In recent years, tattoos have become increasingly popular and more and more people have decided to get all sorts of designs drawn onto their skin.

What it means if someone has a tattoo with a semicolon

Although it is indeed a very simple design, it carries an extremely powerful message and can reveal something important about the person wearing it.

A semicolon tattoo is a symbol for the fight against mental illness and suicide. Those who choose to get one either want to have a “talisman” that gives them strength to fight these problems, or they want to show that they support the cause and want to bring hope and love to those who are struggling with depression, suicide, addictions of any kind and other problems.

Why was this symbol chosen? The semicolon symbolizes that the person in question had the opportunity to end their life and thus add the final “period”, but chose not to (comma), and to continue the fight and enjoy life instead, according to upworthy.com.

What was originally just a movement in which young people were encouraged to draw semicolons on their bodies and pose for pictures to spread the word about the cause has turned into a permanent tattoo for people around the world who felt they wanted to have one on their bodies.
