Most artists would have been body piercers first. The recognised route is via an apprenticeship with an established studio. Courses helpful prior to this would be first aid, infection control, blood borne athogens or anatomy/biology.

I'm not sure how i'd feel about an artist doing tongue splits say, without any background other than a course. The routine of daily piercing provides valuable experience in safe working that isn't really able to be learnt from a book.

There are number of courses available for specific new or more advanced techniques, although many experienced piercers may begin to explore themselves with or without specific training.

I'd say start with piercing and do that for a long time before you branch out, you don't want to jump in stuff you aren't ready for or that just dishonors yourself and body modification.  Get an apprenticeship and you'll be cleaning alot of shit which is simple but the most important training.  Observe alot before you do something, and never stop asking alot of questions, alot alot is my recommendation.  Depends where you live too as to what you can legally do too.  In missouri you can only be certified to pierce, brand or tattoo, but that doesn't mean surgical stuff doesn't get done.
