My name is Holly Hourigan I'm a professional body modification artist. I am originally from North West London and I have been working within the tattoo and body modification industry for 10 years now, I have been based in Sheffield for the last 5 years.
I currently work at one of the busiest studios in the UK, where we are regularly performing up to 50 piercings per day. I have worked extremely hard in order to develop and hone my skills over the course of my career. I have experience performing all body piercing and numerous modifications such as earlobe reconstruction and scarification as well as silicone implants and magnetic implants.
From a very young age, body piercing and body modification was something that intrigued me and as soon as I found out that this was something people are able to do for a living I was hooked! I would regularly spend my weekends going to get new piercings as a teenager and this is something that continues to this day. I have even pierced myself on occasion!
I have attended numerous seminars on body modification and I am constantly learning and evolving throughout my career. I am now working in collaboration with the UK Official Tattoo Academy to teach students on our piercing courses. The piercing course will give you a solid foundation on which to progress and build a career for yourself as a body piercer.
Needless to say this isn't something for the squeamish or faint hearted but for those of you who have a genuine passion, a desire to learn and dedication to progressing within the industry, this is the course for you.
I will teach the essentials such as cross contamination prevention and sterilisation techniques as well as some basic piercing. This will include, ear work, oral piercings, nostrils, nipples & navels. I will go through the correct jewellery gauges/sizes, styles and placement and cover the do's and don'ts for each piercing covered. Customer care is of the upmost importance to me and I will be showing each and every student the best ways to put people at ease in a piercing room as well as how to deal with the potential risk of fainting and what to do should this scenario arise.
I hope that you will take the opportunity to join us on this course and allow us to start you on your way to a shinier future!
