The scalp is an interesting location for a tattoo. It is also an extremely painful one. For people who are bald, it draws attention to the head. So if you see someone with an eye-catching scalp tattoo, that is one bold person! Some girls get it underneath their hair, and then when they shave parts of their hair to reveal the hidden tattoo, it’s quite a treat! You have to be able to tolerate a decent amount of pain to get a scalp tattoo. Imagine the feeling of that tattoo machine against your skull? Yikes! That is commitment.
