First, we imagine on how we appear to be another person. Secondly, we imagine what judgements people make of us due to our appearances. Lastly, we imagine how people feel about us, based on the judgements made of us. Hence, we often change our behaviour based on how people perceive us.

Lots of shops make you sign legal paperwork because a tattoo is considered a procedure. “The problem with tattoos is exactly what makes them so appealing - their permanency.”(Carley Lintz "FYI: What Makes Tattoos Permanent?" 2013) .The best advice for anybody looking to get a tattoo would be think of a design and if you still love it a year later then get it inked into your skin.

The social imagination is a basic skill that enables people to understand the larger historical scene. C. Wright Mills introduces this idea in his book titled The Sociological Imagination from Charles Lemert’s edition. Mill’s argues that the first impression of imagination, embodies the idea of understanding for individuals, he then counters that same argument by saying that, ‘human nature[is] frightening broad’ (Pp 267). I would like to think that through his analysis of the social imagination, that Mills set the format for a style of reflection when it comes to the intellectual age, but Mill’s was born in the 1900’s.
C.Wright Mills (1916-1962) used the theory of social imagination to describe how people decide what affects them in their daily lives and to link the individual with society.

The jumping off point for this project came when I was reflecting on and reviewing my works and practices to date, trying to locate the question of what it is I wish to express. My work thus far has been interrelated and my voice as an artist is imbued within the corporeal and the formal qualities of the materials. My research and practice lie within the human condition, from the somatic to the many varied psychological landscapes we experience. I explore the question of what it means to be human and our understanding of ‘place’ within the world. Maurice Merleau Ponty’s essay ‘Eye and Mind’ examines how art displays the act of viewing, extending from Martin Heidegger’s Being-in-the-world, ‘The Sense of Being’.

Tattooing is considered by and large safe when done by an accomplished tattooist who cleans hardware and takes after legitimate sterile practices, and if proper consideration is taken amid the mending procedure.
