If you are a man who has started to lose your hair and you notice that it has made you feel more self-conscious about yourself than you ever have felt before, you may need to take your hairline into your own hands so that you can feel more confident about yourself. Going through surgery to try to get the hair to regrow in the areas where you have lost it can be very expensive and painful. Instead, you may want to consider getting a scalp tattoo.
Scalp tattoos are typically viewed as being taboo tattoos that people look down upon, but if done properly, a scalp tattoo can actually hide the fact that you are balding. Many people do not realize that tattoos do not always have to create a design or feature bright colors. You can get a tattoo of simply dots that look like hair follicles.
In order for the tattoo to look like your naturally growing hair, you need to shave your hair as close to your scalp as you can. The tattoo will blend in with your other hair, and the only way that someone will be able to see where your hair stops and the tattoo starts is if they rub your head. Most people will not randomly rub your head, so getting the tattoo should help you to feel more confident about your look.
When you go to get the tattoo, the tattoo artist will match the color of ink that will be used for the tattoo to your naturally growing hair. If you want a specific hair line, you need to let the tattoo artist know before they start. You do not want the hairline to be too straight and even, or it may be obvious that it is fake.
Getting a scalp tattoo may be a bit painful, but it will be well worth it once you have more confidence about the way you look. It is important to put proper ointment on the tattoo during the healing process and protect your tattoo from the sun to ensure that it does not fade over time. You could simply wear a hat or put sunblock over your entire head before going out.
You may need to have more tattoos added to your head as you lose more hair to ensure that no one can tell that you are balding. Touch ups will take very little time to have done. To learn more, contact a company like Scalp Amplified Studios.
