Johnita from Birmingham
I just completed the piercing course and dermal course. I can honestly say that I can not recommend it enough. Laurie and the whole Slack Alice team are AMAZING!!! I literally went from knowing absolutely nothing about piercings to being a piercer. I feel that I have the knowledge, ability and understanding of the different types of piercings and skin divers and dermal anchors. Laurie is an awesome teacher! Not only does he go the extra mile to cater to his students, he takes extra time to explain if you don’t understand. Laurie I’m forever grateful for the opportunities that are coming my way through the course. I’m looking forward to my future as a successful piercer.

Lindsey from Isle of Man
I’ll start off my GLOWING review by saying that I loved this course and our amazing teacher Laurie (and the rest of the gang) so much that I actually cried when I left on the last day. I could have happily stayed for weeks! I’ve always been really interested in body modification and it has been my dream for a very long time, so I was really nervous and worried about what the course would be like, would I enjoy it etc, but Laurie makes you feel so at ease and welcome that I forgot all of that and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had SO MUCH FUN in our group, we were constantly laughing and it was such a supportive environment. I couldn’t wait to get back in the studio after the first day. Id written down so many things I wanted to ask, but put my notebook away almost immediately because Laurie is so knowledgeable and thorough in his teaching and the notes/handbook you receive are so detailed! The course is really well structured and Laurie goes out of his way to help with anything you ask or want to do.
Id highly recommend buying the kit, it is jam packed with everything you need to get started, going through it all feels like Christmas. The whole experience really is invaluable and worth every single penny. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from someone so good at what they do and for the offer of continued support while I start to set up my own studio.
Will definitely return in the future for the genital course (even if its just to hang out at the awesome Slack Alice’s again 😊

Kerry from East Grinstead
I cannot praise Laurie at Slack Alice’s piercing academy enough, I have left here feeling amazing, confident, excited and knowledgeable. Laurie has a fantastic teaching ethic and really knows his stuff. The knowledge and experience he is sharing with his students is just incredible. If you are currently looking for a piercing course, then I’m going to save you some time and any worries. Stop looking, this is the one you need. The studio it self its just so welcoming, clean and makes the perfect setting. The team are lovely, Laurie is just awesome, even the models for the practical day make you feel at ease. The kit gives you everything you need to set up initially but nothing beats what you learn. I can’t wait to start my new adventure knowing I have the support from Laurie and Slack Alice’s piercing academy. Thank you so much. 😊😊
