Scott "Ruger" Ryan
After having scalp micropigmentation (SMP) treatment and personally experiencing the resulting confidence boost, Scott “Ruger” Ryan knew he wanted to become a practitioner. Scott loves that he can have a positive impact on clients’ lives by transforming their look. “[Hairline Ink] gives me an opportunity to change lives one person at a time,” the Chicago native says. “I feel as if this job has given me a sense of purpose again, a positive direction in life.”
In May 2018, a month before Scott’s 30th birthday, his younger brother passed away. Not long after, Scott noticed his hair was thinning and getting patchy. Scott had been sporting a shaved head look since he was 12 and had no desire to grow out his hair to cover up spots that were thinning. Scott stumbled upon SMP when he was looking at options for keeping the shaved look but not going completely bald. As someone who already had tattoos, SMP seemed like a natural fit and the most logical solution to his thinning hair.
During his research on SMP, he kept seeing ads for Hairline Ink. He began to read more about the company and lead practitioner “Magic Mike” Muszynski. After having a free consultation with Mike and seeing his skills and knowledge firsthand, Scott was sure that Hairline Ink was the place to get his treatment done.
Scott wanted to do something more meaningful with his life after the death of his brother. He had been in sales for nearly a decade, and while the money was good, he was miserable. Less than a month after his SMP treatment, Scott decided he wanted to get involved in the industry. He reached out to Mike and Hairline Ink CEO Bradley Lewis about breaking into the field. “It just so happened that the stars aligned, and they were looking for someone to assist Mike at the Chicago location,” he says.
As an artist, Scott had wanted for years to do something that allowed him to be creative. Hairline Ink has opened that door for him. He loves the learning process and technique involved with SMP. “Meeting new people every day, hearing their stories, and watching that transformation right in front of me is amazing,” he says. He adds that working with someone as skilled, relatable, and humble as Mike has been healthy for him in coping with his brother’s passing.
Scott says his most rewarding client experience involved an 18-year-old male who had suffered from alopecia throughout his teenage years. The client was about to go to college but felt like his condition was holding him back. “Watching that young man get his confidence back and no longer feeling any shame and embarrassment was incredible to witness,” Scott says.
Scott says his favorite thing about Hairline Ink that he gets to make a difference in other people’s lives on a daily basis. “I feel as though SMP is a job that puts good karma out into the universe for myself as a practitioner as well as clients,” he says.
In his spare time, Scott likes to spend time with his father and write and perform music. He has toured the country with SevenSixx, a hip-hop group he formed with two friends. A dog lover, Scott is also working on becoming a certified dog trainer.

I often find myself browsing through the pictures you have taken of all the customers because of the beauty and awesomeness you capture every time. WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS HOW HAPPY WE ARE! YOUR PHOTOS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES! AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL, STUNNING..I COULD GO ON and ON!! Thank you again, especially for my Husband who can now Enjoy life without his hat! My husband is once again happy and not ashamed of himself anymore. Thank you So Much! One million Stars for you!!!!
Visiting hairline ink was an incredible experience. My technician showed incredible compassion towards me and I felt confident in his expertise from the moment we met. I had the unfortunate experience of having scar work done from a rival company. I was left with poor results and I felt that it was impossible to put an end to my nightmare. After only one session the scar was almost completely gone! I believe that Hairline Ink is the best in the business and I'm glad that I found them!
Never had a tattoo before and this was absolutely Amazing, I love my new SMP. They were the best, did a fantastic job and really care about their clients. They made me feel very comfortable and the communication was best. I am planning on going back for my 3rd session and I can't wait. Thank you 🙂
If you're reading this because you're on the fence - DO IT! I was at a wedding last week, hanging out with a bunch of guys my age and balding came up (quite a few of them were bald or close to it) and one of them says to me "If I had as much hair as you do, I would never buzz it that short - let it grow out!" Mission accomplished. THANK YOU!
This Procedure has changed my life! I only wished I did it much sooner. It's very low maintenance and I get to enjoy a perfect realistic hairline everyday for the rest of my life. I can now go without a hat with great confidence. People actually think my new buzz cut hairline is real. They ask me who my barber is and compliment me! They have no idea I had the Procedure done. You can't go wrong with Hairline Ink. You will be a New younger looking person in no time.
This, by far, will be the most realistic tattoo you'll ever see! I've kept my scalp treatment a secret from absolutely no-one. I have to convince everyone it's a tattoo because no-one ever believes me!
I had two treatments and I can’t say enough positive things about my experience. My practitioner was very friendly and professional. No BS. The treatments were explained thoroughly and done with minimal discomfort. They make you feel very comfortable throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Hairline ink!
Having been bald for the last 5 years i can honestly say that hairline ink has changed my life. I would strongly 5 star recommend this treatment from hairline ink for anybody looking to stop having to feel the need to wear a fitted baseball all day every day. I want to thank everyone at hairline ink. They did a amazing job with my treatment. In summary, guys stop thinking about doing this treatment AND just get it done. You won't regret it!!!
