Piercer Referrals in California

I received this message through The Piercing Bible website

Hi Elayne,

First off I want to thank you for the wealth of information on your site and in The Piercing Bible. I have been researching female genital piercings for the last few months and have found a lot of conflicting and often just plain wrong information. Your site and book answered a lot of my questions and impressed upon me the importance of finding a piercer who knows what they're doing.

Secondly, I was wondering if you still evaluate peoples' photographs to see if they're suited to a particular piercing.  I would love a triangle piercing, but I'm not 100% sure if I can get one, obviously.  I intend to get a consultation once I find an experienced piercer, but if you're able to take a look at some photos and let me know if it would be a waste of time or not, it would help me out immensely.  If you're able to do this, I can send you some pictures.

Thanks for your time,

HI Jennifer,

Certainly. Just follow the instructions at the bottom of this page:

I'd be happy to take a look and let you know whether you appear to be suited to a triangle.

I was reading a public profile of a young man on an online dating site. He seems like a cool dude, studying computer science with a desire to be a professional piercer. I'm not actually looking for a date--I'm happily married. But I did notice that among his self-summary and favorite foods and music, he listed his favorite books, which included The Piercing Bible:

Books: demonata series and the pendragon series. Oh, and the piercing bible. WAY better than any other bible. It has FACTS.

Flying In For Piercing

A woman who is flying to San Francisco to be pierced by me (she lives in Oklahoma, I believe) sent me this lovely message:

I have booked my airline tickets. I will be flying in the day before (Dec. 3rd and will arrive at 9:40 am.) I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to meet you and to have you do this for me. I, probably like every woman having this type of piercing, would have traveled anywhere possible to have the peace of mind in knowing that you are so skilled and knowledgeable in what you are doing. I am a Registered Nurse, based on your book and the many, many things I have read about you on the internet, have total respect for how you handle your profession. Having someone do this type of piercing is every bit as important as picking a skilled surgeon. I will see you on Dec. 4th at 2pm in San Francisco unless you need to make a change. Sincere thanks to you for taking so much time in evaluating and answering my many questions.--Lisa

She's planning to get a clitoris piercing (not her hood) and/or a triangle piercing. So it is definitely worth traveling to have them done right! I look forward to meeting her and piercing her!

Debunking Piercing Myths

Here's another 5-star review from a professional piercer:
5.0 out of 5 stars
A must have,
By Eric Bedell (Long Island , NY) -
I have been a body piercer for 9 + years now and this book is a credit to the industry. It debunks all the common myths and urban legends good and bad about piercing. This book i recommend for not just experienced and novice piercers but also for customers as well i have pointed out and physically shown many of my customers various passages from this book.
