New Courses

We have only gone and done it again and created the benchmark body piercing course in the UK. In a period where other training providers are shortening the length of their courses and increasing the price we have done the total opposite. Throughout the last year we have invested heavily in understanding what our students really want and need. This research has bought us to the conclusion that most body piercing courses are too short. Students that have attended a 3 day body piercing course in the UK feel their skills are not competent enough for them to continue piercing. For this reason we have extended the body piercing course length.
