Piercing Apprenticeship Wanted

I have apprenticed for a little over a year and was forced into piercing for nearly 8 months due to poor circumstance. In that time I learned the “theory” of piercing, sterilization, cleanlieness and risks. I was recently relieved of my position as a body piercer due to complaints of not being provided with necessary tools and equipment such as proper jewelry (or any at all), gloves, needles, etc. I would like to see that my hard work and sacrifices weren’t for nothing. If possible, I’d like to find a mentor willing to teach me how to properly Pierce and maintain a position as a body piercer in a professional environment. I have a portfolio ready upon request.
