Selena Gomez and the 13 Reasons Why Cast Semicolon Tattoos

Selena Gomez and the 13 Reasons Why Cast Get Matching Semicolon Tattoos

Back in 2013, a viral tattoo movement known as Project Semicolon popped up thanks to Amy Bleuel, who got the punctuation mark inked in honor of her father, whom she lost to suicide. Since then, thousands of people all over the world have gone on to get identical tattoos to represent the importance of suicide prevention and their own mental health struggles, because it symbolizes that "this is not the end, but a new beginning." 13 Reasons Why stars Tommy Dorfman and Alisha Boe were joined by the show's executive producer, Selena Gomez, in getting their own semicolon tattoos on Sunday, which were done as a tribute to the drama's deft handling of suicide, and Amy, who recently took her own life.

"Today was a magical day. Another day to be grateful to be alive. Alisha, Selena, and I went together to get ; tattoos," Tommy wrote on Instagram. "The ; symbol stands for an end of one thought and a beginning of another. Instead of a period, authors use the semicolon to continue a sentence. For us, it means a beginning of another chapter in life, in lieu of ending your life. I struggled with addiction and depression issues through high school and early college. I reached out and asked for help. At the time, I thought my life was over, I thought I'd never live past the age of 21. Today I'm grateful to be alive, in this new chapter of life in recovery, standing with my colleagues and friends, making art that helps other people. If you're struggling, if you feel suicidal, I urge you to click the link in my bio. Ask for help. Start a new chapter with the support of others. 🌧⛅️🌤☀️and RIP Amy Bleul, who started the semicolon movement."

The "Only You" singer, who has always been open about her struggle with addiction and depression, posted a few photos of their outing to her Instagram story, as well as a thank you "to each beautiful person who has watched and talked about the message of our show." The possibility of a second season of 13 Reasons Why is still up in the air, but it sure seems like the cast's friendship is the real deal.
