How and When to Use the ⛓️ Chains Emoji

  • If you’re posting an empowering caption or even inspiring context of ‘breaking free’, ⛓️ could be your buddy. For example, “You can chain my body, but darling. You cannot chain my mind, even if you tried ⛓️”.
  • Speaking of chaining one’s body, ⛓️ is one of the apt emojis in contexts of bondage and restriction. Like, “The truth will set you free ⛓️” (see, not everything needs to be about sex :)).
  • You could also use ⛓️ while referring to something wild, untamed, and ferocious (not what you’re thinking, ugh). Like, “Geez. That was SO off the chain! ⛓️” or “If anything, I wish to always be off the chain ⛓️”.
  • Use ⛓️ to refer to a chain reaction or, in other words, a “chain of events”! – this could be your perfect gossip partner (if you’re into gossip, ofc). For instance, “The news went off to be a chain reaction instead of just a CHAIN ⛓️ How sucky is that??”.
  • Similar to the understanding of a ‘chain reaction’, ⛓️ could also signify multiplication; given the repetition of design and style – “Can you calm?? How is there no fun when the fun itself is being multiplied?? ⛓️”.
