Looks good now mate, but wow what a journey!You sound like you've a resentment towards something or someone. First of all, I don't know who 'Brentwood' are. I DO know Brandwood. I never had SMP with Brandwood but can testify that Paul does great work. Technically SMP is NOT a tattoo when looking at needle depth and type of ink used. But I won't school you on that.
I've known people with 10 year old SMP that have never been called out. Paul and others left HIS HAIR due to extremely poor management by HIS HAIR and malpractice.
I've also had 2100 FUE by Dr Feriduni which survived the laser treatment. So I have smp/FUE combo.
So overall I'm extremely happy with the outcome. It has allowed me to move on. No looking back. No resentments. I wish you the best with your goals and objectives. Keep your chin up.
