Head Full of Pills Burgundy T-shirt


This is a one-off, premium burgundy T-shirt that was printed to test the colour. I will probably use this colour T-shirt again, as it works really well. But it's unlikely that I will be reprinting this design/colour combination any time soon. This means you can grab a one-of-a-kind T-shirt that no one else on the planet has. There's an 8Y8 logo on the front chest and a Head Full of Pills print on the back, all screen printed by hand in black.

The T-shirt printed on is climate neutral, made using certified organic cotton and renewable green energy sources such as wind and solar. Printed in permanent water-based ink to create the least environmental impact possible.

  • Climate neutral
  • 100% certified organic cotton
  • Screen printed by hand in Wales
  • Fair Wear–ethical trade and justice for workers

Head Full of Pills T-Shirt

With a litteral skull full of pills, the Head Full of Pills design is a comment on our ever increasing reliance on drugs to stay healthy. Often seen as an easy fix for any and all ailments, with rarely any regard given to the cause of the problem in the first place. Keep taking the pills, they’ll make everything better, and the drugs companies even richer.

The sugar skull decoration, as often used in the Day of the Dead and All Souls’ Day traditions, in which the dead are remembered, is also a fitting reference. Anyone familiar with tattoo history will also recognise the tears as representing murder and the cobweb standing for a long prison sentence, two concepts that fit perfectly with the pill-popping culture. Once you start taking a prescription there’s regularly more than one pill, one to fight the problem, another to fight the side-effects of the first pill. And so it goes on.
