I will pay for the following essay Exploring the Possible Relationship between Tattoos and Maladaptive Behavior. The essay is to be 7 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page.
Confirmed in the study of Nelson and Rawlings (2010), there is a strong relationship between psychopathological and creativity in the sense that artists were found to have “positive” schizotypy, unipolar affective disturbance, thin boundaries, and personality dimensions of Openness to Experience and Neuroticism.
There are quite a lot of research studies suggesting that the presence of a body tattoo is one of the most common indicators wherein a person is at risk of taking negative behaviors like violence, drug abuse, sexual behavior, and suicide (Carroll et al., 2002). In fact, body tattoos are commonly associated with criminals and individuals who are anti-social, sadistic, negativistic, and borderline (Rozycki Lozano et al., 2010. Manuel & Retzlaff, 2002). Based on the research findings of Kidd (2009), there is a lot of homeless youth who ends up being an artist since drawing enables them to express their negative emotions. .
In relation to the study of Nelson and Rawlings and Post (Nelson and Rawlings. Post), a literature review will be conducted to examine whether or not being an artist is a natural talent or just a consequence of their personal values, upbringing, environmental surroundings, politics, or a negative experience in life. Gathering literature regarding few of my favorite tattoo artists from the 18th, 19th, and 20th century including Jack Armstrong, Abey Alvarez, Darryl Gates, Jesse Varela, and Eric Iovino among others as well as those individuals whose work is related to the focus of my study will help us better understand the artists’ state of mind. .
Today, body tattoos are considered a modern form of self-portrait. Staring at the photos of my friends and family members with tattoos on their body parts, I became curious about the possible link between the culture of tattoos and maladaptive behavior. .  .
