    Default As I understand it...

    ...the ink used is easier to remove than standard tattoo ink.

    The official name of the procedure is Micro Pigment Implantation. I think it was invented primarily to cover up scarred areas of the scalp where hair does not grow.

    Personally, I wouldn't do it, but I know a guy who did do it and was pleased with the results. He wears a hairpiece (a very good one) but his remaining hair is very, very thin. He used the tattooing to add "fullness" only on the perimeter area that the hairpiece doesn't cover.

    If you decide to do it, check the credentials of the person who will be doing the procedure.

    I know a friend who did this and was happy at first, but within two years it looked like crap! I always thought it looked fake, but since he was happy I didn't say anything. Now heís trying to have the tattoos removed but might be left with depigmentation and some scaring. I feel sorry for him.

    I used to sell a concealer that was in a mascara tube but it went to the way side. But it was really targeting people with your type of hair. It was really durable and waterproof unlike mascara. But people kept crapping on my idea but those that bought it like it. I can't even get the materials to make it anymore it got too expensive.

    Is there any reason you can't get this tattoo and then at a later date if you decide you want a hari transplant you couldn't get one?

    thanks for sharing.

    how much would it cost to get a tattoo like your considering?

    actually the pics ive seen with HT plus the micropigmentation procedure looks amazing. people get the HT first and then fill in with the ink, looks great.

    and the one place,artistry concepts, i heard charges $250/hr

    we dont need to see his face, just his head.

    i have seen pics online of this procedure, but i havent seen a whole bunch.
    HT has millions of pics online but not so many for micropigmentation.

    i would want to see thousands of pictures to see how good AND bad it is. Seeing bad jobs too definitely help out the decision makings

    There is a place in the U.K called Hishairclinic and there results look pretty good. Some of the hairlines are a little to straight but depending on the look your going for that can be modified. If it makes you feel better about yourself, then why not..

    Be careful of the place in England, their procedure will fade and you will be required to keep coming back for touch ups at additional costs. I have also been thinking about this and have done alot of investigating. It seems that Artistry Conceipts in Fl stands out. They show pics after the procedure outside in sunlight, not doctored inside pics. He seems to be the only one who discusses the size of the needle which needs to be small enough to duplicate a hair follicle. He has a patent pending for his equipment which says something. The main concern I have is that there is not many pics six months to a yr post procedure. I wish some guys would post updated pics.
