Done by Chris Norton at Holdfast Tattoo in Port Orange, Florida
I’ve been struggling with self harm for years. In a step towards recovery, I got my father’s signature tattooed on the top wrist of my right hand; the hand I would cut with. My mother and I always sign our cards to each other with “xxoo”- so I got her script tattooed on the inside of my left wrist; the arm I would cut.
I think as long as they’re there, I won’t be able to cut again. It’s been ten years. I feel free.
