Early History of Scalp Micropigmentation Pigments
In 1984, Weston created a line of natural organic colored pigments for permanent cosmetics for women. After utilizing commercially-made semi-permanent cosmetic pigments and seeing that they changed color to blues and greens over time, he was always trying to correct the colors. Weston took what he learned from apprenticing under a master tattoo artist in Hong Kong while in the Navy in the late 1970’s. He applied his “old school” knowledge to developing shades of colors derived from an organically-based powder that would not turn to the blues and greens as cosmetic pigments and regular tattoo inks.
