A British clinic has come up with a novel technique of disguising baldness in men, tattooing the bald scalp with tiny colored pigments.

The thinning hair condition affects around 6.5 million men in the UK with over 40 percent of them having noticeable hair loss by the age of 35.

Previously the options on the market have been pretty pricey with celebrities such as Wayne Rooney opting for a 25,000-pound hair transplant, but now the budget tattoo means that more men can cover their bare heads - as long as they don't mind looking like a skinhead, the Daily Star reported.

Pigment dots are tattooed into the hair follicles and from a distance it gives the illusion of an even 'just shaved' look. This look is popular among celebrities such as David Beckham and Wentworth Miller.

The non-invasive procedure, which costs between 500 to 3,000 pounds, was developed by Ian Watson, who founded HIS (Hair-Ink-Skin) Hair after he developed alopecia in his mid-twenties, following the tragic death of his 32 year-old brother Paul, from cancer.

After he lost his hair he asked his wife to draw black dots onto his scalp using fine ink pen and the idea for a more permanent solution developed from there.

The treatment is a non-invasive procedure requiring no anaesthetic, incisions or adhesives, involves nothing more than mild discomfort. It leaves no scars and is perfectly adaptable for if and when you experience further hair loss, or if your style preferences change.
