Andrew O'Brien, an Army veteran of the Iraq War, photographed at his home in Austin, Texas, April 2, 2013, has a tattoo on his back as a permanent reminder of the day in 2010 when he attempted suicide. "It's part of my past, so I put it on my back to keep it behind me," he said. (Jay Janner/Austin American-Statesman/MCT)
