Obsession; Not Just a Fandom But A Lifestyle:

Obsession is a powerful thing, as a man from the UK has proven. A lot of people in the UK love their baked beans, they are a stable in the full English breakfast. But few can proclaim the same love for the tinned goods, as the self named Captain Beany. This native of Wales, has taken his love to a whole new level. Converting his whole house to a museum all for baked beans and his love of them.

But Captain Beany took it one step further, he got his whole head tattooed to commemorate his obsession. So now his full scalp displays a nice portion of baked beans. He proudly sports his head tattoo, as he shows people around his museum, with quite the charisma and pride. Showing us that obsessions aren’t necessarily harmful.

Captain Beany is far from the only person in the world, who takes their rampant love of something under the needle. Fandom tattoos are quite common, though they do not have to involve the same degree of love for something, as they do in Captain Beany’s case. Non the less, an innumerable number of tattoos are gotten for a reason, which is somehow connected to the love or care for something. Not only that, we see many fan tattoos devoted to people’s favourite food, brand, movies, places and so on.

Final Comment:

So a little bit of a harmless obsession, won’t hurt anyone. whether you cover your whole body head to toe in horror tattoos, or get your scalp covered in baked beans. Do as you will and follow your heart, as long as you are happy and wear it with pride, it is all awesome. Just do remember to think it through.
