5.0 out of 5 stars Very Thorough
By Paige (California) 
I love how this book includes information about tons of piercings, aftercare, piercing troubleshooting, and social issues/aspects of body piercings [plus more!]. Angel definitely hit all of the high points and hit them thoroughly. I've never seen a collection of such valuable information on body piercing in one place. If you're into body modification, this is a must-buy!

Great at Parties!

I received this message on Facebook:
"I had my copy of The Piercing Bible out at a party tonight (it's a great coffee table book) and got a lot of interest in it.  I'm almost finished reading it and surprised at how interesting it is (even for someone like me who has no piercings and intends none...)."
I have to admit, I never thought of it as a coffee table book! And, I wasn't certain whether anyone who truly had no personal attraction to piercings would find it interesting. Good stuff!

Apprentice Interrupted

Today I got an interesting email from an aspiring piercer:
My name is Jordan and I was an apprentice up until a few days ago. I got your book and started reading "How To Choose A Piercer" and the piercing and aftercare techniques and realized that the person that I was learning from was not a skilled piercer. He was recommending baby shampoo as his sole aftercare product! I looked up the ingredients and among fragrances and surfactants were other irritants that were both genotoxic and cytotoxic! So I wanted to thank you because in reading the book twice I increased my knowledge tenfold! My girlfriend and I literally read your book together in bed :) Also the other day I was on the Rings of Desire site and saw that you used to sell autographed posters? Where was I?!? haha :) I'd love an autographed picture or poster! Would Love to hear from you soon!
Hi Jordan, Thanks for your email. I'm so glad to hear that my book has proven to be helpful to you, and that you took the time to let me know about it. Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad piercers out there, and plenty of them are taking on apprentices to create yet more untrained, unskilled practitioners. My hope is that my book will help to elevate the whole industry. By creating educated consumers, it helps put those hacks out of business. I didn't imagine it was going to be the kind of book couples read in bed together!  That kind of feedback sure puts a big smile on my face. You can get an autographed poster by ordering one through LeRoi. I'll be at their studio in Manhattan June 26-28 having a book signing and doing piercings. I've had a box of posters shipped there, and I can sign one for you and have it shipped out.

I received a Facebook message from a piercer in Serbia. He has a copy of my book, all the way over there!
Thank you a lot that you accepted me for a friend. You made me very happy. It is my distinct honor to keep your new book The Piercing Bible in my hands of which I received today. I am the master pirser in Serbia, Novi Sad in the Studio of tattoo & Piercing colled Be Beauty. Can not wait to read your book and learn so much from it, because you were the person for which I started, and dealing with the piercing. I will send you a friend request of my studio profile BeBeauty TattooPiercing , and I would be very grateful if you would view my work related to piercing and told me honestly what you think. Thank you in advanced! Best regards, Nikola Puvaca
