Thank you Erik for the wonderful job you did for me! This was an A+ experience from the consultation to the actual procedure. I would tell anyone thinking about doing this to jump in and get it done without hesitation at Ahead Ink. It feels liberating to no longer worry about appearing bald. It looks so real and natural!

During my search for the right person to do my SMP, I found that many places were overpriced, under-informed and just in a rush to get my money without addressing my questions or concerns. I found Erik on YouTube and he struck me as being a person who truly understands the craft that is SMP. I called him and found a true gentleman who was knowledgeable, patient and understanding. I decided to go through with the procedure, and I must say I’m thoroughly pleased. During the 3 sessions I got to know Erik the human being. He is a true professional who is obsessed with details, order and cleanliness all while being extremely pleasant. Erik is a true professional and a man of great integrity. All at a great price! Most importantly the results of his work are amazing. I love my new look. Go with Erik, you can’t go wrong.

I’ve wanted to do SMP about four years ago and went on a few consultation but never felt comfortable enough to continue the process so I ended up giving up. But a few months ago I decided to start the process again and look for a good SMP artist I came across ahead ink after reading reviews and seeing Erik‘s work online I decided to make an appointment as soon as I got to his office Erik was very professional and didn’t make the process feel rushed. During the consultation he explained every concern I had which made my decision easy to do SMP with him. I am glad I waited this long to find the right artist to do my SMP Erik is a true professional and great artist.

I can’t believe I didn’t do it sooner!!! Erik was amazing, if you considering micropigmentation, he is your guy. He was very knowledgeable and expert when it comes to this procedure. I am beyond happy with the results. He will make you feel so comfortable, you won’t ever consider anyone else for the procedure. Very reasonably priced as well. From the moment I walked through the door to the moment I left, he made me feel very comfortable and answered any questions or concerns I had. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Ask him how he studied this technique in Italy, because there is awesome story behind it 🙂 Erik don’t be mad at me for spilling your beans.

I first visited Ahead Ink in July of 2019. I had been researching micropigmentation services since 2018. I visited some locations in NYC but wasn’t fully sold on whether I wanted to get it done. Then I visited Erik last year. It was a pleasure meeting someone so honest from the very beginning. He let me know the truth about the process. I left feeling much better. But I didn’t actually convince myself to get it done until this year. And I cannot even begin to express how pleased I am with the results! Erik is a true artist with the utmost professionalism. He was patient, he worked with me until I was pleased with the hairline. And then he performed the procedure flawlessly. His office is pristine and almost Zen-like in its calming vibe. Are there other locations one can get this procedure done? Of course. But I have visited several of them and NONE compare with Erik at Ahead Ink. If you’re considering getting this procedure done, you will be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t visit Ahead Ink. You will not be disappointed!

My experience with Eric was amazing..At first I was skeptical about the procedure and the results but Eric put those thoughts to a rest . The price is great considering he is the only one that does the procedure.. I went to another Micropigmentation business and I had the only option to work with one of there new tech which I declined..why would I risk getting a life changing procedure done with someone farely new for a high price.. I researched Eric work and was convinced that his work is one of the best. I would recommend Eric to anyone..Also his facility has parking.. Thanks Again Eric

Erik is a great individual and I felt like I knew him for years almost as if we hung out back in the day with all stories we spoke about…lol…as far as our sessions he definitely made me feel comfortable and did an amazing job on my micropigmentation. I would recommend it to all people who are looking to get this procedure done and you can count on AHEAD INK to give you satisfaction and great results.

At first, my intentions were to only get SMP into my scar but after witnessing some of Erik’s work I decided to get the full head SMP. And I must say I absolutely LOVE the difference it has made – and only after 2 passes. I’ll be going for the 3rd pass in about a month. Erik’s skills are tremendous. He’s a professional and just all around good, easy going guy. He makes you feel at ease, he is meticulous and the results show. I strongly recommend Erik at Ahead Ink if you’re thinking about getting SMP done.

Echoing my brothers review below, Myself and my father travelled out with my brother for the procedure and i cannot recommend the procedure ,and Erik himself, highly enough.

I was the one who found Erik after doing some research online via various recommendations and hairloss forums and i could just see Eriks work, precision and care to attention stood out above everyone else i came across.

Everything from the location, procedure and actual result are top class, after seeing my brothers result and how realistic and effective it is its something i would definitely i wouldn’t hesitate to have done myself.

Erik is a great guy, friendly and makes you feel at ease, and if anyone is looking for a great way of aiding hair loss you simply have to check out his work (Ahead Ink)

Erik is incredible at what he does and will leave you happy with the results! After being hesitant for years I decided to go with Erik for the work and if anyone is reading this debating whether to go for it, go and go with Erik. Looking back my only wish is that I had gone ahead and booked years earlier instead of waiting so long! You will be comfortable with your decision and you won’t believe how much better you feel after putting your trust in Ahead Ink.

My experiences with Erik over the past year have been unforgettable. His work is phenomenal, along with having a rock-star personality.

I just wanted to review my experience at Ahead Ink, Eric is Amazing at what he does. I’ve been dealing with hair loss and hair transplants for over 20 years. And after 10 hair transplants I still wasn’t happy, my hair was still thin and hard too manage and my scars were horrible. When I came across Eric at Ahead Ink I was like Wow this might be the answer I am looking for to solve my problems. I booked my consultation with Eric, we came up with a plan that was good for me. Being that we were dealing with so much scarring from prior surgeries. After we got threw the second passing I was so happy and I loved my new buzzed look. 3 weeks later I had my final session and was so amazed how this changed my whole appearance. I no longer wear hats anymore and I am 100% more confident. And for the 1st time I don’t worry about being in crowded places anymore. It is unbelievable what this has done for me. After worrying about my hair for so many years, I wish I had found Eric years ago, but I am so happy I did. I don’t just consider him my SMP Artist, he is now my friend, he makes you feel comfortable and he is a genuine guy. I just want to Thank him so much for everything he has done for me. Now when I am getting ready to go out I don’t have to drive my wife crazy about my hair because I am so confident. So if anyone has any second thoughts about having SMP done by Eric DON’T It will change your life. Eric my wife and I want to Thank you so much for all you did. Anthony

I would definitely recommend for anyone considering SMP to do their research to help choose a credible technician. One of the reasons I went with AheadInk was due to the impermanence of tricopigmentation, as well as the good reviews online. Erik was awesome. His ability to set forth a welcoming and honest environment helped alleviate my apprehensions when deciding if I should commit to SMP. I am very happy with my experience and results!

If your trying to decide wether or not to have a SMP procedure performed by Erik Aheadink. Put your anxiety and fears to rest and just trust in his technique and his expertise. Erik is not only exceptional at his art he’s also an open, honest good person with sensitivity. (That’s hard to find these days) If there were a 6th star it would be applied to this review. Thanks again Erik don’t change a thing about your business as it’s very much appreciated by your customers. Just trust him!

I met with Erik for a consultation. After speaking with me and knowing what I was looking for, he did not recommend micropigmentation for me at this time. He was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. He took his time and gave me other options. He also recommended some doctors that may be helpful. He did not pressure me to work with him. He is a true professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for scalp micropigmentation as an option.

My whole experience with Ahead Ink was great. Erik is a top notch professional. He worked closely with me to determine what I was trying to accomplish and came up with the perfect plan. The procedure is almost pain less and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Anyone considering SMP should looks at the before and after photos to see what a talented artist can do. Thanks Erik, you are the best.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Ahead Ink. Erik is an artist of exceptional skill and a master of his craft. To say that I am pleased and satisfied with my result would be an understatement. It’s no wonder that Erik’s clients come from across the country and around the world for the unique service he provides.

Erik truly puts his clients above all else. He is patient and conscientious, and does everything possible to ensure comfort and satisfaction. He is extremely accommodating, and will completely rearrange his schedule if needed to make time for an anxious client. He almost never books more than one client a day to ensure that each client receives his full attention and never feels rushed.

Erik is completely forthcoming (so rare in business these days), and will give you his true and honest opinion, even if it means potentially losing a commission. His prices are extremely reasonable considering both the quality of his work and rarity of his service.

The procedure was a breeze for me. I was completely comfortable throughout, and felt little to no pain (I think I even came close to dozing off at one point). While I was expecting each procedure to take as much as 4 or 5 hours, it only took about half that because I didn’t need any breaks. However, Erik explained that my experience was somewhat unusual, and that I must have a high tolerance for pain.

In the end, I’m so glad I found Ahead Ink, and finally took the plunge and got SMP. The result is truly remarkable. I feel a level of confidence now that I haven’t felt for a long time. I cannot recommend Ahead Ink more highly.

Wow!!! Erik is the best in the business!!!! I am in law enforcement and when I tell you that I have researched all who perform this procedure throughout the east and west coast, I am not kidding. He studied and perfected his skill overseas and is truly the master at his craft. He is very personal, caring and interested in helping you restore your confidence. “If you are looking for outstanding skills and professionalism with a dedication to his craft, there is no other!!!” This man is changing lives, you will not be disappointed!!! Erik “Thank you!!!”

I did a lot of research when first hearing about SMP and was in limbo with who I wanted to get this done by. In the end I decided to get this procedure done by Erik and I’m glad I did! My experience with him has been awesome. He comes off as very personable, selfless, and not pushy at all. His quality of work speaks for itself and I’d recommend anyone that is on the fence to just hop off the fence and move forward with Erik. Rest assured that you are being taken cared of by someone that is a master at his craft & truly cares about his clients.

It looks like I have a full head of hair and it looks 100% natural, my whole family was impressed. I recommend Erik of Ahead Ink to anyone!

DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! By far one of the best decisions I’ve made thus far was coming to Erik for the SMP procedure. To start off, I was in contact with Erik for many months before finally making the decision to come in and go for it. Erik truly goes out of his way to explain every little detail necessary regarding the procedure and answers any questions you may have in mind along the way. Three things that I can EASILY highlight about Erick was his professionalism, knowledge, and transparency. You Immediately felt comfortable from the very moment you walked in to the moment you walked out. He makes it his goal to make sure you are heard throughout the entire process and tries his best to get you the exact look you desire. If the SMP procedure wasn’t the best option for you, he would whole heartedly tell you and provide with you other alternatives. After finishing the session he provides you with great information on aftercare products, the healing process overall, and what to expect in terms of results. Aside from all this, just his ability to hold an engaging and fruitful conversation during the 3 hour procedure was a breath of fresh air and very much appreciated. The man is just outstanding to be honest and I thank you Erick sincerely for assisting me with a personal issue that has troubled me for years. I will definitely be following up on procedures and touch ups in the future with Ahead Ink.

For a year I have tried multiple products, herbs, rogaine, and was getting nowhere. I found out about Ahead Ink through the internet trying to find something to help, other than a hair transplant (which I drastically wanted to avoid). I was very nervous and apprehensive about the procedure, but I set-up a consult with Erik, and I never looked back. Erik is not only professional, but very knowledgeable about the field. The man is not just looking to make a quick dollar, but actually sits with you and wants you to look and feel your best. I got my first 2 sessions done, and not only do I feel more confident, but I’m proud I got this done. Definitely one of the best decisions I ever made. I agree with the other reviews; if you’re thinking about getting this done, you will not regret it. One of the best decisions I ever made. The man is an artist! Thanks Erik!

Ahead Ink was referred to me while I was in another country! When you meet Erik, he’s the kind of person you feel like you’ve known for years. I live in California and flew across the country to have the procedure done even though there are other choices closer to me. Easy to access location with a clean and private work environment. When doing this kind of procedure, a client wants to make sure the provider understands their specific needs. Erik made me feel more confident and comfortable than any other doctor or provider I spoke to. There is nowhere else I would go to have this done. The work is excellent and the entire experience rated A+. Thank you very much.

Eric at Ahead Ink was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was easy to talk to and he helped me throughout the entire process. SMP is truly a life changing procedure, and Eric is one of the best artists in the business. My hairline came out absolutely perfect and I couldn’t be happier.

Thank you so much Eric!!

Was pretty apprehensive about getting the procedure done, but Erik answered all of my questions leading up to and during the appointment. During the procedure, Erik was really personable and accommodating to my poor tolerance for the pain. He also really had a great eye for making the final result look natural and seemed to be very honest with what would look best aesthetically.

Very satisfied with how it turned out and would recommend Erik and his services to anybody looking for alternatives to systems and transplants.

I truly have all of the confidence now to live my life happy and not worry about people staring at my balding head. 👍🏼👍🏼
