Amazing. Such an elated feeling of confidence since visiting the studio at Barb And Ink. Both Melindas kindness and ability to create the look i wanted is a testament to her hard work. Thank you so much for this opportunity and guaranteed I will be spreading the word around town. 


@barbandink and I did something amazing today!
Melinda worker her magic on me today with SMP (scalp micro pigmentation) with a tiny needle, a steady hand and some cosmetic tattoo ink, she was able to give me the most amazing 5'oclock shadow moustache.
I am thrilled with the results and
honestly I feel like this has really leveled up my androgyny. (which is my aim in my transition) it will fade, and lighten a little bit over the next couple of weeks till my touch up session. But honestly I couldn't be more happy in my body and skin.
I feel like pinocchio, a real boy


I can't say enough about Melinda from Barb & Ink. She is not just a skilled SMP practitioner, but a truly exceptional
individual. From the moment I met her, I was immediately put at ease by her gentle and kind nature. Melinda's approach to her work is not just professional, it's deeply personal, and it
shows in the remarkable results she achieves.
Melinda's creativity is truly unparalleled. She took what was once a source of insecurity for me and turned it into a
work of art. Her attention to detail and passion for her craft shine through in every single session. Melinda didn't just
give me the confidence I had been longing for; she elevated it to new heights.
I can honestly say that Melinda's SMP services have been life-changing for me. Her dedication and caring approach
made every step of the process an absolute joy. She was patient, understanding, and always there to address any concerns or questions I had. It was more than just a professional relationship; it felt like she was on this
journey with me.
Thanks to Melinda, I now walk taller, prouder, and with newfound confidence that radiates from within. I am so
grateful to have found Melinda at Barb & Ink, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for SMP services. Her gentle, kind, and creative touch truly sets her apart. Thank you, Melinda, for making me feel like the best version of myself. You are a true gem in the SMP world!
