Body Piercing Courses UK

Courses have a duration of 3 – 4 days dependent upon the course(s) you choose. You will be taught in a large and gorgeous Piercing Suite that transforms and adapts to the varying course requirements. A variety of teaching aids are available, including Dummy Models and real time experience of Body Piercing and client care, as well as valuable practice on ‘Live’ models. You will receive daily handouts that encompass and form the entire syllabus, all to be stored in a smart folder that you get to keep for future reference.

With new COVID - 19 SECURE GUIDELINES and STUDIO POLICY, all students will wear a face mask or covering during their stay with us and a face visor will be provided to students by us for close contact services and you can keep this at the end of the course at no extra cost.
PPE has always been provided and is a must in any studio prior to COVID - 19.  There are no extra charges for PPE used on the course and an unlimited supply will be provided to students through out their stay with us and use of hospital grade cleaning products and sanitisers are readily available. Medical face masks will be provided and worn under the face visor on the practical day and they are type 2 fluid resistant masks, which offer the best protection under the visor when working in close contact of clients.


The Piercing Course days are Tuesday - Friday  (Finishing the body piercing course at lunchtime on Friday) and if you are attending the Dermal Course, we will contiue this after lunch till 17:30hrs.
Each day we will start at 09:30hrs and finish at 17:30hrs. We will aim to have lunch at 13:00hrs each day.

Refreshments will be available at all times during the course.

There is a recommended, fabulous kit that we supply. Full to bursting it allows you, upon passing the course, to start Piercing from Day 1 after Qualification. (To view the size of the kit please view the pictures in the testimonial section of the website, students are pictured with suitcases and these are their piercing kits)

On successful completion of the course(s) you will receive a Certificate: Official and Wax sealed. This will allow you to start your career as a Professional Body Piercer. Going into a studio or starting up solo, the Certificate is a qualification that will get you that all important ‘License to Pierce’ from your local E. H. A. With everything provided on the course, including writing paper and pens, all you’ve got to bring is… Yourself! And we very much look forward to meeting you!
