Thank you ARI for being the catapult of complete healing. Most people don’t understand the psychological affects brandings has on a victim. Its an emotional attachment that constantly reminds you of your bondage and hopelessness. No matter the distance you have traveled or the amount of healing you have accomplish. Today is the first day I can look in the mirror and spiritually exhale. This has truly been the happy ending to a horrific tale. God has a way of preparing the way and working out every detail concerning our healing. Thank you for meeting me at this point on the journey

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
