The annual APT Trade Show and Expo jammed with seminars, classes and tools of the trade. Tattooists and Suppliers sharing and giving back!
Founded in 1992 by like-minded Tattooists, not for what they could get, but for what they could give back, with the goal of providing resources and shared information to allow Tattooists to practice their trade safely.
The APT is available as a resource for information, to you the Professional Tattooist,
when working with your local Health Dept. or explaining safe tattooing to your customer.
