Pink, although it is linked to femininity and physical weakness, is in fact vibrates on a very powerful and efficacious calming frequency. Pink is the end product of mixing red and white together. Red by itself is the most stimulating colour of passion, power and intensity. White, on the other hand, is a calming-neutralising colour of purity, completeness and blank slate. The physical passion, aggression and dynamism is toned down by the neutral white, bringing out the tender, soft, loving and nurturing pink.
Pink is associated with unconditional love, romance, nurturance, compassion, kindness, softness and femininity. The nurturing effect of pink touches to the motherly nature of unconditional love. Remind us of our need of giving and receiving care and nurture. Depending on how much of red or white it has in it, some shades of pink can be rather stimulating, but all in all it has a very calming effect.
Some studies have confirmed that being exposed to large amounts of ink creates a calming effect on nerves and causes an illusion of physical weakness. In some prisons, cell walls are painted a certain shade of pink, which is called ‘Drunk Tank Pink’ in order to calm prisoners, detach them from their aggression and violent tendencies, breaking them down psychologically in order to make them feel physically weaker then normal. Although, long exposure to this colour, interestingly enough, creates a very opposite effect, making the inmates even more restless and drive them to the edge of insanity.
