Scalp Pigmentation with Tattoos
I always wonder what is going to be the next discovery for tattoo uses. And here it is.  Guys that are losing their hair are getting a procedure called “scalp pigmentation”.  Over 50 percent of men over 50 years of age are affected by male-pattern baldness. Going bald can be a traumatic transition for some men.  They don’t like it at all but now there’s a new option in town.

A company called HIS have come up with the technique. It’s basically creating an optical allusion of a buzz cut for guys that have lost their hair.  Different shades of pigment are tattooed in the scalp replicating the density and size of short hairs.  HIS is now opening up clinics across Europe and the US and there is no shortage of interested male clients.

Guys like it because it’s more affordable, permanent, and it’s non-surgical. This gives men an alternative to transplants which cost much more.

Wow! Who’d have ever thought of this idea? I can see the merit in it (and you can even pick your new hair color!

This is such a good idea. Like the blog said it’s permanent and more afordable. Forget painful transplants just use a little ink!

For sure these men will not ever have issues of gray head just the eyebrows when they age. But is it only for men with military cut hair ?
