Micropigmentation …Medical Hairline Tattoo in New York

Micropigmentation…. the only affordable solution  for male pattern baldness

 Scalp Micropigmentation (medical hairline tattoo) is the ultimate in non-surgical male and female scalp grooming; an incredible life-changing treatment where natural pigments are applied at the epidermal level of the scalp to replicate the natural appearance of real hair follicles or strands – depending on your hair loss extent, and desired look. Our method is regarded as the best treatment of its kind available in the world today, using only natural pigments and application methods. Our practitioners are fully qualified to Diploma standard for permanent cosmetics and micro pigmentation treatments and recognise that your follicles don’t always naturally grow in the same direction, our team will replicate the natural eddies and idiosyncrasies of your hair pattern. They also understand that your hair follicles are not all the same shade, our team frequently use 3-4 shades of pigment to create the most realistic finish – giving a younger more confident hairline.

We asked Tom Rigden to tell us his story and why he chose to have micropigmentation.

 

“For me baldness was a horrible part of my life in my early twenties,  I tried everything offered out on the market including all the lotions, pills, and potions and you guessed it nothing worked! I spent a lot of time on Google looking for solutions and convinced my self that a hair transplant was the solution, after all celebrities rave about having it done so it must work right?

 

I remember traveling to a hair transplant clinic for a consultation thinking great I will get my hair back and the problem will be solved. The harsh reality couldn’t be further from what I expected. Being that I was a Norwood 6 on the scale it was going to cost me in excess of 20K and I wouldn’t even have a full head of hair, at best I would look “thinning” as the surgeon informed me. I still remember how horrible I felt traveling home that day I just felt like I wanted to lock my self in the house and never leave.

 

I carried out more Google searching determined to find a solution and discovered www.skalp.com this is the point when I could see some light at the end of the tunnel. I went along for a consultation in the Manchester clinic with a nice practitioner who also had micropigmentation. Like a lot of guys out there I was skeptical about having micropigmentation, I had lots of questions and hesitations and in fact it took me a
further 12 months to finally have the procedure carried out.
What impressed me about the practitioner at skalp now that I think back was he didn’t try and sell this to me, he simply told me all the pro’s and con’s and left me to go and think about it.”

 

Now that you have had micropigmentation Tom, can you tell us how it has made you feel?

 

“Well to put it in words I guess I would have to first say it has changed my life completely, I remember getting home after my first treatment and I just spent hours looking in the mirror and taking selfies of my head.

For me being bald was like carrying around a big dark cloud with me, when I looked in the mirror it was all I could see, I would say it had a very detrimental effect on my mental health, and general self image.

I remember this negative feeling lifting instantly when I looked at myself in the mirror even after treatment 1.

 

 

Now I am 1 year on from having my micropigmentation and I can honestly say it is the best thing I have ever done for myself, I would recommend it to any guy out there struggling with hair loss, it will change your life completely.

My top tip would be visit www.skalp.com today.”

Everard Baths Fire of 1977

everard-gay-bath-house-new-york

Today on Back to Stonewall,  they ran a piece  about the 1977 fire at the Everard Baths.   38 years ago, nine patrons (ages 17 to 40) were killed in a fire: seven from smoke inhalation, one from respiratory burns, and one who had jumped from an upper floor.

A sprinkler system had been installed at the baths but was not hooked up to a water supply.  The bathhouse had been ordered to install the sprinkler system a year ago, but the deadline for its operation was not until the coming July 27.

Despite total destruction of the top two floors, the two floors were rebuilt and The Everard Baths baths would reopen and stay open for another nine years until April of 1986 when it was closed by New York City mayor Ed Koch during the city’s campaign to close gay sec venues during the AIDS epidemic.
