My wrist tattoos. “Let go” is on my left wrist, over my cutting scars. “Hold on” is on my right wrist because I’m right handed, so that is the hand that I use the most to interact with others. To me they are a reminder to heal and love myself so I can give some of that strength and love to others.
These are my hands. They say ‘tuff enuf’ because I’m tired of sitting down and taking the bullshit pushed on my as a POC, as a queer, as an anarchist. I’m tired of seeing my friends beaten down and murdered. I’m tough enough to fight back. These hands will be weapons against hate.
Black and Proud and Natural.
