The testimonials below are just some of the feedback from Guestbook postings left by happy clients that I have pierced, or done Internet consultations (for anatomical suitability for piercings and/or piercing problems):
February 21, 2017 - 2:41pm (For a Piercing Problem Consultation about her nostril piercing)
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Elayne. She was wonderful. I contacted her for a consult regarding my nose piercing. I was unsure about the placement and was getting so many opinions, but I am so glad I contacted her; my consult really gave me peace of mind. She responded quickly and was so nice. She answered all of my questions and sent me visuals back so I could see exactly what she was referring to. Elayne was very honest in her opinion of what looked good for my anatomy and really made me feel confident. Will definitely come back for a consult for any other piercings.

I contacted Elayne about an otherwise well behaved nipple piercing that had migrated. Her website and book were a great resource for aftercare and knowing what kind of issues that could arise, giving me answers to questions I didn't even know to ask.

In 2012 I decided to transform my self-pierced Prince Albert into a Apadravya. Elayne did an amazing job--the piercing was quick, precise and relatively painless. I love having an Apadravya and had scheduled an appointment to get an Ampallang to create a Magic Cross (Iron Cross) piercing. I made a deposit for the piercing session and was contacted by Elayne to submit photos to assist with jewelry measurement. However, when I sent her the photos, it was obvious to her that the Ampallang would not be possible due to the angle of the Apadravya and the large gauge jewelry being worn in it. If we did proceed with the Ampallang, there would be a high chance that it would be difficult to heal and could possibly migrate. I decided to cancel my piercing and she issued a full refund, minus the $10 consultation fee. Although I was disappointed, I really respect Elayne's integrity and professionalism. She is a gifted master piercer and I've had two very positive interactions with her, although only one resulted in a piercing:

I was lucky enough to have my VCH done by Elayne on 3/22/15 while she was at Infinite in Philly. Elayne is the epitome of knowledge and professionalism - she pierced me in, quite literally, two seconds, and I remember yammering about how shocked I was that she was *really that quick.* She's incredibly kind, answered all of my questions, and was even kind enough to inform me about my suitability for future piercings I was considering. Her experience is literally unparalleled, and it shows. I will definitely be pierced by Elayne again later this year when she returns to Infinite - in July, most likely, but if circumstances change, then definitely in November. If you're considering any genital piercing, waiting for her to visit a city near you or travelling to a stop on her tour is well worth it! EM
Elayne...it was an AWESOME PLEASURE to meet and have my VCH & Triangle done by you at infinite in Philly on 3/25/15. You answered all question pre-vist and post-visit. You made me feel at ease with just a small jolt for the triangle and a pinch for the VCH. I love the Jewels they look great!! You have such a warm, calming spirit and a great attitude. Thanks again for the tip of the Z-coils. I can't wait until you return to Philly to get my autographed copy of your book and hopefully a photo as well. Continue to be blessed in your craft....YOU ROCK!!! :) Robbin
I am recently fully healed from a triangle piercing which I was grateful& happy to have had done by Elayne in mid December 2014. I also had one nipple pierced. I have had two nipple piercings in the past that healed shut & I had no idea that these piercings took so long to heal because they had been pierced in the wrong location! I also had a previous hood piercing that I wasn't told would be strictly cosmetic, so going to Elayne was an incredible experience. She is wonderfully gifted & gracious expert. Elayne is so knowledgeable that there was NO pain from the extremely quick & perfectly placed piercings. They are incredibly suited to me which was determined before hand in a consultation with Elayne. My words of praise seem too menial when compared with the professionalism, passion and empathy she has for what she does. There is no one like you! Thank you Elayne! You ROCK! Joy
I am so grateful to have met and been pierced by you Elayne. You are so informative, relaxed, precise and quick as lightening. The piercings barley hurt. I'm in love with my new matching outer labia set and my VCH. They are beautiful and healing fast. You are a goddess. Thank you for doing what you do and caring so much for every single one of your clients!!!!!I could not have felt any more at ease. My expectations were exceeded:) Thank you so very much! Holly
I was in Philadelphia on July 6th at Infinite Piercing to have you do a VCH piercing for me. I just want to thank you for the great job you did! Not only did it not hurt at all, because by the time you did it, I asked you " was that it"? Because I was expecting more, but, it looks and feels great! It's been 31/2 weeks and I have healed so quickly, but I feel that's due to the extremely sanitary conditions and technique. I think anyone who has this type piercing done by anyone but you is crazy! You're the best! Thank you again! Just for the record, to anyone who reads this entry, I am 54 yrs old, and I am loving this piercing! So glad I did it! Lois M.
I wanted to continue to affirm your good work. When I received my two female genital piercings 2 months ago, I had no idea what to expect. I remembered that you said that the triangle piercing would take 3 months to heal. After about 3 weeks I thought that I was completely healed because the added pleasure was fantastic and not at all painful. Since another month has passed, I find that I am even MORE pleased with my decision!! I am so tempted to walk up to strangers on the street and tell them about the many benefits of the triangle and clitoral hood piercings but I have confined my good news to my gynocologist and a few close friends. Thank you for using your God-given gifts to enhance the lives of women. Karen
I am so thankful to have had the pleasure of getting pierced by Elayne. Last time she came to Dallas, I got up the nerve for my VCH. She was so professional and comforting and I knew I was in the best hands (especially given all the tremendous research I had done). I wanted a triangle too, but I thought I should let the VCH heal first and not get too enthusiastic. I wish I had gotten the triangle then! I appreciate referrals, but I just can not bring myself to have anyone else do it. I've waited all this time for Elayne to finally come back to Dallas so I emailed her (she always emails me back) and she said she'd be back in Dallas in September! Yes!!! I have alot of patience when it comes to getting something so important done right and I only have a little over two months to go--but she's worth it. I know it will be done RIGHT. Now hurry up September!!! C.
Elayne Angel, you are an Angel...thanks you so much for doing my VCH piercing. I know I was a babbling idiot when I walked in but you made me so comfortable and explained the entire process to me. I was so surprised how fast it took for you to to the piercing, you made my awful commute worthwhile. I am so glad I found you and you did my piercing. Thank you for writing the piercing bible which i found to be packed with knowledge which I have and will constantly refer to. I will see you in a year for the triangle. Thanks so much. Onie
I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I'm 5 days post vch and double nipple piercing and I love them all!! Elayne you truly are an angel. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! Tiffany
I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I had my triangle pierced by you in Dallas last week and I'm in love with it already. Your professionalism and incredible knowledge base really put me at ease before, during, and after the piercing. I'm beyond glad that i did my research and that you were piercing near me. I'm following the cleaning schedule and I'm not having any issues so far. Thank you so much! Jamie
Hi Elayne. I just wanted to tell you I love emu oil. It has cleared up my jock itch better than any medicine I have ever used. > You pierced me on July 8th in Philly. I did bleed for a couple days after. By day 5, if I remember correctly, there was no more bleeding. I have never felt any pain from the piercing, even my first urination was not in anyway painful, I was surprised. I did how ever leave a trail of blood in rest areas all the way to North Carolina where I was going to look for a house, which I am still looking for. > I would Like to tell everyone Elayne is the best, she is very professional, very helpful with any questions and makes you feel very at ease. My piercing was an apadravya. BR
I had seen pictures of guys with ampallangs and had been fascinated. I finally decided that i wanted to get it done. I had seen pictures of ampallangs done by a woman in New Orleans and had really like the way that the placement looked. I had read the accounts and was struck. I put it aside thinking that i would never be able to get to New Orleans to get my penis pierced. Having moved to near Philadelphia I happened upon a picture on a body piercing site of a guy who had a great looking ampallang. I emailed him asking where he had gotten his piercing and he responded saying that Elayne Angel was the piercer. I had no idea who Elayne was but if she worked there then that is where I would go. I had no idea how lucky I was about to get. I learned that Elayne is a guest at the studio occasionally. Wow, talk about neat alignment. So I told Elayne what I wanted and she was very enthusiastic. She asked that I send pictures of my penis so that she could see what she was working with. She was very professional and open. Finally the day came. I drove to Infiniti in South Philly and went and waited. Elayne was enthusiastic, which helps. This was my first time getting pierced in a professional studio and she made me feel as at ease as possible. The actual piercing, of feeling the needle go through me penis was not painful. I felt pressure and only a little pain as she said at the end when the needle exited. It went very quickly, I was amazed at how fast she pierced me and put the barbell through. It's been almost three weeks and it feels amazing. The only discomfort is when the crusties around the bar irritate the tissue, or it gets caught in my clothes. Occasionally it is sore but that is just the tissue healing and adjusting. I had a PA, and could not stand the thing banging against stuff all the time. The ampallang is perfect. Elayne did a great job getting it as deep as possible. Guys, if you've ever wondered. Get it done. It's worth the discomfort, and not as bad as you would think. Especially if you get pierced by Elayne. Thanks Dan
Dear Elayne, I wanted to "Thank you" for a job well done. I was on the fence about getting a genital piercing, hearing horror stories of other peoples' experiences.But after doing some research, I stumbled upon your website. I liked what I saw, and thought you were the right person for my 1st piercing. I opted for the Triangle piercing. Although, my appointment was scheduled in advanced for Friday, April 13th, I really wasn't going to allow the friggatriskaidekaphobia, to deter me in any way and I am very happy that it didn't. It's been almost a month now, and I must say I am happy with the healing process. It wasn't as bad as I anticipated. I am loving my new look! You carry yourself in such a professional manner, that made my experience worth while. I will be contacting you for the next piercing, a VCH, very soon!!! Thanks again, and keep doing a great job!! Michelle S.
I can not express how wonderful my piercing experience with Elayne was! She is the piercing angel :) After being in a funk for a while feeling old and not very attractive or sexy- I stumbled upon Elayne's page and read how a grandmother got pierced- and how wonderful she felt about her self. Well I realized Elayne was coming to Philly and contacted her immediately- unfortunately she was booked- but somehow it was meant to be as she had a cancellation! I booked my flight from Portland Maine and drove myself crazy waiting thinking if I should really go through with this- will it make me feel as good as I think? No doubt! Elayne was so personable- professional and the best piercer and artist I have ever met! I got two piercings a new type of triangle Elayne invented and a VHC- all in gold and beautiful! The healing has been great- easy and I am out of my funk! Thanks Elayne for making me feel HOT again :) I highly recommend everyone gets pierced by you! Allyson
In September Elayne did a VCH for me in Oklahoma City. When it came to picking jewelry, since I don't have a fav color we went with her fav which is purple *since then I've changed to a pearl*. Most of the reviews that I saw prior to having mine done weren't very informative so rather than give a review on day one, I waited to fully heal. The whole process was quick and painless; seriously it was over before I even knew she had started. A quick pinch and a pass of the mirror and I was done! The outside healing process was quick, the interior healing took a bit longer possibly because I didn't wait the proper healing time before having sex again *shame on me* but I did soak afterwards and all ended up well. I did/do have the occasional issue with some irritation where the top ball hits the skin, I think It’s from running and sweating. If you buy Elayne’s book *you REALLY should* you'll be able to identify and understand what I'm talking about. Since I’ve changed to dry fit exercise panties and leggings it doesn’t happen very often. It's nothing serious and a quick soak seems to clear it up. I do have days where the piercing irritates me other days I can’t feel it all. For me it doesn’t enhance sex any, at times I find it a bit bothersome especially if you’re using toys.
Thanks again Elayne for beautifully decorating my cupcake <3 Kris
Thank you Elayne! You are a wonderful person and an amazing piercer! I love the VCH and nipple piercings! The "treatment" looks great and they all feel pretty good too:) I can't wait until they're healed!
You were so lovely and calming and kind and I'm so very glad that I was pierced by you on April 16th. I can't wait until I go back for my triangle! Thanks again, N.
I had the pleasure of being pierced by Elayne in Philadelphia on of all the days of the year Friday the 13th. That did scare me a bit but it went better than expected.I am extremely needle phobic and if I could get through it anyone can. Elayne was very professional and gentle so I did not worry at all and felt completely at ease that I was getting my piercing done by the best person in the world. I got both a VCH and Triangle and I must say I am thrilled!!!!!! She was so gentle that the piercing I thought would hurt really badly, the triangle, did not hurt more than the triangle at all. If anything it was the same level of discomfort. Healing has been great, I am following all her instructions and a day later I had no major discomfort. I can't wait for them to heal completely and experiment with different jewelry. Elayne is simply the best and everyone should travel no matter how far to get their piercings done. You will have no regrets. It is so worth it! K.
I am extremely pleased with my decision to be pierced by Elayne at Infinite. She is not only knowledgeable, but she is passionate about her craft and that is reflected in the quality of work. I came in, contemplating either a VCH or a clitoral piercing and after a brief consultation and feedback as to my expectations, Elayne recommended a VCH. She readied her tools while talking me through the process. "Deep breath, exhale, and you will be pierced. I do not count to 3". Well just as easy as that it was over. Similar to the sensation of an ear lobe piercing, only in your lady parts. As she tightened my jewelry, I actually was laughing because physically this is a low pain procedure. Any stress or discomfort stems from your own psychological inhibitions and horror stories of those pierced by inexperienced piercers. Elayne is the best of the best and I am honored to have been pierced by her. Lauren
It was nice meeting you yesterday! You, and the staff at Infinite Body Piercing, made me feel welcome and very comfortable! I was a little nervous about getting pierced but your inviting and friendly personality put me at ease! I am very happy with my VCH piercing. I have no discomfort and I honestly don't even know its there! Thanks again! M.
Thank you so much for doing my VCH piercing yesterday. Getting my piercing done by you was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Your tenderness coupled with your professionalism has me screaming "GO GET PIERCED BY ELAYNE!" from the rooftops. You are amazingly down to earth and while I was hopelessly star struck (and still am) you and the piercing were not in the least bit intimidating. I spent the rest of the day talking my boyfriend's ear off about how comfortable I was and how great the piercing feels already. I can't wait until it's healed, and neither can he ;-) Thank you for all of your hard work and if I ever decide to get anymore piercings, you will be the first person I think of. Michaela
About Elayne: Simply the best! Love her!! VERY professional & reassuring. About me: Pushing 50, first piercing (vch), nervous as hell but sucked it up and calmed myself knowing I was in the.best.hands! (I'd done my research.) About my piercing: Gorgeous! Wish I'd had it done sooner. Over quickly and I was pain free within five minutes. To sum it up: I'd rate my experience as a 20 on a 1 to 10 scale. Absolute excellence. Elayne, you can bet I will see you again on your next trip to my neck of the woods. :) Thanks a million. Mare E
The reason why I wanted to get my VCH piercing was because I wanted to feel better about my body again. At the age of 36 I started to realize how insecure I was about my body. I guarded myself from enjoying relationships with the excuse of not having sex, because I didn't want to feel the judgement from a partner, either about myself as a person or my anatomy. I had thought about this modification for a very long time and I figured getting a VCH would be the most direct way of facing this insecurity. Little did I know. Jen
After reading about Elayne Angel's knowledge, her role in the Association of Professional Piercers (APP), and her favorable reputation within the piercing industry, I knew I wanted her to do my VCH. The day of the piercing I was thoroughly nervous and running late, because of Los Angeles traffic. There was even the issue of my menstrual cycle that I let her know about via e-mail a few days before, which she wasn't even bothered by at all. (Thank goodness!) I kept wondering whether or not I would actually go through with the piercing.
Elayne was very accommodating in regards to confirming the VCH piercing I wanted to get and with picking out the appropriate jewelry for my anatomy. (I picked out a wonderful curved bar with two sparkling clear CZ gems.) I remember I was so nervous that I kept rethinking whether or not I wanted to sit in the chair in front of her, but didn't say anything to her about what I was thinking. I did sit down. Elayne talked me through everything. She let me know where there was vascularity, marked the spot, and showed me in the mirror where the jewelry would be located. I'll admit, the piercing did smart. However, the pain was gone by the time I reacted verbally. Elayne then followed the needle through with the jewelry, which didn't hurt at all. The entire piercing session was insanely fast. While she showed me in the mirror how the VCH piercing turned out, she said, "So cute. Now you have your own little secret." I was so happy that she had made that comment, because it made me feel like my decision was a good one.
This happened in January and it's July now. I had no problems during the healing process. I love this piercing!!! The jewelry sits beautifully. I wish I had done this years earlier. Not only is it attractive, but has provided me a great sense of ownership and happiness that I really had no clue was missing as much as it was.
I'm so glad I sought out Ms. Angel to perform my VCH piercing. Not only does she have a comforting bedside manner, but she is also someone who comes across as accepting and very sweet. Today, I'm definitely feel more appreciative of my body and welcoming of the reality of physical individuality. I feel like my body is something to be proud of and I'm excited to continue decorating. :) Dianna
I was so excited to learn that Elayne was going to be in Atlanta that i planned this visit for more than 2 months! This visit went smooth, was very pleasant and informative and I got to see a true professional in action. I'm so thrilled to see Elayne has encouraged so many to step up to the plate and be proactive with education and sanitation. What an inspiration she is! Wonderful woman with a beautiful personality and an absolutely comforting bedside manner. Thank you Elayne!
This feedback below is from people who've had anatomy consultations with me:
"Elayne, I cannot explain to you how pleased I was with your prompt consultation. Your knowledge & expertise was just what I was looking for to address the placement issues that I was experiencing with my nose piercing. I am relieved to know that there was a solution.
Also, thank you for providing me the useful information from the Association of Professional Piercers (APP). I am defenitely more informed about my decision to have my nose re-pierced and feel confident because I am more knowledgeable when working with my piercer. Elayne, thanks so much! The pictures you sent me to show the area for the correct placement of my piercing were right on. I'm taking these with me to show my piercer. Thanks So Much, Dawn"
I recently had my nose pierced and was concerned about the placement, so I contacted Elayne for an anatomy consultation. I sent her several pictures of my piercing and she was very quick to respond, very professional and SO sweet. She marked one of my pictures with lines to show what she describes as the “pleasing triangle” and she also included additional information and a diagram regarding placement. Lucky for me, she said my piercing is well placed for my anatomy! Seeing the markings on my picture along with all of the additional information that she gave me definitely put my mind at ease about my piercing. I was also experiencing some redness around the piercing and she sent me information, recommendations and links regarding aftercare and helped to set me on a better healing path. Thank you Elayne, you are wonderful!! Nikki
This woman also had an anatomy consultation with me in reference to nostril piercing placement:
"Thank you so very much for your attention to my issue. Thank you for understanding my being cautious about this issue and not thinking I'm making too much of this situation. I can not tell you how often I've heard negative feedback from my meticulous nature about being pierced. So thank you so very much again, for understanding.
To update you, I went to TRX studio and met with Stan. I was really impressed with his professionalism, the patience and expertise he showed when fielding my questions and the time he willingly provided. Based upon my experience with Stan, I decided to have the piercing done. It was a great experience! The piercing did not hurt at all. There was no bleeding and no tearing of the eye. Even after the piercing there has been no pain or "crusties". I am doing the soaks and using saline spray as well. So all is well and I am LOVING my new piercing! Yay!!!!!
In reference to your request of posting feedback on your guestbook, I would be honored. It has been a wonderful experience working with such a legend! I soooo think you under charge for what you do. Consequently, I will be going to your page to make a donation.
Thanks again. You really are an angel.
