Adult film actor François Sagat at the Folsom Fair 2006. Sagat is well known for his scalp tattoo.

A hair tattoo, or scalp micropigmentation,[1] is a form of tattoo that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head.[2][3] The procedure can also be used to conceal the scars from hair transplantation or to make thinning hair seem thicker.[4] In contrast to other tattoos, the procedure does not penetrate as deeply, and the inks used are less prone to colour change over time.[4]
