Body Piercing Course

Here at the London piercing academy we don't believe in breaking courses down to spread out qualifications just to gain more profit. We offer an all inclusive course covering all cannula, dermal anchor, and surface piercings combined. This is a far less complicated and cost effective process giving the student an affordable way of becoming a body piercer. Our courses cover all aspects of piercing techniques and demonstrations, piercing and studio equipment, supply routes, business advice and legalities.

Students will be given a step by step referral manual, gradually building a detailed account of procedures. All our students will need to gain satisfactory theory and practical knowledge to obtain a professional diploma on completion.

With part theory and part practical lessons this interactive and innovative course guarantees all aspects of piercing covered thoroughly. The London piercing academy offers you a lifetime of support with fully qualified tutors always on standby to help with any advice either on line, postal or by a personal tutor on call. Our body piercing course is run over 4 days and covers all above the waist piercings and also includes surface piercings and dermal piercings.

Booking and payments

Our body piercing courses can be booked over the phone by calling: +447960924944.

The full course fee is £650.00 of which a £150.00 booking fee is required in order to ensure your place on any of our courses. This booking fee is only returnable if you cancel your place within 14 working days before the start of your course.

The remainder of the balance of £550 must be paid on or before the first day of the course.

Due to the nature of our course and the small groups we teach, it is each students responsibility to attend in a timely and appropriate manner. We cannot allow any of the other students learning to be affected as it would be unfair. If any cancellations are made with less then 10 working days notice, the student whom has entered into an agreement by paying the deposit and/or confirming their attendance via email etc, will be required to pay the full course fee as we would incur a loss, which could have been prevented by being offered to another prospective student with sufficient notice.
