    That's too bad...I never got licensed (duh, I was 15 LOL) all I did was get a basic 101 from a pro piercer I knew, but I definately did make some money here and there....I practiced on myself.....I don't think it's really that hard, all I really did was picture the way I wanted to jewelry to sit inside the piercing and pierced accordingly....My friends all LOVED me, I was a parent's worst nightmare, which I don't understand cause I would rather my kid got pierced by someone who knows what they're doing rather than shoving a safety pin or worse through their bodies.....I dunno. So did u work in a shop???

    = worked in 3 different ones. I was always the only girl which sucked. I got realy verbally abused at the 1st one. Boss was always drunk. Went to a spinoff shop of that one...same deal. 3rd one my boss cheated on his girl w me. We split up and i got together w my husband...so he fired us both. Pretty lame eh?

    yeah, I'd have to say that's pretty pathetic....and guys accuse women of being petty....whatever. I always wanted to work in a shop, but I never got the money together to get my license. I wanted to open my own shop, since my hubby does tattoos, but that never happened. Now I'm a 21 yr old stay at home mom with nothing to do but watch chickens, ducks, dogs, and a kid. Oh, and play Halo of course LOL!!!
