Rich will really teach you not only how to pierce but how to be safe while doing it. His knowledge with anatomy and the healing process is at the same level as people practicing medicine for years. He is able to relate to everyone he meets and proves that with random people. He is a great educator and even a mentor. In his class he doesn’t only show you how to learn the craft, he shows you that you can talk to anyone that walks through the door. Even after his class he does not leave any of his students behind. If you have no medical knowledge or a lot, there is always something to learn. I would highly recommend his class for anyone who is looking to start a new career or new studio.
