The Secret Benefits Of Having A Lot Of Tattoos

The more ink you have, the better.
The Secret Benefits Of Having A Lot Of Tattoos

Getting a tattoo may change your look on the outside, but did you know that it can also change you on the inside? 

It turns out that there are some benefits to getting tattoos (Other than looking cool AF, of course.)

Having a lot of ink means you are more resistant to germs, viruses and infections. Don't ask me how this works, I'm not a "scientician".

Researchers in the U.S. took saliva samples from individuals before and after giving them tattoos. The people who already had tattoos recovered faster than those who had no ink whatsoever.

The first tattoo you get lowers your resistance, but in the long run the more tattoos you have the stronger your immune system gets.

So if your parents ever give you any shit for getting tattoos, tell them: "I'm not getting tattoos, I'm curing my cold".
