I have been research a vch piercing for awhile and came across her website, which is great and very informative. Unfortunately she was all booked up to her visit to philly, but she replied to my email with the quickness, which I appreciated and she gave me the answers to my questions and it felt so personable even three email. Hopefully I will get to meet the beautiful person on her next visit but in the meantime she did give referral to someone at the shop that she wld b visting. I say if u can wait or luck up and get pierced by her I would. I only can imagine what she is like in person cuz her website and her personal email def shows she knows her thing and take care of her customer and potiental customers. Which is hard to come by this day in age. Thank u so much

I am so glad I stumbled upon you and this book during my research following my interest in a genital piercing. I got a VCH from Kevin at HTC in Tempe, AZ and the experience was amazing. He was knowledgeable, professional, and extremely personable. He made the experience much less awkward than I expected it to be. I will definitey be going to him for my future piercing needs. Thank you so much for everything.

Hi Elayne, I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful website and the piercers referrals. I live in London and last week I went to see Julie at Cold Steel for a VCH. She is truly amazing and I am delighted with my new piercing. Thank you so much Alessia

Reached out to Elayne to complete an Apadravya from my existing Prince Albert. After emailing back and forth with Elayne I decided to get the Appy piercing along with a Pubic and a Lorum. Elayne's prompt and considerate responses to my emails put me at ease and demonstrated her great knowledge and professionalism. Additionally I bought a copy of Elayne's book and finished it a couple days before my appointment. I highly recommend anyone considering getting pierced, whether by Elayne or not to read her book. You will learn everything you need to know to have a great piercing experience. I thought my appointment day would never come!
My appointment with Elayne was simply awesome. She was just as warm and friendly in person as her correspondences. More so really cause in person she has such a nice smile. She patiently explained what would happen each step of the way and that I would have a beautiful new piercing when we were done. And she was right! Once we were in the piercing room her calmness and control put me at ease and settled my nerves. I asked every question that came to mind and she answered each one to my satisfaction. We had a really good time actually. I even managed a laugh a few times. Elanye paid special attention to placement of the piercings. She spent a lot of time marking and asked me what I thought. I gave my opinion - she responded and we would agree on just the right placement. She involved me in the discussion about the fit of the jewelry which was so important to me. Elanye worked around me with the sureness and skill level of an experienced professional. Her painstaking attention to sterile procedures was on full display - just like she outlines in her book. Seeing her expertise in action was so reassuring too. The actual piercings were over in an instant. Didn't hurt nearly as much as I had been fearing - more like a firm pinch - three of them. She also made sure I remembered to breathe afterward! After each piercing Elayne applied a cold compress and made sure I was ready before moving on to the next. Then we were done!
Elayne talked to me about aftercare and made sure I had a plan for a great healing. I can't say enough nice things about this experience. I shared a moment with Elayne and got exactly the piercings I wanted. I could not be happier with them. If you are considering a new piercing, I highly recommend you reach out to Elayne.
Thanks for the great experience Elayne! You are super!

I went to elayne for my vch piercing. I first did tons of research which lead me to this website. In April i booked my piercing for September. During the entire 5 months she stayed in touch with me (had qtip test issues lol) however she made sure everything was ok. Her personality alone made me less nervous along with her sense of humor. She was very thorough with her step by step of how the piercing would be. It was quick and painless (more shocking than painless). I would recommend her 1000x! You are the best and the day you gained a loyal customer but a niece too ms elayne. Thank you for your services and your warm personality!!

I found Elayne's site simply looking for information about nostril piercing placement...I had not had the best experience going in, as the piercer had difficulty getting the nostril screw to fit properly. It kept hanging out of the bottom of my nostril ( I am a teacher, and regardless, its no fun to walk around that way!) I went back twice within 2 weeks to have the jewelry tweaked and having the labret moved in and out while the piercer 'measured'....my poor nose was beaten up, and the experience resulted in me doubting his expertise. And, I still came away with wire hanging down out of my nose!....I was 'rescued' a few weeks later by another piercer, who put a shorter screw in for me ( so gently I did not even feel it done!) but still felt insecure about the entire process. I was excited to read Elayne's advice to others on her site, and ELATED that she does consultations for such a reasonable fee!....I emailed Elayne and she responded within hours, so thoughtfully and from her heart. I feel so much better having an aesthetic opinion from someone who obviously puts so much in to mastering her craft. Thank you again, Elayne...namaste.

Everything is just phenomenal over here on my end! 2 weeks ago I took a trip over to San Francisco where I flew out from Chicago to meet with Elayne Angel for an appointment at Cold Steel Tattoo and Piercing on the famous Haight Street. After following all of Elayne’s instructions, my new apadravya piercing has been healing as good as it gets. The look AND the feel of my piercing is awesome and I wouldn't ever consider second-guessing myself or going back in time to avoid having it done. Again, I thank Ms. Elayne Angel so very much for all of her help and continued support throughout the entire process. Her level of professionalism was absolutely tremendous and I can't say that loudly enough. It was truly an honor to receive my piercing from her and most definitely appreciate all that she has done. I love it! She performed such a wonderful job with amazing placement. Everything occurred perfectly as planned because her technique is so advanced. The sea salt water soaks and the emu oil from Desert Palms Emu Ranch are wonderful and do a terrific job-I am absolutely hooked on the Desert Palms Emu Ranch Oil and have been recommending the product to some of my family and friends since it has such a multitude of uses. From the bottom of my heart, once again, thank you Elayne. You are so remarkable at what you do for a living.

I received a triangle piercing from Elayne in SF 5 days ago. I was not nervous or anxious prior, due to Elayne's excellent communication before and during. This was my first piercing other than my ears, nose, and belly button, so I was totally new to the genital piercing experience. Elayne was the epitome of professional and her confidence did wonders in making me feel comfortable. I trusted her totally, and am so glad I did! I am still healing and have yet to enjoy the benefits of my piercing, but it is beautiful and most importantly, done properly. I cannot thank her enough for being the expert piercer that she truly is. I feel grateful to have been pierced by the one person I believe to be a master at her art. I am so happy. Thank you, Elayne!

I had a very great time getting to meet and get pierced by Elayne in SF last weekend! I got one of her own creations the Lorum and it's fantastic, I love it! Thank you very much for the great experience Elayne I can't wait to get another piercing from you! P.S if you could send a copy of the picture you took of my new piercing I would appreciate it, thanks once again. Phil

My piercing is beautiful and healing great! The Emu Oil is great stuff! I have been soaking 2x a day for 10 min when i can but once at a minimum. I have had no crusties or discharge that i can tell. It looks amazing!
I will concur with your descriptions that it changes sex and masturbation. The first time we tried a small vibe to it was like a bolt of electricity! YOWZA!! But it has definitely helped improve sensitivity during intercourse. YAY!!
Thank you again for a job well done and for being a fabulous piercer and helping this girl with her first body piercing!! Can you tell, i am thrilled!! :-D

I want to thank Elayne for a great experience with outer labia piercings. I'm quite middle-aged and I've only ever had my ears pierced before, so I was very nervous. Elayne was really great from our first email contact to the actual piercing and then consulting on aftercare. She returns emails promptly, is clear about what information she needs beforehand and what she can only tell in person, answers questions clearly, and doesn't over-promise.
She was very professional about the piercing in terms of timeliness and sterility, etc. but she was also warm and helpful about me being nervous. She waited between the two piercings for me to be ready for the second one, even though I knew she was on a tight schedule.
To me, the piercing did hurt quite a bit at the time, and I was glad that Elayne hadn't told me anything different, but the immediate pain subsided in a few minutes and any real discomfort was over by the next day. The piercings are healing beautifully and I really love the emu oil.
If I ever decide to have additional genital piercings, I would certainly go back to Elayne.

Hello, everyone! I just want to share the GREAT enjoyment I've experienced with my piercing since visiting Elayne in July. I wanted a VCH but it was determined I wasn't built for the piercing. However, Elayne suggested a labia piercing & angled it right next to my clitoris. & OH man is it wonderful!!! I read that labia piercing are largely aesthetic but thanks to Elayne's expert markings I am VERY pleased to say that mine's is more than just an ornamental piercing. In short, it feels marvelous!! As for the pain, it was brief & just a sting. I wanted to share this for all those women who may want to get pierced but have doubts-DO IT! & make sure it's by Elayne because she is the best!!

this site helped me answer my question about if I could get a nose stud and switch it out with a ring (the rings on the side of the nose) cause somebody had already answered it. I'm also considering getting a lip ring (ring on the side of the lip) but I don't know where I want to place it :(

I'm practically a regular alumni with Elayne now, having both a VCH and both nipples pierced. I just celebrated my first year VCH birthday, and my nipples (2nd time being pierced) will be a year in November.
To start, I'll say that Elayne was both highly professional and incredibly friendly and knowledgeable during the whole process. This includes early on, when I first contacted her with email questions about the VCH. She walked me thru the "Q-tip test" and responded to email thoughtfully and promptly. I made my appointment with her for her visit to Infinite Piercing in Philadelphia, and she was great - in person the same as she conveyed online. The piercing was a cinch, just a quick split second of pain, and that was it. She answered my several questions, leaving the whole process to be an excellent experience. AND, I love love love my VCH!
I then contacted her and we discussed my nipples being re-pierced. While some piercers may have just told me "sure no problem", Elayne said she's need to see them to be sure there were no issues with scar tissue, and once again took great care to ask me several questions as to the history of my issues with them. I made another appointment at Infinite, and once again, she was caring and thoughtful and did a wonderful job on both piercings.
One of the reasons I initially let my first nipple piercings close is that even after almost two years, they were always "cranky", the crusties that while normal were always uncomfortable. Having been introduced to emu oil from Elayne from my VCH, we talked about using it liberally with my nipples. Well, needless to say, the emu oil was and still is AMAZING. The healing seemed to go more quickly, and it prevents the crusties and relieves them if they appear.
So, once again a successful piercing and wonderful experience overall with Elayne's knowledge and artistry.
Thank you Elayne! I'll see you hopefully soon for my labia piercings!!

I was worried about my nipple piercing and airport security a few days ago, not anymore! Elayne provided me with heaps of helpful, professional information. Replying WAY faster than any other piercer I have contacted (literally replys in a space of a few hours), I actually felt like I was talking to a close friend over email, she's that friendly! Will definitely contact again if I have any further problems, Thank you so much Elayne! Will be looking into buying your book for further information.

I recently got my inner labia pierced by Elayne and it was THE BEST piercing experience ever. She is the definition of professional and well educated in her field. The piercing procedure was incredibly quick and the pain went away after 2 seconds. I could honestly say that this was the least painful piercing I ever got, which is why Im going back to get two more done by her in December! I was always insecure about my labia, but getting it pierced has improved my self esteem and now it is my favorite piercing. Also, thanks to Elayne, I am a lover of emu oil. I had mentioned to her I use coconut oil for everything: I eat it, feed it to my dogs, use it to shave, use it as hair treatment and hair growth, and apply it everyday during the healing process for a new piercing (has no negative effects, unless you're allergic). Emu oil and coconut oil have the same benefits and healing properties, but emu oil is just 10xs stronger. Due to the nasty weather change in San Diego, my eyes burn, itch, become puffy and red during the entire day (eyedrops would not work), I applied emu oil all over my eyes and within a few minutes my eyes cleared up COMPLETELY. All in all, GO TO ELAYNE FOR YOUR PIERCINGS. Her level of experience, skill, and professionalism will make your piercing experience memorable!

In 2012 I decided to transform my self-pierced Prince Albert into a Apadravya. Elayne did an amazing job--the piercing was quick, precise and relatively painless. I love having an Apadravya and had scheduled an appointment to get an Ampallang to create a Magic Cross (Iron Cross) piercing. I made a deposit for the piercing session and was contacted by Elayne to submit photos to assist with jewelry measurement. However, when I sent her the photos, it was obvious to her that the Ampallang would not be possible due to the angle of the Apadravya and the large gauge jewelry being worn in it. If we did proceed with the Ampallang, there would be a high chance that it would be difficult to heal and could possibly migrate. I decided to cancel my piercing and she issued a full refund, minus the $10 consultation fee. Although I was disappointed, I really respect Elayne's integrity and professionalism. She is a gifted master piercer and I've had two very positive interactions with her, although only one resulted in a piercing:
I highly recommend Elayne Angel if you are considering a below-the-neck piercing.I can't think of a more competent, experienced and ethical piercer on the planet!

I got a VCH by Elayne about 2 years ago in Long Beach, and it was easily the best experience I've ever had. Through my research I came across her website and her book. (Great book, by the way. I highly suggest reading it before getting your next piercing). I contacted her with a question and I was just astounded at what I received: nothing but pure professionalism, genuine kindness and understanding, and not to mention a surprisingly quick response.
Come the day of the piercing. She was amazing. Same professional, friendly, welcoming person I experienced via email. I was extremely nervous, but before I knew it she was done. It was an all around great experience from the prep time to the aftercare discussion. 2 years later, I absolutely love my piercing!
Due to past experiences I had a real disconnect from my sexuality and my body. The entire piercing experience from the questions to the cleaning have been a part of my healing process. I have to say that getting that piercing has really helped me get back in touch with myself. It was not an overnight fix: it started as just a physical benefit, but in the process of caring for the piercing and becoming associated with it I found myself caring and becoming associated with myself. I believe the piercing and my wonderful experience with my piercer are the major catalysts that have helped me learn to love my body again.
Thank you, Elayne!
