Head Full of Pills T-Shirt

The Head Full of Pills design is a comment on our ever-increasing dependence on prescription drugs. It seems like there’s a pill for everything and everyone is taking them. Multiple pills are regularly prescribed, some to alleviate the problem, others to combat the side effects of the drugs. Often with little regard given to the side effects or the original cause of the ailment, because the pills will make it all better, and the dugs companies even richer. The decoration also references sugar skulls, as often used in Day of the Dead and All Souls’ Day traditions, in which the dead are remembered. Also in tattoo culture, tears under the eyes often represents a murder and cobwebs symbolise a lengthy prison sentence, two concepts that add that extra level of detail to the T-shirt design.
