How to find or become a piercing expert:
When you are first thinking of getting a piercing on your body, one will have many questions. One of the first questions to come to mind will be who and where can I find an experienced piercer?
You could always get a contact from one of your friends who has previously gotten pierced, but here’s a better way to find one:
The Association of Professional Piercers (APP ; https://safepiercing.org/)
As the website states, they guarantee safety. If a piercer wants to join the association, it will take time to apply. This ensures that their studio is safe and clean. They are California-based, and an international non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination of vital health and safety information about body piercing to piercers, health care professionals, legislators, and the general public.
You can use the “find a member” function to search for someone in your area who participates. Although the website allows you to look for members in your area, they recommend searching by Zip code. If you know who you’re looking for, enter the name, studio, or other keyword in the keyword field.
Also, you can get some tips for after care from the website and “becoming a piercer” yourself. You can get assistance by watching videos, the magazine, or by attending an apprenticeship. The apprenticeship is defined as a specific period of guided progress through the basic, intermediate and advanced levels of piercing training.
