Ever since I was eleven years old I had listened to MCR. I grew up with an extremely mentally and physically abusive alcoholic father. I lived in fear of him most of my child hood, and when I was introduced to My Chemical Romance I felt like there music really touched the emotions and helped me stay calm when things were bad at home. Any time my father would come home drunk and become violent I would put in my headphones and play 3 cheers and bullets, it really helped. Honestly, this music helped me avoid self harm and basically kept me sane. Now that I’m getting older, my parents have divorced and my life has changed drastically for the better. The reason for choosing my tattoos from mcr’s newest album Danger Days was because I knew Gerard Way’s life had changed so much in such a positive way, which reflected his lyrics leaving a much more happy vibe in the album..and I just felt like I could totally relate to that. The future is bulletproof, the aftermath is secondary. Always remember that the past is the past, and the future is yours. I can’t wait to finish this half sleeve dedicated to this album..It’s something I’ll always hold close to my heart.
