    Hi @chiefzulu12
    There’s no skin between the brain and the skull, skin is only on the outside of the body.

    There are 3 layers of tissue between the brain and the skull though, called the Meninges. This is where the term Meningitis comes from – it’s an infection of the meninges.

    Hope this answers your question :)
