Body Adornment by Arikah Peacock Owner of Decatur Body Art and Ees'aBella BellyDance Get your bling on!

<p>This girl is an amazing artist. She has had a talent for a lifetime that went unrecognizable. She deserves respect for her work. I’m really proud of her achievements. She has a huge heart. Getting tattoos are supposed to be meaningful and heartfelt like this Mother’s name for her son’s right arm. She put love in crafting this just how he wants it. That’s what we do. :)<br/>
