This event takes place in the Assembly Room of Worksop Town Hall, Bassetlaw District Council, Potter Street, Worksop, S80 2AH.

There are an increasing number of people in the UK indulging in all four areas of skin piercing activity. Tattoo’s, cosmetic piercing, electrolysis and acupuncture. In addition new fashion trends have seen a whole set of new procedures such as micro blading and micro pigmentation.

All four areas of skin piercing pose a potential risk of infection and across the UK, there has been a reported* steady rise in infection associated with tattooing and skin piercing and in addition there has been a reported* rise in allergic reactions.

Skin Piercing legislation differs across the UK as does the registration system.

To keep up to speed with the new trends, caselaw and methodology, the Institute of Licensing has updated this course to consolidate best practice and include new advice and explain the current trends found in many salons and parlours across England and Wales. All four areas are covered in this extensive one day course.

The Institute of Licensing accredits this course for 4 hours CPD. Course Ref:ATP77815.
£165 + VAT for IoL Members.
£247+ VAT for non-members including complimentary membership til end March 2021.
