Tattoos are a form of body art that is appreciated by millions throughout the world.
I don’t know about you, but my pain threshold is very limited; aka next to nothing. However, I cannot help but liking tattoos since most of the time you do not wear a tattoo for fashion reasons only.
Tattoos, in tribes, were used long ago on tribe members to denote their rank in the tribe. Nowadays, tattoos are used by anyone who can afford one and who doesn’t fear of running away screaming at the sight of the tattoo needle, unlike me; your little Miss Sunshine.
Tattoos are used most of the time to represent something; I emphasize on most of the time since the other half of the time; it can be induced by drunken stupor; I am totally thinking about movies, right now.
However, tattoos like Angelina Jolie’s ones can represent dates that represent something for you; people that matter to you; quotes that you feel connected to or simply you had no idea what you wanted and you chose one from the catalogue.
Now if you are afraid of pain; there exist alternative tattoo methods that are unlike the laser or needle tattoos temporary. You can find your happiness with ballpoint pen tattoos or henna tattoos; those tattoos of course will fade with water and time unlike the permanent tattoos which can only be removed by laser, most of the time and then be prepared to suffer.
Tattoos are an important step in someone’s life; really don’t go follow a trend “just because it’s cool”, think what you want to show, how it is part of you and also of the pain behind removal; if then you are okay with it, you are good to go.
