People are searching for the ways of beautifying and attracting attention to their bodies and it’s quite natural. We want to be noticed and show our body as we see it.
There are several types of body modification and I’d like to talk about tattoos and bodybuilding. These are two forms of art which are not completely understood in modern society.
Tattooing and bodybuilding are for strong and dominant people who want to show their individuality. The understanding of “normal” in society varies and when it comes to tattoos not all people are ready to feel their meaning and real beauty. The same thing is with bodybuilding.
Some people become nervous in the presence of hunks and tattooed persons as they can’t comprehend such things. But the fact that more and more people get tattooed and men and women all over the world try to keep feet and bodybuilding becomes a way of life for most of them changes the situation.
For example, in 1936 10 million Americans had one or several tattoos and in 2003 this number grew to 40 million. Nowadays more and more people become tattoo lovers as tattoo helps to define who they are. Tattoo may represent a special event and is done for sentimental reasons.
The main thing is that people who go for bodybuilding and get tattoos are ready to stand any reaction of society and are strong enough to be individuals and feel great because they love their bodies and want to make them more attractive not hiding it under stylish clothes but showing it off.
Usually a person with unique tattoo or muscled body is admired or loathed.
Woman can get elegant tattoo design and some forms of female tattooing are almost accepted by society while female bodybuilders are often ostracized for that. But the times when women were supposed to be soft and lean are behind- modern life requires strength of will and of body both from men and women.
Both tattooing and bodybuilding are connected with pain. The difference is that the pain of the tattooing doesn’t last long and one should only bear the pain of the needle penetrating the skin. And building muscle requires intense muscle contractions and heavy lifting causing tearing, rebuilding and growth of the muscle fibers. The pain is regular.
Bodybuilders and tattooed persons get addicted to the chosen type of body art and once they have withstood the pain and discomfort of the process, they want to continue.
The main difference of body bodybuilding and tattooing is that the muscles can atrophy over the time if the bodybuilding isn’t maintained and tattoo stays on the skin forever.
Most bodybuilders get tattooed and tattoo ink put into unique designs look great on beautiful muscled body.
Both art forms require special attitude and in the case of bodybuilding lifestyle- don’t forget to support the body with high quality supplements to achieve desired results and feel great.
Tattooing should be done in sterile and trusted salon by professional tattoo artist. Tattoo needles should be high quality as well as all tattoo equipment.
It’s great when we enjoy the beauty of our body and do our best to make it more attractive and meaningful. Tattoos and bodybuilding are popular body art forms and they can be easily combined.
