As we age, our hair naturally falls out. There are many remedies for losing your hair, none of which grow it back once it's gone. SMP, which is short for Scalp Micro Pigmentation, is a non-surgical permanent solution to hair loss. It's affordable and provides realistic results. 

Thousands of men & women around the world are finding SMP as the perfect solution to adding density to thinning hair, re-creating hairlines, filling scars & can also provide the same look as a short shaven head. THE BEST PART IS IT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE REAL HAIR!



Located on the beautiful Gold Coast of Australia, we offer a premium SMP service which is guaranteed instant results for hair loss. SMP is a hair loss treatment, which is the process of tattooing thousands of micro dots onto the scalp, where is is balding or thinning to create the illusion of a thick head of hair where the hair follicle no longer exists. 

Our Studio is owned and run by one of Australia's leading SMP Artists Nathan Tiv. Who has the upmost passion for his craft. Prides himself on the level of service and techniques he has learnt from many international artists and courses. To provide a unique blend and touch to each and every client he has performed his service on by individualising each approach to suit any style of hair loss. 



I'm the founder and head artist here at East Coast Hair Ink, located on the Gold coast in Queensland, Australia, where my journey began to become an SMP (scalp micro-pigmentation). Artist was early 2021 after many years of trialling many different lines of work. From various building trades, i.e. Bricklayer, Roof restoration and general labourer on building sites, then transitioning over to a sales career Selling cars at a well-known auto group on the gold coast. Over those years, in particular, I realised 1. I don't want to be slaving away at a job site in the Queensland heat. Secondly, I had a knack for building rapport and providing exceptional customer service in my sales career.

Through that part of my life, I learned a tremendous amount about the career I was in and myself. I found that it just wasn't providing that spark I wanted. Fast forward to 2019, my next career move was to Personal training. I had always had a passion for fitness but felt my true calling was to help people feel better and be better versions of themselves. Unfortunately, due to the saturated market on the gold coast, it wasn't financially viable to continue. This is where my step into barbering started.

This was a big eye-opener for me as it was such a sensational feeling helping men look and feel better after their haircut. Not only that, but hearing the stories of men and what some do go through it gave me the drive to help more. I have always been an advocate for mental health and have seen how some men who would come through were affected by their thinning hair. So I began my research to see what was out there. I came across Hairline solutions in Australia. Jana and Shannon,the leading and most

well-respected SMP Artists in the country, worked and trained me

to become the SMP artist I am today.

And what can I say? The satisfaction I received from the first

SMP treatment and the confidence it gave the individual I

performed the treatment on was phenomenal. From that

moment, I knew this was the career for me. I enjoy it

thoroughly, as it is not just about the confidence I get to

give someone going through hair loss. But to hear and

talk to my clients and have those chats person to person

and learn about different cultures and views on life. Not 

only that, but it is an art form and being able to express

myself In a way that replicates realistic hair. At the same

time, I provide such a confidence boost for my clients.
