What is the APP?
What does it mean to me, the client?
The Association of Professional Piercers (APP)(https://www.safepiercing.org/) is an international health and safety non-profit, voluntary organization. It’s governed by a voluntary elected Board of Directors (https://www.safepiercing.org/board_members.php) that freely shares information to help members, piercers, health care professionals, legislators, health inspectors, and the general public receive the best and most up-to-date information on body piercing.
To be a member of the APP, a studio and the piercers themselves must meet and/or exceed strict APP Member Requirements (https://www.safepiercing.org/membership_requirements.php), such as stocking a specific quality of jewelry, staying up-to-date on CPR, First Aid, and Blood Borne Pathogens training, running spore tests on all sterilization equipment, and more!
Needless to say, if you see a studio employing members of the APP, you know you’re in good hands and being taken care of staff members who care. Every single employee of Black Hole Body Piercing are either Associate or Business members that adhere to the APP guidelines and keep their education on body piercing up to date!
