6 Advantages of Getting a Tattoo
The idea behind getting a tattoo is that your body is like a plain, white canvas and you can paint it in whichever shade you want. It holds a mirror to your personality, desires, deep-seated emotions and is a healthy of portrayal of your longings. Here are 6 advantages of getting a tattoo.
1. It gives a feeling of stability
A lot of things in life are not permanent. There are so many times you hoped that you could keep it intact and preserve it for life but it only slips away. Having a tattoo on your body during a rough phase in life can help you achieve permanence and stability.
2. It is a defense mechanism against losing control of your body
A lot of people get tattoos during their phase of rapid weight gain or when they are extremely ill. They feel that they don’t have any control over something that essentially belongs to them; their body. Getting a tattoo makes them realize that they have a control on their body.
3. It helps to define your personality
What you get done on your body-whether it’s a saying, a constructed work of art or symbol, it is what represents you. People will look at you and identify the image in correlation with your personality. It is a visual representation of your identity.
