Mark of the Mighty: Wounded

Courtnee Cogdill

The second tattoo is from about two years ago.

I had been thinking for a while that I needed 3EB lyrics tattooed on me and I just couldn’t decide what.

“Wounded” was always close to my heart. Then my inspiration happened. I was cruising the Misfits page, and someone asked what we thought “wounded” meant. Crissy Reter, their former tour manager, that knows all the secrets commented.

She said, “He wrote it [wounded] for her to tell her, in his way, you don’t have to be a victim of the awful thing that happened to you. Sometimes, it can just be an awful thing in your past instead of defining you.” I read that and everything clicked. All the abuse and bullshit I’ve gone through is in the past and it doesn’t have to define me. I can walk with the wounded and wear my scars proudly without being a victim of my past.
