Does SMP turn green or blue? Well, scalp micropigmentation can change color unless the artist uses the top-quality product. There is a high risk of the ink turning blue or green. Usually it might change color when the practitioner uses a low-quality product that needs dilution. The risk of discoloration is minimal if it is done with the right pigment concentration.
Why Does SMP ink turn blue?
In a majority of cases, incorrect application is to be blamed for the discoloration of SMP pigment. There could be a few reasons. First, if the scalp artist places the pigment into the wrong layer of skin, there are high chances of fading, blurring, or migration. What is the wrong or right layer? An experienced SMP technician is skilled in implanting the ink in the upper layer of dermis, which is the second skin layer after the top layer, which is known as epidermis. The skin layer beyond dermis is called hypodermis.
Usually tattoo ink is placed in the lower dermis or deeper into the dermis. That’s the reason it blurs or migrates. But scalp micropigmentation involves placing the ink into the top dermis layer just beneath the epidermis. Top SMP artists know that the epidermis is not the right spot for ink placement because it has a lot of dead and flaky skin. If someone places the ink into this layer, then it will flake away after a few weeks.
The scalp practitioner finds the sweet spot in dermis, which is about 1.5 depth. At the top dermis layer, pigment can hold its structure without discoloration, fading, or migrating. A little fading is part of the natural process of the body, wherein the immune system is working to remove the pigment as it is a foreign object, resulting in natural fading.
SMP ink should not be deposited into the hypodermis, which comprises blood and fat cells. The placement of SMP pigment in this layer might result in the ink going blue or even migration as the impressions get bigger over time and spread.
Type and quality of ink
The quality of pigment matters the most. Earlier, SMP inks had to be diluted, which meant that the pigment would go blue or green over a period of time, as their original color fades.
If tattoo artists continue to use the wrong pigments or low-quality ink that requires dilution, there is a high chance of the SMP turning blue. One such top-quality pigment comes from DermMicro. There are 3 premium HD DM pigments for different types of skin that require no dilution. Pigment HD-C is formulated for clients with a light skin and blonde hair. Medium skin tone clients will get pigment HD-M that matches their dark hair. Pigment HD-B is meant for dark tones and bright hair.
When clients want the best SMP results, you cannot trust an average or low-quality product. Give them the best scalp micropigmentation experience with SMP HD pigments that have a longer staying power, do not migrate or fade, and use organic vegan ingredients.
