When Philip Levine started losing his hair in his early twenties, instead of getting depressed about it, he decided to embrace his baldness and have fun with it. Levine hired Kat Sinclair, a professional body artist, to paint different colorful designs or scenes on his scalp weekly. Phil Levine's artistic creativity goes beyond using paint to decorate his head; he has adorned his head with tacks, 1000 Swarovski crystals, and even inserted acupuncture needles into his scalp in the shape of a butterfly.

Phil Levine's head-turned-art-canvas is turning heads wherever he goes. As an unexpected, but welcomed reaction, Phil is inspiring people suffering from alopecia and cancer, who are going bald as a result of their illness, to paint their own heads, which he says makes them feel empowered and special.

Now that's what I call using your noggin!
