Who is the best SMP artist in Canada?

Determining the best Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) artist in Canada is a challenging and subjective task, given the inherently subjective nature of aesthetic art. Personal preferences play a significant role in this evaluation.

While some SMP artists may showcase awards, it’s essential to note that these accolades are often obtained through sponsored events where artists may have paid to attend or actively sought votes for themselves. Consequently, these awards may not serve as reliable indicators of genuine talent and skill; they are frequently used for marketing purposes. Same goes for grandiose claims and statements made about themselves (mainly made by themselves).

Another consideration is that of personal style, for example, an SMP artist who excels in creating a natural aesthetic may not necessarily excel in creating the sharp, defined look of an edged SMP, and vice versa. I always tell my students, pick a style, stick with it. Specialize rather than becoming a jack of all trades.
