What are the differences between Scalp Micropigmentation and a Tattoo?
Tattoos turn blue, SMP if done properly will never change color
Tattoos are performed by using a shading technique. A true SMP artist will NEVER shade your head, instead tiny dots will be embedded into your scalp to match your existing hair buds.
Tattoo needles go deep into the dermal layers of your scalp. SMP if properly done will be inserted into the epidermal layers of your scalp creating a crisp and clear dot matching exactly with your hair follicle.
Tattoo equipment is more abrasive and less precise in addition, techniques and procedures are different than those of an experienced scalp micropigmentation practitioner.
The be all end all of it is, there is NEVER any reason to get an actual tattoo on your head. If you’re even considering it please first do yourself a favor and do a Google search for “bad hair tattoo”
