I’m a graphic designer, and during my first year of art school I fell in love with the interabang; the extinct punctuation mark that combined the qustion mark and the exclamation point for moments like “she said what?!?” and so on. I decided that if my life were a symbol that would be it… surprised proclamation. It sort of became the icon for my life, and even became the name and logo of the design company I started after school. Finally this year on my 25th birthday I took the plunge and got it as my first tattoo. This mark means so much to me, and I’m so happy with it!
2010 was an incredulous year. I ran a marathon. I bought a house. I got a great new job. I got my first tattoo. I started writing an awesome novel that I hope everyone will hear about one day. Every time something great happened the interrobang just seemed like a better and better choice for a first tattoo. Plus most people who know me wouldn’t think I would get a tattoo ever, even more the reason to get one that encapsulated, “!?”
