You can’t make out anything there mate to be fair. Would be nice to see scar before repair to see difference if u have pic
Will try and find one for you buddy might take me a while though because if I did take one it would have been a long time ago (dont tend to take pics of my scar) so will have to try and find one.....will have a look though for you.

Below 1st pic is my scar before Shapiro medical repaired it by scar revision.

2nd pic is my scar revision.

3rd pic shows scar a few months after at grade 2 length (note it's still red as it wasnt long after surgery but shows it's still visible if I go too short.

4th pic shows it's totally disguised if I go anything above grade 2

Finally 5th pic shows really short with SMP which you've seen.

Shapiro did an amazing job to be fair as I can go pretty short without the SMP but with it I'm able to go super short.

Hi Jimbob,

Congratulations, the tattoo looks awesome.

It does a great job of masking the scar and I think you educated us all on here.

Cheers

Hi Jimbob,

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your experience and posting photo's here, I am actually in a similar situation to you only I had an FUE and want to be able to shave my hair down, I didn't get the results I wanted from the hair transplant and just want out now and have exactly the same idea as you.. tattooing the back of my head! your tattoo came out amazing and I am actually surprised how well it covered, looks great! Are you happy with it? I'm in the process of looking for designs that I like.. I actually only registered on here to reply to you as this thread has given me hope that I can be free again.

Hi Jimbob,

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your experience and posting photo's here, I am actually in a similar situation to you only I had an FUE and want to be able to shave my hair down, .
I was under the impression people chose FUE over FUT so they could shave their hair down after surgery. Why do you need a tattoo if you haven't got a strip scar?
