I recently returned home following a wonderful trip to Philadelphia. I pierced for 6 days at Infinite Body Piercing. That was my longest piercing trip to date. But last time demand was so high, I was unable to set appointments for everyone who was interested, so I decided to work a few extra days.
Over those 6 days I did 118 piercings on 87 clients! They came from 12 different states (as far away as Arizona and Texas!) specifically to be pierced by me. I also had some clients come down from Ontario, Canada. What an honor that people trust me so much that they are willing to travel such distances to be pierced by me!
As usual, most of my clients came in for genital piercings. I did 55 vertical clitoral hood (VCH) piercings, and 24 triangle piercings, among others. I also did a few apadravyas, scrotum piercings, frenum piercings, and Prince Albert piercings for the guys. Additionally, I did a few nostril piercings, eyebrow piercings, and also a navel piercing, a tongue piercing, and a philtrum (upper lip center) piercing.
While I was there I got to enjoy some Thai and Indian food (two of my favorite cuisines that I can't get at home). An extra special treat was visiting an Ethiopian restaurant, as I love that food, and definitely cannot get any of that in Mexico where I live!
On my day off, I visited the Eastern State Penitentiary, which was really fascinating.

I received a message from a piercer seeking advice about male genital piercings:
A client came in a few days ago and asked me if it was possible to do a vertical frenum ladder instead of a traditional one. I wasn't too sure so I told him I would research and find out for sure before I would attempt it. I know this is one thing you are very well known for and your answer would be the one I would go by. Also if any of the healing or after care is any different than a traditional frenum ladder or other possible complications please let me know all you can. Thank you so much!!
One of the important considerations is whether the tissue is pliable in the area he'd like to have pierced. You may want to start with just one piercing, rather than a ladder, to see how he heals. Also, the success of this would depend, to some extent, on his size differential between flaccid and erect states. On frenums that go in the usual direction, they can rest somewhat bunched up and close together without it causing any trauma. Then, when the piercee is erect, there is more space between the jewelry.

Today I was asked a piercing-related question that I didn't know the answer to:
My partner and I both have a PA, frenum ladder, and scrotum ladders. Our piercings are now at a stage were we have resumed a lot of our activities but when we were getting these piercings we did not think to ask this. Is it safe with these piercings for electric play or is the jewelry to much of a conductor? Any info you can give me on this would be appreciated. Thanks, TonyMy reply: Thanks for your email. To be honest, I'm really not sure. I think it might be best to contact the manufacturer or vendor of any toys or equipment you plan to use to get their recommendations. My guess would be that it shouldn't be a problem since the piercing (and the jewelry in it) has an entry and an exit. So, perhaps electricity might conduct through the jewelry, but not be sent deeper into the body? But I'm guessing here. Please let me know whatever you find out so the next time this question comes up, I'll have a more informed answer. If your supplier knows much about this and has any questions I might be able to answer (about body jewelry, for instance), feel free to put them in touch with me. Good luck and enjoy, Elayne
