Ever since first learning to pierce, I’d been given an APP manual to study and therefore heard of this non-profit association doing this amazing educational and safety work across the seas. Naturally, I aspired to become a member. Blue Lotus achieved this in 2015 and is proud to be the first UK member in nearly 20 years!
Needless to say, founding the UKAPP had always been a priority for me. The standards created by the local health authorities in the UK are at best sub-standard. Not through any fault, simply this is a vast industry with a huge amount of technical information required. Piercing had been escalating in popularity for some time and higher standards needed to be set.
