No. SMP can be referred to as a medical tattoo but the treatment is performed using a completely different technique to regular tattoos. The treatment is performed by our highly skilled SMP trained practitioner using specialist pigments created for the scalp only, not tattoo ink. The needles and equipment we use are also different to those used for regular tattoos.

We strongly advise against using regular tattoo inks or seeking treatment from anyone other than a highly trained SMP specialist as this can result in an undesired outcome which would only be removable by laser treatment.
