Finally a tattoo hair treatment. I'm going to do this. (All Topicals & Shampoos)

Right now if I shave my hair, it looks like I did it because I have to. I've thought about getting a tattoo to have the shaved hair look by choice, but I never did it because I was afraid the ink would turn blue/green or just look bad.

I just found this hair clinic that specializes in tattooing heads to look naturally shaved. They also use special ink and other unique products.

Here are some before and after photos
http://www.hishairclinic.com/gallery/

I plan on doing this. I just hope the price isn't like ten times what a normal tattoo artist would charge. It's at least a step in looking like I have a full head of hair while still using topicals.

Any opinions about this?

I would expect up close you could tell the difference.

1. I think it is a great masking job
2. I think with a hair transplant it would be extremely beneficial... ie cover some "shiny" areas
3. looks great with covering scared areas a great plus if transplanted hairs go into scared areas.

over all best used with transplant.... Remember if U have no access to a razor it will look funny when 2/3 of your head is sproting hairs while U have a valley of pigment

What do you plan to do when you find out they lied and the spots change color in a year or two?

Call a cop?

From what I've been reading, any tattoo with GOOD ink will not turn blue or green. It's just tattoos with cheap ink that do that.

Having a tattoo doesn't kill hair follicles or stop hair from growing. If some miracle cure did come out and I grew back all my hair (doubt it), I could just grow my hair long again and the tattoo would be covered up.

My hair is thin in areas, but not shiny bald yet. I could probably grow my hair longer than just stuble and the tattoo would blend in, mostly getting rid of the noticeable thin areas. Kind of what that couvre product does.

Even if people could tell it was a tattoo when close up, I don't think I'd care. It would be better than replacing some wig every so often. Besides, people get tattoos all over their body and that's often considered "cool". Why not on the head?

ahab,

We're not talking about getting a tattoo from someone who got his first tattoo gun last week. They only tattoo people's heads so I'm sure the do the best job possible. I could also get it touched up every few years too. I do appreciate your viewpoint though, and will consider the things you say.

Is there any other possible alternatives? Toppik is a hassle to put on everyday. I generally just use it when I don't wear a hat. Again, I'm not super bald yet, I just have a lot of thin areas and a receding hairline. Not exactly the hair I'd like to seen with when tagged on facebook.

p_rry, remind us again why you feel this may be your lasr resort? What's the reason for not trying meds/treatments and/or a hair transplant?

The tattoo'ing option should be an absolute final resort, but to me it's not an option at all. Pics are EXTREMELY misleading so if you ever really do consider this tattooing technique a wise move would be to meet a few patients up close and personal first, examine them, and see their before photos as well. A pic of the current status of your hair might help us give you some advise as well.

all i can say is ask to see a few ex-patients in person before committing to it.

also i'd add that the hairline is too 'stiff' for some of the patients. Many of the hair line looks like the guy doing the tattoing is following a straight line for reconstructing the hairline. The hairline up front needs a soft feathery look.

this guy looks like he's wearing a helmet.

Terrible, just terrible. I like the idea of tatts but this is shocking. The guy on top looks like the line edge was drawn on with a magic marker. I don't know what social scene/work scene he is lucky enough to be part of, but in my neck of the woods that would be a recipe for disaster. Maybe, he has the oersonal/social skills to negotiate this.

But there IS hope for tatts. Why don't these damn tattoo people employ a bit of shading and graduation in the transistion zone, instead of demarking the hairzone from the hairless zone like the lights on JFK runway number 1??

Most younger African Americans I've seen normally have a FULL head of hair and will spend hours clipping the perfect hairline with an extremely thin beard. I think that's the look these guys are trying to imitate. I am not trying to copy that look.

Please look at some examples. Something like this would be fine for me.

Another thing is I still have a hairline, it's just THIN in many areas. My hair doesn't look good if I shave it or grow it out. With some tattooing I think my hair could look fuller when shaved. I'll look for a pic of me with a shaved head to post.

Hair implants are a bit out of my budget right now. That is another thing I could think about though.

Hanging, do you know if these inks they are using will fade over time?
Normal tatoos fade over time. I am no expert, so I don't know if nowadays this problem has been solved.
The results look good to me, because the dots are so sharp. But if the ink fades, it will look quite ugly.

Spanish Dude,

I read on the link that I posted that every three years, you may need a touch up. The ink will NOT turn blue or green though. They use high quality ink which keeps it's color.

Like I said before, I look at this as a solution for now. If a product that grows a full head of hair comes out, great, it'll cover the tattoo and everything is cool. So in ten years, I'll need to get two or three quick touchups. Hopefully by then something will come out.

Jo, thanks for that link. That actually is a state away from my home in America. Much closer than CA and FL like the other places I've heard of in the states that do this. If I do get this done I guess it'll either be in England while I stay in Thailand or MN when I visit home. options options...

Hi p_rry:
a touch up won't solve the fading problem.
If a dot fade over time, it will turn into a big-fat-gray-dot. If they tatoo a new dot, the old fat-gray-dot will remain.
am I wrong?

Yes, afaik, the tatoo not only loses colour, but also loses sharpness, and spreads around. That is the problem.

Perry,

We would like to thank you for considering working with Good Look Ink. We prefer to answer this question via the phone as its not a straight yes or no. We can say no [fading] if the client takes care of the process.

You can look at our Website and see to date not 1 person has had a bad experience as we have a fantastic rating with the BBB with 0 issues.

What number can one of our consultants contact you at to answer all of your questions.

If they asked, I would tell them that I'm balding and that it's a cosmetic tattoo. Big deal. Lots of people have tattoos. I care more about the way I look in public, not if people care if I have real hair or not. I heard glue on wigs are too much work and always have to be replaced. Therefore I won't go that route.

Read the FAQ on this website. It looks good. This place is out of Atlanta. I just hope the price is cheaper than the other quote I got.

"We would like to thank you for considering working with Good Look Ink. We prefer to answer this question via the phone as its not a straight yes or no. We can say no [fading] if the client takes care of the process."
=====================================================================

A big couple of Red Flags in my book.

This is what I would worry MIGHT be the intention:

(a) They don't want to put anything in writing that is clear cut, BS'ing you on the phone is a lot safer.
(b) "if the client takes care of the process" suggests to me if it goes wrong then they are looking to blame YOU.

In my book if "its not a straight yes or no" then it's going down as a YES...

Personally I think if you don't have any hair in the area then it won't be very realistic and the examples above do not - apart from maybe one or two who also had a lot of hair to begin with - look very natural to me (as somebody else has said).

UPDATE: This quote from their website:

-------------------------------------------------------------
"MHT™ scalp pigmentation treatment is classed as “permanent”, although with time the pigment is likely to fade and soften due to exposure to ultra violet light and the sun. MHT scalp pigmentation is not a conventional tattooing technique. The MHT™ techniques we have to adopt in order to create the correct size and shape of hair replications and micro hairs does mean fading can occur over time. In order to help this situation we provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to help preserve the best results."
-------------------------------------------------------------

I don't find this reassuring - and I cannot find anywhere which says how long it takes to fade to the point of unacceptability; how you fix it; how much it costs to fix;

Not Good.


Another Red Flag from their Webmaster on the forums:

----------------------------------------
"Honestly, we have clients who dont even tell their partners or family. We have one client in particular who had his treatment 5 years ago, and his wife still hasn't noticed. The chances of your work colleagues finding out you've had treatment are virtually zero, unless you choose to tell them."
---------------------------------------

Good grief, 'Honestly' I think you are being economical with the truth. If you are a significant Norwood (say 4 to 6) and you turn up to work with what looks like A FULL HEAD OF HAIR cut to stubble then I think that there is an its bitsy chance that people might notice :-)

OK, I'm outta here.

Bad idea....

1) all tattoos bleed or smudge over time...
2) outside these people likely look bald as ever. Their heafds will still look shiny because light is stilll reflecting off their bald tattooed scalp instead of actual hair.

My personal opinion of the response.

The following is just my personal interpretation and opinion - nothing more.

=====================================================
"We prefer to answer this question via the phone as its not a straight yes or no."
=====================================================

How I read this -

'We don't want to go on the record saying it will not fade but we do want to persuade you on the phone to go ahead.'

BIG RED FLAG.


=====================================================
We can say no [fading] if the client takes care of the process.
=====================================================

How I read this -

'If it fades it's your problem not ours.'


BIG RED FLAG.

Agreed. I had dots and they bled into blobs, but I think a more graduated approach might work - instead of sharp heavy dots on bare skin, I like the idea softer dots on a thin and light constant shaded background.

Of the four mug shots, I think one looks better, one looks the same (not good) and two look worse in the after shots

I think anyone considering this needs to see it in person. What about in direct sunlight, will it be easily noticeable? How well does it blend with the patients remaining hair? These can only be answered by seeing it in person.
my advice...just use the M.Gardson's method daily. .if you do happen to start experiencing hair loss, there are remedies that work to stop it.

»That's what it sounds like to me too. I got similar responses. They refuse to post good pics and told me I have to go there to see someone in person. They are hiding something. I contacted another place in Florida and got all the answers I wanted. Much more professional, honest and up front. Told me all pros and cons and did not just tell me what I wanted to hear

I was really ready to make fun of this, but I have to say it doesn't look ridiculous based on the photos. (well, some of those guys do, but I assume they wanted a very angular shaved-in style)

That said-- yeah, there are some questions. What does this look like in sunlight? What do you look like up-close? What's it going to look like in 10 years as the ink disperses throughout the skin?

I've seen the results on someone

I noticed a black guy 6 months ago at the airport with a tattooed hair. I have to say, it looks ok but noticeable.

I guess it depends what outfit does it. Maybe it was this guy. Here is one that really sucks,looks pretty solid in the hairline then along the left looks like he's still balding. poor guy.

...Dont do this. Seriously. I KNOW how much going bald hurts and how expensive everything is and that will cause many men to run out and go get this tatoo technique done. It will be the biggest mistake they ever make just ten years down the line. Even if it somehow manages to keep its color,it will not keep its sharpness. Not to mention that all hair eventually lightens(grays) as we age. Tatooing wont. Horrible quick fix solution. Anyone see just how bad Joey Lawrence looks when he isnt in a completely controlled,perfect lighting situation. He loks so bad. Im in the film business and have done hair and make up. I know the mechanics of skin. It doesnt have so much to do with how high in quality the colors are,its that skin is ever changing through life and will NEVER hold the tatoo or its color sharply or tightly. I know its tempting but its just another bad idea quick fix. Regards, Justin2rue

Still a risk of the ink turning green, even the "SPECIAL INK"

Are you male or female p_rry ?

Robert West-
The fee for a very bald man or a person who has his entire head done is $6,000. This will cover the main session and one to three touch-up sessions as the pigment may initially fade. Generally, fees for this can range from $3000-6000 depending upon the extent of the work.

ZG-
Everyone is different and I would make judgments on each person on a one-on-one basis. It is critical to establish realistic expectations and this is something the doctor and the patient must work out in person. The same type of initial examination will be done on all new patients to form the basis of a good, productive consultation and to build a good Master Plan so that everything you do will anticipate more hair loss over time and the consequences of any and all decisions made. And yes, we have been doing combined procedures of SMP and hair transplants.

Daniel Knepshield-
There is overhead here and risks, and I do not want to minimize these issues. I have, over the years, seen many patients who have had tattoos to their head and they looked totally unnatural, almost freaky… so from that experience, I established opinions from what I saw. I have seen some excellent results from a variety of places offering this type of service and amongst the best of them, the results can not be easily told from a full headed clipped scalp. Keep in mind that most people will accept what they see.

The patient shown above told me that he went to work and met with his colleagues 5 days later with great anxiety. A few noticed that he shaved his head and liked the change, but others just accepted his new hair style. No one asked him “What did you do to your scalp?” The pigments do still carry the risk of changing color to blue or green, so keeping out of the sun and wearing sunblock for sun exposure is critical.

William Rassman, MD - February 24th, 2011 at 8:45 am

Bill and Jack Smith-
Graying may be a problem as age sets in. Dyeing the hair to keep the balance between a dark scalp and white hair will be important for the future of many of these patients.

John-
Some may pick it up if they know what they are looking for, many people will not. Nothing is perfect in this world.

Jeff-
Good insights, but there will be no blank rule here and the patient and the doctor will have to discuss this.

Johnny-
Afraid, no… but over exposure to the sun is not a good idea. Using a hat outdoors or a good sun screen is critical when sun exposure occurs.

Tattoos can fade or change color under intense sunlight so protections are important with the use of a hat or a good high SPF blocker.
