Love of Body Piercing

I got a fantastic message on my YouTube account:

I just wanted to thank you for writing The Piercing Bible, it has helped me grow as a piercer and develop a deep love for piercing. I started piercing as a way to get my foot in the door to the tattoo industry but my teacher put her heart and soul into teaching me how to pierce and always talked about you and your book. I have ordered two copies of your book, one for my home and one for the shop I work at. Thank you so much for inspiring so many people and for indirectly helping me find my first and second loves one being piercing and the second my teacher, we are now engaged to be married. thank you

My reply:

Thanks so much for your message and congratulations to you and your fiance!

That sure gave me a warm fuzzy feeling! I'm thrilled to hear that my book has proved to have such a positive impact on your career and your perspective on piercing. I can't say I ever imagined that my book would ever be responsible (even indirectly) for a romantic connection. I'm so happy that you shared your good news with me.

Send my warmest regards and respect to your mentor/fiance. I wish the two of you a lifetime of happiness together.

Thumbtack Posting: Genital Piercing Expert

I just posted about my upcoming piercing visit to Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia on a site called Thumbtack (and it was free).

Here it is:

Elayne Angel - Genital Piercing Expert.

This is what it says about the site:

What is Thumbtack?

Why can you go online right now and buy any product you want but you can't do the same for tutors, handymen, dog walkers, or other local services? Thumbtack is changing that.

Thumbtack isn't like typical local search directories that simply return business listings with ratings and reviews, leaving you no better off than the paper Yellow Pages.

Instead, Thumbtack gives you the ability to vet, contact and book service professionals the moment you find them.

Seems pretty cool!

Piercing Around the World (Even in Malta)

I received this message from a reader in Malta!

Hi, my name is B. and I'm from Malta, since I've bought your book you have become my idol. I love piercings, something that you don't find very often in Malta due to a bad reputations, originating from piercees who haven't had a good piercing  and weren't instructed properly on aftercare, this is because in Malta we do not have any real piercers, the ones we have are tattoo artists who took up piercing just for financial income.

I would really like to be a piercer one day, I've only had an apprenticeship from my girlfriend which is from Germany, right now I'm not able to go abroad to atend any courses or conventions due to financial difficulties as I'm using my salary to buy the necessary needs for a piercing studio.

I would really like to read a book wrote by you targeting piercers rather then piercees.
Kind Regards, B.

Where Can You Get Pierced By Elayne Angel?

I got this message in my YouTube inbox:

Hi Ms Angel. I got a piercing from you a very long time ago when I was 18. Now at age 31 I wouldn't trust anyone to pierce me but you. I have only ever known about you Rings of Desire location because I am from New Orleans. I am currently residing in Houston Texas but I am willing to travel to get a piercing by you. Where are you currently piercing if you still are and do you travel and pierce at different studios? Thank you for your consideration.


My Reply:

Inspiring and Amazing

I think I'm blushing again over this recent message:

 

Your book is amazing!! I took it out from the library and read it cover to cover before realizing I NEEDED my own copy. I cried when I opened a signed copy on Christmas Day. The content is thorough and Incredibly well written, and it was inspiring to me, being a young woman trying to break into the industry, to know it was written by a woman who has a lot of history in the Piercing World. I have never met you Elayne, but I know you inspire and amaze many people (including myself) with your hard work, knowledge and dedication.
