I got this semicolon to celebrate the construction of written language. It’s placed on the back of my neck, separating mind and body—two independent (but closely related) “clauses.” Though realistically, one can’t survive without the other, figuratively, we often make decisions relying solely on logic (head), emotions (heart), or impulse (gut). But really, we function best when they all work together.

It is in 200-pt Times New Roman and was done by Chico at Stingray Tattoo in Allston, MA. It’s my fourth (nerdy) tattoo.
