Drugs are illegal substances that alter one’s state of mind, mood, and even a person’s sensory perception. From earth-grown addictions such as cannabis (marijuana)opium (poppy) and psilocybin (mushrooms) modern chemistry has paved the way for the synthesis of new drugs such as LSD and ecstasy. Showing their true commitment to these addictive elements, many junkies opt to have drug tattoos all over their bodies. Perhaps the most common style is the leaf of the plant most people know as cannabis. It is the source of inspiration for the tattoos of the drug marijuana.
Another example of common drug tattoos is the poppy design. The seeds from this red flower have been the source of opium – perhaps one of the oldest drugs on the market. At first glance, it looks like a common flower tattoo. But if you know what it means, then you will know the symbolism behind the ink. Other tattoos of drugs that are commonly seen on people around the world include a bong, the literal depiction of the word “drugs” andthe chemical compound of the aforementioned drugs (for chemistry nerds).If you opt to have this tattoo, it doesn’t mean you’re a junkie. You can have it to show that you have overcome your addiction to drugs. After all, it serves the purpose of self-expression and identity.
