Hair Tattoos: Because Regular Tattoos Are For Wusses

hair-tattoo
So you say you've tried pretty much every iteration of inking out there and are looking for new ways to tattoo yourself? (You're not Kat Von D, are you?) Then let us introduce you to the latest wave in body decoration: Hair tattooing. To get your 'do designed, a hair tattoo expert takes to your mane with a hair trimmer and creates a follicular work of art by shaving hair into the pattern of your choice. It's unfortunately (fortunately?) not permanent, but the tattoo will last as long as it takes for your hair to grow in. Intrigued? Check out a live demonstration and score your own design this week at Ricky's NYC — they'll be showcasing Babyliss Pro's Dennis Joseph and his sick shaving skills.
