We are one of the few Accredited Body Piercing Training facilities in the UK. We strive to give you as much knowledge as possible so you may continue on this path. 

Please remember that being Accredited is vital to gain Insurance and also gives the comfort in knowing that the training given is at a very high standard. 

No to Piercing Guns, There are MANY reasons why NOT. With permission form this girls Mother we were honoured to use her picture, pierced with needles and never even moved. The smile says it all

With permission from this girls Mother we just wanted to show the joy in her face after NOT having her ears pierced with a Gun. There are many reasons why you should not have your ears pierced by a gun, here are some of them :- 


1 . The Gun can't be totally sterile, blood waste on the handle may cause cross contamination which could be serious. 

2. The gun fires the stud way too tight into an ear, not giving any room for healing and also causes bruising and sometimes damaging cartilage. 

3. The studs themselves are often very cheap materials creating allergy responses leading to infection due to scratching. 

4. Under trained staff with no idea on health and safety and contraindications. 

5. The gun itself can get stuck in ear when piercing with it. 

 At Punkture Body Piercing Academy we only use high quality Titanium jewelry for every piercing we perform. We recommend that every piercer uses titanium initially to cut down on any allergy issues.

We are an Accredited Provider and our Piercing Course is also Accredited, this is essential for you to  obtain your Piercing Insurance.

We will then run through all aspects of the correct jewellery materials, lengths and clamps as well as needle sizes and marking up of approx 16 piercings .

We run through the procedure of the following :-



We will give a booklet with all that is learnt on the course which we expect you will read on the 1st evening ...

You will run through some practicals throughout the day and practice marking up on each other, holding the clamps in the correct manner and practicing setting up the studio.


The following day you will have min of 5 volunteers to pierce per student, you are welcome to arrange your own but we will provide. Not only will you pierce you will watch the whole procedure. Our piercer is at hand every second and will take you through it in a slow controlled relaxed manner .


There will be a scoring system throughout the weekend to make sure you listen and follow instructions as best you can .


Everyone so far has loved the course, you will hear us over and over saying take things slow once you leave the studio...start small gain confidence and you will grow as we have seen with many previous students .

We do supply volunteers but we would like each student to bring at least one model for the second day. 

But do not worry if this is a problem.

Cheryl Allan  recommends Punkture Tattoo and Body Piercing Studio.

Attended the training course this weekend and what an experience! absolutely loved every minute of it, Jay and Marie were brilliant every step of the way and really lovely people, full of knowledge and experience and went through everything in fine detail to make sure everything was explained and instructed properly. The actual hands on training was brilliant too lots of different piercings to do and experience, i was very nervous on the spot but was made to feel at ease and gain some confidence I can't wait to get up and running, thanks both again x

Abbie Bircumshaw  recommends Punkture Tattoo and Body Piercing Studio

Recently attended their academy to complete a piercing course and it was amazing start to finish. Marie and Jay are both are like a piercing oracle and answered anything you could think of. The amount of knowledge they cram into the weekend is impressive. You’ll walk in nervous, and leave with a sense of confidence knowing you can do it if you follow the steps they have shown you. Can’t wait to start off small and build my way up and let you know how I’m doing. The difference between 1 mm is forever engraved into my brain

Thank you so much guys. I’m sure I’ll be back in touch at some point
