If you are getting your first tattoo or already have half your bodies covered with tattoos Seen you will discover some valuable information here. As a tattoo addict and someone who spends most of his waking hours picking out gun tattoos ideas, I want to share some of what I have learned in the past.
I have spent significant amounts of time amongst gun tattoos artists in gun tattoos studios around the globe and have encountered a multitude of different people coming at the office of the tattoo studio to permanently mark their bodies. Many times I have questioned why it is many people go under the gun to get inked.
Some people simply because of love them and think they look good or enhance their appearance, others to take part in a ‘tribe’ or group, while others to mark a significant event in their lives, for instance, a bereavement or to express love for another person. You could say that you have as many reasons for getting tattooed and there are human experiences. Due to the uniqueness of each person’s life journey, no two reasons are ever the same.
In these situations the person wanting a tattoo has probably put quite a lot of thought into the tattoo and perhaps the gun tattoo itself will have some sort of psychological meaning; for example when someone gets a portrait tattoo of a family member who has recently died that psychologically they need to keep close to them throughout their lives. Or maybe you have been jilted by a spurned lover and want a tattoo of a broken heart or caged bird to signify their loss.
Human beings have been modifying their bodies with ink and steel for many millennials. Many people see tattoos and body modification as a spiritual practice. Before the advent of modern pain management, the pain was seen as a natural part of life carrying a number of spiritual and social meanings. But as time rolled on we began to deny the very existence of anything beyond our physical bodies.
Because of this many people without tattoos cannot see past the image etched onto the person’s body to the deeper meaning or symbolism behind the tattoo. It can often cause numerous reactions in the ‘uninitiated’ from mild curiosity to extreme disturbance resulting in fear and mistrust of the people. Tattoos by their very nature cause a reaction especially on those who don’t have them.
This begs the question on why anyone should get a tattoo without considering the wider implications and deeper meaning behind the tattoo. A lot of people wander into a tattoo studio and have no clue why they need to get a tattoo other than seeing their favorite rap artist or basketball player and thinking it looked cool. So they waste the tattoo artist’s time by saying they want a Nike swoosh on their butt or a tattoo how big is a button on their back. Many gun tattoo artists will just put up and shut up because they see this as ‘bread and butter’ work.
The implications of this are two-fold. Firstly the person is left with a really ‘dumb’ tattoo that most likely will be regretted during their life. This may lead to years of regret perhaps leading the person to need to cover up their bodies consequently. To it may result in endless painful tattoo removal costing ten times around the original tattoo.
