The Ink Toupee

With all of the technological leaps, medical strides and social progress that we have made in the last few decades it is no surprise that the tattoo industry is evolving in tow.

The tattoo industry has rotated 360 degrees once again not as stigmas or punishment but a beautiful celebration of art (though this time around every person from every walk of life can and may have ink). One of the more recent strides tickles me in every way, and put a smile on my face all day!

I do not believe that hair loss is cosmetic. From a young age women are raised seeing images and examples of women with silky, gorgeous hair...hair is just one of the ingrained beauty trademarks. Men are raised seeing the same images. It is the Dad or the old guy that has the ring top or comb over, not the successful, attractive man that most aspire to be (according of course to media representation) or that grace the Old Spice ads on TV.

So why then is it unreasonable to think that balding for both men and women can be devastating their self-esteem? A Cancer patient must go through this traumatic rite of passage and it is heart-wrenching at best. Many men and women also suffer every single day with diseases like Alopecia, hormone deficiencies and more that cause thinning, balding and loss of hair, sometimes permanently.

Laser treatments, transplants, medical therapies and natural remedies are used every day to treat hair loss. Tattoo has now entered the ring with permanent ink to mimic the natural hairline and it is incredible! Men, more so than women will see a real benefit to this solution, as it is cost effective and there are less chances of complication and virtually no chance of rejection by the body.

This is a new type of head tattoo and not looping snakes, a fantastically real brain, tribal, flowers...the sky is the limit to the images and people who have tattooed, what I imagine to be an incredibly sensitive area of the body. The ink toupee, shaded and stroked to look incredibly similar to the appearance of short hair, is being used to fill in balding patches and spots and unlike the fear of wigs shifting, or coming off or the bad toupee that everyone will notice, ink is for life.

Superficial? Maybe for those of us lucky enough not to ever have experienced or thought of having the hairline of our grandfathers or fathers.
