A hair tattoo, or scalp micropigmentation, is a cosmetic tattoo that gives the illusion of a close buzz cut hairstyle on a bald head. The procedure can also be used to conceal the scars from hair transplantation or to make thinning hair seem thicker. In contrast to other tattoos, the procedure does not penetrate as deeply, and the inks used are less prone to colour change over time.
What actually is hair simulation?
It is a cosmetic procedure that replicates the look of real hair follicles. The treatment is a form of tattoo. Tattooing history is almost as old as human history, and yet, the scalp pigmentation that we know today is a rather newer technique and uses warm pigments (not tattoo ink) to cover the bald scalps and add density to thinning hair. It has been more popular and widely accepted in the past fifteen years or so.
