11 weeks after session 3.
Finally Did it
Posted 26 April 2016 - 06:53 PM
My scars were old plug scars, after the third session ink has held well.
First session we did 22 on top and 14 at the back of the head.
2nd session was 7 days after first and we used 20 on top and 8 on the back.
3rd was 6 1/2 weeks after the 2nd and we went with 8 all over the head since 8 had held well and some 18 on top.
I went back 3 1/2 months after session 3 to get an assessment to see if I needed another session and the ink had held well so we did not want to mess with it. I will go back one more time before my warranty is up to get another assessment. As far as I can tell the ink has held well.
I had session 1 on Friday, had not told my wife about it, she was shocked was an understatement and she announced to me that an Aunt was visiting tomorrow Saturday from far and we have to go visit her. Was not looking forward to that, the whole family was going to be there around 8 people, people who had known me all my life with full head of hair. Could not sleep all night dreading the whole situation there was no way of getting out of this.
Got into the car next morning put a hat on, ten minute drive along the way I decided F**K it got to face this might as well be today. Took off the hat walked in no hat no hair bald head. People were shocked some asked why I shrugged my shoulders why not and that was it no more questions and no funny looks. I was still a little red not much thought. If some one had asked about redness I would have said its a reaction to a moisturizer. But no one said a thing. Back of the head where the scars were I kept to the wall so no one saw.
On Monday I went to work, there was no redness, I mostly work alone but do have people coming in and out and not one person has said anything or any funny looks.
Second session was also on Friday and I went to work on Monday. No hair is a shock to some people after that no questions are asked.
If I remember correctly the redness lasted about a day and in about 3 days I could see the ink shrinking to a point where it looked like hair follicles. But it is little different for everyone. I think you can wash and shave your head on 4th or 5th day.

Today in New York it was 85 degrees. I could not wait to take my Bald Tattooed Sunscreened Head out in the Sun.
Probably been decades since I have done that and enjoyed it.
Haha. Great post! So you will be delighted at the forecasts of a heatwave this summer... although if it is already hitting 85 in May maybe not. .

Wow! Love this result. I don't think anyone would give this a suspicious look. Not sure how old you are but the hairline seems in great position and people would maybe think you've got a little recession and that's they reason why you've shaved it down. Congrats!!
