body piercing book
July 23rd, 2009
Signed copies of The Piercing Bible are now available in my old stomping grounds: New Orleans. You can pick one up at NOLA Tattoo at 8120 Hampson Street; Uptown New Orleans near the Riverbend. Call them at (504) 524-6147 if you have questions. If you're in the market for a piercing, I highly recommend Pat Roig. He apprenticed under me and pierced at my French Quarter specialty studio, Rings of Desire, (closed following hurricane Katrina) for over 10 years. He's an excellent, highly experienced piercer, and a heck of a nice guy, too. If you're looking to get tattooed, I highlty suggest NOLA Tattoo's own Walt Clark. He is extremely talented and also a super greaty guy. He inked the flowers that cover my hands--a miniature version of the floral vines that cover my arms.

How did you find this website?
I'm so excited to see a book like this being published. I was really impressed by how neutral it remained without leaving things out. Its really hard to write on this subject because so much of piercing is personal preference, but you did a fantastic job! xo- Cj
Cj makes a good point there, because primarily the book does share my opinions (due to a short supply of "substantive research studies, statistical analyses, and other definitive resource materials related to body piercing" as it says in The Piercing Bible. I feel proud to have expressed them while still seeming "neutral"--that's tricky to be sure! It is great to hear that.

I got a lovely message in my guestbook on The Piercing Bible website:
How did you find this website?
I searched for Elayne after reading The Piercing Bible twice already!

It is my authority on body piercing and I read your book once from cover to cover, and then read it again with a hi-lighter in hand! My girl, Crista, and I are body piercing enthusiasts and love your style and attitude. You are a beautiful inside and out and we hold a lot of respect for you as a person and professional! Love, Jordan and Crista

Last week I heard from a piercer in Serbia who had received a copy of The Piercing Bible, and I'd posted on my Facebook page that I'd seen it for sale in New Zealand. Then today I received this from the Administrator for the Association of Professional Piercers. She's the person filling my orders from the APP website (where you can get an autographed copy, and 25% of the proceeds go to the organization, which is a worthy cause). How cool!
"The APP just sold a copy to a gentleman in South Africa and a woman in the Netherlands tracked down a place she could get it there...you are world wide now!"

Book Review: The Piercing Bible | Tribalectic. by John Lopez I've been most nervous about the reviews of The Piercing Bible that are done by piercers. We tend to be opinionated individuals, and we don't always see eye to eye. So when I saw that piercer John Lopez had reviewed my book, I was a little nervous to see what he had to say. Turns out that he has plenty of positive perspectives on The Piercing Bible!
