United Kingdom Association of Professional Piercers


Promoting Safe Piercing Through Education

The UKAPP was born out of the UK Piercer Meet Up (UKPMU). The UKPMU came together because the UK Government changed the legislation surrounding Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) to include Female Genital piercings. A group of piercers came together at an informal meet up in Newcastle to discuss what was needed to protect our industry and peoples rights to have the freedom to pierce their bodies. It was soon realised that an official organisation would be required to lobby the government.


It was also realised that as well as the FGM issues an official UKAPP would be able to tackle other issues within our industry and get our profession seen as a genuine lifelong vocation to be respected by outside industries.
