professional piercing

FACTS

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.

Happy Piercer/Customer

I just received this message from a woman I pierced this weekend at Cold Steel in San Francisco:

Subject: Thanks again Just a small note to say thank you. I felt like a 12 year old meeting Taylor Swift. LOL I adore my new body art. Thanks so much for putting me back together. I really do think you are amazing. Obviously we have never truely met personally. But professionally what you stand for and what you created inspires me and gives me a path to follow. From one woman to another your accomplishments and hard work are appreciated. It was worth every mile to come see you.

How cool! x

Positive Feedback

I received this message from a piercer:

"Elayne, I have been studying your book since we last chatted in the fall and it has definately helped improve my piercings and brought more people in for information on care. You have a great talent and I wish you well. Thanks again, Kelly Diamond"

It is so exciting and gratifying when I hear that my book is helping people to get better piercings or do them!

Supportive Parent

I got this email today from the parent of a girl who wants to be a piercer:

 

Dear Angel, My adult daughter Rachel is very keen on getting into the Piercing profession.  She has worked at a couple of places that provide tattoo services and piercing services.  The work has strengthened her resolve.  Recently she asked if I could see about getting your book for her – she really wanted it signed by you.  I know she would really be pleased if you addressed it to her and signed it. We live in near Vancouver Canada but have a mailing address in Lynden Washington. Would you mind addressing a book to “Rachel” and maybe wish her well?  She is a fan for sure and I do my best to support my daughter – I love her dearly. I would be happy to send you a cheque or whatever method of payment you prefer. Thank you for considering my request. Sincerely, Neil

This is my response: Hi Neil, Thanks for your email. How wonderful that you are such a supportive parent! I'd be happy to personalize the book for her, but I now live in Mexico and I don't stock books here or have any means to accept payment. The Piercing Bible is being sold by the Association of Professional Piercers (APP), and when you purchase from them, you do receive a book that I signed, and 25% of the proceeds go to the organization. In any case, the APP is an organization she should definitely know about. Here is the link where my book can be found: http://www.safepiercing.org/publications/the-piercing-bible/ They do ship internationally, so you can have it sent to whichever address you prefer. She may wish to sign up for my email list in the top right corner of this site.

Fan Mail

Here is another nice message I got on MySpace:
Angel- My name is Alyssa and I'm a piercer from Toledo, OH.  I first heard of you during my apprenticeship; my mentor insisted I read your articles to familiarize myself with commonly asked questions and your after-care instructions.  This might seem a bit weird and perhaps unorthodox, but you are truly an inspiration to me! I hope that after I'm in this business for as long as you are I could help and inspire someone the way you have for me! Alyssa- Visions to Reality Tattoo and Piercing Studio
