I noticed that The Piercing Bible was mentioned in this woman's account of her VCH piercing. I was very glad to read that the piercing turned out well, especially because it had been performed by an apprentice. But I did want to use this moment to clarify that while my book provides a great deal of information, it is not a "how to pierce" book, and simply because a piercer shows that he has it, (or says he's read it) doesn't mean he's qualified to perform any piercings solely as a result of that exposure. Congratulations to both piercer and piercee--it was the piercer's third VCH piercing, and it sounds like he did an excellent job (congrats to his mentor as well!). It was also great to read her positive comments about the studio:
I must say I have been very impressed with how clean and professional The Piercing Lounge is, and I think they understand people are nervous about coming in and getting pierced. They are very friendly and put you at ease. The aftercare instructions are also given to you right after you are pierced, but they are also given to you on a sheet of paper which is good because it was hard to pay attention right after getting pierced.

Well, it was not my photo (this time), but a 3-page spread I wrote about erotic piercing, with photos of some other lovely pierced individuals. You can read a brief write up about it here on the ModBlog website. Run out and get a copy today! It talks about the Prince Albert, Frenum, and Dydoe for men, and explains the erotic possibilites for stimulation from certain iercings. It also goes into a little about VCH piercings as well.

Here's a review from Barnes & Noble.com:
Great book for beginners and professionals by jwhite0520Reader Rating: See Detailed Ratings November 20, 2009: I had ended up buying this book after reading about the princess diana piercing. I found it to be very informative and have read it from cover to cover.... It is very well written and helpful for piercees of all ages and experiences. I also highly recommend this book if you are uncertain or thinking of an unusual piercing... 5 stars!

I just received this message from a woman I pierced this weekend at Cold Steel in San Francisco:
Subject: Thanks again Just a small note to say thank you. I felt like a 12 year old meeting Taylor Swift. LOL I adore my new body art. Thanks so much for putting me back together. I really do think you are amazing. Obviously we have never truely met personally. But professionally what you stand for and what you created inspires me and gives me a path to follow. From one woman to another your accomplishments and hard work are appreciated. It was worth every mile to come see you.

A woman who is flying to San Francisco to be pierced by me (she lives in Oklahoma, I believe) sent me this lovely message:
I have booked my airline tickets. I will be flying in the day before (Dec. 3rd and will arrive at 9:40 am.) I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am to meet you and to have you do this for me. I, probably like every woman having this type of piercing, would have traveled anywhere possible to have the peace of mind in knowing that you are so skilled and knowledgeable in what you are doing. I am a Registered Nurse, based on your book and the many, many things I have read about you on the internet, have total respect for how you handle your profession. Having someone do this type of piercing is every bit as important as picking a skilled surgeon. I will see you on Dec. 4th at 2pm in San Francisco unless you need to make a change. Sincere thanks to you for taking so much time in evaluating and answering my many questions.--Lisa
She's planning to get a clitoris piercing (not her hood) and/or a triangle piercing. So it is definitely worth traveling to have them done right! I look forward to meeting her and piercing her!

If you want to watch how I perform piercings, you can see me doing them in graphic detail here: http://clips4sale.com/10557. There's also a great video of me examining different configurations of female anatomy and describing which piercings are possible and where exactly they chould be placed. They aren't meant as "how-to" videos, but they do show a lot about how I do what I do.

Here's an email I received from a woman who was experiencing a problem because the jewelry that was placed in her VCH piercing was too short:
Hi there, I've contacted my piercer too, but I'm looking for some guidance and hoping you can help. I had my VCH pierced a week ago. It was initially healing very nicely with no issues. However, when I had it pierced, I was told that my hood was very long and he probably could have used a longer barbell (I have a straight barbell in now). This morning when I was cleaning it in the shower, I noticed that it was uncomfortable and found out that the bottom ball on the barbell has retreated into the piercing hole. I tried to manually push it back through but it is stuck and very uncomfortable. What should I do? Will my piercer be able to remove the jewelry and hopefully put a longer barbell in? I'm worried that it's healing around the ball and will be very difficult to remove. Thank you for any help you can give, Amanda
Amanda, Go see your piercer immediately! You MUST have a longer bar put in ASAP! If you allow jewelry that is too small to remain in place then it is likely to end up embedded. As the ball sinks in, your tissue grows around it, and soon you'll need the assistance of a doctor to remove the embedded jewelry by making an incision or two near it! Wearing ill-fitting jewelry is dangerous, especially when a piercing is so new. A curved bar gives you the advantage of some extra space without adding extra length--I usually start VCH piercings with them. This excerpt from The Piercing Bible explains proper VCH placement and jewelry:
