Tattoos and Bald Heads



It happens. Some guys can pull off the bald look and some guys . . .well, not so much.  The researchers from GlaxoSmithKline conducted an  study of 1,125 men to test for hair loss factors in men. The results showed that 1 in 7 men are more likely to lose their hair based on the presence of a specific gene.


Most people believe that hair loss is passed down from the mother’s side (darn it Mom!). But, Dad is not totally off the hook in the hair loss equation.  While it’s true a key gene for baldness is in the X chromosome, which you get from your mother, it is not the only genetic factor in play. We all know men who are bald and have bald fathers or sons.  Science has proved, that a bald father increases the likely hood of the son going bald as well. (take that Dad!)  While most studies confirm male pattern baldness is genetically determined, scientists say baldness anywhere in your family line may be a sign of your own impending fate.  If you have a full head of hair, take a hard look around at your next family event,. If there are several bald men, who are blood related to you, odds are . . .you may be next.

Until recent years, men didn’t have many option to deal with male pattern baldness.  Some tried to copy the Burt Reynolds hair plugs, or they tried to pull off the Mr. Clean look. We all knew that high school teacher who pretended no one would notice a toupee and then there were the comb over crowd. While there are are a handful of  confident men who embrace going bald, the vast majority of men, want to keep their youthful head of hair.

Fast forward to today;  technology and the Tattoo Industry (insert applause here) have finally given men and women a new option.

Micro pigmentation, the fancy medical term for, hairline tattoo. This procedure is gaining popularity for both men and women. Basically, it is tattooing the actual “follicles” on the head to resemble short hairs and provide a visible and consistent hairline. An experienced technician will use a cartridge containing 3 needles working together to gently inject natural pigment into the 2nd dermal skin layer, in much the same manner as a traditional tattoo.  This technique gives the look of a full, youthful head of cropped hair.

Micro pigmentation can be used to:

  •  Give the look of a full, youthful head of cropped hair
  • Simulate a full-front, side and/or rear hairline
  • Fill-in on part-bald or fully bald heads
  • Permanently camouflage the symptoms alopecia
  • Camouflage scarring from previous hair transplant procedures
  • Hide scars, burns and birthmarks
  • Boost the visual effect of a hair transplant
