    Exclamation Trainee piercer here, very confused :-/

    Hi everyone
    Trainee piercer here, I’m starting to work on customers and I had one who wanted both sides of her navel pierced. She already had her bottom done and wanted horizontal piercings on the side. This was no problem and the piercings looked fantastic afterwards. My friend loved them so much that she wanted me to pierce her belly but the needle just wasn’t going through as much pressure as I put on it. Is this because I needed to pinch less skin in the forceps to make it thinner? I wasn’t clamping up much at all. Why were those needles refusing to go through at all costs? I’ve watched countless videos today and I just can’t see what I was doing wrong?

    Hi, thank you for taking the time to respond. No mentor around at the time, I was feeling pretty confident. Obviously I terminated the procedure. I will have a chat with my mentor when hes recovered from the seasonal cold

    You're more than welcome and sorry I can't be any more help. Without being there or knowing how you were trained etc it's not an easy one to answer anyway! Hope he's better soon

    Also, it would be great to get some action on the professional piercers' part of the forums
