I'm surprised no one has commented. I have one tattoo on my shoulder area. It's extremely special to me. It's a rose (for strength) that is pink (for my grandma who passed away from what started as breast cancer) with a teal ribbon around the stem (for surviving sexual assault and rape) and a semi colon at the bottom at the rose stem (for sucide awareness) I'm not sure how or if I can post a picture. I thought about the tattoo for years and looked for an artist for about a year. For me it was closure on alot of things and is reminder I can do this. I personally wouldn't go get a generic tattoo. This will most likely be the only one I ever get because I don't see anything else meaning enough to me to get it permanently put on my body.
From the weird to the wise; from instructional to informative, here is where Dr Vance lays it all out.
