As a general rule, human beings have a tendency to avoid pain and seek pleasure. Tattooing is well known for being somewhat painful. Conquering this fear can be exhilarating and can immediately result in a single wanting an increasing number of tattoos once they understand they can manage the sensation. This can, however, get a bit out of hand. Tattoos are a form of art and, like any type of art, too much of a great thing can ruin the effect. An individual should always be sensible and thoughtful about their decisions concerning body modification.Tattoos say something about the bearer. Too many bad tattoos are inclined to state the bearer either has some personal issues or that they don’t put enough time into their choices, neither of which carries a particularly desired implication. Those individuals who are heavily-tattooed but who have excellent work didn’t accomplish their look by impulsive decisions or as a result of being addicted to getting a growing number of ink: They believed about every tattoo and just got the job done after decided that the tattoo was exactly what they wanted. Make certain that one’s intellect is always in the driver’s seat where choosing a tattoo is worried.
There is an endorphin rush associated with tattooing. This, in and of itself, can be quite addictive and is similar to “Broward County Animal Trapping” Ensure that any tattoo really means something and it is an honest expression of one’s self. Getting a tattoo just to get a tattoo defeats the entire point. For thousands of years, human beings have modified their bodies for various reasons. Shallow reasons which stem from an addiction to the procedure really do nothing to advance the art and won’t serve one well in the long-term future. One should not have to regret a tattoo.But the subject of tattoo “dependence,” indeed, the very use of that word itself is a cause for a very different conversation. What really is addiction and is the desire for more tattooing or tattoos something that would fit in that mold? Well, there are essentially two situations we might consider: the experience of being tattooed which is a pain that is manageable, and the feeling of having them which would cater more to self adornment, although of a more permanent nature than most other forms.
The debate for addiction to the process of being tattooed is that the recipient actually learns to get an endorphin high, a rush, while beneath the needle (sound familiar?) And that feeling is what is craved. I don’t know. I have not spoken with anyone who has said they really “crave” the process, but of course that doesn’t mean that such individuals don’t exist. But from my experience I’d tend to say that this notion is untrue and is probably put forth by people who may have issues with tattoos or people who have them.I believe the major argument for “addiction” is that the people who have them are inclined to want more after their first. Again, from my experience it would seem that people who get tattoos like tattoos, and therefore are more likely to be tattooed … .more than formerly. I hope so, because common sense will tell you that enjoying something does not, in and of itself, make it an addiction. Have you gone to more than 1 concert? Hmmm. You should be a concert addict. Do you have more than one car, one motorcycle?? Hmmm. More addictions. You see what I’m getting at.
Even though it is certainly probable that for some individuals, the practice of being tattooed is an addiction, and for others the obtaining of a growing number of body art is also an addiction, Pure numbers will certainly confirm that this is true although I have no data to back this up. It would not be difficult to accept this.But for most of us, I would say that we are doing what we love because that is what gives us pleasure and enjoyment. It doesn’t cause any harm to other people at all, nor to us ourselves if we’re careful and do what we do responsibly and with care. Tattoo addiction, in the literal sense then, I see as a myth. But tattoo enjoyment … .well, that’s an other story.
