I received this message from a professional piercer whom I respect a great deal. He is a skilled and experienced practitioner.

I've booked piercing tours in two new cities! Click the images below for more details and to learn how to make an appointment. (Hint: I'll need to know your preferred date and approximate time of day to come in, and a seecond choice. Plus I need to know what you wanted to get pierced.)
Don't delay! I often book up weeks or sometimes even months in advance of the actual piercing dates. So it isn't too soon to let me know if you're interested in making an appointment. You can use the Contact page to get in touch with me.
Note that I specialize in nipple and genital piercings (exclusively).
If you have questions, just ask!

I received a message about a piercing issue that was a little different from most of the problems I get concerning Vertical Clitoral Hood (VCH) piercings or triangle piercings:

You probably wouldn't even believe how many messages I get on a daily basis from people who have questions and concerns about piercings and nowhere to find reliable and factual information. So, I have been offering "online consults" regarding anatomical suitability for body piercings, and for people who are experiencing piercing problems.
In order to faciliate this process, I've had new, easy-to-use forms created for this website.
For an anatomy consult, visit this page: http://www.piercingbible.com/anatomy-consultations
For a piercing problem consult, go to this one: http://www.piercingbible.com/piercing-problem-consultation
You simply fill out all of the fields and click the "Book a Consultation" button, which will bring you to PayPal, where you can pay the $10.00 fee using a credit card or your PayPal account. It doesn't get easier than that!
I do always say that if you feel your piercer is competent, it is best to visit them, as they can see you in person. However, my experience shows that many people do not have access to top-notch piercing services, and they end up needing expert help. And that's what I'm here for.

I received a message from a wheelchair user who is considering genital piercing:
Hi Elayne, I have Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) and I use a power wheelchair so I sit 16-18 hrs a day. I'm in my early 50's. My Dr is against tattoos let alone piercings, but I want both. I've just had several surgeries and I expect to have more surgery in four months. I want to know the risks of getting my clit pierced and whether it is a bad idea for me. I'm a currently single lesbian with a healthy sex life. I'm a disability rights advocate, and I usually find a way to do the things I want to do. But I like to know what I'm getting myself in for and whether it's possible. Any help you can give me will help.
Thanks for your message and your interest.
There are a few considerations as to whether genital piercing is appropriate in your circumstances.
One of the most important deciding factors is the configuration of your local anatomy. Have you read about the different genital piercing options?
Compared to the range of other female genital piercings, clitoris piercing is very rare:
Another is whether you have any issues with incontinence? That could potentially cause healing problems for a genital piercing.
If not, and you're anatomically suited to the piercing you desire, and you are able to provide consistent aftercare as explained here:

I received a message from a woman who was worried about getting a genital piercing from an inexperienced piercer:
I went to my piercer about getting a hch in addition to my vch. Unfortunately, I can't due to a vessel, but she said that she could do a triangle. I'm a little Concerned because I'm fairly small down there (she had to modify my vch because of it) and she's never done one before. She knows how and showed me where it would be placed and took her time showing and explaining how it would be done. Everything seemed about right with how you explained it, but once again she's never done it. I trust her, but I know the piercer should be experienced.. But how would she get experience if she doesn't get te chance? I just need your advice on this, is there anything I need to make sure of? The only thing is that we decided to use a ring instead of the curved barbell (because I absolutely abhor the standard jewelry for the triangle, it just looks like a septum piercing for my vagina... Which isn't what I'm going for)
If it were my vulva, especially if I were small built (meaning passing a needle through the wrong part could do debilitating damage), I most definitely would NOT let her do it. Even experienced piercers learn by networking and sharing with other piercers. She should have a colleague who is experienced at triangle piercings walk her through it on a few IDEAL clients first--not someone who is small built. That would be something only for a true expert to do, not a first-timer!

I performed a consultation for a woman who wanted to know if her anatomy was suitable for Horizontal Clitoral Hood (HCH) and Triangle Piercings.
I have a vertical clit hood piercing and I love it sooo much I want more! I have a good piercer that I really love but he's sooo far away. Thank you sooo much for doing consultations online! I really, really want to get a triangle. Or maybe a horizontal? I hope my pictures are good enough. I'm glad I'll have a better idea of what I can get before I go all the way out to see my piercer.
You don't really appear to have any space for an HCH piercing above your VCH, which is where it would normally go, so I don't think you're a candidate for that particular piercing. And, by the way, your VCH appears to be properly placed and the jewelry is a suitable fit.
