Can hair grow back after you get a tattoo on your head?

Asked by warribbons (606 points ) January 16th, 2010

I was just wondering if hair could grow back after you get a tattoo on, for example, the back of your head.

I’m pretty sure that the tattooing process does not damage hair follicles (I’ve certainly seen plenty of hairy tattooed forearms, etc).

Aren’t we helpful. What excellent decision making process you have here. I’m in awe. Shock. Astounded.

That would defeat the purpose of the tattoo on your head .. unless it’s rabbit and you wanted it to be fuzzy.

@Saschin it would be like wearing a shirt over your tattoo, but it would take far more effort to cover and uncover

Um, that was hardly an endorsement of the idea.

Yes. My grandson’s father has a Raider tattoo on the back of his stupid head, and hair grows on it (well, it is well fertilized).

Hey, i have a question: if i get a tattoo on my eyeball, will i go blind? ha

Hair grows where skin has been tattooed on other parts of the body, so I’d imagine it wouldn’t be different on the head.

No, they’ve done it a few times, John.

@delirium My daughter has a friend who had this done. Frankly, I would wonder if someone with that much blue in their eyes has been around too much spice in Dune.

i want a tattoo on my eye now.

delirium's avatar

Hahahahahaha, excellent point. I… I am not in a position to judge, but I’ll admit to having wondered similar things once or twice.

syz's avatar

@delirium ok, that link totally freaked me out

delirium's avatar

Heh, sorry. Yeah. It can do that.

Get a treasure map tattooed all over your scalp, then with your dying words say, “Shave my head.”

. . . I really liked the movie Cutthroat Island as a kid.
