You probably wouldn't even believe how many messages I get on a daily basis from people who have questions and concerns about piercings and nowhere to find reliable and factual information. So, I have been offering "online consults" regarding anatomical suitability for body piercings, and for people who are experiencing piercing problems.
In order to faciliate this process, I've had new, easy-to-use forms created for this website.
For an anatomy consult, visit this page: http://www.piercingbible.com/anatomy-consultations
For a piercing problem consult, go to this one: http://www.piercingbible.com/piercing-problem-consultation
You simply fill out all of the fields and click the "Book a Consultation" button, which will bring you to PayPal, where you can pay the $10.00 fee using a credit card or your PayPal account. It doesn't get easier than that!
I do always say that if you feel your piercer is competent, it is best to visit them, as they can see you in person. However, my experience shows that many people do not have access to top-notch piercing services, and they end up needing expert help. And that's what I'm here for.

Hello! I came across your website (very informative!) and had a question. I am interested in getting a vertical hood piercing, but I am not sure if I had sufficient tissue for the piercing. I tried the cotton swab thing and although it seems like enough, I was still unsure. I would just feel strange going to a piercer, dropping drawers and them saying "sorry, no can do.". Kind of awkward. Any other ways I could make sure? CaseyHi Casey, You're welcome to send me a photo of you doing the q-tip test, and I'd be happy to do my best to tell you whether your anatomy appears pierceable. In a piercing studio it is a daily occurrence that individuals are not suited to a particular piercing placement they desire. There is nothing to feel awkward about at all! It isn't a personal matter: each human body is unique and must be evaluated on an individual basis for suitability. A consultation before piercing for this purpose is very common. A good piercer will make you feel comfortable. He or she can also let you know what other piercings may be suited to your build, if not the one you wanted. Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a skilled piercer in your area. Sincerely, Angel P.S. To see video of me performing a VCH and the way the anatomy looks go here.
