To be honest, I always dreamed of a tattoo and got my first tattoo at the age of 18, but not in a prominent place, because my relatives always kept saying “they won't take a job with a tattoo”. The tattoo decorates, emphasizes the character of a person, his beliefs and affections. A tattoo is something you see every day. Any images that fall into the area of your attention (or are not even noted in consciousness) settle in the subconscious and from there influence behavioral reactions. Now imagine: a pattern with a special meaning slowly appears on your skin, appears with painful sensations that last several days. It is likely that before getting a tattoo, you considered this drawing for a long time, thinking whether it is worth doing it and where exactly. This alone is enough to leave a serious imprint of the image and what is associated with it in the subconscious. Therefore, if you decide to get a tattoo, you need to be very responsible when choosing a pattern. The problem of soreness of the procedure itself can now be solved with the help of special ointments, which include lidocaine. Of course, one can argue about "forever", because theoretically tattoos are reduced using a laser. But in practice they are not always reduced. It all depends on the pigment used and the depth of the punctures. After one session, the tattoo will definitely not disappear completely, you will have to go through a whole course, and its cost will be much higher than the cost of a tattoo. We had a long discussion on this topic with my mentor. He is an opponent of any drawings or scars on the body, he believes that the skin should be clean. But in general, this is a personal matter for everyone. For some, this is an adornment, a way to emphasize individuality, because it is not only young people who affirm their "I" with the help of a tattoo. More and more often successful, successful people use it as a means of self-expression.
Speaking about the influence on the psyche, of course, one cannot exclude the factor of faith. If you believe that a tattoo will change something in your life, most likely it will happen. It is generally common for a person to believe in mystical forces that can help, protect and even radically change life. But I didn’t
give the tattoo any deep meaning, I just like the drawings on the body.
