Hayley from Gloucestershire
I attended Slack Alices Piercing Academy in August 2020 with Master Trainer Laurie.  Laurie was friendly and approachable and immediately put students at ease. His approach to teaching was excellent, a huge amount of information broken down into appropriate sections with many breaks to allow students to remain focussed. Course content was comprehensive and provided all the information required to set up your own studio. Practical piercing was invaluable and Laurie was on hand to support and advise throughout.  Piercing and Dermal kit content is also excellent and highly recommended. The course left me feeling like SAPA really wanted me to succeed and Laurie’s support continues long after the course has ended. Many thanks to the whole Slack Alice Family 😊
Ceri from Wales

I have really enjoyed the whole experience from day 1. Laurie is a very good teacher and explains everything so clearly, very understanding and easy to get along with. The most enjoyable part was getting to pierce the models. Laurie was so reassuring the whole time and made you feel confident through the whole process. The folder provided is full of useful information and is very clearly written to refer back to when you need to. All in all – great experience and would really recommend the course!
J thanks Laurie 
Galina from Kent
On arrival day I was super nervous but I had absolutely no reason to be. Laurie is a master of his trade and a lovely person. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything really well. Piercing day was awesome, again a nervous start, but the clients were great and very understanding. Don’t be fooled into thinking this is an easy course to pass, there is a lot to learn in a short time but Laurie takes it in his stride and helps you a lot, with frequent Q&A sessions. I couldn’t have wanted anything else from this course it is perfect. Everyone at Slack Alice’s Piercing Academy is friendly and welcoming – nothing was to much trouble.
Thank you Laurie for your expertise. Thank you Vicky for being lovely and keeping us topped up with refreshments.
Thank you to Jaye for being patient with having strangers around when your working.
 Amanda from Wales
I arrived for the course totally blind with no experience at all, I was really nervous and scared of what to expect.
Vicky opened up and invited me in where Laurie and Jaye were waiting. I instantly felt at ease and was excited about the coming days. The course was full on with a lot of listening involved but Laurie is absolutely amazing and the way he explains and demonstrates is 100% amazing.
Ive left with confidence to pierce people.
Georgina from Liverpool 
I am absolutely over the moon with the training I received at Slack Alice’s. I had searched for months for a piercing course and this one was definitely the best!
Laurie is a fabulous teacher, he is so thorough in the way he teaches and he always makes sure you understand everything. 
I know I am going away with so much knowledge and I am so grateful! This course is intense but so enjoyable!
Thank you so much!

For a course that’s a only four days long, it really covers everything, from actual techniques to cross contamination and managing prices to dealing with fainting clients. No stone was left unturned and no question unanswered.
The staff in the studio are amazing and Friendly and Laurie is a fantastic and very thorough teacher.
I’m thankful I have gone through this and have learned everything I need to start piercing.
Sian from Two Kings Tattoo Studio Witney 
This course has been one of the most educational things I have ever done. I’ve been wanting to. Start my career in body piercing since I left school.
Thankfully my tattoo artists gave me the incredible opportunity to attend Slack Alice’s Piercing Academy!
The course us is thorough and Laurie is such a kind and understanding teacher. The information students get to keep is basically a piercing bible -  I will for sure refer back to it regularly when I start piercing full time.

Just attended a four day piercing course at Slack Alice’s. It was absolutely fantastic training. Laurie the trainer is amazing, he has so much patience and explains everything you need to know in detail.
There was nothing that he missed and we have a folder to takeaway with everything we have learned, and everything we will need to start our piercing. Nothing was to much trouble.

Donna from Dudley 
Wow what an experience 
Came here with no idea how to pierce or what it entailed.
Firstly I would like to thank Laurie, Vicky and Jaye for their very warm welcome they all made feel extremely welcome and at ease.
The course was very informative, very professional and I am happy to have been given the chance to experience this.
If I can give anyone any advice, it would be to join Laurie. He is the master of piercing and he has so earned that title.
I feel that I am very privileged to have this opportunity.
Many thanks guys much love.
