    If you’re scouring the internet for smp results, I’ll save you some time—Johnny/Creative Scalps is legit. Once you are serious about getting it done, give Johnny a call—he’s a good dude, straight shooter and a perfectionist. I traveled from Seattle for each session and don’t regret it at all.

    I'm almost a week out from my 3rd session with John, and I'm over the moon happy with the results. I'm a super picky guy when it comes to this as we all should be. After all it's a permanent tattoo on the top of your head. I wasn't always the easiest to deal with because I had a lot of doubts going through the process, but as you can see I got a really subtle natural result. As for John himself I found him to be a super solid guy. He really cares about his clients and truly wants the best results and satisfaction. I confidently give my highest recommendation for John and Creative Scalps Arizona. Thanks again John WG

    When it comes to smp, there is no contest if what you are wanting is a natural and authentic look. I flew from out of state for every session because these guys are clearly the best in the business. It was an easy decision for me once I spoke to John and saw pictures, I knew exactly what I was getting into and went in with confidence. John pays attention to detail, he did an amazing job. It looks so, so, so real. Many positive comments already and all I really cared about was the convenience. I don’t have to shave every other day and wear hats as much. I had no idea it would impact the way I see myself each day as well, pretty amazing feeling. My wife loves it. My friends and family love it. I’m not a review writer, but I had to for this one, I know for you strangers out there reading this that this review will matter ???? Such a good decision! Well worth it.
