Part of my volunteer work for the Association of Professional Piercers involves updating the website. I've been trying for days to figure out how to post the code to make it easy to share our banners, but I'm having a hard time with it. So I'm testing it out here. Does the banner work?

I just found another wonderful review of The Piercing Bible on this blog:
Thank the powers that be for Elayne Angel! Her book, The Piercing Bible, is a must-read for anyone considering this art form as a career, anyone thinking of getting pierced, anyone who is already pierced and everyone in-between. Elayne leaves no stone unturned in this thoroughly researched guide to safe body piercing. She delves into the history of piercing and the effect this has had, and will likely have, on many generations, before exploring it in its current form as well as its future possibilities. From deciding what to pierce, to finding an accomplished and conscientious piercer; from hygiene issues to piercing trouble-shooting, Elayne has touched on it all. Being relatively new to the art, I found myself starved for solid, trustworthy information and, with decades of experience under her belt, Elayne shares a wealth of knowledge, dispels many misconceptions and offers sound advice from the effects your new piercing could have on society’s perceptions of you to lifestyle changes that might be necessary if you want to live in harmony with your piercing. The book also discusses different jewellery styles and sizes, equipment used during the different procedures, stretching of piercings, retiring of piercings, problems that may arise, and special situations such as breastfeeding and sex that may be compromised, or enhanced, by the piercing. The industry has waited a long time for this book and, after reading it, you might be able to tell your doctor a thing or two about infection control, blood-borne pathogens and cross-contamination.

I had made a referral to a piercer and this is feedback from the gal who got pierced.
Hi Angel, I can't thank you enough for your help finding Clay at Infinite!! I went and had it done Saturday, he was really fantastic. He performed the VCH on me, it went very well, no problem at all. The placement looks just where it should be! You were so right he is a very cool and funny guy. I actually took a friend with me and she was thinking about getting the VCH but after Clay took a look at her, he told her she was perfect for the Triangle, and so she had him do it. It went perfectly, no problem for her either! You have helped me so much finding the right piercer, I truly thank you for all of your efforts. You know without your website I would have never been able to gather all the information I needed to know about these types of piercings, I would have stopped thinking about it years ago. So you have helped me on all levels. I hope you are doing well and that the book is coming along just fine, it will help so many people like me. Take Care Angel, K.
