I got very depressed a couple of years ago and had cut myself for a while. I always knew of the organization “To Write Love On Her Arms” that raises awareness of depression and self-harm, and I wrote “love” on my arm almost every day. Any time I’ve felt really down, it usually drifted back to me not feeling cared about. I never really feel good enough for people to truly care about me, even though I know there are people who do. I thought I would put a spin on writing “love” on my arm and add the “d” on the end to remind myself that I am indeed, loved. This is my first tattoo done by Matt at Hardline Tattoo in Monroe, WA. It’s a very chill environment, and he was very laid back about how much of a wimp I am. I had a good experience and it was quick and accurate. I am very pleased.
