Scalp Micropigmentation is the fastest growing solution to hair loss world wide. As the treatment gains more popularity, the industry in Australia is taking off at an exciting and rapid rate! 


Being an SMP artist is truly rewarding: you have the potential to change lives, be creative, be your own boss and make a great income. Our students come from all backgrounds and life stages! 


Your training is the foundation to your artistry and one of the most important investments in your SMP career - to be a great artist you must train with great artists.


Inkd SMP is one of the busiest SMP specialist studios in Australia - we're booked out 6 days a week, 2 clients a day, with a 2 month waitlist at most times.. When you train with us, you’re training with SMP artists who perform hundreds of treatments per year, we aren’t just trainers! 

Our small group training is led by AJ and assisted by Ange. They both work with 10-15 different clients every week and have experience with all types of skin tones and hair loss levels. Aj's realism technique and versatility with all treatment styles has made her one of Australia’s leading SMP artists since 2019.

Our course was designed to cover skills and advanced techniques that AJ and Ange use daily to get natural, realistic results for every client. We’ll cover everything from the technique and essential theory, to background knowledge of the skin, anatomy and treatments. We see dozens of SMP repair jobs yearly and teach you not only what to do, but what NOT to do!
