BIRMINGHAM, England, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- A British company said it is opening salons across England dedicated to the tattooing the scalps of bald men to make it look like they have short hair.

Company HIS Hair, or Hair-Ink-Skin, based in Birmingham, said it is opening facilities across England to allow men who have lost their hair to give the appearance of hair growing back using a tattooing technique applying different shades of pigment to the scalp to emulate the look of a buzz cut, The Sun reported Friday.

Founder Ian Watson said he developed alopecia and lost all of his hair in his mid-20s. He said the idea for the procedure came to him when he had his sister-in-law, Ranbir Rai-Watson, use a fine pen to draw dots on his scalp.

Celebrity stylist Adee said he became one of the firm's first clients.

"I was 24 when I started losing my hair. I got behind this product because I know it looks good," he said. "Going bald didn't particularly bother me but there are guys out there who are literally suicidal about it."
