This course has been the best experience by far I have ever experienced! The people who attended are amazing, the girls in the studio are absolutely lovely!
Laurie has been able to train/teach me so much in regards to business plans, and the practical of the piercing its self and all the way down to simple breathing methods to help calm the nerves.
Honestly if Piercing is a route you’re looking to go down I strongly recommend Slack Alice’s! The course is so in detail!
I couldn’t be happier!
Thank you guys!!!

Shannon from Birmingham 
I have learnt more than I could ever imagined on this course. Laurie is so knowledgable and attentive. The fact we were able to pierce live models was incredible. Having first hand experience was so helpful. The small class size really helped as we all were given the same amount of time with Laurie. 
The folder we were given was incredible as it is filled with everything we could possibly need. The course was very intense with lots of information but I know feel ready to dive into the profession. There isn’t a single thing he did not cover. He really made this course amazing and helps ready you for your career. Thank you for everything.

Ryan from Huntingdon

Ursula from Iceland
Great experience! Learned a lot even though I have a really high level of ADHD, first time I actually learned something in years! Thank you Laurie. Really great teacher, and Vicky really chatty and a really good character. Didn’t get time to talk to Jaye but looks like a really great character. Love the heads in the class room she made, very talented! Wish me luck!
Ursula – probably the only person you know from Iceland.

I’m now fully confident in Body Piercing and cant wait to get started on my own. Thank you so much Laurie, I’ve absolutely loved it this week. 
P.s special thanks to Vicky for all the coffees :) xxx

Emily from Northampton 
The course was very helpful and informative.
Laurie answered all questions, even the stupid ones, so we were never left in the dark. 
It was very easy to relax and have a laugh, whilst still learning everything we need to move forward in our careers.
I’m coming away from the course confident in what I’ve learnt, and feeling able to have a good career in body piercing.
Emily from Cardiff 
I found the course extremely helpful. From searching for piercing courses, Slack Alice’s provides the most to offer. The length of the course is also very useful as everything is able to fit in within the days, unlike some courses that last a day or two. 
All the staff in the shop are lovely to get along with and will help with any question no matter how random.
The course highlights all safety and cleanliness down to official health/government standards which is important for a training piercer and especially for when you are in need of inspections.
I am really grateful I found Slack Alice’s course, I have been more than happy and relaxed throughout and met lovely people and I will definitely be returning for the genital course when I feel confident enough in myself with clients in the coming months.
Olivia from Bristol
Slack Alice’s has been an amazing experience, very thorough and compact but a good fast pace. 
Laurie has been amazing and very patient with the many random questions that myself and the other students asked, never at one point have I felt like I was unable to ask questions and haven’t been left guessing about things.
The atmosphere has been friendly, calm and welcoming! A lovely shop placement! Good places around for food, parking was good and just around the corner!
Brilliant practical days with a lot of reassurance and made me feel a lot more confident.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone that was looking to get into piercing.
