Body Piercing Course Testimonials

Rachel from Manchester
I attended Slack Alice's body/dermal piercing academy on 13-16 June 2017. I travelled all the way from Manchester for the course. I had researched numerous academy's but I chose Slack Alice's because they responded quickly to my messages and were very friendly and professional. I have to say I have attended numerous courses, but this course was so in depth and informative and I felt confident during the tutorials especially during the practical sessions.  I would definitely recommend them for professionalism and excellent value for money. I actually performed my first solo piercing the night I arrived home from the course and I wasn't at all nervous. I don't think I would be so confident to pierce if it hadn't been for Laurie and his team at Slack Alice's.  Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome and for the excellent training I have received.
Kind regards

Had a lovely time on the body piercing course, Laurie is very knowledgeable. The place is set up great. The girls are lovely.
I’ve really enjoyed my four days here, I will slightly miss them. I have learnt a great deal from the course. Going into the course four days ago a total beginner, I feel now very confident if I can pinch it I can pierce it.
