Dopamine tattoo. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter involved in pleasure, happiness, mood regulation, learning, and sleep. This tattoo serves as a reminder that I literally make my own happiness, and signifies my commitment to a career in neuroscience. It’s also a great reminder that although people come and go throughout life, family, friends, anyone, that it’s up to me to be happy with myself regardless.
It stands for "Everything happens for a reason". Being able to recognize that everything that happens is part of the plan for your life, that you can't control it, and that everything will work out is one of the most important parts of living a happy life. And sometimes ya just need a little reminder. :)
