Introducing Our Talented Scalp Micropigmentation Specialists at Inkd SMP
Introducing the one and only Ana James
As the owner and lead trainer at Inkd SMP, I specialise in ultra-realistic hairlines and undetectable blends. I'm a qualified Cosmetic Tattoo Artist with a background in brow work and microblading. My passion for fine detailed artistic work and desire to perform life-changing transformations led me to Scalp Micropigmentation. In 2019, I completed my initial SMP training in Australia and have since taken five additional international SMP up-skilling and colour theory courses.
Running my business INKD by AJ, I quickly became one of the most sought-after and renowned artists in Australia, completing over 2500+ SMP sessions to date. Recognising the need for more realistic and better quality results in the industry, I expanded and grew the business into the talented Inkd SMP team.
I now serve as a trainer and mentor to new and experienced SMP artists across the world, teaching monthly student classes between Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, and online students as far as the USA, South America and UK.
I'm who artists come to see when they want to level up their SMP results and knowledge!
I go by the name of Ange Monitto
I have always been passionate about all things creative and hold a Diploma of Advertising and Graphic Design. For 10 years, I worked as an Art Director and Marketing Manager with multiple world-renowned brands, including Crumpler, Domain, and Cotton On.
Having experienced hair loss myself, I can relate first-hand to what clients are going through. After meeting Ana and learning about SMP, I decided it was the career change I wanted to pursue – to help improve the confidence and lives of those also suffering from hair loss.
With a background in art and painting, I have the keen eye for the detail needed to create ultra-realistic hairlines. I work alongside AJ, assisting in training students and helping them develop their skills while demonstrating essential techniques that I once learned as a beginner from AJ.
The name's Brooke Tucci
I've been in the cosmetic industry since 2010 as both a trainer and therapist. I consider what I do more than a job - it's an extension of myself.
I completed my initial training at BHA Hair and Beauty Academy and have undertaken many other short courses over the years to keep my skills and knowledge up to date with the latest tech and services, including laser treatments, skin therapy, and makeup artistry. I'm a skin specialist and am passionate about making people feel and look the best they can.
My SMP training began with partial theory at Hairline Solutions in 2020. I completed my hands-on practical, development, and skills refinement at Inkd SMP in 2021. Because of my background in beauty, I was a natural fit as an SMP artist and was chosen among a number of other aspiring artists to join the Inkd SMP team in 2022.
Mi nombre es Corey Box
I began training in SMP in March of 2022 and completed additional hands-on certification with AJ and Ange. Due to my skill, dedication to the art, professionalism, and fun-loving vibe, I was chosen for an exclusive apprenticeship with AJ and a pro artist spot on the Inkd SMP team.
I'm no stranger to personal development and understand that "if you look good, you feel good." I'm passionate about health and fitness, having trained for over 10 years and coached others to help them become the best versions of themselves.
I love learning new skills and improving my knowledge through online courses, workshops, books, podcasts, and YouTube University. When my friend Gena, a brow artist, told me about SMP, I was immediately hooked and knew I wanted to help people through SMP.
Ahoy there, mateys!
You can call me Hannah Howell
I am a qualified hair stylist and salon owner with over 9 years of experience in the hairdressing industry.
Having helped many people cope with hair loss behind the chair in my profession, I have a sensitive understanding of what leads people to seek SMP treatments.
I will help you feel at ease and confident in your decision in choosing Inkd SMP to start your new lease on life!
ko Ardon England ahau.
Located in Wellington, New Zealand, I am the Inkd SMP affiliate partner and owner of SMP Aotearoa. As a Māori SMP artist, I specialise in perfected, undetectable, and natural results. I was born and raised in Whanganui, Aotearoa (New Zealand).
With a background in makeup and dance, I pride myself on my attention to detail and perfectionist nature when it comes to my mahi (work). I take pride in my culture and bring a Te Ao Māori approach to my business.
Having suffered from a receding hairline at a young age and trying to hold onto my hair, I can relate to what my SMP customers are going through. I had my own SMP treatments done about two years ago, and it has changed my life. It was at that moment I knew I wanted to make massive changes in other people's lives, and so I began my own journey learning and perfecting the art of SMP, which I now share with others.
O lo'u igoa o Mandy Tapurau
As a proud Samoan and New Zealand-born scalp micropigmentation (SMP) artist, I have established Phantom Ink SMP in my hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. My journey began with informative training through Ink SMP, which equipped me with the skills to specialize in scalp micropigmentation techniques that create natural and realistic-looking results.
My passion for this industry stems from a deep desire to help the people of Aotearoa regain confidence in their own hair loss journey, as I understand the impact that hair loss can have on an individual's self-esteem.
Throughout my career, I have always stayed true to my down-to-earth vibe. I bring my unique style and creative flair, never shying away from being my authentic self. I believe that this personal touch allows me to understand my clients' individual needs.
Phantom Ink SMP is not just a business for me; it's a platform for me to make a meaningful impact on people's lives, by helping my clients regain their confidence and embrace their unique style.
