Membership Application

Registration Overview

We're excited that you're applying for membership with the Association of Professional Piercers. Your application will be sent to our Membership Committee for review, which generally takes 6-8 weeks.

You can ask questions in the Future Members group. Membership dues will be billed upon acceptance and must be paid to activate your membership.


Preparing to apply? Take a look at the Membership Requirements - use this as a checklist to gather all personal and environmental criteria PRIOR to beginning the application process; partial applications are not accessible by applicants or administrators.

All piercing applicants (Associate-Piercer and Business) will be required to complete an individual questionnaire before your application will be reviewed. This is a separate system; please follow the provided link.

All Associate and Business applications will be charged a $50 application fee to finalize the application. This is not considered part of your annual membership dues.
