What is SMP 

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a life changing, game changing and transformative solution to hair loss.

It is a unisex cosmetic procedure that involves tattooing the scalp to create the illusion of new hair follicles. Pigment is deposited below the epidermis layer using a stippling or dotting method. 

Scalp micropigmentation offers a non-surgical and non-invasive solution for individuals seeking to address their hair loss and boost self-confidence. We can infill receding hairlines for a shaved look, or add density to thinning hair, including female hairlines. SMP provides an instant result and natural looking alternative to hair transplants or other hair restoration methods. It is long lasting and extremely effective! 

Meet your SMP Trainers

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's director and lead trainer Ana James (AJ) is a Calgary native who immigrated to Australia in 2013.

She is an internationally respected artist and SMP specialist educator, renowned for her signature 3D realism tattoo style.

Ana holds a Cert IV TAE Trainer and Assessor certification and is one of few PMU trainers in Australia who is qualified to create and design Accredited courses. She has designed Inkd SMP's training courses to be well structured, highly informative and on par with accredited programs. We cover all the key theory, advanced techniques and knowledge that other SMP trainings miss time and time again.
