I was a little nervous because I got my last tattoo about 16 years ago, so I was scared of the pain, but I pushed through it with the help of my girls. My tattoo is the 1st one below. I wanted to get this Arthur Ashe quote because it empowers me, its my mojo, and I wanted it to be somewhere I can see it as a constant reminder. I have anxiety issues, and at times very overwhelmed so having this reminder is a huge help for me. In addition I got a semicolon butterfly. The butterfly represents transformation, freedom, grace, and growth, and the semicolon represents Project Semicolon born from a 2013 social media movement. The movement is dedicated to presenting hope and love to those who struggle with depression, suicide, addiction and self-injury. It encourages love, and inspiration. The actual semicolon symbol is used when a writer could've chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The writer is you and the sentence is your life; chose not to end it...Today people all over the world are tattooing this mark as a reminder of their struggles, victories and survival, and I want to do just that. Getting this tattoo is absolutely the best tattoo for me, because I know that God has so much in store for my present and future.
