If you get the scalp micropigmentation with a shaved head and you want to see how the result would be, look at the before and after pictures in this article.
Depending on your SMP practitioner, you might get the SMP treatment with your current long hair or with a shaved head. There are many before and after photos of scalp micropigmentation for people with long hair, however, it is hard to find a photo from a person who wants to keep his hair long and has got SMP with shaved hair.
Believe me, it is hard to get acceptable pictures from people who have done SMP and left the studio.

SMP is counted as a kind of microneedling process by poking the scalp and stimulating the follicles that have still potential and help them to grow again.
Most of these hairs appear as vellus hairs and do not have a huge effect on the result, however, their presence could be valuable for the person.
Absolutely No. The hair tattoo is only a tattoo and is not real hair follicles. Their duty is to give you a fuller hair appearance. The real hair follicles could grow out over them or even a hair transplant can be done over them and this is an advantage of SMP.
