tattoo ideas for overcoming addiction
Like this post? Yes | No    

I know i've seen some people that got a tattoo after getting out of rehab for drug addiction or overcoming something that was life changing so to speak. I can't remember any of them lol. I finally beat my alcohol addiction, cold turkey, im 4th months in and i don't want to drink ever again. Anyways...i have no ideas and do not want a pic of a bottle or the word alcohol, drink, drunk...you know not refer to it... any idea you have might give me ideas.. ?

no bigger than the palm of someones hand btw...

Pick something that has a lot of meaning to you, and will make you proud every time you see it.

What are some of the reasons you quit, could you incorporate them into a tattoo?

sometimes people do things like add something new for every year they've been sober - even just a tally where you add one mark every year or something like that.

is there someone in your life who was invaluable in helping you beat your addiction (either because you wanted to clean up for them, or because they provided support)? you could get their name somewhere.

Well i quit because i felt ever year i lived i put 5 on my body. I could see my health in many areas looking really bad. Looking back when i was in my worst shape from drinking i feel like i was truly poisoned.

I've though about a small picture turning into words or the other way around.

Nothing has clicked yet.

First, congratulations...VERY well done exorcising that poisonous demon from your system.

I suggest the Japanese symbol for victory...

I might end up doing something like this once my first year hits. Who knows.

You could consider a phoenix.
The bird dies engulfed in flames before another rises from these.

Go old school with a pair of dice, both on 6.

I do like the phoenix idea though.
