Help me open my dream body piercing shop

Hello! My name is Lauren and I have just finished completing a body piercing course (some of the piercings I did are shown in my cover photo.) I have been passionate about body piercings since a very young age, having gotten my first ear piercings at age 4. Since then, I have accumulated 21 piercings in total and a large amount of knowledge and experience in aftercare, healing, and how to treat issues that arise. This course has elevated my knowledge further, giving me the capability to perform a wide range of piercings, such as ear, nose, lip, nipple, navel and dermal. I also have a detailed knowledge of sterilisation processes and legalities, allowing me to deliver a high quality and professional service. My dream is to be able to open my own body piercing shop and share my passion with future clients, to deliver beautiful piercings to be enjoyed for years.

I am in the process of saving to open my own store, and will need approximately £5000 in order to do so; however, due to an ongoing battle with mental health issues over my teenage years, I am currently unable to work a full time job, so can't save as much as I would like to. I would deeply appreciate any support you are able to offer, and any donation, big or small would mean so much to me and allow me to take another step closer to my dream. This will give me the opportunity to put rent down on a store and progress with necessary building work and the purchase of high quality piercing and sterilisation equipment. Thank you so much for reading my story, I can't wait to get started and put my dream into reality!
