The Point is the official newsletter of the Association of Professional Piercers (APP).
Originally a pseudo-commercial (in that it was for sale, but not in stores) print magazine released by the APP, The Point is probably the first magazine that can lay claim to being a true body piercing trade journal. The Point contains both information on the APP and its business (ie. convention reports, member info, etc.) but also cutting edge product reviews, legislation, technical information, and procedural articles, as well as related articles on history and culture from time to time.
The Point, in both current issues and back issues, is available for free download from the APP website.
