Don’t Make a Girl a Promise: A Symbolic, and Amazing, Halo Tattoo
August 30, 2010 28 Comments
I have long held the belief that sometimes a game is more than just a game. Occasionally, hidden amongst the smallest of pixels, is the power to change our lives. Halo is that game to me, and it’s also that game to Jenny. When she found herself going through the trials and tribulations of an unexpected divorce, she popped Halo 3 into her disc tray, hoping to find a mindless distraction. What she discovered instead was a stress reliever, an outlet for meeting like-minded people, and, above all else, something to keep her sane through an extremely difficult time. Because of the impact it made on her life, she decided to give Master Chief’s helmet a permanent place on her body. Nestled upon a flower and a slew of brightly colored leaves, Jenny’s Halo tattoo serves as her own “personal symbol for life after divorce.” Normally, at this point, I would be insanely jealous, but in this case I think I’ll go ahead and share. There is, after all, more than enough of Master Chief to go around. You can trust me on that!
