My new tattoos, and also my first tattoos. Located on my forearms. (Done by Roy Ramirez at The Darkside Tattoo.)

They are the chemical symbols for the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine plays in a role in regulation of behavior, motivation, reward, attention, learning and mood. Serotonin plays a role in regulation of mood, appetite, sleep, memory and learning.  Together they both directly influence happiness/sadness/depression/anxiety, which are all issues I have struggled with my entire life. These tattoos serves as reminders that my body literally can (and does) make my own happiness. It is also a reminder that under any circumstance I can also choose happiness over anxiety or depression, that I CAN concur it, and to remember how I have overcome so much in the past year.
