What is the best micropigmentation equipment to buy?

We think our Vogue machine is the best on the market – but we would say that wouldn’t we?

We designed and manufactured this machine ourselves and its style and durability has been unsuccessfully copied by many other schools. If you buy cheap, you will buy twice, so buy smart.

We only supply EU certified products and each product is subject to a strict trial period before it is included in our catalogue.  We offer a number of kit options depending on your budget.

Can you get help with funding your equipment and kit?

Finishing Touches can offer you finance for the equipment only and further details can be found by clicking on the below button.

Machines and kits

What do I need in place before I train?

In order to become a SPMU technician you need to have a licence to practice from your local council.  We suggest you make contact with them before booking to ensure that you will be able to work from your desired location.  The licence should be in place in time for you to start your case studies.  All councils have different criteria but the basic they will require is a washable floor and running water in the treatment room.
