Elayne Angel


After 5 months of struggling with my nipple piercings and was ready to take them out and start over I found Elayne!! I realized how uneducated I was with piercings. It was amazing to talk to someone so extremely educated and wise, I now know exactly what to do to heal my piercings because everything I thought I was doing right, was wrong! She is absolutely amazing and has saved my piercings from future disaster.


After almost 3 months of a tremendously difficult time with my 7-year old daughter's lobe piercings, I finally found Elayne! She was like an instant friend and supporter. Her $10 consult fee is so reasonable and she really invested time and thought into our problem. She gave detailed advice with weblinks that I could easily click on for more information. She was highly responsive and very caring! Thank you, Elayne!! You were a huge help to us and we greatly appreciate it.


"The Piercing Bible" is well written, informative and approachable book that demystifies the world of piercing for anyone who wants to know more. Before you invest in a piercing of any nature, do yourself a favor and invest your time in reading this book instead of what you find from a google search!


I used to weigh 120 lbs when I got my navel pierced. About 7 years ago I was diagnosed with hypoactive thyroidism. Within the first year I gained 70 lbs. At my largest I was 239. 2 years of struggling I'm down to 210, however my navel hole is now larger than the piercing and during the time of the quick weight gain a bruised (purplish/blueish) appeared from the top of navel on up. It's about the size of a nickel. Do u happen to have any suggestions as to get rid of the discoloration (it really stands out)? And should I get another piercing further back into the navel (I've had the piercing for about 20 years now) or just buy a larger ring? I thank you so much for your time...Tena

Hi Tena,

I can't offer much personalized advice without doing a proper consultation, which would include seeing photos of the area. You can sign up for a consult with me by selecting the "Piercing Problem Consultation" link from the "Consultations" navigation link at the top of the page.

As far as reducing the visibility of your scar, you may want to try one of the scar reduction products mentioned in my book, or ask your pharmacist for a suggestion. Elayne


Hi What a great website You have, everything collected in one site, alle you need to now about Piercings and aftercare. We will recommend people from Denmark to find inspiration on Your site. Best Wishes from in Denmark. Pornvipa.

Thanks for your posting in my guestbook. I’d need to do an online consultation to determine which piercings you’re anatomically suited for. I would be happy to evaluate your anatomy, even if you plan to go to another piercer. To sign up for a consultation, please visit this page:

In 2016, I’ll be working in L.A. in July, and in Philadelphia in September, but I haven’t set the exact dates for either trip yet. I will be announcing the details at the end of March. I may also be working in New Orleans toward the end of October or beginning of November.

If you haven't already and would like to be notified when I make travel plans, please sign up for my newsletter by typing your email address into the box at the top of the right column on any page of my sieverte: It is an "opt-in" list, so I can't add you myself.

Please visit this page for more detailed information about booking an appointment with me:

If you don’t want to wait for me, or won’t be able to make it to one of the locations where I’ll be piercing, you can go here for my piercer referrals:


I am 68 years old and want to have a VCH piercing if anatomically able. I live in a suburb of Cleveland OH. I am not having any luck finding a reputable piercer. Can you help?


Hi Susan,

Thanks for your message. Though the form on the CONTACT page is a better forum for questions.

To sign up for an anatomy consultation so I can check your suitability, please visit this page:

All of my piercer referrals are posted on this page of my website: 

If I haven't personally worked with or trained any piercers in your area, you can check the website for a member of the Association of Professional Piercers who is local to you:

The APP is a non-profit international organization dedicated to disseminating vital health and safety information about piercing to piercers, piercees, medical professionals, legislators, and the general public. The piercers are not "certified" by the association, however. While some of the piercers on the list may have taken my seminars at the annual APP conferences, I still wouldn't consider them to have been "trained by me," as those courses only last a few hours and aren't sufficient for providing a thorough education. Please meet the piercer and see if you develop a good rapport and if they inspire your confidence.

The best thing I can suggest to help you make good decisions about piercing is to become a more well-educated consumer. If you found my website informative, I think you'll be amazed by all of the valuable facts and practical advice in my book, The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing.  It contains loads of information about evaluating piercers and studios, piercing placements, appropriate body jewelry sizes, styles, and materials, aftercare, troubleshooting, and much, much more. My website contains just barely a taste of the information in my book!



My husband and I flew to LA to get pierced by Elayne on Dec. 6, 2015. We've been pierced before but wanted to get more piercings. Finding the right piercer isn't always easy but Elayne's credentials are top-shelf to say the least. It was an easy decision for us to fly out and meet with Elayne. I got two inner labia piercings plus a VCH while my husband got three frenum (ladder). In the process, Elayne noticed that a previous inner labia piercing thought to be closed was actually still open and ready for business. The piercings themselves went off without a hitch and with minimal pain. By far one of the most pain-free piercing sessions we've ever had because of Elayne's swiftness and overall technique. This is even more evident by how fast we're healing! Her post-piercing care advice is invaluable and the Emu oil really does make a difference. I am now almost 100% healed and my husband is half way there himself (his piercings typically have a longer healing time so it's normal that I'm healed before he is). We're so pleased! And we can't imagine doing this again with anyone other than Elayne.

After my husband and I was reading your website and information. We were very impressed, we live in the Kansas City area. We went to Supernatural Body Piercing, we spoke with Clay. He was very knowledgeable and polite, after talking with him for about 30 minutes we decided to go ahead. I had a vertical hood piercing, he was Awesome!! Thank you

I've encountered a mishap with my nipple piercing (done by a local piercer) and though unfortunate that I eventually lost it to migration/rejection, I was able to receive amazing professional advice from Elayne, whose intentions were meant to save the piercing.

Although I may have seeked her advice a tad bit too late, she indicated that the nipple was pierced too superficially so probably it was inevitable that it would migrate - and although we did not speak face to face (only through emails), she conveyed warm, nurturing and comforting words of wisdom and advice very steadfastly!

Elayne, your kind, caring and trustworthy demeanour has put me at ease with deciding to get pierced by you. I look forward to having my other nipple pierced even if I have to travel overseas to do so!

Elayne lives up to her name, as she truly is an angel and a blessing. I had the immense pleasure of receiving a triangle peircing by her when she was in Philly in November...I've wanted this piercing for nearly a decade but was always too cautious to subject myself to putting it in the wrong hands. I got caught up in life and my piercing desires were put on the back burner until this past summer, when in leu of my 30th birthday I decided I wanted to get on the ball with acquiring the piercings I've wanted. I found out about Elayne, and just knew if there was anyone I could trust to receive a triangle piercing from, it would be her. I was beyond appreciative that she was able to squeeze me in for an appointment for her Philly visit, and was pleasantly surprised that she was so quick and punctual in replying to my email inquiries. She admitted that she receives 50-100 emails blows my mind that she not only is so responsive to all these messages, but she isn't flippant in her responses either; even through email she conveys caring, warmth, wisdom, and professionalism.

When the big day arrived, I felt rather calm and collected....I felt confident not only in my conviction of wanting the piercing, but in the person who would be giving it to me [Elayne], and I believe that is such an important mindset to be able to have when obtaining such a delicate piercing. The fan girl in me was humming with excitement at meeting Elayne, but I kept her under wraps in order to keep calm, lol. I did feel slightly nervous in anticipation of the pain, but didn't let myself focus on those fears, and Elayne kept me further at ease by her warm nature. She's incredibly hypnotizing...she commands your attention but in an understated way; through her warmth and authenticity, your attention naturally gravitates to her. She kept me informed every step of the way as to what she was doing, and explained every step in detail. All of this helped me cultivate and keep my sense of calm and relaxation. When the needle pierced my skin, I was exuberant...I didn't feel a darned thing! I was expecting it to be jolting like my VCH atleast, and possibly close to intensity in pain as my nipples were, but I was exceedingly lucky as I didn't feel any inkling of pain at all. And just like that, I had my most beloved piercing, with perfect placement and jewelry, performed perfectly by the Goddess of a piercer, Elayne Angel. Even when I ran into an issue a month into healing (I started to develop some hypertrophic scarring), Elayne was quick to offer her opinion and treatment advice, which proved to be invaluable. I'm now two months into healing my piercing and it is coming along swimmingly (with the scarring gone!). I will forever remember this experience as one of the highlights of my life, for which I will forever be grateful for <3.


I am a 43 year old mother of two, and although in my late 20s Inwas considering some genital piercing, I never had them done. I decided it was long overdue so after doing a lot of research, including buying and reading Elaynes book cover to cover, I knew she was the right piercer for me.

I flew three hours but it was absolutely worth it! had a wonderful experience with Elayne. You will too!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Elayne! I visited with you once again in Philly at Infinite Body Piercing on 11/10/2015 for my coveted “Triangle” Piercing. 1st Let me say that this was an intense piercing – but now I understand why. I am almost 3-weeks out in the healing process and I am already so in love with this formerly elusive piercing! I’ve been able to feel & experience things after this piercing that I have never been able to feel - prior to this piercing, and the sensations are only intensifying as the healing process progresses! As you know Elayne - I am in my early 50’s so I know that nothing prior to this piercing (even my VCH) even comes close to the amount of gratification I have felt with the “Triangle”. Your professionalism, skill, knowledge, compassion & dedication to your craft makes everyone who is pierced by you walk out of the shop confident well informed and better education about their choice to be pierced by you! Please Keep Doing what You Do!!! I will be stalking your calendar for your next trip to PA. Thank You again.

James Cates

I am a body piercer in Raleigh, NC at Savage Tattoos. I read your bible and it really taught me to pierce with my bosses expertize as well. I still will not perform a cheek piercing because of your story. Any way my question is this. Where do you stand on performing infants ears? I believe they should wait until the child wants to have it done but some parents say its their decision and I would have to disagree. I'm a veteran so I believe in we are a free society to make our own decisions when we are ready to. Its why we take our oathe. To defend freedom at all costs. Anyway not trying to start a debate I would just like to hear your opinion. I do hold it in high regards and I always tell people to research their piercing in your book. Keep up the good work! Thank you for your time as well.

Hi James,

Thanks for your positive comments! I'm happy to hear that you learned so much from my book. You definitely have the right to decline to pierce infants and children. I cover this topic on page 251 in The Piercing Bible. Here's an excerpt from that section:

I will perform piercings only on individuals who specifically consent to the act and agree to comply with maintenance procedures during healing. Obviously, this includes declining to pierce babies or toddlers who are too young to grasp the situation—and all animals, of course. I will pierce the earlobes of a child who is old enough to knowingly make the request for it. He or she must also comprehend the need to keep dirty fingers away during healing and promise to abide by my instructions, usually with a parent’s help. Many of my colleagues share my standards, though some are more accommodating, and others even stricter.

Robert & Teresa

We have done much research for Teresa's genital piercing. Had no idea there were 3 ways (VCH, HCH or triangle) until finding this great website. We did the email consultation and got some good incite and a referral of someone Elayne knows well in our area. We now feel more confident we know the right questions to ask and think we well be able to understand the answers we get but if not we know Elayne will be there to help. Thank you so much and keep up the good work.


I was pierced by Elayne on November 12, 2015 at 7:30 PM at Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia. I got a Prince Albert and a Guiche. I had a very positive experience. There is no way I would have had anyone else pierce me down there! Elayne is not only a master piercer, but she is very professional, very friendly, very patient, and very lovable. At no time did I feel uncomfortable during the procedure. I am anxious by nature, so she continued to assure me that I would be okay. Now I have two beautiful piercings. Thank you so much.

It was not as bad as I thought it would be. To me both piercings were “easy to medium” as described in The Piercing Bible on page 32. I have had both nipples, both earlobes, and my tongue pierced in the past. I did not feel the earlobes or tongue being pierced at all. The nipples were the most painful piercings I got. The needle stung at the entrance and exit and I felt a lot of pressure as the needle went through. The Guiche only stung for a split-second as Elayne pushed the needle swiftly through my flesh. The PA hardly stung at all. The only thing I really felt was the receiving tube, which was more “annoying” than anything else.

I always wanted to get a PA, but it has always been a challenging decision mentally. I would start worrying about everything that can go wrong with it. What made the decision easier was buying and reading The Piercing Bible, buying and watching Elayne's videos performing PA piercings, and having Elayne pierce me. The bleeding was not too bad. I have been wearing Depend diapers, and have not had any leaks. I did start taking a Vitamin K supplement approximately three weeks prior to my appointment, and I will probably continue taking the supplement for one more week. I got the piercing two days ago and I am hardly bleeding any more. Urinating did not sting at all for me, but I have been urinating under water. I place my penis inside a cup full of water over the bathtub. I am mostly talking about the PA because it was the piercing I was worried about, but now I know that there was nothing to worry about.

I traveled approximately six hundred miles to get pierced by Elayne, and I would definitely do it again if I desire to be pierced again in the future.

Elayne, thank you again so much for two beautiful piercings and for making me feel so welcome and loved. You are truly an Angel!

Visited Elayne Angel yesterday in Philly for my much desired Triangle Piercing! This is not my 1st visit with Elayne and it will not be my last. If you desire a Genital Piercing, First do your research, then book an appointment with Elayne. Don't trust that special area to just anyone!!! She really is as friendly, comforting & professional as she seems.


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

Brittany Bleu

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.

Alessia Modonutti

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
