I just receieved this message:
I just wanted to drop you a note and say thanks for the VCH you did for me last Saturday in NOLA. It's been healing wonderfully and already feels so comfortable I'm having trouble keeping from playing with it. I can't wait for it to be fully healed so I can start experimenting with different jewelry.
I also loved your book and read it cover to cover. The technical information is wonderful but the personal stories really make the book. I'm trying to decide what my next hole will be since the book has filled my head with so many interesting possibilities.
Thanks so much for the positive feedback. I really appreciate it and I'm glad that you enjoyed my book!
I'm delighted to hear that you're healing so well.

I received a message from a woman who was concerned that her second VCH piercing was still not properly placed. Turns out, she was right.
I had been so excited about getting my VCH, I've read stories, looked at pictures, everything! There was a limited number of shops where I'm living at the moment, and going to a bigger city was out of the question! I called the only shop who has a piercer at the moment, talked to the guy, he has 14 years experience piercing, and he told me he has done 100's of hood piercings. And because of this I trusted him and was actually excited about going!
The only thing is, now that I'm home and really taking a good look at it, it looks like it was done wrong!Well I took your advice, thought long and hard about taking out my surface hood piercing, and did. I waited, and got it re-pierced. This time however, I had a bit of trouble with healing as it swollen for about a week straight and slightly red. Its absolutely fine now, and I love it.

I just got this great message from a satisfied customer:
Not sure if you remember me but you did my VCH in Texas. I flew down from NY on a business trip and when I heard you where there at the same time I could not pass on the opportunity to have you pierce me. The point of this email is to tell you that I LOVE my VCH you did and amazing job. I did as you instructed and it healed wonderfully. Thank you so much I really appreciate the work you did. I would go to you when ever you are around to get pierced by you. Again thank you. Have a great day.

I first received an email from this client in October of 2008. She was seeking a referral to a local piercer to get a horizontal clitoral hood piercing. But after speaking to me, she decided to wait until I visited California. I finally did her HCH piercing in the Spring of 20099, and now she wrote me again in April of 2010:
Just wanted to tell you that it has been almost a year now since I came to Long Beach to have my piercing done by you and I'm loving it. It healed with no problems, I'm getting ready to experiment with new jewelry now.
My main reason for this e-mail is to tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying my piercing and I thank youso much, I feel very lucky to have had you for my piercer.
You're an angel.
I'm so glad to hear that you had an uneventful healing period and that you're enjoying your piercing! I really appreciate you letting me know. It is much more common that people take the time to write a a letter when they have a complaint rather than a compliment, so thanks very much for taking the time to share your positive feedback. Enjoy!

I got an email today from another unfortunate woman who got a misplaced VCH piercing that was terribly painful to receive:
I got a vertical clitoral hood piercing in Fargo, ND and it does not even look like its in the right spot. I went back and had the piercer take a look at it and she said the top is in the right spot but the bottom is off a little. I researched and researched before doing this and thought that it is supposed to go up under the clitoral hood. It is off to the side not even by the clitoris itself.
I’ve read and talked to people who have had it done and everything says that the pain when having it done was like a pinch. This pain I had was excruciating…not once or twice but THREE times. My husband was with me and said she stopped in the middle of it and went to get a bigger tube to pierce with. In getting a second opinion from another place…the lady looked at it and says, “that’s not right, I am sorry honey”. When we called back to where I got it done at, she argued and said that it was done right…after she had said that the bottom was not right. We tried to call the manager who also started a piercing school there and they said she is out of town and they didn’t know when she would be back. I was looking so forward to this and it turned into a nightmare. Is there anything that I can do?
