The Ideal Seasons for Getting a Head Tattoo

The Best Time to Embark on Your Head Tattoo Journey

At Elegant SMP, we believe in enhancing your appearance and boosting your confidence through scalp micropigmentation. To achieve the best results, we recommend considering the following factors when choosing the right season:

  • Comfortable Environment: Both you, as the client, and our skilled artists are likely to be more comfortable during certain seasons. The studios maintain a more temperate climate during these times, ensuring that you and our team can focus on the procedure without discomfort caused by excessive sweating.
  • Enhanced Healing Process: During certain seasons, your scalp will naturally sweat less, and it will be less exposed to the elements. These factors facilitate a quicker healing process, reduce the risk of infection, and ensure a seamless recovery. Your scalp micropigmentation will heal efficiently, and you’ll be ready to flaunt the results when summer arrives.
  • Less Crowded Studios: Compared to the busier summer months, there are specific seasons when our studios are less crowded. This translates to shorter waiting times and our undivided attention during your procedure, guaranteeing the highest level of service.

The Optimal Seasons: Fall and Winter


The fall and winter months emerge as the ideal seasons for getting a head tattoo or undergoing scalp micropigmentation. Several reasons make these cooler months the preferred choice:

  1. Comfortable Environment: Cooler temperatures ensure a more pleasant setting for both clients and our skilled artists. Excessive sweating can be minimized, allowing for a smoother procedure.

  2. Enhanced Healing Process: During the fall and winter, your scalp undergoes a more efficient healing process. With less exposure to the elements, such as harsh sunlight or salty water, your freshly applied pigmentation is less prone to damage. This facilitates a seamless recovery and reduces the risk of infections.

  3. Less Crowded Studios: Winter tends to be a slower season for most people seeking scalp micropigmentation. With fewer clients, our studios are less crowded, allowing us to dedicate more time and attention to each individual. This ensures personalized service and a stress-free experience.

  4. Transition to Summer: By choosing to undergo scalp micropigmentation during the fall or winter, you’ll be ready to showcase your transformed look when summer arrives. This is especially beneficial if you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors or participating in activities that may expose your scalp to the sun or other elements.

The Risks of Choosing Summer


Opting for scalp micropigmentation during the summer, particularly in the spring or early summer, comes with certain risks that may impact the success of your procedure:

  1. Sun Exposure: Exposing a fresh scalp tattoo to the sun can result in adverse consequences. Increased chances of infection, potential damage to the freshly applied pigmentation, and fading of the newly inked areas are common concerns when getting scalp micropigmentation in the warmer months.

  2. Environmental Factors: If you head to the beach or engage in outdoor activities during your scalp micropigmentation’s healing period, the sand, salty water, and bacteria can pose significant challenges. These elements are less detrimental during the fall and winter months when exposure to potentially harmful elements is minimized.

  3. Artist Availability: during the busy summer season, artists may find themselves overwhelmed with appointments. This increased workload may lead to errors or rushed procedures, potentially compromising the quality of your scalp micropigmentation.

Essential Tips for Your First Head Tattoo

When considering scalp micropigmentation, Elegant SMP offers these tips to ensure a successful and comfortable experience:

  1. Thoughtful Design Selection: Since scalp micropigmentation is a permanent procedure, it is essential to choose your preferred hairline design carefully. Take into account your desired look and style, and consult with our experienced artists to help you make an informed decision.

  2. Choose a Reputable Studio: Ensure that you work with certified scalp micropigmentation studios that uphold the highest standards of hygiene and professionalism. Research and read reviews to select a studio that has a proven track record of delivering exceptional results.

  3. Mental Preparation: Understand that the process of scalp micropigmentation may involve some discomfort, including the sensation of the needle on your scalp. Psychological readiness is essential for a smooth experience, so take the time to mentally prepare yourself for the procedure.

  4. Aftercare: Proper aftercare is crucial for a successful healing process. This includes gently cleaning your scalp after the 4th day, moisturizing regularly, and following the guidelines provided by our expert SMP practitioner. Beware, the application of a healing ointment, which is not recommended by our team, can encourage the pigment to get pulled out since we don’t go as deep as traditional tattoos.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
