"Many people dont realize the psychological affect of being left with marks on your body can do. My personal marks were covered back in 2016 and it was not a good experience for me, and I wanted to change that and provide this service to survivors and have it be a positive and uplifting experience all the way around from the moment they fill out the application through the healing process of the removal or cover.

“I knew when God laid this on my heart back in the spring that it was the direction I wanted to take in helping assist them," Lamb said. "I stay connected with each survivor long after their marks have been covered. My heart is to see survivors continue to thrive and make strides in their recovery. We are very thankful for every artist and removal specialist that has partnered with ARI in making an impact in survivor’s lives in their journey.”

ARI has partnered with 20 trusted tattoo artists in six Southeastern states, such as Jesse Rollins of Covington, owner of Iron Clad Ink Tattoo. Rollins is a full-time firefighter with the Covington Fire Department. He has been a tattoo artist for about nine and a half years, and opened his own business about four years ago after seeing what one side of the tattoo industry is like.
