The two most common (mental) health problems that people are facing currently are depression and anxiety. Despite the fact that they are commonly mentioned casually in our daily conversations, they are serious issues which have to be recognised by the individual, to start with.
Everyday we heard and read about people committing suicide and self-harm or dealing with failure, breakup, disappointment, rejection. Celebrities like Deepika Padukone and Selena Gomez are coming forward to spread the awareness and importance of talking about it by opening up about their own struggles.
There are many ways to deal with anxiety and depression. But if you ever need a reminder to stay positive, tattoos are one way to do it. Vikas Malani, the founder of BodyCanvas Tattoos says, “A tattoo is a symbol that can motivate you and say a thousand words by just looking at it. It is a constant reminder of hope, strength, serenity, freedom, perseverance to those who have struggled with depression, disorders, addiction, or self-harm. They are a way saying ‘your story isn’t over yet’.”
It is incredible how therapeutic a tattoo can be. So be proud and celebrate your life journey with some inspirational tattoos to help spread awareness about depression and other mental health issues.
