Scalp Micropigmentation: A High Paying Hustle

Are you looking to make extra cash on the side of your full time career? It can be a difficult task in matters of substantial pay and time management. However, there is a solution. Consider scalp micropigmentation training. The skill of scalp micropigmentation is lucratively rewarding as well as emotionally rewarding. 

What is scalp micropigmentation?

Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is an alternative hair loss solution, (that unlike other hair loss solutions,) delivers immediate results. Scalp micropigmentation is ideal for individuals who suffer from various types of hair loss. Whether that’s balding, thinning hair, or alopecia; Scalp micropigmentation can help. This procedure is also ideal for individuals who have not had the best luck with other hair loss procedures such as FUE, FUT or any other type of hair transplant.

The difference between scalp micropigmentation and other hair loss procedures is this:

  • It’s non-invasive.
  • It takes only a few hours.
  • The healing time is very short, (anywhere from a few days to a week.)
  • The results are immediate

Scalp micropigmentation is essentially a hair tattoo. It does not stimulate the regrowth of hair follicles, but rather, it gives the illusion of hair. However, the technique and equipment that is used is different than traditional tattooing. Scalp micropigmentation is a form of permanent cosmetics. The size of the needle is smaller, and the ink is pigmented differently, so that it doesn’t discolor.


What are the benefits of scalp micropigmentation training?

If you’re involved in the permanent cosmetic industry, hair industry, or tattoo industry, then coming into scalp micropigmentation and offering it as a service in your business would be fairly simple and very lucrative. Although it would be very easy for you to come into scalp micropigmentation, you will need training for the procedure.

According to an article by Career Trend, scalp micropigmentation artists can make anywhere from between $55,000 – $80,000 annually. However, keep in mind, that this article is from 2017. Scalp micropigmentation has gained popularity since then. The more popular it becomes, the more opportunities for increased income there will be.

At Tampa Scalp Ink, we’ve calculated the income to be slightly higher based on our experience and gained momentum of the procedure. An average SMP treatment can cost anywhere from $2,000-$3,000 (still much lower, and more effective than other hair loss treatments.) With one client per week, that calculates to anywhere between $8,000-$12,000 in gross monthly income. $96,000-$144,000 in gross annual income.

Not only is the money good, but seeing a client go from 0 – 100 in confidence level is pricelessly rewarding. You will hear stories of crazy extremes that men and women have gone through to “hide” their hair loss. After scalp micropigmentation, those individuals are a whole new person. They’re done hiding, they’re done putting on a facade, they are finally free to just be themselves! It’s possible to have a career that makes good money and is also personally and emotionally rewarding. You’ll find exactly that in the scalp micropigmentation industry.
