As of September 2014, there are no brick-and-mortar training centers for body piercing in Manchester. However, it is possible to receive training to learn body piercing through UK Distance Learning College. This college offers a Body Piercing Professional Diploma course for those wishing to pursue this line of work.
The course in body piercing costs £1,115.00 and takes approximately 2 to 4 weeks. However, candidates preferring to move at a slower pace have a full year to complete the course. The course covers navel, nipple, lip, ear, tongue, eyebrow, septum and nostril piercings. Genital piercings are not covered in this course.
