a piercer! She's extremely knowledgable and friendly no matter what! I give alot of thanks to her and her work. Thank you Elayne I don't know where I'd be without you! Keep doing great for the industry!


I found your article on vch informative..... I am 49 and have a great partner and we have been considering this : ) So thank you I will DEFINITELY seek a professional for this. I live near to Bakersfield CA if you know of a qualified professional. Again thank you!!!

I do have a referral in West Hollywood in Southern California; it would be worth the trip to get the job done correctly.You can find his information on my referrals page of this website:

Thank you Kiss Jozef

This book got me through 4 very long delayed flights and airport drama over a 72 hour period. Think you know all there is to know about piercing? Think again. It is an easy read, and is written so we can all understand it without having to have a PHD.

Not to mention Elayne is approachable and answers e-mails promptly with no god complex or a just read my book for the answers atittude. As a professional piercer, I keep this book handy in my piercing room and refer to it when I don't have an answer for my clients. Thanks Elayane. I can dig it, and appreciate it.

I just want to say thank you again for paving the way and making it possible for me to do what i do today, your book is my bible, without it i would have been stuck so many times with no answers. Your book is hands down the best tool for people in the industry. Thank you again Elayne Angel for helping make it possible for so many of us to do what we love.
