Nearly 3 months ago, A musical legend completed suicide. Chester Charles Bennington was the frontman for a wonderful band we all know as @linkinpark . I got this tattoo to honor him and the rest of the band's success since his joining in 1999. Their albums have touched the lives of so many people, including myself. The logo is the new Linkin Park logo the band released after Chester's passing. The semicolon is not only suicide awareness, but to say that whether Chester is here in the physical or not, he will always complete the band. Suicide is a horrible tragedy that takes the lives of many people, sometimes the signs are there, other times they are not. If you ever know of or see anyone who you think may be down in the dumps, or considering suicide, please, reach out to them. Let them know that they are loved and not alone. Be their listening ear, a person they can count on in their darkest of times, and make sure that you don't just slam them with saying they need to seek professional help. Many people who are troubled by a mental illness have reached out, and feel hopeless after doing so, and are afraid to reach out to more others. My heart goes out to Talinda Bennington and Chester's 6 children, the other members of Linkin Park, and ofcourse all the fans that fell in love with the band since day one. I urge you all to please reach out to those in need, you never know if you contacting a person will change or save their life.
Thank you to @tattoos_by_adam_oxley of @inkexpression_tattoo for the beautiful tribute piece.
