The Apprentice Body Technician

We meet Ben Dennis, an Apprentice Body Piercer at Polymorph piercing studios. He shares what's involved in body piercing and what he's learnt being an apprentice. He shows us the preparation work needed for piercing.

He shares how he became an apprentice at Polymorph and the opportunities in piercing.

Polymorph is the first Australian shop to be a member of the Association of Professional Piercers. This is an international non-profit educational health and safety organisation dedicated to the dissemination of critical information about body piercing.

All piercers are highly trained in placement and aesthetics and all aspects of preventing cross contamination. There is a lot of social responsibility, health and safety and communicating with people that goes into being a good piercer.

To be a piercer, you have to read body language well because even the people who look tough get nervous. The people skills are paramount when advising and educating all different types of people about their post- pierce care. Achieving an infection free healing process is achievable if they listen to the important advice.
