How Do You Find a Good Piercer?
Did you ever wonder...
Having just gotten some fresh ink, the topic of tattoo/piercing shops are top of mind. Today, we'll talk a bit about ways that you can evaluate a piercer to know if they're a good fit for you.
Look for APP (Association of Professional Piercers) Certification - APP is an organization that is dedicated to health and safety when it comes to getting modded. This shows the shop/piercer is dedicated to continued piercing education
If a piercer isn't APP certified, that's ok too! There are other things to consider as well
Cleanliness: Is the shop clean? Do you see an autoclave? Are the piercers/tattoo artists using gloves? Are there animals running around lol? Pay attention to your surroundings!
Is the piercer kind and informative? Do they make you feel comfortable when you enter the shop? Attitude is important. Huge red flag if they’re pressuring you in any way.
Check out their portfolio - Instagram, Facebook, other social media. Do the piercings look good? If they don’t look good in the photo, they probably won’t look great when healed.
