AND THE WINNER IS...
My name is Dotty Jenkins and I am 45 years old.  I lost all my hair in less than 3 months, 7 years ago,  to a disease called Alopecia Areata.  I wore wigs for a few years but hated them because they were hot and heavy and I didn't feel like myself in them.  I decided to wear bandanas but then everyone thought I had Cancer and I got "pity" stares.  So, I decided since everyone stares anyways, I was going to give them something to stare at!!!  I tattooed my whole head and now when people stare and ask why I would tattoo my head, I get to educate them on Alopecia and then they don't think I'm so crazy!!!  I love my tattooed head and I have become quite an advocate for beautiful bald women everywhere!!!  I took the lemons that life dealt me and made lemonade.  Thank you for your time and I hope you like my tattooed head as much as I do.  It's absolutely beautiful!!!
