Makes you stronger!
This is another time I wish I had more background information but the sender did include this..
“This is my first tattoo. It’s a Nietzsche quote (and my back surgery scar).. One kind of caused the other.“
This is purely a guess but I’m assuming they knew in advance that they would need to be operated upon and the area that was going to be, hence the tattoo and the comment above. Either way, I hope you’re doing ok!
