As a general rule, human beings tend to avoid pain and seek pleasure. Tattooing is well known for being a bit painful. Conquering this fear can be exhilarating and can instantly lead to a single wanting an increasing number of tattoos once they understand they can handle the sensation. This can, however, get a little out of hand. Tattoos are a form of art and, like any form of art, too much of a great thing can ruin the effect. An individual should always be sensible and thoughtful about their conclusions concerning body modification.Tattoos say something about the bearer. Too many bad tattoos are inclined to say the bearer either has some private issues or that they don’t put enough time in their choices, neither of which carries a particularly desired consequence. Those individuals who are heavily-tattooed but who have excellent work did not accomplish their look by impulsive decisions or as a consequence of being hooked on getting a growing number of ink: They believed about every tattoo and only got the job done after decided that the tattoo was exactly what they wanted. Ensure that one’s wisdom is always in the driver’s seat where selecting a tattoo is worried.
There’s an endorphin rush associated with tattooing. This, in and of itself, can be very addictive and is similar to “runner’s high” Make certain that any tattoo really means something and it’s an honest expression of one’s self. Getting a tattoo simply to have a tattoo defeats the whole point. For thousands of years, human beings have modified their bodies for a variety of reasons. Shallow motives which stem from an addiction to the process really do nothing to advance the art and won’t serve one well in the long run. An individual should never have to regret a tattoo.But the subject of tattoo “addiction,” indeed, the very use of the word itself is a cause for a very different discussion. What really is dependence and is the desire for more tattoos or tattooing something that would fit into that mold? Well, there are basically two situations we might think about: the experience of being tattooed which is a manageable pain, and the sensation of having them that 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 receiver actually learns to get an endorphin high, a hurry, while under the needle (sound familiar?) And that that feeling is what is craved. I don’t understand. I haven’t spoken with anyone who has said they actually “crave” the process, but of course that does not mean that such people don’t exist. But from my experience I’d tend to say that this notion is untrue and is likely put forth by people who may have issues with tattoos or people who have them.I think the major argument for “dependence” is that the men and women who have them tend to want more after their first. I hope so, because common sense will tell you that enjoying something does not, in and of itself, make it an addiction. Have you ever gone to more than 1 concert? Hmmm. You must be a concert enthusiast. Do you have more than 1 car, one motorcycle?? Hmmm. More addictions. You see what I am getting at.
Although it is certainly likely that for some people, the practice of being tattooed is an addiction, and for others the obtaining of more and more body art is also an addiction, Pure numbers will certainly confirm that this is true although I don’t have any data to back this up. It would not be difficult to accept this.But for the majority of us, I’d say that we are doing what we love because that is what gives us pleasure and enjoyment. It doesn’t cause any harm to others in any way, 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 is another story.
