Course information

A focused, information-packed, hands-on foundational class designed for beginners wanting to enter the field of Scalp Micropigmetation (SMP), or for those want to add to their body art or cosmetic tattoo background. Rather than provide a general overview of SMP we train our  students in-depth over a longer period of time to teach core basics essential to their future growth. Our curriculum dissects techniques and strategies for proper planning and to encourage critical thinking.  Students are presented with topics to troubleshoot and analyze multiple aspects of the process for a deeper and methodical understanding.

Phases One (39 hours)- During pre-class study students will begin to understand conditions of the skin, hair loss patterns for both men and women, medical reasons for hair loss, terminology, needle theory and machine theory, color mixing and aftercare. This portion of training accounts for 39 class hours. Students will also complete and appropriate OSHA BBP class during this time.

Phase Two (45 hours / 5 days)-

Part A: During the second phase of training students will apply theory as we dive deeper into color theory, skin types, surgical history, candidacy, contraindications and medical clearances, treatment evolution, needle and machine theory, client management, documentation and photography. Students will study male and female hairline shapes and practice drawing them for approval.  Hands-on technique mastery is begun on vegan pads and fruits to strengthen hand and eye coordination skills before working on live models.

Part B: Students who show consistency on practice mediums will work on live models under direct supervision of their instructor in an actual treatment room. Students will practice safety protocols and complete their own treatment set up and brake downs as well as tattoo their own models. While up to six students may be present in any fundamental class only one student will tattoo at a time, per instructor or instructor assistant. Due to the time needed to compete a full SMP procedure students will often share models or compete portions of a procedure. A written test is performed at the end of class. Students must pass the written portion of training with an 80%. or higher.

Phase Three (25 – 30 hours)- The final phase of training for SMP students is to complete three models (all sessions) immediately after class for approval. Students are encourage to complete at least one complete density series, one shaved treatment series, and one scar or a second shaved or density series. Written and photo documentation is needed to show the student has properly carried out the SMP procedure as learned. The student has 120 days to complete this phase successfully of which a certificate of completion will be mailed to them.

Inclusions: Students will be given pre-study class materials once enrolled including: Phase One and Two digital manual, OSHA BBP class link (cost not included), proof of BBP training (certificate) upon arrival to class.
