Semicolon Temporary Tattoo
What Does a Semicolon Tattoo Stand For?
Wondering what is the meaning behind a semicolon? A symbol popularized by Amy Bleuel after battling depression, addiction, and difficult personal circumstances, the semicolon tattoo designs stand for survival and life stories that never end.
The semicolon punctuation mark is a popular representation, with a lot of meaning behind it. Around the world, many people are getting semicolon tattoos to raise awareness, and as an expression of solidarity against mental health issues, and the difficult phases many of us might go through.
Often misunderstood, or perceived just as a punctuation mark used at the end of a sentence, a semicolon tattoo has a lot more meaning than many people might imagine. Although their creation is deeply rooted in the mental health awareness, semicolon tattoos can be also made for honoring a cause or person, or a symbol of the connection between two phases in someone’s life. In other words, the real meaning behind a semicolon is that although something might seem like it is over, there’s still more to come. The story isn't over yet!
Why Get a Semicolon Tattoo?
The semicolon temporary tattoo can be made by anyone wishing to have a meaningful design on their body. First and foremost, it is a strong manifesto for those committed to leave behind all the traumas and hardships they’ve been battling with, and change their stories for the better. Getting a semicolon temporary tattoo can also be a strong message from survivors wishing to share their struggles and inspire others going through depression and suicidal thoughts, by showing them that they are not alone. They can be used by those who have lost someone to mental illness and wish to commemorate their memory, or by people who have someone close to them going through difficult times as a sign of support.

HOW LONG DO TEMPORARY TATTOOS LAST ON SKIN?
Our temporary tattoos last 3-5 days, depending on the size and placement of the tattoo. For the best application, be sure your skin is dry and free of oil, lotion and makeup. Choose a smooth, hair-free area that doesn’t crease or stretch when you move. Once applied, our tattoos are waterproof, so they won’t come off in the shower or pool.
HOW TO APPLY A TEMPORARY TATTOO?
Our temporary tattoos are fast and easy to apply; and all you need is water and a wet cloth. Your skin should be clean, dry, and free of lotion, oils, and makeup. First, remove the clear, protective top sheet. Then, press the tattoo firmly onto your skin with the design facing down. Hold a wet cloth against the back of the tattoo, press down and make sure to wet the paper thoroughly. Wait 30 seconds and slowly peel off the paper backing. Gently rinse the image with water for the best result and allow the tattoo to dry before touching or covering with clothing. Every TemporaryTattoos.com tattoo has application instructions printed on the back as well.
