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.

I had my conch and vertical eyebrow pierced by Elayne at infinite body piercing in Philadelphia. I felt totally at ease and I love my piercings!!! It's only been day too but i have no pain or swelling. Thanks so much!!!

I had already done a lot of looking around to know what piercings I wanted when I had stumbled upon your book. I really wish I had found your book earlier because it would have saved me so much time and effort. Everything you need to know even things you did not think you needed to know is in the book. You did such an amazing job, thank you.

Jus bought your ingauge app for the iPhone. It is very handy and will come in handy when explaining sizes to clientele. Thank you again for ya help

i waited for two years to have the opportunity to be pierced by Elayne. . . and it was totally worth it. She is more professional about aseptic technique and more intuitively knowledgeable about the female anatomy than some nurses and doctors i have worked with. i love my piercing!! it healed beautifully and has never once given me a second of trouble. i full recommend Elayne, the professional piercers associated with the APA, and establishments that follow her suggestions for asepsis and cleanliness. thanks for bringing the art of piercing into the modern age!

I'm thrilled to hear how happy you are with your piercing and I appreciate the positive feedback! I wanted to make a minor quick clarification that the piercers' organization is the Association of Professional Piercers (APP, rather than APA).

I very much enjoyed your site.I wish you all the best in sales in you business venture.

Hello Elayne! Yet more amazingly healed piercings from you! I saw you in Dallas in September 2012. You performed piercings on both nipples to go with the VCH I got from you a year before in Oklahoma City. I wanted to let you know the piercings are doing fabulous, they look awesome and I can already feel how amazing they feel. The VCH with nipple piercings looks to be my perfect trifecta!! Thank you again for doing what you do - you ARE undoubtedly THE BEST!

Elayne! I LOVE this website! After months & months of reading about different genital piercings, no other place has given me such detailed information. From what I have been reading, you know EVERYTHING about genital piercings & I wanted to wait until you came to Detroit to get a piercing but In July I just couldn't wait any longer and went to see a piercer. I live in Shelby Township, MI & I was so excited to see that you referred Tiffany Diamond from Lady Luck located in Waterford, MI. I went to see Tiffany just to ask about the triangle piercing and maybe gain a little more knowledge, & ended up getting the piercing that same day! Tiffany was very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable. I definately would recommend her to somebody interested in getting a genital piercing. The piercing did not hurt as bad as I thought it would..... The anticipation building up was worse than the actual piercing itself lol Thank you so much!

Hi Elayne,thank you for sharing your incredible knowledge with us.I have read your book like 50 times.
November 6, 2012 - 2:19pm
I want to give you a great big hug and thank you for my VCH piercing! I traveled to Dallas because I wasn't gonna let just anyone perform this task and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I, unlike most, did not purchase your book until we met in Dallas (I did do my homework though). You really did make me feel comfortable and thoroughly informed of what to expect. The actual piercing was maybe a 2 second "what was that" moment and absolutely no pain afterward. I followed your advice and healing was quick. Anyone who is thinking about getting a piercing/body modification should definitely read Elayne's book. Elayne's words will provide you with a wealth of information. And for any of you who feel you may have waited too long, please note that I didn't start getting pierced until my late 40's, and now at 50 I have a VCH piercing by Elayne!! Life is good!
November 5, 2012 - 10:06pm
I have read The Piercing Bible at least 10 times! It is incredibly informative and well-written, and it has VERY important information for anyone interested in piercings/body modification. You can tell Elayne has so much amazing experience, and for her to share that is such a wonderful thing. I cannot say enough good things about this book, reading it has even encouraged me to get a VCH piercing to help me with confidence issues. I cannot wait to have it done (hopefully by Elayne herself), and I cannot thank her enough!

Hi Elayne, Thank you for creating this forum and sharing your expertise. I am a 31 year old woman with vulvodynia (VVS for anyone familiar). Today I received a VCH piercing from Bob Jones at Insight in Chicago (from piercer referrals). Bob was incredibly personable and professional. His demeanor instilled confidence in me. Tonight I am feeling no pain....only a slight pinch during and mild discomfort an hour or 2 after. I am excited for the possibilities this piercing may bring me including a renewed love for my "lady parts" and a reawakening of femininity and sexuality that have been diminished since my diagnosis. Thank you again for sharing this with others!

I had my vch piercing done by Byriah Dailey (from referrals page) I am so glad i finally did it! It didnt hurt as much as I thought it would..It was just a quick pinch, the pain was gone by the time he put the jewelry in.I was a bit unsure on how i felt about having a male piercer but He was extremely professional..made me feel very comfortable the whole time. If you live in Houston i would highly suggest going to him!

I am just beginning my Piercing career. I have asked Santa Claus for the Piercing Bible. I live in NY and I do Ear Eye Brow and Nose piercings. I'm moving to VA and hope to get an internship with a piercer there... What I have read that you have written is amazing. I can't wait to start learning from your book and the piercer I will be working with... You're amazing!
October 7, 2012 - 9:37pm
I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I had my triangle pierced by you in Dallas last week and I'm in love with it already. Your professionalism and incredible knowledge base really put me at ease before, during, and after the piercing. I'm beyond glad that i did my research and that you were piercing near me. I'm following the cleaning schedule and I'm not having any issues so far. Thank you so much!
October 7, 2012 - 10:59am
Hello Elayne! I just wanted to thank you again for all of your knowledge and willingness to share that knowledge with others! I finally got my piercing yesterday... not the triangle that I had hoped for but a lovely VCH. I talked with Derek several times and had an appointment with him before your APP conference, unfortunately he was not feeling well the night before and had to cancel. I appreciated his honesty and care for his craft and respect for me by admitting that he was unable to work when he was not 100% focused! As it turned out, that delay opened a door for me... shortly thereafter Saint Sabrina's announce that Courtney Maxwell would be joining their staff here in MN (from St. Louis, MO). I was excited to have the opportunity to have a female piercer rather than a male... just for my own comfort. I talked to Derek about it and he was very gracious in keeping me in the loop to be able to get an appointment with her as soon as she was up and running at their shop. When I got there yesterday I was able to meet Derek in person (finally) and had a great consultation with Courtney. She let me know that my anatomy wasn't ideal for the triangle... that it would likely cause distortion and suggested other options. I was impressed with her knowledge and expertise. She was very thorough and made sure I was informed and comfortable with all of the decision making. I am so glad I waited and am extremely please with the outcome. I truly value the personable, and professional service I received. Thank you so much for setting me on the path that led me to where I am with this. I can't say enough how this whole process has helped me evolve and heal. I love my piercing!
most sincerely and with enormous gratitude salutations from... sare
