About Pure Ink SMP


Scalp Micropigmentation

SMP is a tattoo-like procedure in which pigment is inserted below the epidermis of your scalp in a series of micro-dots to give the illusion of hair follicles. SMP can create a shaved head look, or it can make thinning hair look fuller and thicker.
In 2017 Diana trained with one of the top PMU artists in Los Angeles County for permanent makeup and scalp micropigmentation. Later, to expand her knowledge and perfect the skills of scalp micropigmentation, Diana took an additional course by one of the world’s leading SMP academies, ICCON International.
With this knowledge, Pure Ink has offered outstanding services to our clients, including SMP for men, women, scarring, and alopecia. Ensuring scalp micropigmentation is done efficiently, and with a high-quality standard, so you get the best results.


I am Diana Schaumburg, CEO of Pure Ink Scalp Micropigmentation, and I was born and raised in San Diego, California. Since high school, I have been insecure about my thinning hair; when a boyfriend asked me, “what is wrong with your hair?” I understand how traumatizing hair loss can be and have found a way to overcome my insecurities and help others overcome theirs.
I graduated from Southwestern College with an AA in Business Administration but quickly realized that I preferred to work with my hands, so I transitioned into the dental field. After graduating from a rigorous and extensive dental hygiene program, I continued my education by earning my BA in Business Management at SDSU while working full time as a dental hygienist. During my 18 years in the dental field, I became an expert at performing sensitive procedures that require complete attention to detail. Because I worked with high anxiety patients, I gained a deep awareness of their comfort level and learned how to alleviate their fears. I took pride in providing a safe and private environment to improve my patients’ health and self-confidence. After so many years in the dental field, I realized it was time to take what I learned and apply it to my other passions.
In 2016, I discovered the world of permanent makeup (PMU) and quickly fell in love with scalp micropigmentation (SMP). In 2017 I trained with one of the top PMU artists in Los Angeles County for PMU and SMP. To expand my knowledge and perfect my skills, I took an additional SMP course from one of the world’s leading scalp micropigmentation academies, ICCON International. I pride myself on being a lifelong student by continuously taking classes and attending seminars to further my growth as an artist.
I am a perfectionist and always go above and beyond to serve my clients while making them feel comfortable through the entire process. My long-term goal is to become an educator and use my years of experience to help other aspiring SMP artist expand their knowledge and perfect their skills.
