Q : Is Scalp Micro Pigmentation (SMP) ” Hair-Replacement Or Scalp Tattooing ? ”
A : Scalp Tattooing .
In The Last Few Years This Procedure of Tattooing Micro-Dots On The Scalp To Resemble ” Stubble-Hairs ” Has Come On The Scene. The Safety And Longevity Of This Procedure Has Not Yet Been Fully Established To-Date.Costs Can Range From $ 3,500 To Over $ 12,000.
NOTE : INDIA INK & MANY INKS FROM CHINA CAN BE TOXIC.
All Tattoo Inks Fade From UV , Swimming & Chemical Agents.Therefore, “Re-Applications Will Be Required Approximately Every 3-4 Years.” Sunburns Can Also Damage Scalp Tattooing.
Your Real Remaining Scalp Hair Still Needs To Be Shaved Daily Or Scalp Tattoos Will Be Obvious. SCALP TATTOOS DON’T GROW!
This Procedure Should NOT Be Confused With ” Non-Surgical Or Surgical Hair-Replacement “. Tattoos Are NOT Hair !
From A Distance This Procedure Might look like a ” Buzz-Cut ” … But Up-Close & To The Touch .. Not So Realistic… Hair is 3-Dimensional And Has Texture … Tattoos DO NOT !
I’m Including Here An Article Printed In Esquire Magazine That Pretty Much Sums Up ” Scalp Micro Pigmentation” .

Balding? Please Don’t Get a Scalp Tattoo.
BY JONATHAN EVANS
” Today in the ongoing war on baldness: A new trend seems to be taking hold, at least according to The Hollywood Reporter, which tells us that aside from old school methods like hair plugs and newer ones that suction hair off the legs and “punch” it back into your head, guys are using something called scalp micropigmentation. Or, to put it another way, guys are tattooing fake stubble onto their hair-free heads.
Naturally, we find this disturbing. Not just because we firmly believe that there is such a thing as going bald with dignity, and that those men out there who are losing their hair should do their very best to strive for that. But also because, well, this seems like a deeply flawed method of masking your baldness for most guys. Why? Because hair is three-dimensional. Even when it’s really short. It has mass, and, more importantly, texture. Tattoos don’t.
Now, the actors that the Reporter says are most fond of this new procedure, they might get away with a trompe-l’oeil version of this, being as we see them only on the screen, where we can’t confirm that, Huh, your supposed hair is completely flat and feels like skin. But when they get home to, say, a girlfriend that can see that tatted dome up close — and, crucially, touch it — you can bet the illusion goes right out the window.
And then that girlfriend is just left with this: A man so desperate for a full head of hair that he has permanently inked himself with an approximation of one. If a flowing mane is follicular shorthand for virility, this is the exact opposite”.
Lastly, The ” Straight-Line Hairline Without Temporal Recessions” And “Narrower Hairlines” Will Not Look Appropriate On All Ages And Races Of Individuals. When The Stubble-Look Goes Out Of Style … Then What ? A Hair-System? A Hair-Transplant Is Not An Option Until All The Tattoo Ink Is Removed From The Scalp. What A Hassle !
Think Twice..And Then Again… Before Getting Scalp-Tattooed.
