Body Piercing

Body piercing technicians must complete and possess a certificate of successful completion for these courses each year:

  • Blood-borne pathogens

  • American Red Cross First Aid Certification
  • Adult Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Certification from either the American Red Cross or the American Heart Association.
