Tattoos are so commonplace nowadays it’s hard to spot anything new or unique.

Usually it’s a generic style or design that you’ve seen a thousand times before and so many people tend to go overboard with full sleeves that it can become more of a mess than a display of intricate skin art. Bekah Miles decided on a tattoo, but she wanted something truly different. And something that had actual meaning. Not generic symbolism, but true meaning based on actual experience. It was her suffering from depression that inspired her ink. When someone would ask how she was, she would respond, “I’m fine.” Of course at the time she wasn’t.

She knew a lot of other people were “not fine” either and she wanted to ink something that spoke about what she and others felt. On one side her tattoo it reads “I’m Fine.” But if you look at it from a different side it actually reads “Save Me.” Very clever and something that symbolically speaks about the double life that so many who suffer from depression end up leading. Great tattoo with a powerful message to it.
