ORILLIA, Ontario, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Paul Cooper is taking tattooing and body piercing to a new level. The award-winning artist and president of BodyCo has made it his mission to clean up the industry with his extreme sanitary measures. He's also offering the first-ever franchises in the body art industry.
"A BodyCo franchise is an attractive conversion for existing shops," said Cooper. "It's also ideal for anyone wanting to be part of a rapidly growing and highly lucrative business. No previous experience is necessary, only the drive to succeed and a love of body art."
BodyCo offers clients the safest tattooing and body piercing procedures in the industry and the highest-quality body art jewelry. Artists use the "New World Standard" method, which eliminates cross-contamination, regardless of individual artistic styles. BodyCo's unique methods have amazed healthcare professionals, gained clients worldwide and maintained a rapidly growing list of loyal clientele.
"Our franchisees will bring safe body art to their city," Cooper said. "We created a new method of body art procedures that is more stringent than Universal Precautions alone. This keeps artists and clients risk-free of contracting and spreading diseases. For further protection, we incorporated non-carcinogenic, non-corrosive, biodegradable sterilants and cleaners."
Cooper currently has two locations, and his goal is to have 2,000 shops around the world within 10 years. Since tattooing is one of the fastest-growing retail ventures, and tattoos have become mainstream, his goal is very realistic. After all, more than 36 percent of Americans ages 18 to 40 have at least one tattoo.
"Over 20,000 parlors operate in the United States, with a new shop opening every day," said Cooper. "It's time to change the industry's irresponsibility and alert them of their mistakes. We provide a safe, drug/alcohol-free, creative environment for artists to develop their abilities and careers. It's personally rewarding with our 'cleaner, safer, better' way of operation."
A BodyCo franchise offers many advantages over the competition and other franchise opportunities. The business is recession-resistant, it offers a high demand/profit margin compared to other industries, the existing competition is weak, and it's a ground-floor opportunity.
Franchisees receive over 70 hours of initial training at corporate headquarters in Ontario and on-site. Training covers all aspects of the operation and includes instructional materials. Franchisees also receive site location and grand-opening assistance, ongoing support, refresher-training programs for managers or employees, and periodic visits from corporate office. Practicing artists are easily retrained and reeducated with a higher level of safety.
"We offer a safer, easier to learn, revolutionary new way of performing body art," Cooper said. "It's much easier to tattoo and run a studio using our proven methods."
