Body Piercing Apprenticeship

We are now accepting applications for a body piercing apprentice!

(Very) minimum eligibility requirements include:

  • 18+, with valid ID

  • 1-1.5 year commitment to the unpaid apprenticeship, which will include (at least):1200 working hours, 100 observation hours, and performing 50 piercings

  • It should go without saying, but applicant must be a reliable, self-motivated, trustworthy, creative, drug-free, team player. 

The application and selection process is a lengthy and complicated one. We want to make sure that not only is the apprentice a good fit for the studio, but that the studio and body piercing mentor are the right fit for the apprentice. 

The first step in the process is to submit a resume and a 2-4 page Personal Statement detailing why you want to be a body piercer. Please attach these documents to an email containing a short introduction with all of your contact information (full name, address, phone number). Emails should be sent to If your resume and statement meet our criteria, we will then contact you within 1-2 weeks to fill out the formal application/questionnaire and schedule an interview. 

Pure Imagination Arts follows the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) Apprenticeship Guidelines for our Piercing Apprenticeship Curriculum.
