Understanding the Concept of a Hair Tattoo
If you discussed getting a hair tattoo with your grandparents, they would imagine this huge big black inked puddle on your scalp, when in fact, it’s the complete opposite.
Scalp micropigmentation is a treatment that mimics an abundance of follicles to look like a real shaven head of hair. Thousands of tiny impressions (dots) are evenly layered and distributed across the scalp using a technique very similar to a tattoo but at a fraction of the depth. SMP breaks into the 2nd layer of the epidermis. It looks so real you can’t tell what is pigment, and what are the real hair follicles. When done correctly, it will give the impression of having a full head of hair, just like a shaven head or a buzz cut. SMP can also be used to add density to thinning hair, which will give you the look of a fuller head of hair. Most commonly found on clients after they have had a hair transplant. The hair will appear thicker, fuller, and completely natural. SMP is a great solution for anyone who suffers from Alopecia areata, alopecia traction, alopecia universalis, and alopecia totalis.

Benefits of Hairline Tattoos?
Studies show that 1 in 2 people suffer hair loss, did you know that by the time most men notice hair loss, they have lost around 40% of their hair? Scientifically we inherit hair loss from our mother’s ancestors.
Our multi-award-winning hairline tattoos are created by incredibly talented artists, using tiny needles we mimic an abundance of hair follicles deposited into the scalp to create tiny impressions, of pigment in the skin. These needles rotate at a speed of 100 to 150 times per second, and each time they penetrate the skin, a little impression is deposited into the scalp, giving the scalp a pattern that resembles real hair follicles.
When the treatment is complete you will have the appearance of a full head of hair, that never-ending forehead will be framed, you will look 10 years younger, and when you look younger, you feel younger. This treatment lights a fire inside you, that you never knew went out. It really is life-changing, as cliché as it sounds, it’s a complete game-changer in every way.
Does it look real?
We understand that most individuals actually just want to know if it’s going to look natural, personally, having had the treatment myself, logistics and price should not be considered during your decision process. regardless of how many price tags and risks may go into your choice. Look at the work of every artist you can find, and study the hairline, it’s the most important part.
Hairline tattoos should have a natural shape that suits your face, nobody’s face is symmetrical, it should also have natural recession at the temples, or age-appropriate recession, you’d only regret it down the road, so always bear in mind, that you can always add, you can’t take back. Always ensure that the hairline tattoo has that perfect fade or subtle softness, some call it a staggered hairline. It also needs to blend seamlessly and look uniform. If you can find a clinic that can achieve these points, you’ll have a hair loss treatment that nobody will ever detect, unless you tell.
Is Scalp Micro Pigmentation the Right Choice for You?
It’s crucial to consider the wider picture before deciding where to have your SMP carried out, do not base your decision on location, or on price, you get what you pay for, always keep that in mind.
This is a treatment that if not carried out correctly the whole world will see, you can’t hide your scalp, and you can get away with a hat in the summer, or a beanie in the winter, but what about clubbing, social events, weddings, etc
Your scalp is on display for the world to see. I always consider my treatment to be my lion’s mane, without it I feel like a lioness, but with my treatment, I don’t feel as alienated and anti-social.
Hair transplants on the other hand, just have a look at the aftermath of the scars from an FUE and FUT hair transplant before you decide anything. So many companies sell you the dream or tell you what you need to hear. I overlooked these when I was researching hair loss solutions, what put me off was the hormonal drugs and chemicals from Finasteride and minoxidil, these need to be taken after a hair transplant to delay losing any more of your natural hair.
Imagine getting your hair transplant at the crown area, and a year later you lose the front of your natural hair, you would need another hair transplant, and then hope you don’t lose any more natural hair.
It was a no-brainer for me, I’ve got tattoos all over my body, so actually suits a shaven head of hair.
