The semicolon project was created by Amy Bleuel- a woman in her 30's who struggled with suicide herself, and ultimately was taken by the illness in 2017. She began the semicolon project as a reminder to all people suffering from suicidal thoughts to continue their story, even when it feels like you want it to end. Bleuel picked the semicolon because it's what authors would use when they wanted to end a sentence, but didn't.
These tattoos often provide a sense of comfort and healing for those who suffer from suicidal thoughts, or those who love someone who suffers from these urges. In honor of Amy's memory, here are 15 unique semicolon tattoos to help keep you fighting.
