Welcome to
Primal Instinct

Primal Instinct Body Piercing School is the first school for piercersĀ in the Massachusetts/ New Hampshire area, and is owned and operated by Richard Warner. Primal Instinct Body Piercing and Tattoo studios are among the most trusted and qualified studios in the country. Richard was frustrated by the lack of information available many years ago when he began his journey to become a Piercing Practitioner. Some years later, Richard has prepared to share the vast knowledge and love for body art that he has acquired with a select group of potential piercing practitioners.

We now offer courses in many cities across the country. Sign up now for a class near you. If there is not a class in your area email Rich and arrange one. He will travel anywhere in the United States or Canada for groups of five or more to share his vast knowledge.

Our focus is to train candidates to be a medically safe piercer. We do embrace the spiritual side of the craft but we feel that is a journey that you should take on your own as well. That being said, this course is not only designed to teach you to pierce but to also teach you all aspects of the business that you will need to know to start up and run a successful piercing business of your own.

It is also the intent of our courses to bridge the gap between the medical community and the body art community by offering education to medical and other none piercing professionals. See informational course for the non-piercer

Always feel free to contact us by phone @ 781 324 6565 or send us a message here.

We look forward to working with you!

Why Choose Primal Instinct Over Other Options?

Primal instinct has been in business for well over twenty years and has trained successful professional piercers working all over the country. As a Primal Instinct student, you learn from one instructor from start to finish. We do not hire outside people to teach the course that we have developed.

My objective in offering this course is to provide clients and the industry with more well educated practitioners. With a vision of practicing in a safe professional manor, our number one priority is public safety and comfort. We do not believe that a person can become a safe piercing practitioner through online or video training. Quite simply, you can not learn from a video as you are watching it. It is not watching you. It is not guiding you. With live hands-on training the instructor has the ability to study you and learn how you need to learn as an individual. We’ll find any habits or motor functions that may make you or your client unsafe and help you work those quirks out. One cookie cutter formula does not work for every candidate as they have to be taught the way they learn best.

We do not treat students like a typical apprenticeship would. There is no hazing, no derogatory names and any cleaning done is to teach you proper septic technique. Also unlike a typical apprenticeship we have the luxury of time and repetition as we are not asking a client to be patient and hang around. This enables you to learn in order.

The other potential problem with a typical apprenticeship is even the most accomplished piercers may not be good at teaching. Teaching is what we do, if we bring something unique to the table it is an ability to study you to find out what makes you mentally comfortable and to feel as you are becoming part of something. You will absorb the material better and you will become a better piercing practitioner as a result of our training.
