I was recently interviewed about body modification (for a school project) and I will share with you what I had to say on the subject:
Q: In your experience, how has body modification changed over the years since you started compared to now? Is it more complex and safe or is it going downhill for lack of better words?
A: Body piercing has undergone a truly explosive revolution since I became involved. After a long history among tribal peoples followed by years of obscurity at the fringes of Western society, body piercing has now achieved massive worldwide popularity in contemporary culture. For an amazing education about the development of the modern body piercing industry, read my former employer/mentor Jim Ward's revealing book, Running the Gauntlet.

If you would like to listen to a new interview with me, you can hear it here.
Me and my friends Dirk and Princess Zoe at The Fetish Show had a great time recording it recently. We talk about all sorts of piercings and more.
Be aware that it is fetish show, and not only about piercing. So if you're into piercing, but not otherwise open minded, then you might not appreciate the show.
If you have an open mind, then check it out!

I was interviewed for an article in Curve Magazine about piercing. They put it in the "Health Advice" column of their 20th Anniversary issue dated April 2010.
The article begins:
This year curve celebrates our 20th anniversary by looking back at the women who inspired us then. Twenty years ago, Elayne Angel was a master piercer at West Hollywood’s The Gauntlet, the first piercing specialty studio in the U.S. You may know her best as the woman who popularized the tongue piercing.

Well, that's a little harsh. But the winter weather there is also harsh, so I'm happy to be back in the Yucatan, where the weather is literally 50+ degrees warmer than it was on the East Coast. It was between the 20s and 40s there, and here it is a breezy, but toasty 97 degrees. Yum!
While in NY, I stopped into a cool clothing store (where I found a geat pair of black leather pants) and ran into a woman who I'd met previously in my own studio in New Orleans. She's a very interesting person named Joshua Suzanne, and she did a brief interview with me:

I was interviewed by a website called "Embracing My Journey" and I talk about what keeps me moving forward, offer advice to people who want to live in a world of their own creation, reveal who I'd like to be stranded on a deserted island with, tell who inspires me, and much more. Check it out here.
