Head Tattoo by the New Hair Institute
Was just browsing baldingblog.com and found out that Dr. Rassman's clinic is offering their version of "head tattooing" or as they call it "scalp micro-pigmentation" LOL!
Anyway check out Dr. Rassman's response to some of the comments on the particular article, interesting.
And check out the price...six thousand to do a Norwood 7!
I'm not sure how that price compares to others shops out there but I think that's F'N ridiculous. $6,000 for some F'N dots tattoed on your head! C'MON!
I'm kinda shocked at the news because during my research for scalp pigmentation, I recall reading how much he was against the concept and very skeptical of its results
I'm not questioning the quality of the work or giving it a compliment,but I like to believe that HT doctors are honorary psychologist too because going bald/having a bad HT/bad HT scar is psychologically damaging. So I hope a level of honesty and understanding for your clients' plight is slightly more important than a check, yeah I know, wishful thinking
I'm not bashing anyone for having a change of heart, but after I read his article, I was under the impression that he was against it. And from reading the following comment, I was not the only one
"To be honestÖupon close inspection, it looks really bad. Itís clearly fake. And I agree with how itís odd that you went from being really against scalp tattooing to all the sudden offering it yourself.
Donít worry, you were right to begin with. It doesnít look good, as evidenced by the pic you shared with us. From a distance, yes, it looks okay. If I were standing within 5 feet of the guy, I would think he looked weird."
That's why I was a little pissed when I saw this.
I read a few negative responses form Dr. Rassman regarding follicle tattooing just recently (within the last 6 months)
Why the change of heart? I think we all know...$
Come on, no respected doctor would offer hair micro tattooing as a legitimate option for hair restoration. I have always felt that Dr. Rassmanís blog was nothing more then a marketing gimmick and this only proves it. I have read him contradict himself so many times I have lost count. This is just the icing on the cake. I guess hair transplantation is not paying his bills. This is shameful.

Until they have a cure for baldness, we can't just ignore the various legit alternatives to a complete cure for baldness. If that's the case, then HT procedure wouldn't have advanced as much through the years
Itís a head tattoo! This is not a proven technique. Like with any tattoo the color will fade and change color in time. This is a temporary fix at best and has until now been pushed on these forums by tattoo parlors not doctors. I think that itís irresponsible for a person who claims to be a healer to offer this to uninformed people who are seeking legitimate treatments for hair loss. Just reading your defense of this shows how desperate people are and Rassman knows this and looks as this a a cash grab. Donít be stupid people, this is a bad idea and you would have to be a fool to tattoo your head! I canít even believe that Dr. Rassman has the audacity to promote this.

Even worse then that, the tattoos will fade and turn blue. They will have to be redone every few years. Do you know how damaging and expensive that can be? Youíre causing micro scaring that might interfere with future treatment AND you have a TATOO on your head!!! This is nothing more then greed, but Iím dumbfounded that a doctor would be brazen enough to try to pawn this off as a legitimate alternative to a hair transplant.

It makes no sense to do this to normal scalps and for this reason I must agree with Delphi about this being very irresponsible for a doctor to sell to patients. I would venture to say that itís unethical.
