Last weekend, the Wear Your Label team got semicolon tattoos in support of Project Semicolon, and as a fundraiser for CHIMO Helpline. The semicolon represents a story that could have ended, but didn't; you are the author, and the story is your life. It's a small reminder to anyone who's struggled with mental illness, self-harm, or suicidal thoughts that "your story isn't over". It's also a subtle symbol to the world that you support mental health awareness, and that you "get it". The concept has gained worldwide momentum in the mental health community over the past couple years.
