Tools of the Trade: Unveiling the SMP Artist's Arsenal

Behind every flawless Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) procedure lies a carefully selected set of tools and equipment. At MicroBarber, we believe in the power of precision and quality. Here's a glimpse into the tools that make the magic happen:

Tattoo Machine:

  • The heart of the SMP process, the tattoo machine is specially designed for SMP work. It delivers precise and consistent pigment application, ensuring the creation of realistic hair follicle impressions.


  • SMP needles come in various configurations, allowing for different hairline styles and techniques. The choice of needle plays a crucial role in achieving natural-looking results.

Station Supplies:

  • Sterilized and organized tools are essential for a safe and hygienic procedure. This includes disposable razors, gloves, alcohol wipes, and other supplies that maintain a sterile environment.

Pigment Kit:

  • SMP pigments are specially formulated to match natural hair colors. The selection of pigments is a nuanced art, with the SMP artist carefully customizing the blend to suit each client's unique skin tone and hair color.

Mannequins & Practice Skins:

  • Practice makes perfect. SMP artists hone their skills on mannequin heads and practice skins, allowing them to master techniques before working on real clients.

Training Manual:

  • A comprehensive guide that covers everything from the basics of SMP to advanced techniques. It serves as a valuable resource for SMP artists throughout their career.

Topical Anesthetics:

  • To ensure client comfort, topical anesthetics are applied before the procedure. This minimizes discomfort during the process, allowing for a more pleasant experience.

Aftercare Products:

  • Proper aftercare is crucial for optimal healing and long-lasting results. This may include specialized creams or ointments that facilitate the healing process.

Safety and Sanitation Equipment:

  • SMP artists prioritize safety and hygiene. This includes sharps containers for safe disposal of used needles, as well as thorough cleaning and disinfection protocols.

At MicroBarber, we invest in top-quality tools and equipment to ensure that every SMP procedure is executed with precision, care, and the utmost attention to detail. Our commitment to excellence extends beyond technique—it's ingrained in every tool we use. Experience the MicroBarber difference. 💈💪 #MicroBarber #HairConfidence #SMPToolsOfTheTrade
