Baldom by dragongirlhellfire Baldom by dragongirlhellfire
I got my head shaved this morning! So I drew all of my bald characters (that I can remember and that I've finished designing).

I have a thing for baldness I guess??

Dee is definitely the happiest character here, though.
I mean Em's mum has cancer (she knows she's dying at this point so she's like 'SCREW IT I'M GONNA SMOKE' but then she feels too bad about everything and stops again anyway), the couple in the corner are in a POW camp, and that blue lady is extremely bitter about stuff.

But I have a bald head and I am super happy about it!
I've been wanting to do this for YEARS.
The wind feels so different on my head. Oh my god. :happybounce:

You know what's weird though? How many people this haircut seems to involve BESIDES MYSELF.
My work was not happy about it (which is why I didn't shave my head last year like I was planning to, but I have a month off now so carpe diem), my sister has been campaigning ardently for me to not shave my head (or at least do it after her birthday), my brother was using 'Friends' episodes as evidence to show me that nobody will like me if I shave my head and I won't get a boyfriend. One of my friends has been very unhappy everytime I mention this. The lady at the hairdresser was like "what, really, why the hell would you want to do that" and seemed super doubtful as she shaved my head. (She kept stopping and asking "Are you ok?" as if I was going to burst into tears. I know people do that, but I was sitting there grinning!)
PEOPLE, WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM, IT'S MY HEAD, AND IT'S JUST HAIR, IT WASN'T THAT GREAT, AND IT'S GOING TO GROW BACK
NOT THAT BIG A DEAL
honestly

I get why people whose hair just falls out are unhappy, I wouldn't want that. I like the look, but I have the freedom to choose it.

YOU SHAVED YOUR HEAD.

I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO DO THAT FOR AGES.


It is almost pathetic how much people care about hair. Especially other people's hair! It's pretty much the most un-permanent body mod you could do. Why does everyone not experiment ridiculously with it!?! :D

Do it! It's the greatest!
I KNOW!?!?!?!?! What's it to you, foo!

Maybe you should cut your own hair
coz that can be so funny
It doesn't cost any money and it always grows back
hair grows even after you're dead

I think one day I would like to shave my head, though I don't think my bf will like it! XD Either that or cut it really short.
Did you shave yours just 'cause, or for any particular reason?

Also, I have too many bald characters too, most not on dA >< My poor Finny... he used to have a lot of hair. XD and then I got lazy and made excuses.

Haha, yeah, the girl I was dating a few months ago was very clear in saying she wouldn't be attracted to me nearly as much without my hair :lol:

Just cos, really. I just like the look and wanted to try it out, really :shrug: And it's great!

Hehe :XD:

XD if I shave my head, same reason! That, and I have horrible hair. |D (Well, not horrible hair. Just hair that gets greasy quickly, which, by itself, isn't a problem, but coupled with the fact that I have a very sensitive, dry scalp...)

I think it's great that you shaved your head since that's obviously what you wanted. :)
Besides this though, I can't keep from feeling intensely curious about why you want to be bald.
So why?

Frankly, though, I'm just as curious as to why people were so against it.

Look, I'm not really sure! :shrug: I like the look, and I wanted to try it out; it's an idea that's been growing for a few years. I just wanted to do it. (And it's pretty great! :D )

Yeah, I think it's one of those things that has a kind of image associated with it, I don't know? Women aren't usually bald.
My sister is unhappy because she's pretty straight in some ways and doesn't really like too much deviation from the norm, especially when it's associated with her. Also she's kind of critical of me in general.
My work is unhappy because of the image thing, I guess. A lot of their customers are fairly old people.

My brother was a volunteer coordinator for the Red Cross once and made a deal with his team that if they completed a task he would shave his head. They did and so did he. The next day was his High School reunion, the guys who liked him in school thought it was cool and then a guy who hated him in school was there with his wife and tried bully him about it and my brother with his friends behind him just looked at the guy and said, "Thanks. My last bout of chemotherapy and you act like this."
The guys wife just ripped on the guy and the friends took the cue and really let loose and the poor guy spent the whole evening trying to make up to my brother and his non existent cancer, but m brother just let him twist in the wind.

Baldness is awesome I have too many bald characters as well, haha
I shave my hair only to a few millimeters though, because baldness and army boots are a BAD mix in German speaking countries. My family still has concerns about my hair. Weird.

It is because people is not used to bald people, it is supposed to mean or you are old, sick or for there was a kind a catastrophe that make you bald. It is just cultural conception .w.

It must be cool to not have hair, you don't have to buy shampoo or comb it!. Your hair will grow like new :3!

I know, but it's one of those things that depends pretty much entirely on culture and doesn't make a lot of difference, otherwise. People are weird, the way we do this! :D

It is pretty cool! The hairdresser thought I should still shampoo my scalp, though. But oh my gosh it dries INSTANTLY! No more sitting around dripping on things!

Yup, but i mean it in the occidental vision, because we know about those buddhist priest (that is how they are called?), they are bald for their vision and its not wrong.

I bet it feels cool!

I think the worst part about shaving your head/having your hair fall out is that when it grows back (if it will), it won't ever come back the same texture or color. It'll be rougher, coarser, and darker.

I love my hair, which is why I'd never do that for fear of it never coming back the same.

Yeah, I considered that, and while I did like my hair, I wasn't all that concerned.
Thing is, my hair was nice, but it was super boring. It was a very nondescript medium brown, and it was this... not really straight but it wasn't wavy either. Very ordinary.
So, either it will not be different enough to be a noticeable change, or it will be maybe more interesting.

If it was a really great colour or great curls or dead straight or something, I might have had second thoughts. But I'm not too worried :)

Well, good, then. It's good you thought about it. Most everyone else wouldn't have.

I wouldn't ever do it, though. I love my hair.

I noticed that too. People are wierd, they seem to think that shaving your head means the world is going to end or something. Good on you, show all them haters THAT THE OPPRESSION OF HAIR MUST STOP! STAND FOR YOUR RIGHT TO HAIRLESNESS!
Are you like me and have people wanting to touch your head all the time when you have it shaved? Last time i felt like a buddah with how many people wanted to pat my head

:icondragongirlhellfire:
dragongirlhellfire Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013   Traditional Artist
What even is the deal! :no:
And haha, no, nobody wants to touch it! My mum did when I first came home, and that's it. I keep trying to get my sister to touch it but she won't. (So I rub it on her when she least expects it)
Admittedly, I haven't been anywhere except home, the shops and the station, so not a lot of acquaintances have been within reach of it. Or even know about it.
