Jonathan Greene lost his hair to a battle with a brain tumor and the resulting chemotherapy that came with it. “It made me a different person. I became insecure for the first time in my life,” Greene recalled. “When I saw [scalp micropigmentation] it brought a tear to my eye. I didn’t know there was something available for me. I knew Rogaine was a scam. All those pills. I didn’t like the side effects that they had. But this just seemed the most appropriate for my lifestyle. Even women, walking down the street, they look at me totally different.”
Look at Jonathan now, as he sees the result of his second session of scalp micropigmentation treatment by Hairline Ink. His glowing testimonial of the life-changing service he received here at Hairline Ink is just one example of the thousands of lives that our team of All Star Practitioners are changing every day. Jonathan already has plans for his newfound confidence and swagger. He says his first order of business is to go back to the DMV, walk up to the counter with his ID, point to where it says “hair” and say: “It’s black, bitch. Not bald.” You tell ‘em Jonathan!
Practitioner: Alright, Johnathan Greene, how you doing?
Jonathan: I’m doing well how are you?
Practitioner: I’m good. How old are you?
Practitioner: 32. And what age did you start losing your hair at?
Jonathan: In my late twenties. Then I went through Chemo and radiation for a brain tumor, which was the icing on the cake and it never grew back after that. Loosing hair, it’s hard for a man. It made me a different person. I became insecure for the first time in my life. But, when I saw this, it brought tears to my eyes. I didn’t know there was something available for me.
New York City, 2-3 hours later.
Jonathan: What’s up?
Practitioner: How’s it going?
Jonathan: Awesome, man.
Practitioner: Tilt down a little bit, let them see the hairline. Yeah budy!
Jonathan: Check it out, live in full effect 93.7FM! So this is the first session, this isn’t even done yet! I looked in the mirror and I feel like a new man. Honestly it feels almost therapeutic, getting this treatment done; I was falling asleep. I’m very happy with it, I’m glad you took the time to go over it with me, because I was all over the place with where I wanted the hairline to be, but you kind of guided me in the right direction. So, you really helped me out with that. I’m glowing, I’m in awe.
New York City, one week later.
Jonathan: Can’t wait (for the second session), the first session already looks great. People don’t even know; they come up to me and rub my head. They say, “You still have stubble! You’re messing with me!” And I say, “No, it’s real!” They can’t understand the concept it’s a tattoo. I knew Rogaine was a scam; all those pills, I didn’t like the side effects that they had. I looked into other things, but this seemed most appropriate for my lifestyle; I wear a shaved head to begin with. I’m like, “it’s a hair tattoo,” and they couldn’t believe it because it looks so real. Even women, walking down the street, they look at me totally differently. This is only the first session, so I can’t wait to see the looks I get after the second session. Already the glare from my bald head is diminishing, and it’s not even done yet. This is the best thing that’s happened to me.
I’m not going to even look, I’m just going to let him do his thing; he’s an artist. I’m just going to let him go to town on my head, I can’t wait!
Practitioner: So you like the stronger color?
Jonathan: Yeah, I like the fuller look.
Practitioner: What you’re seeing here in the crown is the results of the previous session done in the first week. As you can see, we are going in between the spaces of the dots to insure a full density and a proper blending.
Alright guys, we’re here with Jonathan Greene at the end of the second session. Jon’s excited, I’m excited for him. I think he saw his reflection in my eyes. Right now we’re going to wipe down everything; you can clearly see we filled in his profile. This was an area where he was missing hair… and the areas where we blended it a little lower… and there it is.
Saddle up. Wait wait, let’s face this side.
Practitioner: Yeah I don’t wanna look at it. The moment of truth.
Oh my god! The heavens have parted and bestowed hair upon the! Oh my god! This is unbelievable … unbelievable. Thank you. You did a hell of a job man.
Practitioner: You’re a great client to work on, I really appreciate it.
Jonathan: No, I appreciate your help!
Practitioner: You sat there, you took it; you were easy going. I gave you what you wanted. So if you’re happy with it, that was your choice.
Jonathan: I love it man, it’s beautiful.
Jonathan: Jonathan Greene, second session, Hairline Ink NYC. It’s crazy! I just can’t believe this. It’s life changing. The artist did an awesome job; not only is he friendly, he’s professional. He truly is an artist. It exceeded my wildest expectations. The best possible scenario, this is like 10 times that. I’ve never seen it in person, and honestly the internet videos do not do it justice. You have to see it live and in full effect. It’s crazy! It looks real. [The practitioner] is awesome, he did a great job. I’m beyond words, I’m in such a state of elation. I feel like I’m on top of the world, I feel amazing.
I’m going back to the DMV, because I went to the DMV the other day to get a new picture. I put hair: black, and they decided to change it to bald. I am going back to the DMV when I get back to phoenix, and I’m getting my picture retaken. It’s black, bitch, not bald!
