When it comes to pills, virtually every girl out there has taken one at some point in their life. From medical reasons to purely pleasure inducing activities, pills are modern miracle in a tiny package.
Speaking of their usage, did you know that 1 in 10 Americans take an antidepressants these days? It may seem like a lot but these pills treat such a wide spectrum of mental issues from anxiety to depression, PTSD and beyond. For some women, SSRIs can be so life changing that a tattoo of these pills only makes sense. I’ve heard stories from countless women who have taken things like Zoloft, only to wonder why they had waited so long. To some, they are simply lifesavers.
Though, that’s not to say that everyone should take pills of course, but it’s a good explanation as to why to these tools can be so important. Can you imagine having to go through every single day of your life, panic attack after panic attack?
Imagine dealing with a gloom from depression that you can’t seem to shake off. Even things that once made you happy fail to make you crack a smile. And there’s nothing you can even do about it. If you’ve tried therapy, nutritional changes, exercise, and all the other traditional routes, then sometimes pills are the last resort. In other words, there’s nothing wrong with giving these tools a try when you’re up against a wall.
Beyond mental health, there are so many different pill varieties out there from birth control to pain, blood pressure, antibiotics, etc. Given the insane number of treatments, it makes sense as to why pill tattoos are getting more and more popular these days.
But let’s not forget the classic, instant superhero powers that come from ingesting a tiny pill or capsule. Who wouldn’t love to take a pill and gain more time in life, godly brainpower, super strength, etc.? While these pills are more or less fantasy and reserved for the movies, it still fun to dream about the possibilities.
Another meaning behind pill tattoos that some tend to forget is that of addiction. If you could vanish all of your worries, pain, anxiety, etc. while flooding your brain with dopamine, the feel good drug, what in the world would make you want to stop? For some breaking the habit or cycle of addiction can be a long, difficult process.
The struggle can be an incredibly significant part of a life which makes for the perfect tattoo. For some women, pill tattoos are a reminder of their success beating addiction, and for others, a reminder of the dangerous of restarting their past.
