lol right back at you scarman... All I can say is do your research real well on this one. Google permanent make-up and read for yourself - it will fade but it will always leave a mark. The ink also does not respond well to lasers. There are other techniques of removing but any technique used will come with the risk of... yea you guessed it, scarring!
So do you think tons of tiny dot scars would compliment that strip scar well?
I am not advocating hair systems or hair transplants here so I don't know why you are bringing them up. Nor am I saying that all head tats are crap. All I am saying is do your research, and be prepared to have them there for life if you go for it.
The headstyle group is doing a clinic in atlanta. If you live nearby I might suggest contacting them and meeting with them on January 16th or there abouts. I don't know how long they will be in atlanta but its an option to see first hand the results (depending on when you go)
I'm thinking about it...but also I am thinking about meeting up with someone in the Northeast tri state NY area to decide.
I like the idea of a tattoo and a clean shaven head with a buzz cut.
Prices seem to range from 600 to 3000 dollars so its not expensive and it might offer a freedom.
I am also considering a hair transplant instead of the tattoo.
Check out HIS as there is a forum there discussing the various options on tattoos.
I'm surprised there is no one in the United states doing this procedure.
No question it looks great on african americans and those of hispanic decent. Not quite sure about cacausin (SP) and thats why I think I need to see the results up front before deciding.
I believe and I could be wrong that a hair transplant can be done over the tattoo if hair styles change over time...but right now that short cropped look is in..
Thanks for the answer, I am living in south america . I am caucasian ( blond hair and white scalp ) so not so sure how it will look on me . I thought , by their site, that HIS have " clinics " in USA .

Hi guys. I think it's an interesting idea and shapes the face just wonderful, creating a young look. I suggest making a small patch tatoo by micropigmenting, somewhere you are not afraid to do it, like on your hand. Let it be small, but solid enough to judge. I would also do it to the shaved by razor look. Make it, take your time then, look what you get. Problem solved.
Thanks Smith..I don't do micropigmentation tattoos so I prefer to see a professionals efforts but thanks for your insight
So its almost a year since you created this thread...

Too much sun exposure can cause fading but if you take care and use sun cream there is no reason you cant enjoy the sun. Scars can be covered but sometimes take 2 or 3 times to cover, Its like a work of art having a headstyl, companies that say they can cover it in 1 or 2 treatment arent being truthful. Scars sometimes spit some of the pigment out so they need to be treated untill the desired effect id achieved. Nobody can predict how your head is going to react but your scars can def be covered. If you go on headstyl and send a couple of pictures in we can assess the area and the stylist will write to you with her recommendation for time and cost. It doesnt cost anthing to do this and you are under no obligation. The website is also full of info about micro pigmentation and how it works etc.
I was reading and saw that some people have concerns about getting a Headstyl.
The larger dots should be removed as soon as they appear. To remove them takes only a couple of minutes. If a larger spot appears after the treatment is complete it can also be removed. Larger dots usually come up because the stylist isnt experienced, and hasnt been given the correct training.
There is always a certain amount of fading but not much. This can be fixed in the touch up session. Its like having a work of art created on your head. it takes time to get it perfect so the stylists start with a lighter colour and darken as they move over your head from back to front finishing by giving you your hair line back.
The inks Headstyl use do not turn green. I cant tell you what they use as I cant give away the company secrets lol
If your hair starts to turn grey the stylist will add some lighter flects to your hair. However, if you have a headstyl you will always have to keep your hair short and the root of hour hair is a different colour and doesnt appear to look grey. If you do start turning grey you might want to keep your darker colour? its up to you its your head?
