“It will be a new beginning. I’ll no longer have to look at this tattoo that someone picked out and forced on me.”

I felt God in that tattoo shop. I cant put into words how this cover made me feel. I no longer have to be worried about people noticing a gang branding on my body but have something that depicts hope and freedom. Thank you!

“I feel free from where I was marked as someone’s property. I no longer have to think about it everyday. I can finally wear my hair up! I no longer have to explain to people or make up something about what it was. As I continue through the healing process -this is one more thing I no longer have to feel shame or guilt with. I just cant say thank you enough. Its changed my life in many ways and how I look at myself. I really cant explain it any more than that.”- T
