Continuing Education

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” ― Socrates
“Anything worth doing is worth doing right.” – Hunter S. Thompson

Understanding that our industry is constantly evolving, we take every measure to stay abreast of the latest trends and research for both style and technique. We take the safety of our clients and ourselves very seriously, which is why we make further education a priority. Adorn piercers and tattooists maintain current licenses issued by the State of Oregon.

We meet or exceed all licensing requirements

All our professional body piercers are also proud members of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP) and take annual continuing education classes on everything from Bedside Manner to Advanced Ear Projects and Anatomy.

Our award-winning tattoo artists take full advantage of the classes and seminars that are available at Tattoo Conventions around the country. They explore topics such as Advanced Cover-up Techniques, Illustrative Tattooing and Color Theory as taught by industry leaders.

As part of our commitment to keeping you safe, all our employees — including our counter staff — take yearly classes on Blood Borne Pathogens, CPR, and First Aid.

As an Adorn Body Art client, you can be confident that you will get the best possible tattoos and piercings.
