Hi Al, Thanks for your posting, though this is not a forum for questions. I do offer online consultations if you wish to have personal attention. (http://www.piercingbible.com/piercing-problem-consultation)
There is a LOT to know about stretching to do it safely. I suggest you read my book so you will be well educated before embarking on any stretching. Done improperly, I've seen overzealous PA stretching result in accidental bifurcation of the glans, so please be careful!

I contacted Elayne for a consultation on a new nipple piercing as I had some concerns about its placement. She QUICKLY (within an hour!) and kindly reassured me that the placement was great, and that I had nothing to worry about! She kept my photos private (as I requested her to do) and she was friendly, warm and professional. If you're thinking about contacting Elayne for a consultation of any kind, don't hesitate. Peace of mind about something as special and intimate as a piercing is DEFINITELY worth the $10 consultation fee; even more so if there is something that needs attention from a professional.
Elayne is a master of her craft; you will be in good hands, virtually or physically.

I just wanted to say thank you for providing a list of the piercers in Arizona. I went to see Kevin at HTC Tempe for a triangle and princess Di and he was awesome! He took the time to really explain the process to me as well as the possibility that I may not be eligible, examine my anatomy to make sure everything was compatible and made sure I was 100% comfortable with the entire process, even asking me multiple times if anything was pulling or hurting - he went out of his way to cause as little pain as possible which was great.
He also scheduled a follow up since I am from Northern Arizona at a higher elevation to make sure the piercings were healing properly and the elevation didn't cause any kind of shifting or intense bleeding. I was so happy with the level of service, his happy attitude, and the way he put me at ease that I would definitely go back to see him as well as recommend him to anyone hoping to get female piercings in Arizona. I am happy to have found your recommendations, the last 3 genital piercings (Christina, VCH, and inner labia) I had done were done by random shops that while healed nicely and even Kevin said they were done well and were healed nicely - I am leery of putting my trust in a lot of piercers who may not have the right experience and I end up with something that might reject.

I Visited with Elayne At Infinite Body Piercing in Philadelphia, PA on 09/19/2016. I received my 1st set of Inner Labia Adornments and I am thrilled. I have visited with Elayne previously (my Triangle Piercing is my favorite & has changed my life!) and I can tell you that she is kind, knowledgeable, reassuring and incredibly professional. Her quality standards & attention to every detail you most likely will not find in a local shop. If you've ever though about a genital piercing - book an appointment with Elayne - I can tell you she's worth waiting for! You really do not want any mistakes down there!

I was fortunate to have received my first piercing, a PA, from Elayne recently. I was blown away with her professionalism and attention to detail. She was extremely accommodating and easy to work with.
My biggest concern before going in was the professionalism of my piercer and Elayne exceeded every one of my expectations. I really can't recommend her and her work highly enough. I wouldn't ever choose to be pierced by anyone else

I was lucky enough to have my nipples pierced by Elayne this past week. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! They were sore for the first day after the piercing, but not nearly as bad as I was expecting.
I was really nervous about the whole process (I had read horror stories from people who had their nipples done by less experienced piercers), but Elayne was so sweet and professional that she put my mind completely at ease. The actual piercing was so fast that I barely had a chance to realize it happened!
If you're debating whether or not it's worth the price and wait to be pierced by Elayne, it is. It's really as simple as that!

Thanks to Elayne brilliant reference list I was able to get my VCH piercing done by Kaspa while I was in New York. He was very professional , informative and made me feel comfortable. I had a great experience with him and the piercing looks great. I definitely recommend him and will go back to him for future piercings myself.

I want to thank Elayne for having a referral list. I am an admirer of your work and truly love body art!! I finally got the courage to get the VCH on Sept 5th. I've been wanting to do this for years. I had my VCH done by Michael Kaspa at Inked Republic in Bay Shore, NY. He is phenomenal!!! I was definitely a bunch of nerves when I got to the shop. Upon meeting him, I found him to be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I felt very comfortable asking him questions. He told me everything would be fine and he was so right. He explained the procedure prior to and even while he was checking to see if I could get the VCH. He also checked to see if I could get the Triangle ( which I am, yay me)... By the time it was time to get the piercing I was very calm and had a of confidence with him giving me the piercing. Split second of discomfort. Mike was awesome!!! Hopefully one day I will get have the honor and pleasure of meeting Elyane and get a piercing from her...

I was concerned about the placement of a new nipple piercing I had done a few days ago. Elayne responded to my need for a consult within a few hours, and took the time to put all my concerns at ease. We cooresponded through several emails and she made sure she had all of the information and photos she needed to reach an educated conclusion about how my piercing was placed. She alleviated all of my worries in a timely, professional, and friendly manner. Would recommend her to anyone!

i have been a body mod enthusiast for over 14 years now and am only 26 years young.
My experience with piercings I would call much better than most. I have studied and talked with many expert piercers from around the country. I only use the best jewellery, whether the piercings are healed or not. I've done my own PA, center-lip, tongue, ears, and have successfully placed all of them on the first try and without any complications. (Not suggesting others Pierce themselves!!!)
All the piercings I have gotten healed easily including set of surface bars (anti-eyebrows,) as I take extremely good care of both my body and aftercare routines. Normally I only use saline soaks and two daily showers.
However I have tried to heal a set of snake bites three times now. First trial I had them for a year and would not heal. Second time I gave them 9 months before retiring them. I am now on my third set and it's been over 4 months.
There have been many complications. Including losing jewellery, being forced to wear clear retainers too early, biting the studs (rings would not heal in the first two attempts,) and jewellery being too tight.
One side has been doing consistently better than the other. My lip piercing on the right side has had a mild recurring infection. Once every 2 weeks or so when I gently pushed on the piercing from the back of the stud, I noticed a lump very close to the exit either near the top or bottom of the piercing. When I gently pushed on this lump some yellowish discharge would come out, sometimes it was thicker. There was never a profound amount, but it certainly was of major concern to me as it is the worst complication I have experienced thus far out of close to 20 piercings.
Last night I forcibly drained this lump again and thoroughly. It swelled even bigger. I then applied the Briotech spray twice. When I woke up only 6 hours later I applied again and checked the swelling. The swelling is less than it has been in 2 months!
I am amazed at how quickly this spray has worked.
I think it's worth mentioning that I take good care of my health and diet. I get PLENTY of exercise and also eat mainly a vegan diet and take herbal supplements every now and then and also eat a varied diet to get PLENTY of nutrients.
Even this was not enough to heal my piercings but the spray seems to be helping immensely.

I had my VCH pierced 9 months ago from someone other than Elayne. Everything has healed well until the last few months I started to get the dreaded bubble under the top gem. It itched and felt like it was pinching. I went back to my piercer and she thought I needed to do sea salt soaks in distilled water. When that didn't work I paid the $10 and contacted Elayne. She is amazing! She recommended I use the no-pull discs and change my jewelry to one with a more rounded jewelry on top. So far I have had the disc on for 1 day and it already feels 110% better! I'm anxious to see if the bubble will disappear as the makers of the no pull disc claim it will. Elayne was very informative, responded very quickly and she probably should have charged me more than the $10 with all the communication we did back and forth. She helped me find a piercer she trusts in my area. I highly recommend her! Well worth the money!

I recently had a consult with Elayne (if you are worried about the legitimacy of the payment method fear not!!). I had a bad peircing experience and really needed some advice on what to do about my piercings. I came across this site and the help I recieve from Elayne was absolutely fantastic!! She was so willing to help and very informative. I regret not finding this site before I had any of my piercings done!! Thank you so much Elayne. Apart from the great advice you have given me the confidence to possibly consider getting the piercing done again. I will be using this site and all it offers again in the future definietly. I was extremely anxious and worried about the piercings but Elaynes replies came almost immediatly and set my mind at ease.
August 2, 2016 - 7:17pm
I just wanted to stop by again and say how appreciative I am of all of Elayne's wisdom and willingness to help.
Over the past few years, Elayne has done wonderful and informative online consultations to assist me with piercing questions and concerns. She did my triangle piercing for me, but has assisted me with questions about other piercings I have. She is the epitome of great client care!

Elayne is amazing. I decided to get a VCH and was thrilled to have the opportunity to be pierced in Hollywood by Elayne. She explained everything and it didn't hurt at all. There was maybe just 1/2 second of a dull ache. That was it. Then immediately no pain. I swear my piercing has already healed and it's only ten days old. No pain. No throbbing. I didn't even need the cooling pad. My ears and cartilage hurt more than my VCH. Elayne was friendly and professional and also helped me choose which jewelry was best for me. If anyone is hesitant to be pierced I cannot say enough good things about Elayne. She is a kindred spirit and had good energy to boot. Thank you Elayne for everything.

I have wanted my nipples pierced for over 6 years. I have been a fan of Elayne and her infinite skill and knowledge for just as long. My hesitancy to go through with it was never out of fear, but simply because I would have no other person pierce me other than her. In the summer of 2015, a friend of mine mentioned she had gone to Elayne for a VCH piercing and I just about cried when I discovered she had already left town! Fast forward to May 2016, I got myself on the wait list and when dates were released I took the first available opening. I purchased her book and read it several times over. I sent photos (along with several emails with questions) to Elayne and she responded almost immediately. She was patient and warm and shared in my great excitement. The day of my piecing, she walked out in all her beauty with a huge smile and the experience was one I will always treasure. Ancient Adornments' staff was friendly, funny and equally excited for me to be there. During my piecing, Elayne and I talked about our shared love for life, animals and doing the things you love. I couldn't possibly rave or recommend her enough and just like I told her, she is a true gift to this community of body art/modification lovers. I will be forever grateful and my only regret is that I didn't see her sooner.

I recently (Sunday) got my VCH pierced by one of Elayne's references, Alicia, at Sol Tribe in Denver, CO. She was very informative and helpful, and did an absolutely wonderful job! There was very little pain, and she walked me through the process several times before actually doing it. She doesn't do a lot of piercing herself anymore, but I didn't mind waiting for an appointment with her. I absolutely couldn't thank Elayne enough for the reference! I'm in love with my new jewelry!

Elayne was so so helpful! From the start she was so sweet and helped me figure out the payment through paypal. I got a consultation for a troublesome piercing that was poorly placed, and she gave me some great insights and advice about how to move forward and let it heal and where to get it pierced when it's safe to re-pierce. She even gave me the name of someone she knows who can help me fix my piercing right here where I live. She answered all of my million questions without hesitation. Thank you Elayne!
June 13, 2016 - 4:49pm
THANK YOU ELAYNE! you provided me with so much information regarding my 3 day old nipple piercing... which was not optimally placed. Im so glad i reached out to you before i got to attached to my piercing. I will make a better decision on where i get repierced thanks to your expert advice. THANK YOU for replying so quickly and answering every question i had. You are Awesome and i wish you were in California. BLESSINGS!

I'm extremely grateful I came across tis wonderful person! She gave great information & provided direction in order to protect my piercings, but more so? My health. She referred my case to Dandyland here in San Antonio, & they did not disappoint. I had a triple forward helix done wrong, & my ear was healing as best as it could, but was not enough. Turns out my ear is only built to hold a double helix; something that was overlooked the first time I had it pierced at Body Art Tattoo & Piercing. As a consequence, I developed infection along with hypertrophic scarring. I tried it all, & turns out I was drying out my ear. If it wasn't for this awesome lady, I'd still feel the stress of healing three piercings that were never going to do so.
Thanks Elayne! I look forward to healing well, & getting a second one put it once I'm healed up. So glad to have come across your website.
