Great Body Piercing Book!!
I LOVE this book!! I am a huge fan of body piercings! I have a total of 13 piercings:-) 2 done by Elayne Angel<3 I own a physical copy of this book that I got when I met Elayne and had her sign it. Well the book has fallen apart from me re reading it over and over and always looking through it. I still keep it of course because of Elayne signing it:-) I suggest anyone who has never had a piercing yet but are interested they should get this book! It will teach you everything you need to know when getting a piercing. This book is also for someone who has had piercings and maybe want to learn more like where Body Piercings started and why. Shows you pictures of many piercings so you can become more knowledgable about the piercings you have and the future ones you want:-) this book is great!! I read it from cover to cover and then again! Just love it!! has stories from people who have had bad piercings done wrong by piercers that really don't know what they are doing!(believe me they are out there!) this book will teach you everything you need to know when getting your new Body Jewelry. This book is a must buy!!! You will not be sorry!!
