I have a page here where I refer to other piercers. And I just got a message from a piercee who used one of those referrals and is thrilled with his piercing experience and the work that he had done.
Kudos to Monique Escamilla of Electric Ladyland Tattoo and Piercing in New Orleans, LA. I'm discussing a possible guest piercing trip there toward the end of October or beginning of November. Of course if I set dates, I'll make the announcement here on my site.
This is the message I received:

Lenny Kravitz has more than just one piercing. But a particular and very special ring came before the public eye during a wardrobe malfunction when his leather trousers ripped open as he jammed on his guitar during a concert in Stockholm, Sweden on August 3, 2015. The pubic piercing I did on Lenny's private parts many years ago became public.
The concertgoers in his audience, along with a huge quantity of lookie-loos all across the Internet gawked and talked. I guess they call such areas "private parts" for a reason, but celebrities are not afforded the same courtesy as the rest of us mortals. He had been quite public about being into piercing and had previously been professionally photographed showing off his nipple and genital piercings. But this exposure brought a whole new level of scrutiny and gossip.
Lenny was not only a repeat client, but also a good friend. We met initially at Gauntlet in Los Angeles (circa 1991) when he came in to get a nostril piercing to match the one he already wore on the other side. I pierced it for him then, and some months later I also pierced a friend he brought to the studio. We later we became reacquainted after he bought a home in the French Quarter of New Orleans, where I had moved and opened my studio, Rings of Desire. He saw me in a restaurant and came over to my table.

Here is a GREAT review of The Piercing Bible that I found posted on the Barnes and Noble website. I always feel especially delighted to hear that my book was interesting to people who were not actually into body piercing:
The Piercing Bible is a fascinating book, even for people who have never considered piercing
