Welcome to the Alliance. This is YOUR organization.....

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.

Public Relations

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.

Prevention of Disease Transmission for the Tattooist

The Alliance of Professional Tattooists Inc. is the originator of the Tattoo specific Blood Borne Pathogens course. A six hour intensive course approved for OSHA compliance.

Safe Art-Creative Art

Not only is the APT a resource of information to make safe Art, we also promote creative Art through our Artist Cooperative Sketch Books and Flash as well as the Annual Trade Show.

Online Training "Is Here!"

We realize you have a choice in BBP courses. The Online course is available Now!

 The APT is in the process of creating several online modules for BBP certification and Continuing  Education.


As a Member your vote elects the Board and your voice guides the Organization. Be involved. Join a committee, submit your Artwork, call or write the Home Office.

Annual Trade Show
