Message to Self
Photograph by Jodi Cobb

A fresh tattoo spells out Joaldo Souza's allegiance to a state of mind and body that humans just can't live without—love. No one knows exactly how to define it, though scientists are trying—identifying hormones associated with different stages of love, from starry-eyed infatuation to long-term attachment. As for Souza, visiting New York City for Gay Pride Day, he definitely knows what love feels like. "It just makes me really, really happy," says the Miami resident, caught up in the tumult of a new relationship. Why the tattoo? "To remind me to love myself first."
