Medical Tattooing

Medical Tattooing is the process of implanting medically certified pigment into the skin creating definition, shading and colour.

Medical tattooing can help improve:

  • Hairloss patches & thinning hair
  • Eyebrow & eyelash thinning and loss
  • Scarring & skin grafts
  • Lack of pigment/hypo-pigmentation
  • Nipple/areola re-pigmentation
  • Port wine stains
  • Alopecia


If you’re looking to enhance your features, be on-trend with fashions or make a statement, semi-permanent make up can deliver stunning results that last.

Semi-permanent-makeup can help improve:

  • Eyeliner
  • Eyebrows
  • Lips

Skin Camouflage

Camouflage is a specifically designed cream to help cover discolouration of burns, scars, birthmarks and pigmentation. It is fully waterproof, transference proof and can be applied daily without any problem to the skin.

Skin camouflage can help cover:

  • Scars & Stretch marks
  • Birthmarks (port wine stains)
  • Rosacea & acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Bruises & post-surgical discolouration
  • Vitiligo
  • Age spots & thread veins
  • Hyper pigmentation & uneven skin tone

More confidence. Renewed optimism and motivation. The chance to focus on other areas of your life.

Specialist Medical Tattooing, Permanent Makeup & Skin Camouflage offers a light at the end of the tunnel if you’re struggling to cope with your visible difference, find it dominates your life and impacts on your confidence and mental well-being.

Your visible difference may be generic, from birth, due to injury, surgery, medical treatment, transgender surgery or self-harm. Whatever the reason, if it’s stopping you from living life to the full, it’s every reason to look at a solution.

For most patients, this is a journey. A medical, psychological, cosmetic, professional and social one. That’s because having a visible difference that causes you distress, can eat into every area of your life.

But it’s a positive journey. A course of treatments is preferred and there will be retouches and adaptations over time. I’ll be with you every step of the way; explaining the options and results you can expect, listening to your concerns, supporting you, providing you with the highest levels of quality care and offering you state-of-the art-treatments and expertise.

A different level of care

Based in conveniently located, state of the art specialist skin clinics, your surroundings will reflect the level of comfort and care you’ll receive. I understand patients may have suffered in silence for years, and taken considerable time and courage to take this brave step. Treating you with empathy, sensitivity and discretion, as both a Medical and Cosmetic professional, I operate to professional standards and use market-leading, break-through procedures and treatments that are the forefront of the industry.

At the heart of my service is a strong medical understanding of the body. Every person will react differently to treatments and therefore the consultation at the start of your journey will explore the options and results you can realistically expect.

A wide range of skin conditions will present at my clinic. I am passionate about exploring and trialing new treatment options, and with technology and research advancing all the time, I can help more people with a wider variety of challenging conditions.

Get closer to confidence

Specialist Medical Tattooing and Semi-permanent Makeup can reduce visible differences by inserting specific colours of pigment into the treatment area. The skin changes as we age, so must the pigment, so the treatment will need to be retouched in line with the natural changes to your skin.

My aftercare service is incredibly important to the success of your journey. Through check-ups and an ongoing relationship, I can learn how your skin reacts; revising and developing your treatment accordingly.

Through meticulously and expertly administered tattoo treatments, you can take that step closer to self-esteem, confidence and a life not dominated by your visible difference.

What my patients say...

“I wanted to thank you for that call and for sending this message, it played a part in my decision to admit myself to psychiatric care. Your in a unique position to help people in a vulnerable time in their life and I’m glad you had the moral tenacity to do so. A lot of others wouldn’t. I hope that more people in the world had an aptitude and attitude like you do and you helped me realize that my predicament was a cause of my problem and that getting to the root of the issue would be much more beneficial to me at this time. Thanks again for being such a great individual.”
