Selena Gomez - along with Netflix's 13 Reasons Why cast members, Alisha Boe and Tommy Dorfman - beamed her way out of a tattoo shop in Hollywood yesterday (April 9). They each got matching semicolon tattoos in honor of the show.
"Semi-colon tattoos are not just a passing trend. Instead, they have huge meaning to those that have them and represent an important message. The tattoos are inspired by Project Semicolon, an organisation dedicated to supporting people dealing with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues."

I have received so much love and support from all of you who are watching 13 Reasons Why. Today- Tommy, Selena and I got tattoos of a semicolon. Project semicolon is a movement dedicated to presenting hope for those suffering from depression, thoughts of suicide, addiction, and self-injury. Those of you watching 13 Reasons Why and identify with Hannah Baker, please check out Beyond The Reasons on netflix, or check out the link in my bio. Rest In Peace Amy Bluel, who started this movement. Love you all❤❤ (thx @ktal77 and @joymaryro for the inspo😉)
Today was a magical day. Another day to be grateful to be alive. Alisha, Selena, and I went together to get ; tattoos. 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.
Wish the rest of the crew was with us today. Overwhelmed with the response and love @13reasonswhy is receiving. Thank you to each beautiful person who has watched and talked about the message of our show.
Also, here is a bonus outtake from a photoshoot Selena did in 2016 with Love Magazine (her fans are loving it);
