Spring. Taisho Era Japan, 1920. There is a small percentage of the population that is born with mysterious, magical tattoos. When these people find each other, an inexplicable feeling runs down their spine and they somehow know the other person is just like them—especially if the tattoos have a pre-determined affinity to each other.
That is exactly how Kageyama, the young noble, and Hinata, the blacksmith’s son, met.
Well, I held up my end of the bargain! During day two of the Revelmode charity livestream, I pledged my donation and promised I would get a tattoo in honor of one of the members if they reached their $100,000 goal. They did! With the help of Revelmode, YouTube, the Gates Foundation, and ALL OF YOU GUYS we raised over 1.3 MILLION dollars for charity to help in the fight against AIDS.
I put a lot of thought into this, and I would’ve gotten a Revelmode tattoo in general to celebrate such a monumental feat, but seeing as how this is permanent, I decided to get a tattoo in honor of the person who has shaped my life the most. So, this tattoo is in honor of @therealjacksepticeye.
I decided to get Jack’s signature as my tattoo, in honor of not just Jack himself, but the community that he helped create. The “J” is a representation of Jack and everything he’s done for me, and Sam is a representation of this amazing community that I am so thankful to have been a part of for over two years. I put the tattoo on my thumb as a symbol of positivity. Overall, this tattoo will live on as a symbol of hard work, commitment, dedication, community, and self-worth.
I also wanted to mention that, I know my getting a tattoo has gotten a bit of traction in the last few weeks here on Tumblr. I know I made this statement in the spirit of Cringemas and it was a fun time and everything, but please remember that a tattoo is a near permanent decision. This is not something I decided to do on a whim. This was something I had thought about for well over a year and the stream sort of pushed me over the edge. (I’ve also have four other tattoos, so I’m well versed) So bear in mind, I don’t want anyone making any rash decisions on getting their own tattoo. If you want to get a JSE tattoo, more power to you! But please make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons and that you are very confident in doing so.
Huge thanks to Revelmode for supporting such an important cause, and to Jack for, well, everything.
