Some of our Past Students from Our 2 Day Body Piercing Training
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.
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 cant 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 fro healing and also 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.

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 cant wait to get up and running, thanks both again x
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
