Here at Holier Than Thou, we are proud to house Manchester’s ONLY members of the UKAPP and we are the largest UKAPP member studio in the whole of the UK, being home to 5 members and one apprentice.

UKAPP stands for the United Kingdom Association of Professional Piercers.

This is a challenging membership to obtain and includes rigorous tests and specific requirements to prove that we are performing piercings hygienically, safely, and properly according to the very highest industry standards.

Since 2015 the Holier than thou team have attended the UKAPP international piercing educational conference and our own Helen teaches classes there each year.

We stock some of the best quality jewellery from high-end manufacturers from around the world. UKAPP members are internationally regarded as up-to-date, trustworthy, knowledgeable experts in this field.
