body piercing


Question Posted Wednesday March 28 2007, 1:17 pm

Hi.

After thinking long and hard about what I want to do with my life, I've decided I want to be a body piercer.

I love body piercings, and are facinated with them, so why not do something I love for a living?

Now, I've done some research and have came up with nothing, How do I get started with piecing?

I doubt you can walk into a tattoo shop and say, "Yo, I wanna be a piercer."

Is there any classes or anything I have to do?

Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Everyone else is giving you some pretty good advice and for sure, you should look all of that up.
I just wanted to let you know that sales associates at places like Claires and Ardenes know how to pierce and are trained to do it. If you're younger, maybe that's a good entry-level position to work your way up in.

EDIT: I'm glad I helped and yes, please let me know :) but if you could do it in my forum instead of my inbox, it would be much appreciated. I just don't want to clog up the system.

Although you cannot walk into a tattoo shop and announce that you are there to be a piercer you can still talk to the people who work there.

You should pick a tattoo/body-piercing parlor out of the phone book and call them and tell them tat this is something you want to do. Let them know how old you are as well.

Ask them how you get into the business and what courses you might need. Some of them might be good enough to let you watch what they do and explain how it's all done as they do it.

I'm not sure what city you are in but if you ask me a question through my inbox I can provide you with information on the best people in your area to contact about this. I'm up on that info as well as Web sites on body piercing and tatoos.
