Montreal Mothers Wear Their Pride

Montreal Mothers Wear Their Pride

Mothers day is coming, but before their day of celebration, some of Montreal's expectant mothers are showing off their city-pride, right on their bellies.

You, or any soon-to-be mother, can do the same, and paint a mural on your belly with the help of makeup artist Areli Perea of LoKa Make-up.

A professional makeup artist, Perea does work on movies (like the new X-Men!), music videos, weddings, and, her claim to fame, pregnant bellies.

Perea tailors the painting to the expectant mother, creating a belly-mural of whatever the mother may want, like a baby shower theme. Photo shoots are normally done to give mothers a lasting image of their original work of body art.

See what Perea can do, and how these Montreal mothers are literally wearing their Montreal pride through the photos below.
