Welcome to the A.P.T. Website!
The Alliance of Professional Tattooists, Inc. is a nonprofit educational organization that was founded in 1992 to address the health and safety issues facing the tattoo industry. Up until that time, no organized effort to educate artists or standardize infection control procedures had been made and increased popularity was bringing the industry under the scrutiny of lawmakers and health officials. Recognizing the need for change, a group of concerned professionals formed APT and the work began. As a testimony to our success, look at tattoo advertising. In the early 90's, very few shops mentioned autoclave sterilization, sterile equipment or gloves. Now these procedures are standard.
