If the difference is something positive, then \"enduring\" would be a good choice; however, if it is negative, \"endless\" would be a good choice. By choosing \"permanent\" or another synonym that is neutral in connotations, no commitment is being made.

Whether or not there is a causal link for an \"indelible mark\" to be left is impossible to tell with this limited context.
