: Psico Design ep. 25 : TEARS

TEARS, the hidden meaning in a tattoo 


in this short article of the section “PSICO DESIGN – the psychology of the drawings” we address the meaning and symbolism of the TEARS from a mythical or primordial point of view, to apply it in the portrayal of the tattoo


Anyway, we speak of fairytales that make us dream, there’s no time for science here


The prefrontal cortex has no ground here, we move within the emotions of the limbic brain or the instinct of the reptilian brain 


A TEAR obviously speaks of sadness, but not only…


they tell us about a mood that we don’t like and we would like to change and placing a teardrop in a tattoo shows your awareness to the fact that there can be things in life that we don’t like   


a tear can be the first step of a change and since it’s something visible, the tear is already in itself a turning point, the need to show an internal motion 


it is the evidence of a turmoil state and whether we like it or not we must be aware of it


teardrops are telling us that we can no longer look the other way, we can no longer pretend that we don’t mind


we must react, now

or tears will continue to cloud our eyes and then it will be impossible to move on 


tears are the point of no return


a tear itself is a defense that our body uses to protect our eye or to nourish it and as it is for our soul, the tear is an act of defense 


they are begging us to become aware of something that is wrong and to act accordingly


as the rain, tears make us sad and gray, but it’s also nourishment for nature


it’s fuel for change 


with love,
