Tattoos are a way for them to create their own identity, to make themselves look different from the cookie cutter people surrounding them, to make them feel a little more unique. Their tattoos raise their confidence. Their tattoos make them feel better about themselves. Their tattoos help them love themselves more
What are the benefits of having a tattoo?
Multiple tattoos were found to reduce cortisol levels, improving the immune system benefits of tattoos, but also helping with stress reduction. High levels of cortisol are associated with many of the physical and mental detriments of stress:
- Increased weight gain
- Inhibited memory & learning
- Elevated blood pressure
And that is just to name a few. The body produces cortisol in an attempt to reduce pain. But the associated effects aren’t always worth this benefit. Multiple tattoos result in the cortisol hormone response to be less active. That means less cortisol is produced, resulting in stress reduction
Tattoos provide confidence & self-esteem
Those with tattoos know the confidence associated with fresh ink. It’s exciting and you want to show it off – like an amplified version of the feeling you get after a really good haircut. But it turns out that the confidence boosting effects aren’t just for new ink.
A study of 2,395 college students found a correlation between tattoos and self-esteem. And the more tattoos, the bigger the confidence boost. Respondents with four or more tattoos had significantly higher self-esteem than those with less. This was especially among those who reported a history of depression.
The cause for this may be that a tattoo gives you a sense of control over the self. And allows you to reclaim something that has been lost or taken.
