If You See This Tattoo On Someone, This Is What It Really Means…

As surprising as it may sound, the latest tattoo trend has nothing to do with a celebrity, or a famous image, or quote: It's simply a punctuation mark.

Semicolon tattoos are all the rage right now, and it's not just about making some kind of mysterious statement that only the cool kids know about. The semicolon tattoos come with a message: there's hope for people who are struggling with their mental health.

The tattoo trend was first initiated by Project Semicolon and encourages people to draw or tattoo semicolons onto their wrists. The organization's website says this is because the semicolon is used when an author "could've chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to."

It's a powerful statement, and makes a surprisingly awesome tattoo. Check them out below.
