I also happen to like the very close shaved look and I like the idea of the tattoo.
Not sure what the cost is for something like this but from researching HIS (some other company that does this) the pricing is very reasonable.
The key of course would be to see someone in person who has had this done.
From those that have done this. It seems to be an option and from what I am hearing...if you wanted to ...I believe it still allows for a hair transplant as well..(but don't quote me on that)
Not sure which way I personally would go...but it seems an option to consider.
Hard to tell from the varioius site but african americans and spanish decent seem to be more popular with this tattoo ing...I think because either the hair style is more in style with their cultures or possibly the tattoo effect is more succussful with their darker complextion..
Hard to say until a person could see a caucasun (SP) individual with this tattoo with a short haricut. etc..
I can't tell for sure but I think the pricing ranges from around 1500 dollars to 3000 depending on which firm you use and the difficulty of the work.
I understand they can do wonders covering the lateral scars of FUT ...(for the gentleman on this site not happy with his scar etc this might be a path to consider)
Again...I have not seen the work in person so anyone considering this should in my opinion see the work in person first...
I'm considering this if I can find someone who does this work in the NY metro area and has an excellent repuation.
From my understanding its a 10 day process...Actually 2 to 3 hours for the first service...then wait a few days....then go back for another hour or so...then at the end of the ten days....the artists finish up with a half an hour or hour more of detail finishing...
At least thats how it was described at the HIS site. (british company)
deleted double post..Sorry
double post by accident.
I think the concept of tatooing hair is very interesting....because if it looks good and your comfortable with the shaved look - then your problems are pretty much solved.
The british company 'HIS' look the most professional and most of the pics look good. They are also willing to do 'test' patches (so you could see the results on a small area before commiting to a larger area).
As with anything though, sometimes these things seem too good to be true - hardly any negative reviews and new members appearing on forums to rave about the procedure in their first posts.
On the 'HIS' website, there is a section where you can meet up with people who have had the procedure done.
I think meeting somebody in person, then maybe having a small test patch would be the way to go.
Like i said, it could be great and solve many peoples worries. Hopefully, somebody here will take the plunge and the forums will start getting reviews from long time posters.
Jooder..thats what I'm trying to do...

If it looks good...I'd do it..
I'd like to be able to have the option of a hair transplant on top of the tattoo as well should I decide years down the road to go that route..
Great forum. Very nice people to discuss each of the various options with.
Thanks for those who are the moderators and administrators here as well.
besides it will not damage your skin and is not permanent . The only problem that I see is the sun, will I be available to spouse my scalp to the sun ? or it will affect the "ink " ?
Tattooing has very limited acceptable uses and should not be considered as a permanent fix. Honestly in the end I believe most people will regret it, if someone is trying to sell you a non permanent tattoo that is easily removable, donít believe them. You will also have to stay out of the sun just like with any other tattoo.
it is not permanent, it will fade with time and you have to get a touch .

Lest just explain a little more, with a wig the only one that will think that you have hair is yourself .
Hair transplant have a limit donor area, so use it alone is simple insane. You have to take drugs and what about the future ? if you do not longer want to take drug ? If you wanna shave your head ? that is a permanent nightmare .
And just put hair transplant will just make you change the bald look for a thinning sick look , do not even talk how it look under the light sun .
Permanent make-up tattoos might fade, but do you really think it will fade to invisibility?
No, in my opinion - if you go for it, make sure you're prepared to have it there for life.
In your opinion ? lol , and who are you ? do you have any evidence or proove to show us that we do not know ? Cause I am looking for facts with some basement .

Again, I just like to see some results before get it, but it is the closer thing to freedom ( after simple shave it ) we can have . Hair transplant and hair system are simple " prisons " . Hair transplant only really going to work the day that hair multiplication became a reality ,cause, right now, with a timit donor area , is just a joke even in the best hands ( do not even think in a bad hands that is almost 90% of the clinics out there ) .
I had two strip hair transplant , and the strip method is simple barbaric. take out a big part of your skin scalp simple to get the folicles, is insane . Nobody talks about the folicles lost when you do the cut, and when you do the strip. And the FUE techinique will even give you less donor , at least you count with body hair transplant but it is pure luck and I never saw a really " succefully result " .
The only solution that can really regrowth some hair are drugs, all the others things ( tatoo, hts, wigs ) , are just camouflage .
