In all of my years on these hair loss forums, I have NEVER had this done and this is something that I would have the guts to do if it helps cover up my hair loss. Please, post as much info as you can and pictures. Can you please answer the following

1) What do they tattoo on you? Is it just dots or lines?
2) How many of the above did they do?
3) What was the cost?

they tattooed very small dots. the artist had tremendous patience and skill. I dont know exactly how many he did but i guess it was a good amount. The cost was $250/hr. So f'ing worth it! the website is http://www.artistryconceptshairreplication.com

theres a galley link on thier site. i'm letting them put up some post procedure pictures. i think they'll be up soon

Liquidssh, congrats to you, your pics look just great

has anybody pointed out the fact that it is a tatto?

How does people that meet you for the fist time react to it?
And what about the people that know you and see you on a daily basis?

Finally I saw that this guy charges $250 per hours, how many hours does it take a procedure like yours?

I'd appreciate your responses to these questions, I live in Florida and I'm considering a visit to artistry concepts

thank you buddy

thanks man on the congrats.... actually not one person has pointed out thats its a tat or looked at my head funny. prior to doing this i used a concealers that actually worked pretty well. it was just the whole process of applying it and worrying about anyone touching my head, etc. it was too much.
My procedure took about 6 1/2 hrs. the toughest part was just coming up with the hairline. i recommend you ask them if you can go in and watch them do a procedure. they had some guy come in and check me out while i was there. he seemed really impressed. good luck with everything!

Default A concern....

I have heard of others who were very pleased with this procedure, but my concern is this: The tattooing matches your hair color, right? So what happens in 10 - 20 years when your hair turns grey? I'm thinking those tattoos will be very visible little dark dots because they won't match your hair color.

Is this a permanent tattoo? How easy would it be to have it removed?

when i start greying, they can touch it up to match the grey. it is a permanent tattoo. i know there is laser removal now to remove tattoo's. i think its pretty expensive. but with technology advancing so quick...in 10-20 years it might be easy to have it removed if if choose to.the bottom line is right now i have a restored confidence. it was totally worth it for me.

It would be interesting to see if FUE patients have their micro scars tattooed to fill in the missing donor hair.

Liquidssh; I guess that by now the tattoo is fully healed, so do you have any additional observation or comment to give to us?

Is the tattoo and your remaining hair a perfect match?
It is undetectable even under close inspection?
Also how do you cut your hair in order to match the tattoo better?

Thank you, Your response is appreciated, Charles
