Tattoo over scar (not smp)

If your planning on keeping your hair that short then SMP will look amazing on you I'm sure. When my back and sides are that short my scar is barely noticeable with the SMP..theres then a spot between the length on your pic and grade 2 where I can notice it a little but then it covers again when it gets to grade 3 and above with hair.
What i have been told is that the scar is very long and that it also goes "up", making it harder to conceal.

Here's another pic from the other side


And yes, my idea would be to keep it this short.

i thought about fue into the scar as well ( in addition to smp ) but i'm not it would make any difference.

Highly doubt FUE into scar as well as SMP will improve things if you plan on keeping it this short dude....Good SMP alone would be my advice because if you throw both into the mix you run the risk of the scar being too dark and prominent. If you plan on it being a little longer then that's a different story altogether.

I would consult with Damon Ashcroft if I were in your shoes he's doing some amazing work with scars.

In all honesty you will never get 100% disguise/improvement through either method but I believe you will get 80-90 % improvement with good SMP at that length and joe public will no longer look at the scar.

Has your tattoo held its colouring in the scar?
Who's do you mean scarred up i assume your referring to Jimbob with the normal tattoo or do you mean Cizinec who was thinking of having SMP into his?
I'd be interested to know whether you had SMP done into your scar Cizinec?

I'd also love to know how Jimbob has got on with his lovely tattoo too now it's been a while since he had it done....any updates like scarred up mentioned has the colour held dude?

Hi
Wondering if Jimbob is still around?
I'm in a similar situation and would love to chat/see more photos of the head tatt. I have had years of HT regret, anxiety and shit hair cuts to hide my strip scar and fake looking hairline. I don't trust the industry, it's a disgrace. Not interested in giving anymore of my money to it.
I was also researching head tatts to cover my strip scar when I came across this awesome thread. hope to hear from Jimbob or anyone else who has a skull tatt (Not SMP) covering their strip scar. Peace.

Not sure if hes still around dude, I hope he answers but if he doesn't I'd take it as a good sign that yes happy and moved on from his hair worries. I hope you can too pal. Any pics of your scar?....bad strip scars can be awful to live with I've been there myself.

Seeing it 15 months later would be nice but he has probably moved on with his life.

I'd love to see how that big tattoo has healed and looks now myself.
