(iWIDK By Allie Beauregard) – This inked up granny refused to let her health hold her back.
Sick of traditional wigs and fashion hats, and lacking self-esteem, 60-year-old Anne McDonald of Edinburgh spent twelve hours letting artist Pete Gillespie tattoo a black floral design on her entire scalp, left completely bald due to her alopecia.

Anne admitted she felt hideous at times and became depressed because of how she looked.
With a long-standing curiousity for body art, three years of being bald, and the support of her husband, five children, and grandchildren, Anne bit the bullet and got the $1,159 piece permanently etched into her head.
