Why Body Piercing
- 83% of Americans have had their earlobes pierced.
- 33% of women with piercings choose the navel, and 19% choose the nose.
- 18% of men and 9% of women have their nipples pierced.
- 31% of piercings have had complications.
- .09% of piercings required hospitalization.
It's clear that piercing is popular, but it's also clear that the piercings themselves need to be properly performed for the best results. Infections caused by improperly cared for piercings, or tissue damage from improperly placed piercings are all serious concerns that piercers without training or experience may encounter or cause. Our body piercing courses do more than just train you on the proper technique; they also provide training on how to recognize when and where to perform a piercing, and what to do if a piercing should experience complications. While .09% of piercings requiring hospitalization may seem like a low number, consider that this could actually mean tens of thousands of people every year who need medical attention.
If you want to avoid those situations, and make sure that your shop and your career have the best reputation possible, you need to know what to do in every situation relating to piercing. With our body piercing course focused on safety, we can show you how to become a body piercer that can adapt to challenges, emergencies, and more, and operate under pressure. Everyone wants the perfect piercing, and we show you how to get it done.
A Skill for Life
Body piercers earn an average of $26,000 a year, which is a considerable sum of money for a skill that does not require college education. Piercers at the higher end of the spectrum can make as much as $60,000 per year. Neither figure accounts for those who choose both tattooing and piercing as their combined duty, nor does it cover tips that piercers receive from grateful customers. In fact, you'll find that piercing will bring you closer to your customers. People love to know where they can go to get a piercing that is well done, safe, and extremely attractive. They not only come back for work in the future, but they also recommend you to friends as well.
Being a piercer means getting a skill you can keep for life. You can make connections in the piercing and body modification world that will help you to network across the country. Piercing and tattoo shops can be found in every major city and in many small towns, meaning you'll be able to find work wherever you travel.
Most importantly, you'll be able to work toward a position of owning your own piercing shop, where you can earn $100,000 or more every year. While you have to start with the basic body piercing courses on proper piercing technique, it never hurts to build your career toward a goal. With our body piercing school, you'll learn about what it takes to be a proper piercer so that you can start a career you and your customers will love. We offer several different specialty courses on new styles and techniques of piercing, and information on new tools that you can use to make the piercing experience quick, easy, and as painless as possible for your clients. We give you the skills; you'll give us results.
