The Piercing Bible review

Raves (But No Rants)

I just ran into a whole page of wonderful mini-reviews at bodyartforms:

Posted on 12/5/2009 So far Im loving this book! Ive learned so many interesting facts that Im rambling off to my family lol I would highly recommend for someone who wants a piercing or just anyone interested in piercings =]
Posted on 11/27/2009 This is a must have book for anyone interested in body piercing, it is probably the best and most comprehensive book you could buy on the subject right now. The book covers a wide range of subjects and includes diagrams. I would have preferred the book to include colour photographs and for me it spent too much time on the basics (but this would be a positive for people new to the subject).
Posted on 10/16/2009 Very comprehensive book. Has lots of info for beginners and also plenty of interesting things for those who have been around awhile. Wish I had this book 10 years ago!
Posted on 8/31/2009 Thisd is an awesome book lets you know everything you need to know about piercing..definitely recomend this to anyone who is into piercing and modification..
Posted on 8/23/2009 Excellent book that covers everything you can think of relating to body piercings. Very in depth and detailed. A fantastic reference and learning resource. A must have for every piercing fanatic!
Posted on 8/11/2009 this book is a must have for anyone who is even considering getting a piercing. i've learned so much from this book and i'm not even finished yet. get this book.

Posted on 6/30/2009 This book is the ultimate companion for a piercer and piercee. I'm both and this book is great for both. A must have for any body piercing enthusiast.

"Very Well Written"

Here's a review from Barnes & Noble.com:

Great book for beginners and professionals by jwhite0520

Reader Rating: See Detailed Ratings November 20, 2009: I had ended up buying this book after reading about the princess diana piercing. I found it to be very informative and have read it from cover to cover.... It is very well written and helpful for piercees of all ages and experiences. I also highly recommend this book if you are uncertain or thinking of an unusual piercing... 5 stars!

I Wasn't Sure What To Think

When I first saw the headline of a review on this site:

DO NOT Buy The Piercing Bible

It made my stomach drop. I thought I was about to read my first bad review. Then it went on: Do not waste your time buying the Piercing Bible if you have  done over 40,000 piercings, was a medical liaison to the Association of Professional Piercers, and ran the only body piercing studio in the French Quarter in New Orleans for 12 straight years.  Also, do not waste your time buying the Piercing Bible if you simply want to continue sucking at being a piercer or a piercee. And I began to realize that it was actually a very positive review! It went on: If you have done all of the above things, than your name must be Elayne Angel; author of The Piercing Bible and you should probably just ignore this post as it will be completely useless to you. If you answered no to ANY of the above questions and you want to be a better piercer or piercee, than you need to get this book.  Period.  I don’t care if you’ve done 39,999 piercings and this afternoon you’ll hit your 40,000th with that belly button you have booked…you still need to get this book.

More Great (Brief) Reviews

Customer Reviews: Get this book. Even if you are already well-informed about piercings, aftercare, etc., its a very handy resource to have around. It talks about piercings in plain language that everyone can understand. It also talks about what to look for in a studio, in a piercer, what to do if your piercing acts up, and all sorts of other important things.

"Finally, a well-written book covering body piercing! This book is the BEST reference for piercer and piercee alike!"

And I found The Piercing Bible advertised as being for sale in India on this website.

The Latest Review

I just saw the latest review of The Piercing Bible on Google books:

User Review - Johnny T This book is the best! I have been piercing for three years and i thought i knew a lot, but i recently picked up this book and it opened a whole new world for me! If you like body art it is an amazing ... More book to read and if you are learning how to perform body art then it is a must have! I have introduced all of my co-workers, friends and family to this book and all of them agree that it is great!

I also noticed that I have a total of 11 reviews there that have 5 stars, and none of them have any less than that, which is pretty wonderful and exciting!

Library Thing

I signed up for a cool site called Library Thing. It is for people who love to read and they can interact with others who share their passion for books. There's all sorts of forums and groups and plenty of book reviews and all kinds of cool stuff. I set up a profile, and I was able to get an "author" button because some of the readers had my book in their "libraries." You can also connect with people who have the same books as you have in your library. Anyway, I noticed a review of The Piercing Bible that written by one of  the members. It started off:
This book is awesome, whether you're a professional piercer, regular piercee, apprenticing or just academically inerested.
I contacted him to thank him for the great review and he responded back to me:
Absolutely! I adore your book and will probably have to purchase a second copy, as I've managed to practically wear out the copy I already have. It was most useful on at least 2 of the papers I have to write for anthropology classes, this past school year! It's by far one of the most useful and informative books I've ever owned. Oh yeah! And kudos to Powell's Books, here in Portland OR, for having it IN STOCK when Amazon was still telling me that it was on order and not due to even be printed for another three months (that was back in March).

"Absolutely Great!"

Yes, it is another 5-star review. This one is short and sweet:
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Great!, August 14, 2009
By K. Baldwin (Griffin, Georgia)
"Very informative with the best form of information...Purely straight forward. I love the in depth details that Angel gives to describe each piercing."

Nice Little Quickie

"Elayne!, I got the book this morning!, I've been reading it and it's AWESOME!!! congratulations on such a great job!
