There are schools but they are kind of few and far between. I think they are growing in popularity but your best bet is probably to gather some references from the subjects in your portfolio and go looking for an apprenticeship. I know tattoo artists apprentice, I would assume piercers work the same way. And if you can't find anyone willing to train you, look for a shop looking for a receptionist/store manager/whatever and get your foot in the door that way.
