What is the APP?

The Association of Professional Piercers (APP) is an international health and safety organization. It is a nonprofit voluntary alliance dedicated to the dissemination of information about body piercing. Governed by a voluntary elected Board of Directors, the APP is a united group of piercing professionals that freely shares information to help fellow members, piercers, health care professionals, legislators, health inspectors, and the general public get the best and most up-to-date information about body piercing.

As new members we are excited to connect with a network of professionals to further our skills as piercers and pass along the best possible operating procedures, techniques, jewelry, aftercare / procedure products and experiences along to all our amazing clients!

Staying current is an important aspect of the Honest to Goodness ideal and are grateful to have this opportunity.

One of the other benefits of membership is the network of piercers all over the world who uphold the same industry standards. If you are looking for a member near you, utilize the member locator on the association’s website to find someone close.
