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

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!

A woman who is flying to San Francisco to be pierced by me (she lives in Oklahoma, I believe) sent me this lovely message:
I have booked my airline tickets. I will be flying in the day before (Dec. 3rd and will arrive at 9:40 am.) I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to meet you and to have you do this for me. I, probably like every woman having this type of piercing, would have traveled anywhere possible to have the peace of mind in knowing that you are so skilled and knowledgeable in what you are doing. I am a Registered Nurse, based on your book and the many, many things I have read about you on the internet, have total respect for how you handle your profession. Having someone do this type of piercing is every bit as important as picking a skilled surgeon. I will see you on Dec. 4th at 2pm in San Francisco unless you need to make a change. Sincere thanks to you for taking so much time in evaluating and answering my many questions.--Lisa
She's planning to get a clitoris piercing (not her hood) and/or a triangle piercing. So it is definitely worth traveling to have them done right! I look forward to meeting her and piercing her!

I recently got a message from a Tribalectic Community friend:
I wanted you to know that when I was thinking of getting a frenum piercing, I visited your website. I was sitting on the fence about getting the piercing. I bought a couple of your genital piercing video clips to see what exactly I could expect if I decided to go through with it. You made the experience look relatively painless, professional, & quick. Those videos (and your expertise) calmed my nerves and help me decide to go ahead and get it done. I got my piercing and have no regrets (fact is, I'm thrilled with it), so a big thank-you and hug from me.
My response: HI there, Oh that GREAT! Thanks so much for the positive feedback. I'm glad that I was able to be helpful to reassure you and support your decision and to get pierced. I saw the photo and your piercer left room for a Prince Albert, if you ever decide you want to get one.... Who did your piercing? Sounds like it must have been a good experience. I'm so glad! Heal well and enjoy, Elayne

If you're not familiar with the vegetarian festival in Phuket, Thailand, you should check out the amazing photos here. People participating in the ritual go into deep trance states and endure incredible feats of piercing! Should you desire to learn more about this festival, the Association of Professional Piercers has a video on the subject. In fact, I'm the narrator! Check it out here. Here's some information about the video:

I found this review on Barnes & Noble.com
A Book Every Piercer And Piercing Enthusiast Should Have In Their Collection.
Posted 11/07/09: I thoroughly enjoyed reading "The Piercing Bible" and I constantly refer back to it whenever a question in my mind arises about anything regarding piercings as it is a great resource to me. My background as a Piercing Apprentice has taught me many things, but having this book has helped me to understand even more all the details that go into each type of piercing available as all subjects are well covered. This book is easy to read, follow and understand whether you are just starting to explore the world of Body Modification or have been exposed to it for years. It is complete with illustrations and detailed explanations of the types of piercings for all parts of the body for both Male and Female. Included with each piercing description is details of what to expect from a Piercer if you're going to be pierced, which is an excellent guide for anyone who might be confused or worried about what the proper procedures are. This is a book that you will find yourself referring to over and over again for answers to questions about any piercing you want to get or already have. Highly recommended!
