What Our Students SAY...

I really, really enjoyed Olly’s bevel theory class in particular – really informative! We actually got to have a play around with blades; I learn through doing so that helped a ton!
I had such a ‘click’ moment in your class and since I’ve been back at work everything is coming out beautifully. Thank you, Olly.
I took your bevel theory class at conference, and I’ve started using blades in some piercings. Your class has been a huge help – I can’t believe how much it all makes sense.
I had a few lightbulb moments, the content was clear and informative. I was excited to take home what I’d learned and put it into practice.
