    I have just gotten my first tattoo.

    It is not really acceptable in my country, esp to the older generation. But I want this tattoo, I hope it will mark an end for my depression.

    I can get tattoos that have no meaning.

    Some people find this crazy, I find that I LOVE art in general and would never be opposed to being a canvas to any artist who'd like to paint a beautiful and/or interesting piece on my skin.
