Well thank you so much for the kind words.
I officially took my position in June at our piercing conference.
And yes, a huge thanks to all of the volunteers that do so much work for The APP and help spread the message for safe piercing.
I’ve had the privilege with working with quite a few of the people who volunteer on various committees, and it’s really inspiring to see how passionate they all are.
Apologies if this list isn’t 100% up to date, but just to give you all an idea, here’s a list of just some of the amazing people that volunteer a lot of their time (take a peak and see if you can’t find your piercer on this list!).

Anonymous said: So I have a bit of a problem. I live in Alaska and got my septum pierced while on vacation in Toronto. I don't know where to find jewelry, as online is my only option. Do you have any suggestions for websites that offer quality jewelry?
Since this is my personal page and not the APP blog I can be a bit more honest with you. I do not like online retailers for body jewelry. They undercut and undermine professional piercers and studios. I can appreciate the fact that you are in a remote area with not many local options, but why not contact the piercer in Toronto and have them mail you a piece? Or contact a respected piercer you see online, I myself could just mail you jewelry if you need it. Its important to talk to a piercer about the fit you want, options, materials, sizes, colors. Things you can’t really do by clicking buttons on a website.
That way you’d be supporting the industry and not a website that is trying to slash a few bucks off jewelry so they can snatch business away from shops.
