Have been planning to get this tattoo since my freshman year of high school. Aside from being my favorite punctuation mark to exist, it has such a beautiful meaning. A semicolon is a symbol dedicated to those who have survived suicide attempts, thoughts, and/or have lived to see friends and family struggle with the idea of living. "A semi colon is used when a sentence could have ended, but it didn't." A suicide survivor's life could have ended, but it didn't.

Definitely want. The semicolon represents when a sentence could have ended, but didn't... So thankful that this sentence did not end.

The semicolon is used when a sentence could have ended, but didn’t” If you have ever self harmed, been depressed, or attempted suicide, you might want to be part of The Semicolon Movement. It helps serve a a reminder that your sentence doesn’t have to end, and you don’t have to end it.

If there ever was a tattoo turned into my first tattoo. I chose a semicolon because when an author wants to continue a sentence with something better he uses a semicolon instead of a period. God is the author of my life and my semicolon reminds me there is good to come. #tattoo #semicolon

Punctuation personalities...just a fun poster. Maybe it could help as a memory trick when teaching students to remember the functions of each punctuation mark?
