    to have this tattoo!

    Its for mental health awareness. My husband has recently had this tattooed onto his hand as he struggles with not only his mental health but the ignorance that surrounds it. Im also going to have the tattoo once I get paid at the end of the month.

    Sounds a bit extreme having it tattooed onto your skin but those of you who have had mental health issues, cared for someone with mental health issues or encountered ignorance over mental health will know where I am coming from!
    I doubt anyone will go for this but thought I would put it out there!!!:thumbup:

    Interesting idea!

    I have a rose tattoo so wouldn't be scared of the pain as I know what it feels like but hubby would go mental!

    I quite like this idea. Would probably get it on my ankle or something, I don't like colour in my tattoos though so not sure how if feel about a green tat.

    Oh aye, that doesn't look half bad and it's for a good cause.

    I'm not sure if I'll get a tattoo but maybe I'll invest in a badge or something since I can get quite unstable at times.

    I'd wear it as a pin badge on my coat.

    Tattoo's have to be personal to me and mean something for life so it wouldn't be relevant in that respect. I completely support help for mental health sufferers though and good on you for getting the tattoo :D

    I agree. I wouldnt get a tattoo unless it meant something to me, and the green ribbon is abit generic.
    Would def wear it as a pin though, the advantage of that is that if its on your coat or jumper everyone can see it. Not everyone will see your tat now that winter is coming!:D

    I'd wear a badge or as a pendant on a necklace, never get a tattoo though.
