Do I wear my heart on my sleeve?

People who wear their heart on their sleeve express their emotions freely and openly, for all to see. Example: "She is kind of player who never hides how she's feeling. One look at her and you know if she's winning or losing." Reply: "She wears her heart on her sleeve."

You can see how these people feel as easily as if they were "wearing" their "heart" on the "sleeve" of their shirt. Example: "Some people love him and some people hate him, but my brother always lets you know how he feels. He wears his heart on his sleeve."

People who wear their heart on their sleeve do not hold back their emotions, for good or for bad. It is clear how they feel in each moment. Example: "She's a shy person. She's never been one to wear her heart on her sleeve."

So which one am I?  Someone help me out with this one.  Do I wear my heart on my sleeve, or do I hide it.  I kind of think it's a little of both.  Which is why I'm planning on getting a heart tattooed on my upper arm.  On the one hand, it will be on my sleeve.  On the other, it will be hidden under my shirt.  If you look, you'll see it.  If you don't, you won't.  If you get to know me, really, you'll know how I feel.  If you don't, you won't. 

That has meaning to me.  I always said if I got a tattoo it would have to have meaning.  This jumped out at me as a good idea.
