Doctors, gangsters, clergy, couples, mothers, brothers, sisters, father: What do these people have in common? If you guessed, “they may have/want a tattoo,” you’re right! You don’t have to have one, but here are three great reasons to get a tattoo.

Ownership Over Your Body

All bodies are beautiful. Unfortunately, though, we don’t always think that way about ourselves. 

A tattoo can dramatically improve the way you see yourself. Whether you’re a trans person considering a gender-affirming piece or breast cancer survivor wanting to cover scarring, tattoos are a deeply personal way to reclaim ownership of your body & make you feel beautiful. 

Mental Health & Wellness

Depression & anxiety have been around since the beginning of time. We’re human. We feel things. But we all deal with those things differently.

For some who have a history of self-harm/cutting, tattoos can mark the end of a dark chapter. Artists can tattoo cover scars & provide healing through art.

Just Because

You do you, boo-boo; your body, your choice. Feel like getting some random Friday 13th flash? Great! Want to design your piece that represents something personal? Awesome.

The truth is there are many different reasons to get a tattoo… none of which you have to explain to others. As long as you’re happy with the work that you’re adding to your body that is all that matters. Show it off if you want to! Or maybe put it in a place only you can see. Whatever the choice may be tattoos are for yourself and if you so choose then maybe others will be able to enjoy it as well!

Regardless of your personal reasons to get a tattoo, Hush is here for all your tattoo needs.
