Has a change in personality affected your relationship with your tattoo?
We don’t always remove our tattoos because we may have to for work or due to the break up of a relationship. Sometimes we just, change.
Despite the fact that many people believe that they will be the same person today as they will be tomorrow many studies prove otherwise. It can be found that between the ages of 20 and 65 most individuals will go through major shifts in personality.
As defined by Wikipedia: “Personality refers to the pattern of thoughts, feelings, social adjustments, and behaviours consistently exhibited over time that strongly influences one’s expectations, self-perceptions, values, and attitudes. It also predicts human reactions to other people, problems, and stress. There is still no universal consensus on the definition of “personality” in psychology”
Your personality is you and everything that makes you. You are constantly changing in relation to all your thoughts and experiences, so naturally some of us (myself included) will outgrow the tattoos we place on our bodies.
An article by TIME points out that in a survey of taken of 19000 people;
“The average 33-year-old surveyed expected less change over the next decade than the average 43-year-old reported actually had occurred over the past decade. As the paper says, “People, it seems, regard the present as a watershed moment at which they have finally become the person[s] they will be for the rest of their lives.” Although personality and values do tend to become more stable with age, people generally underestimate the extent of future personality shifts. The researchers call this phenomenon “the end of history illusion.”
From this it can be said that although we may be certain we know who we are in the present, this does not exempt us from change in the future. Change is inevitable.
Major events such as buying a house, child birth, marriage, divorce, and even minor events such as making new friends, changing jobs or a job promotion can affect the person we are and the person we become. Not everyone changes for the same reasons, but everyone changes.For this reason, the skull and cross bones tattoo you got when you were 18 might now at the age of 35 not be exactly what you want to share your body with.
At Think Again Laser Clinic, we have clients from all walks of life, young and old male and female, tradesmen/women, chefs, lawyers and professionals.
Through our experience we have learnt that not everyone wants to completely rid themselves of their tattoo, they may wish to change or partially remove a small part, which no longer suits them. Others wish to only fade a tattoo so that it can provide a new canvas for a new piece of artwork that better represents their current self. We are equipped with the technology required to assist in all aspects of tattoo removal and use the worlds only all in one system for removing every colour of the spectrum, the Quanta Discovery Pico Plus.
If you have outgrown your tattoo, there is no need to live with something on your body that no longer represents you. With our Italian made Quanta technology used in our clinic our clients are not limited in the removal process. We can remove as much or as little of your black or bright multi-coloured tattoo as you desire, both safely and effectively.
No matter what age you are, if you are unhappy with your tattoo, it is never too late to ‘recreate the skin you’re in’.
