new year new tattoo

3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine (Dopamine)

Well-known to anyone studying human biology, medicine, neuroscience or drug-addiction, dopamine is one of the chemicals that facilitates reward-motivated behavior, and plays a key role in feelings of determination and perseverance, as well as a host of vital functions besides.

Bumping this up the queue by double request, so here’s to a wonderful new year for all of you. Be awesome to yourselves and each other. <3

For Lavanya and @chilly131313

it rained a lot that summer, when johnny worked part time bussing tables at the diner and callie tattooed flowers on everybody’s necks. we bruised easy and loved hard and both hurt more than they should’ve. johnny said we were gods and i said i wouldn’t take it so far, said maybe we’re just pretty damn great at pretending. callie said stop it but i didn’t stop it, just kept tearing down the almost temples. the flowers on our necks are going to fade and we’re going to go with them. i’m sorry johnny, some things just weren’t meant to be holy.
