I arrived in the Netherlands as a refugee from Bosnia 20 years ago with a small child.

We didn't know anyone, didn't have any money and didn't speak the language. We lived in a small village, Willemsoord.

We dreamed of opening a store in the Center of Amsterdam.

It all started with selling jewelry.

We quickly ran out of money and at times our babysitter would make more than we did. People started asking if we sold piercings. We had no idea what they meant and what kind of piercings people wanted. We decided to delve into it and branched out into selling piercings. We would soon found out that we had made the right decision. This is how our company Piercings Works was born.

But soon enough... we were asked to pierce people and change their jewelry ...

We met a very nice man who owned a studio in Alkmaar. He believed in my talent and I took a 3-hour piercing course and used my husband Mensur as my test subject. After the course we had the opportunity to have our own piercing studio pop-up at Pinkpop, Europe’s largest music festival at the time. 

Those three days at Pinkpop were more of a challenge for me than the war I fled!

We soon found out that the course we had taken had been way short and did not provide us with the necessary tools we needed to do our work to the best of our abilities.

In hindsight, we should have practiced a lot more and received more support on how to problem solve in order to have been more prepared. 

We realized that the course wasn’t comprehensive and serious enough. This is why we decided to offer a course that covers everything you need to know. 

I wish this course had been around when we needed it!

Student experiences after 2 years: 

A friend of mine owns a make-up studio and was looking for a piercing artist. Due to a dispute at my old job, I was looking for something new and this course caught my eye. I wondered where I wanted to be in a year's time and knew I wanted to start my own business. The fact that I liked piercing only accelerated the process. I could take the time to learn more about it and my old employer paid for the course. Now I have my own company in my girlfriend's salon in IJsselstein. We were even taught how to apply for a permit from the GGD and Ira still helps me every now and then when I have questions. I can  just send her a Whatsapp message. If I had not taken this course I would not have been able to start working for myself.

" I had already gained some experience by working at Piercings Works because I could watch and learn about different piercing materials and sizes. When I was hired here last year I also took the course. During the course I learned many new things and gained a lot of knowledge. Everything was explained well and in great detail and Ira took plenty of time for everything. I wanted to learn to pierce at a younger age but had to wait because I was younger than 18. It was a very valuable addition. Even if you already have some experience.

I now work in the shop but want to start piercing here or gain experience at another studio. What I also really liked was the fact that people of all ages participated in the course and it appealed to all kinds of different people.

It’s an investment that will pay off in no time!"
