You may be wondering whether you should get a temporary or a permanent SMP tattoo. At Trillium Ink, we strive to provide our clients with all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about their potential procedure. Keep reading to learn the major differences, pros, and cons of both a temporary and permanent SMP.

What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation is a state of the art medical tattoo that imitates the tiny hairs that make up your hairline. Our technicians apply pigment to your scalp to recreate a natural-looking hairline. We can also cover up scars from trauma or hair transplants. We proudly offer our cosmetic services to both men and women.

Pros and cons of temporary SMP

If you are still on the fence about getting a permanent SMP, opting for a temporary one that only lasts a few months could help you make your decision. Temporary SMPs are applied with the intention of eventually fading and disappearing. So if you want to see what a cosmetic hairline looks like, this is a good option. The cons of a temporary SMP are exactly as stated – the ink will fade. Even worse, the ink could turn an odd green or blue color as it ages.

Pros and cons of permanent SMP

A permanent SMP will last a lifetime if applied correctly. It won’t fade or discolor over time, unlike temporary ones. The only cons of getting a permanent SMP are that you cannot change your mind about it once it is applied. Additionally, if you still have some hair on your head that you want to dye later, it has to match the pigment of the SMP.
