Piercing apprenticeships at 7 Soul Tattoos are based on the traditional piercing apprenticeship model with an increased focus on ongoing professional development, practice assessments, and real work experience. And yet, we pride ourselves on being different from a traditional apprenticeship. We stand by our commitment to ink mastery by providing clients with the warmest, most welcoming tattoo and piercing studio they've ever experienced—and our apprenticeships are just as warm and inclusive. We strive to ensure that our clients love their experience at 7 Soul Tattoos by providing high-quality piercings with world-class customer service. We mentor our apprentices so they learn the skills to do just that. We provide apprenticeships with dignity to artists from all walks of life, and as a result, we have one of the most open and diverse artistic communities in the tattoo and piercing industry.
What You Learn in Your Piercing Apprenticeship
Our established piercers, who came through the program themselves, will teach you everything you need to know for each procedure from start to finish in this eight-week course. Topics of study include how to use calipers and gauge wheels; jewelry measuring and gauging; jewelry choices for a piercing; and jewelry quality choices. Your piercing apprenticeship gives you hands-on experience, practice, and supervised piercing.
