Why should I join?
In this environment of increased competition, with so many people claiming to be expert piercers, the UKAPP will give you the credibility you need to stand out from the crowd. Our stringent criteria and high standards will remain in force. Those consumers who have learned to recognize the difference between so called professionals and UKAPP Members will seek you out. They will patronize UKAPP members for piercings and advice. When you become a member of the UKAPP you gain the trust of your clients and the support and respect of your peers. You will also have access to the collective knowledge and experience of your colleagues-including the most respected and experienced piercers worldwide, and a whole lot more.

- The power of numbers as a UKAPP member you have the strength of an organization behind you. When it comes to legislators, inspectors, and also clients, the power of numbers is not to be denied.
