Elayne, I cannot explain to you how please I was with your prompt consultation. Your knowledge & expertise was just what I was looking for to address the placement issues that I was experiencing with my nose piercing. I am relieved to know that there was a solution. Also, thank you for providing me the useful information from the Association of Professional Piercers (APP). I am defenitely more informed about my decision to have my nose re-pierced and feel confident because I am more knowledgeable when working with my piercer.
Elayne, thanks so much! The pictures you sent me to show the area for the correct placement of my piercing were right on. I'm taking these with me to show my piercer.
Thanks So Much, Dawn

I wholeheartedly recommend Elayne Angel's book, The Piercing Bible, to anyone who is interested in the culture of body piercing. Elayne's infinite knowledge and experience provide a wealth of information for piercers and piercees alike. This book is a must-have in any library - it is easy to read and an excellent source of reference. A comprehensive and practical guide.

Hi! I just wanted to say that as a healthcare professional I admire your professionalism and skill. Your site displays an uncommon understanding of anatomy and medicine. Your clinical photos are of medical symposium quality. Most importantly it seems that you've helped a lot of women... Yours truly, Chris

Thanks for your interest. I'd be happy to pierce you! However, Los Angeles is the closest to you that I'll be working in the foreseeable future. I'll be piercing there in April. Details are available from the link in the "Upcoming Events" block in the right sidebar.
If you'd like to make an appointment, use the CONTACT navigation above to get in touch with me. I frequently have clients drive or fly in from other areas when I work.

I put that message in a translation program, and it came up with this: Perfectionistic Hello, Elayne! After the piercings healed, I think you are even more amazing than I thought before. Your work on both of Zhaba's nipple piercings looks to be perfect! Thank you again for doing what you do - you are undoubtedly the best!

Elayne, your book has seriously helped me with my piercing. I'm still learning more and more from reading your book every day, but both my clients and I have definitely seen improvements in my piercing abilities. Thank you so much, I sincerely recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in piercing or even being pierced.

I absolutely love your book, it has been incredibly helpful. It contains so much helpful information that I have learned more than I ever imagined. I also wanted to thank you for your recommendation of Alicia at Sol Tribe in Denver, CO. She was incredibly kind and helpful, and even worked with my fear of needles.

I want to say to thoes of you who want VCH piercing please do ur homework as I did. I found THE PIERCING BIBLE and Elayne's information the best out there. She will answer any questions you hv & in a timely manor. She is very kind & she KNOWS what she talking about. I was not going to let any joe smoe do it!!! I told her where im from & gave me her recommendations and they r certified. Elayne made me feel as tho ive known her for ever. That ment so much to me. I took her advice called made my appointment. I was treated so very kind & was told everything up front. I want to thank Evelyn for all of her help because what she tells you is right on information. TRX took very good care of me & my friend. I felt safe knowing Evelyn referred and stands by who she referred. I knew I was in great hands!!! I've now had my VCH 4wks & not one bit of trouble with my VCH. I must say I LOVE IT!!!! IM SO THANKFUL FOR EVELYN and her help. Rest asure ur in good hands. THANK YOU!!! XOXOX MEL

Thanks for your comment. So glad to hear that you are happy with the referral I made, and the piercing you got there.
Interestingly, my mother's name is "Evelyn" though mine is Elayne. But I know who you meant. : )

I live in the Southwestern United States and even though I could not travel to meet Elayne for my piercings. I did read her book, The Piercing Bible. If you are thinking about getting a piercing or just want more info on piercing then this is a must have book! Do not go to a piercer without the information that Elayne arms you with... She will give you all the facts and explain everything precisely and thoroughly. I really enjoyed reading this book and I have not read anything that was so helpful in my entire life. She is a wonderful Author! Thank you Elayne Angel for writing this FABULOUS Book!!!
December 14, 2012 - 5:35pm
I received a VCH today from Elayne!! It was better than I could have expected!! Yes i jumped when she pierced me but i also laughed at myself for jumping! It took me longer to get back dressed than the whole procedure!! I will follow her and the ladies at Virtual and Vice anywhere!! Thanks again for enhancing my world! I feel powerful!!

Thank You Elayne for my new Apadravya! I made an appointment to see Elayne in Philadelphia on the fourth of December for my Apadravya. I had not been able to find anyone locally who would do a below the waist piercing much less this paticular piercing. Elayne was absolutely fantastic. As much as I wanted to get this done there is still a level of apprehension and anxiety with such a piercing as you can imagine. Elayne completely dispelled that. She is quite personable. I think I could sit and talk to her for hours. What impressed me most is that she actually took the time to not only go over what was going to happen but what to expect after the piercing took place and the aftercare that I would have to perform. She didn't use some cookie cutter approach to my piercing but based it on both my paticular anatomy and preferance. The result is an amazing piercing! The actualy piercing was seconds and I would describe it as a pressure with a sharp sting at the end which is not at all intolerable. I have had no swelling or bruising with mimnimal bleeding. Elayne also reccommended the Emu oil as part of my aftercare. GET THE EMU OIL! I don't know how or why it works but I have had great success with it. Thank You Elayne for a wonderful piercing and piercing experience.

I had two unsuccessful VCH piercings done and was really bummed that I was having such difficulty wearing them comfortably. I had the first two piercings done by reputable, professional piercers, (one out of town, one in my hometown) so I felt that the problem had something to do with my anatomy or well, who knows what. I decided to consult with the expert, Elayne, and I am so glad that I did. She exchanged countless emails with me, evaluated my pictures, and gave me the advice to go back to my piercer and tell him exactly what my issues were. If he advised against piercing me again, then I should follow his advice. She knows and trust my piercer completely (as do I), and I felt very comfortable doing what she suggested. My piercer decided he should pierce me a bit lower, and use a barbell with slightly less of a curve. I'm happy to say that I have been wearing my new piercing for a little over a week now and I've had no discomfort whatsoever. I am so fortunate to have had consultations with two incredible piercing professionals, and I'm so grateful that Elayne took so much time to evaluate my situation. She is so well known and such an expert in her field, yet she gave so much credit to my piercer, for being an expert himself. That's awesome! Thank you Elayne, for caring about me and my piercing experience. You are an amazing professional, and a truly caring person. I hope you come to Albuquerque some day so that I can meet you in person. Thanjk you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you so much Elayne! I got my vch piercing by Elayne this past Saturday at Infinite in Philadelphia and I am so happy with it. It was a great experience. I was very nervous but Elayne was so professional, knowledgeable and warm and obviously loves what she does and takes it very seriously. It barely hurt at all, and it was only for about 3 seconds. I walked out in no discomfort at all and haven't had any since either. It seems to be almost healed already in fact, and its placed perfectly and looks great. I'm really happy I waited to have it done by Elayne and I recommend everyone else interested in the piercing to wait as well. If you take a look at the blog on here you will see that there are almost daily emails with women who got horribly botched piercings! The wait/travel is definitely worth it. Don't put this in the hands of just anyone. Thanks again and I'm already thinking about another one the next time you are in town

I recently got a VCH piercing by Elayne in Philadelphia. I cannot say enough good words about my experience!
I walked into the studio so so nervous. As Tamar Braxton would say I was a "hotmess.com". I remember thinking to myself why am I putting myself through such torture. Elayne was comforting, knowledgeable and so so pleasant. Although I was so nervous I couldn't speak I remember being at ease. She was so calm and it helped calm me down.
The piercing itself was so quick that I honestly didn't have time to register pain. It is such a mind game that you play with yourself.
I would not recommend anyone else but Elayne. She is the WOMAN to see.
Thank you Elayne for doing what you do!!

In order to appreciate how wonderful Elayne is, you have to know that I am 51 and had my first VCH (performed by a local piercer), when I was 50. That experience was horrible, painful and the bleeding afterwards was scary as hell. In order to get the bleeding to stop, my hubby struggled to take the jewelry out. After that experience, I emailed Elayne several times to seek her advice and guidance. She took the time to email me back with her professional advice and warm reassurance. After watching her perform several VCH piercings on her video clips, I booked her very first appointment when she was in Philly on 11/30. The moment I saw her, I knew I was in good hands and the worry over my first experience started to diminish. Infinity Piercing was immaculate and Elayne took her time to prepare me and make me feel comfortable. Having her pierce me was nothing more than a tiny little pinch and I was good to go! I felt so good afterwards that hubby and I went for lunch before getting back on the road to head home.
I love the way my piercing looks and feels !!
Elayne is worth the wait !!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Elayne! I have already sent you this by email but I wanted to share my experience with others as well.
"I wanted to say thank you again for the amazing job that you did on my VCH piercing yesterday. It's beautiful! I'm really happy I chose to travel out to Philly - I was really nervous but this was by far the most enjoyable piercing experience I have had. It doesn't even feel swollen or sore, and it's only been a day! I will definitely be travelling to see you for my next piercings. You are definitely worth travelling for! I've had so many botched piercings near my home (although, thankfully not in such an intimate area), it was great to walk in and feel confident that I would be walking out with a fresh new piercing that I will be able to enjoy long-term. A thousand "Thank You"s wouldn't even cover how completely satisfied I am with my new piercing and the whole experience surrounding it."
I do have to admit - I was terrified before I arrived at the studio. I drove in 8 hours from Montreal to meet Elayne - and am SO happy that I did. I arrived 30 minutes before my appointment and she helped me right away with picking out the jewellery that I wanted. Once we went in to the piercing room she explained everything that she was going to do and let me know all about caring for the piercing and different products that were available to help with that. I had asked a million questions by email before even booking an appointment, all of which she answered almost right away - she is an amazingly patient woman.
For those of you who are shy - so am I, and I was somehow comfortable on that table. It's pretty impressive how a woman wielding a needle can make you feel more comfortable than a doctor doing a simple check up. The piercing process was very quick and she was very gentle. This was great because only a two days later and I am feeling comfortable as ever!
Thank you TONS Elayne, I am SO happy with my beautiful new piercing - you will likely be hearing from me again for future endeavours!!!

Wow Elayne is just fantasic. I have a PA and was looking for my next genetical piercing. She was extremely paitent with my quesitons. I was emailing her almost daily with questions and she replied within the day - I don't know how she has the time. I travel frequently and she gave me advice on security and Piercings. She also advised the next genetical piearcing that would be the most comfortable and heal best on long flight. She recommended a piercer in Houston. I have to say that when I pulled up to the parlor I was a little afraid to go in, but once in side the guy was extremly professional and the piercing is great. If you are looking for a referral definitely use her referrals. I had a Lorum done this weekend and it's already healing nicely. From the piercing bible I learned that a maxipad keeps the piercing dry and restricts some painful movement - definitely worked. She also recommends using Emu Oil. I ordered this and it arrived yesterday (perfect timing. It is working well so far and is much easier than a saline soak.
If you need to know anything about a piercing or are just curious about general Questions - Elayne is the person to talk to.
