Kylie Minogue - Framed
Drawing from a photo in the newspaper from about year 2000
Kylie Minogue - Old Pencil Drawing
An old one of Kylie, I haven’t scanned and processed this one digitally, because I would have to take it out of the frame.
Anxiety and Depression are like a black hole. Once you cross the event horizon, you are pulled spiraling downwards. It is difficult to escape, but unlike a black hole it is not impossible.

I chose this version of the Star Trek Logo for my first tattoo because this is what it represents to me:

First Tattoo - Boldly Go! by elmy001

The Black Circle represents the black hole of anxiety & depression

The shield emblem represents a barrier of courage, determination, integrity, strength (among many other positive characteristics that the logo represents, but these are the ones I am focusing on by this particular rendition)
The shield acts as a barrier to protect from entering and being pulled into the black hole. It sits defiantly above the singularity. The qualities of courage, strength, determination are that shield, but they also can help lift you from the black hole (should you have already crossed the event horizon) and turn things around into positiveness direction of growth.

A reminder to me to never quit. Rest if you must, but never quit, and to face everyday and every challenge with boldness and courage. The only way to deal with fear and anxiety is "through". Anxiety is an illusion, the reality is never as bad, and 90percent of that which we worry about doesn't happen. It is all what if!

Boldy Go! and tell the Chimp of Doubt inside your head (The Chimp Paradox by Prof Steve Peters) to get lost!
