Scientifically Proven Health Benefits of Tattoos
For a long time tattoos have been popular mostly among athletes and musicians or rappers because they portray who they are and the industry. There are various types of tattoos that one can put. They vary in terms of sizes and outlook. Apart from the physical benefits that come with being seen with a tattoo, there are others that are scientific in nature and they impact the health of an individual positively. Although it might be a bit painful, it is usually worth it. Here are some of the merits that come about with having multiple tattoos on your body.
Tattoos tend to increase your immune system allowing you to heal quicker in case you suffer from some illnesses. When you are being pricked by the needle, your body responds by trying to stack the foreign material invading your body(tattoo ink) and this is why swelling happens. However, after a while the body adapts and the swelling stops. An antigen by the name immunoglobin is produced that make a your body become strong in terms of its immunity. Another benefit of having several tattoos is that it tends to reduce your cortisol levels in the body. Cortisol is the stress causing hormone. When you are feeling pain for example when the tattoo is being drawn, you body releases cortisol to help reduce the pain from the pricking.
When you have several tattoos, the response of cortisol is less active due to overall reduction of stress levels in your body. Closely related to this is that tattoos are beneficial for athletes especially for those that do weight training. When cortisol levels are at a minimum, this means that muscles tend to recover faster and grow quicker too. This means that the rest days are reduced allowing them to maximize their training days. Normally, these trainees will use supplements to help fasten up the muscle recovery process but tattoos offer a natural solution to that which is much better.
Although most of the job hiring tend to discourage physical tattoos, some categories of jobs or roles advocate for tattoos and research has shown that it will increase your chances of being hired. Another merit of tattoos is that they tend to increase your confidence or self esteem. It is very exciting for some people to show off their new ink.
