Elayne Angel


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!


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.

I would like to thank you ! I applied for a anatomy consultation and i am glad i did. I Don't know what people would do without your advise . It would be nice if guests could add a photo letting people see what they can have to enjoy . My wife can testify to that . I think everybody you have helped would fill up a photo gallery for you. Your site is the only one everbody trusts. Your the BEST! Looking forward to my consultation


I'm living in Germany and wrote Elayne after having received the 2nd misplaced triangle. The 1st one was pierced through the clitoral shaft, the 2nd too low to stimulate anything. I felt desperate and unhappy and asked for advice what to do now. Elayne gave me some very good advice and calmed me down, made me feel a lot better. Now I retired also the 2nd misplaced triangle, let it heal and have the hope I'll find a good piercer in Germany to pierce the 3rd triangle. It was such a hard and painful road until now and I hope I will finally end up with the perfect trianlge I've been dreaming of for several months now. I wish I could afford the flight to USA to get pierced by Elayne herself, but that will stay a dream.


Thank you for your very informative website! I used your referral and traveled 2 hours to see Kevin Jump at HTC in Phoenix. I have just gotten back and I am so thrilled, I even squeeed in the shop. I'm 50+, it took me a long time to get the courage to do this. Based on the research I did here, I went in with my options open for VCH or Triangle. Kevin evaluated me and advised against the Triangle and said the VCH would be the best piercing for me because of my anatomy. I had examined myself prior to going in and had figured VCH because I don't look anything like the pics of the ones with the Triangle. There are many websites with really bad information and hearsay, I want to say thank you very much for helping me make an informed decision that has already changed my outlook even more on life. I feel even more in control of my own sexuality and I really like it. Kevin was very professional, explained everything to me, put me at ease with his knowledge and personality. I just cannot thank you enough!


Elayne Angel is completely professional and helpful. She sincerely cared about my concerns with horribly places nipple piercings done by a place in Crofton Maryland called Mystic Piercings by a piercer named Ben. Elayne was completely patient and surprising very quick to answer my emails. I am extremely happy with her consultation and can not wait to get pierced by her!

I've been lucky enough to get a guiche and lorum piercing by Elayne on her last visit to Philly and just want everybody to know that no matter how long the wait is for an appointment with Elayne, it's WELL WORTH the wait! She is very professional and the best in the business in my opinion. I'm glad to see that you're coming back in September and will be signing up for the newsletter to possibly schedule an appointment for more genital piercings. I'm proud and honored to be pierced by the best.


After 5 months of struggling with my nipple piercings and was ready to take them out and start over I found Elayne!! I realized how uneducated I was with piercings. It was amazing to talk to someone so extremely educated and wise, I now know exactly what to do to heal my piercings because everything I thought I was doing right, was wrong! She is absolutely amazing and has saved my piercings from future disaster.


After almost 3 months of a tremendously difficult time with my 7-year old daughter's lobe piercings, I finally found Elayne! She was like an instant friend and supporter. Her $10 consult fee is so reasonable and she really invested time and thought into our problem. She gave detailed advice with weblinks that I could easily click on for more information. She was highly responsive and very caring! Thank you, Elayne!! You were a huge help to us and we greatly appreciate it.


"The Piercing Bible" is well written, informative and approachable book that demystifies the world of piercing for anyone who wants to know more. Before you invest in a piercing of any nature, do yourself a favor and invest your time in reading this book instead of what you find from a google search!


I used to weigh 120 lbs when I got my navel pierced. About 7 years ago I was diagnosed with hypoactive thyroidism. Within the first year I gained 70 lbs. At my largest I was 239. 2 years of struggling I'm down to 210, however my navel hole is now larger than the piercing and during the time of the quick weight gain a bruised (purplish/blueish) appeared from the top of navel on up. It's about the size of a nickel. Do u happen to have any suggestions as to get rid of the discoloration (it really stands out)? And should I get another piercing further back into the navel (I've had the piercing for about 20 years now) or just buy a larger ring? I thank you so much for your time...Tena

Hi Tena,

I can't offer much personalized advice without doing a proper consultation, which would include seeing photos of the area. You can sign up for a consult with me by selecting the "Piercing Problem Consultation" link from the "Consultations" navigation link at the top of the page.

As far as reducing the visibility of your scar, you may want to try one of the scar reduction products mentioned in my book, or ask your pharmacist for a suggestion. Elayne


Hi What a great website You have, everything collected in one site, alle you need to now about Piercings and aftercare. We will recommend people from Denmark to find inspiration on Your site. Best Wishes from in Denmark. Pornvipa.

Thanks for your posting in my guestbook. I’d need to do an online consultation to determine which piercings you’re anatomically suited for. I would be happy to evaluate your anatomy, even if you plan to go to another piercer. To sign up for a consultation, please visit this page:

In 2016, I’ll be working in L.A. in July, and in Philadelphia in September, but I haven’t set the exact dates for either trip yet. I will be announcing the details at the end of March. I may also be working in New Orleans toward the end of October or beginning of November.

If you haven't already and would like to be notified when I make travel plans, please sign up for my newsletter by typing your email address into the box at the top of the right column on any page of my sieverte: It is an "opt-in" list, so I can't add you myself.

Please visit this page for more detailed information about booking an appointment with me:

If you don’t want to wait for me, or won’t be able to make it to one of the locations where I’ll be piercing, you can go here for my piercer referrals:


I am 68 years old and want to have a VCH piercing if anatomically able. I live in a suburb of Cleveland OH. I am not having any luck finding a reputable piercer. Can you help?


Hi Susan,

Thanks for your message. Though the form on the CONTACT page is a better forum for questions.

To sign up for an anatomy consultation so I can check your suitability, please visit this page:

All of my piercer referrals are posted on this page of my website: 

If I haven't personally worked with or trained any piercers in your area, you can check the website for a member of the Association of Professional Piercers who is local to you:

The APP is a non-profit international organization dedicated to disseminating vital health and safety information about piercing to piercers, piercees, medical professionals, legislators, and the general public. The piercers are not "certified" by the association, however. While some of the piercers on the list may have taken my seminars at the annual APP conferences, I still wouldn't consider them to have been "trained by me," as those courses only last a few hours and aren't sufficient for providing a thorough education. Please meet the piercer and see if you develop a good rapport and if they inspire your confidence.

The best thing I can suggest to help you make good decisions about piercing is to become a more well-educated consumer. If you found my website informative, I think you'll be amazed by all of the valuable facts and practical advice in my book, The Piercing Bible--The Definitive Guide to Safe Body Piercing.  It contains loads of information about evaluating piercers and studios, piercing placements, appropriate body jewelry sizes, styles, and materials, aftercare, troubleshooting, and much, much more. My website contains just barely a taste of the information in my book!



My husband and I flew to LA to get pierced by Elayne on Dec. 6, 2015. We've been pierced before but wanted to get more piercings. Finding the right piercer isn't always easy but Elayne's credentials are top-shelf to say the least. It was an easy decision for us to fly out and meet with Elayne. I got two inner labia piercings plus a VCH while my husband got three frenum (ladder). In the process, Elayne noticed that a previous inner labia piercing thought to be closed was actually still open and ready for business. The piercings themselves went off without a hitch and with minimal pain. By far one of the most pain-free piercing sessions we've ever had because of Elayne's swiftness and overall technique. This is even more evident by how fast we're healing! Her post-piercing care advice is invaluable and the Emu oil really does make a difference. I am now almost 100% healed and my husband is half way there himself (his piercings typically have a longer healing time so it's normal that I'm healed before he is). We're so pleased! And we can't imagine doing this again with anyone other than Elayne.
