The Reason for the Pride People Feel with Their Tattoos
For obvious reasons, being inked is not for everybody. Those who oppose it have as much taunts while real tattoo artist does not also favor allowing people to get reckless and ink their entire body with ‘tramp stamps’. There are many people who can’t decide whether or not to put a tattoo on their bodies but below is an explanation for why people get themselves tattooed, and why they are proud to do so.
For many, it is about closure or to seal to represent a gap that’s been left, either by the demise of a beloved and about continuing with life after that shocking experience. With this tattoo, the loved one is forever remembered and their former life is given reminder by this tattoo.
Some people deciding to have a closure of a sad experience by using a tattoo is just one reason for doing it. Since everything that is tattooed in their body has a sad story to it, they pride themselves with it. And they are willing to not only forget what happened plus the determination to continue on with bravery and tenacity enriches what’s been embedded on their skin that is hard to erase.
Radical art as opposed to the pitfalls of becoming co-opted by propaganda or commercialization is another way of expression. In a statement made by a Marxian playwright names Bertolt Brecht, he refers to tattooing as revolutionary art, and that “art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.” What this man believes is that to be a radical or revolutionary artist is to defy anything that is imposed in either form or content by any economic system, artist academy, or political status quo. Therefore some take it to the street by displaying their liberal adoption on politics and society in the form of rebellions graffiti on walls.
Another form of radical expression of feeling, character, or thought on canvas is abstract painting. A better way to own their radical thoughts it to embed it on their skin so that it is always with them wherever they go. The artist’s presence is in the tattoo unlike graffiti and paintings where an artist can be detached from it. Inking them in one’s skin, to many, is simply the epitome or the embodiment of a full-fledged radical artist and therefore wears them with pride.
Some people carry their tattoos with pride since they are able to express something with or without great value to them. The reason why some take pride is that for them it is like an act of heroism know that it would be there for good. Inking the name of a boyfriend in your younger years might not be taken positively by your fiance later in life.
