    I had a man falling in and out a chamber on my forearm, it represents how I felt like when I was 16, first attempted to suicide. As I much as I want to agree that a tattoo shouldn't carry a lot of meaning, it means a lot to me and it reminds me that you are either falling in or out, you are never still and it's okay. So I get you Julien, keep being strong.

    My best friend killed herself too. I had to call her dad to check on her. I miss her so much everyday and I have no idea how to feel okay, it’s been a year and yet it still hurts just like it did on the day it happened.

    As soon as he cut back to the video where he told everyone/said Brandon, I said to myself I’d cry. And I did. Just a little!!! As someone who is in the thought process of getting a tattoo, I find this... incredibly empowering. We love you, Julien. And thank you for letting us in a little bit more on the quiet corners of your life. 💜

    I’m sorry about your friend. There isn’t much to say to it other than acknowledge that it is hard and friendship is beautiful and I’m sorry you lost your friend this young this soon this sad. It’s been a while, and this comment is not but of a pick me up. So sorry for that too I guess.

    I'm crying a lot, that's such a meaningful tattoo. It's so sad, but at the same time remembering the great times you had with someone is so important, and healing. Remembering them. There's no 7/11s in my country and I'm late to this, but your VLOGs always touch me, and this one exceptionally so.
