Scalp micropigmentation (SMP) is a type of hair restoration treatment for those having experienced hair loss. The procedure replicates hair follicles by inserting small deposits of pigment on the scalp, offering the appearance of either a shaven look or a fuller head of hair. Other names you may have heard of for this treatment include hair tattoo, medical tattoo and scalp tattoo.

If you’re dealing with baldness, thinning hair, scar camouflage and alopecia, hair tattoo restoration can help you. We select the correct pigment by diluting it to match any hair colour, skin tone or complexion. Hair loss can have an impact on any age group, but gets more severe over time. Research has shown that over 40% of both men and women aged between 18 and 50 years old have experienced moderate to extreme hair loss. Hair micropigmentation offers a great alternative to other options such as medication, hair transplants, hair replacement systems or thickening hair fibres. Scalp micropigmentation can offer a long-term hair loss, that is affordable, reliable and offers no long-term maintenance.

A permanent solution, it is vital that you decided what is best for you. It is worth considering that scalp micro pigmentation is the fastest growing hair solution in both the UK an US, especially within the last three years. Looking at the results from previous happy clients, it’s easy to see why this method of hair restoration is so popular now. You can notice the results instantly, and the treatment is non-invasive, so you can enjoy it without any awkward phases.


Scalp Micro Pigmentation is used to camouflage all types of scars on the scalp left from operations, injuries and hair transplants. The most common scar camouflage is the concealment of hair transplant scars. There are 2 types of hair transplants, FUE (follicular Unit Extraction), and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). These images are an example of a scar left from an FUT hair transplant. It’s 12cm in length, and 2cm wide. SMP has significantly improved the look to conceal the scar, SMP compliments a hair transplant to conceal the scars.


Whether your hairline is receding, you suffer from Alopecia, or if your hair is thinning or you’re balding, the shaven look offers the appearance of a full hair of hair that has been shaved. It can provide a quick fix solution to boost your confidence and appearance.  Offering a bespoke and personalised service, we will discuss your desire hairline and look at examples of how your hairline looked previously to offer optimum hair restoration.


As an alternative to the shaven look, we can also offer density treatment, which is also popular with women as it is a type of scalp micropigmentation that is more hair that is starting to thin and a means of covering small bald patches on the scalp. Density treatment provides clients with the appearance of a fuller and thicker head of hair. Using the latest technology to deposit a small amount of pigment within the epidermis of the scalp, we are able to create the look of full head of hair, making your hair look denser.

  • positive review  Hi I came to Skulltec after doing my homework and quickly realised that this company is the real deal. The service is professional, honest, bespoke and most importantly it delivered real life changing results. I cannot sing the praises of Skulltec enough the treatment/service had been utterly superb. The technical craft that Barry provides is so valuable and he mixes these professional attributes with simply being a real, grounded individual who also has undergone this treatment. I’ve found Barry very easy to be open with and discuss the process without feeling embarrassed. You know when speaking to him how passionate he is about SMP and he wants to work hard to deliver the best results for you. I’m so deeply honoured to have Barry carry out the SMP as he is a safe pair of hands. I now call myself a SKULLTEC MAN or person if we want to be politically correct. I wear my SMP with pride. I’m so proud to point my hair transformation to family and friends. No longer am I quietly paranoid about my high hairline and bald spot that made me feel older, amongst other things. With my hair shaven in to compliment the process I feel I have my identity back. I’m just smiling on the inside. Decades of mild self loathing, etc have been swept away by Barry. I’m so, so grateful as this is life changing treatment. The treatment itself is not even sore! It’s very relaxing. If you are facing balding then hit it right back with SKULLTEC. Go get a consultation now it will be the best decision you will ever make! I’m now going to be a lifetime customer and so glad Barry is there for the journey.👍👍👍

    5 star review  This treatment is a game changer! I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking about having Scalp Micropigmentation. To give some background I have experienced hair thinning and partial loss for the last 5 years or so due to an apparent iron deficiency, I tried lots of various potions and lotions but nothing worked. This resulted in resorting to coloured sprays and dry shampoos to give colour and volume which was completely demoralizing. After a bit of research I came across Skulltec, contacted Barry and arranged a visit. From the first consultation with Barry I knew I was in safe hands, he clearly takes a lot of pride in his work! The procedure for me was relatively painless and Barry will keep you chatting and laughing through the sessions which puts you at ease especially if you are nervous. The results are fantastic and definitely worth it! For me being female it's made me feel like I have my crown and glory back which is so important for a woman, for me it is what it means to be female. If you are considering this treatment.. go for it.. you won't regret it! So last but by no means least.. Thank you Barry!

    5 star review  Just finished my second session and couldn't wait another week to write this review. Absolutely over the moon with the smp. After being really self conscious about my thinning hair and going bald i now dont need to worry about it!, I now have a perfect hairline and am over the moon at the work thats been done. The sessions have been great theres no pain, just good banter and a laugh. from the second I walked in the studio I knew I was in good hands, the professionalism is next level. No one has been able to tell ive had it done even at close range! Massive massive thank you for sorting my head out! Edit: session 3 finished. I have the best hairline I could ever ask for everyone ive told cant believe it even when inspecting up close. I actually couldnt be happier and cannot thank barry enough! Wish I done it years ago!!

    5 star review  My son suffers with Alopecia Unaversalis and having been through all the options available for him, I knew this was the one that could possibly change his life. We had researched this treatment for a year, I knew what an excellent finished result looked like and I would have travelled anywhere to get that for him. I contacted Barry having seen his work and I am so glad I did. From the very first point of contact I was fully informed and the support my son recieved was second to none. My son connected with Barry straight away, he wasn't worried and with each session he was amazed but also wishing for the next to see the finished result. The three appoinments were spaced a week apart and we were fully informed of the procedure on that day. The finished result is amazing, more than I could have wished for and this procedure has made such a difference. I know for the next stage in his life he will be strong and confident. The procedure has been completed to such a high standard and you would think his hair had just been shaved, if you are considering having this treatment - you won't get a better finished result. I highly recommend Skulltec! Thank you for doing such an amazing job, and making such a difference to his life! �
