I have wanted a tattoo for a really long time. I never could figure out what it should be, though. I either wanted an epic story, or a deep reason for what I wanted to put permanently on my skin.
I have found 2 tattoos that I really want. The first one is a semicolon. I need to find a unique way to get it done, but it is an awesome movement and statement about mental health. Google it: Project Semicolon.
My second is simply “Make it so.” I want it in a nifty font and I want it to be simple. Not only is it a nod to my favorite Starfleet captain, it also is a mantra that I am trying to live my life by. For so long I let my mental illnesses control me and now I am learning ways to control them. Do I want to be happy? Make it so.
Also, I wouldn’t mind getting an outline of Picard around it, eventually. I know, I am such a nerd. Another thing that I am coming to love about the world is Nerd Culture, but that is a whole different post.
Okay, your turn! What tattoos do you have? What tattoos do you want? What stories are behind them?
