Scott "Ruger" Ryan

SMP Practitioner


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.
