    If you want to be a piercer you have to go to a studio in your area which you are willing to train at (as in they are professional, you've seen their work, you have personally been pierced by them etc) and tell them you are looking for an apprenticeship. Start going that shop regularly and getting pierced by them, do A LOT of research on the internet, by asking questions in that shop about jewellery, piercing technique, aeseptic technique, tools and equipment etc.
    Ask the studio if they need any help behind reception.
    Take biology classes, get your hepatitus jabs and they'll start to realise that you are serious about doing this job.

    You may want to work in Bristol but if you want an apprenticeship you have to be willing to travel in most cases and quite possibly relocate to another part of the country. In the end there are so many people out there looking for apprenticeships that very few people get them. If you want it enough you'll get somewhere eventually, but it might take months and even a few years to land a good apprenticeship at a professional studio.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi, pretty much do what the guy above said.
    BUT, your only 15. Most places wont even consider you until your 18.

    I'm afraid at 15 they won't even consider you, but if you really want to then go in, talk, be interested etc. When you're 18 you'll have more of an in than someone off the street.
