How about you try to get used to it? Or go to theraphy and get help? You will be fine, they won't hurt you so you have no reason to worry. You can also go on the Internet and fin dout information so you can get help and read what can help.
I am sorry what you are going through. Your not the only one. People are pretty scared of things like that. Including I am scared of old black and white pictures. *sighs*
One thing that they don't do, is that they didn't hurt you or do anything. It's just ink like on paper.
You can go to therapy too. Or you could get over your fear by acting really strong. When you are driving and you see a shop, just don't look. Pretend it's not there. Same with tattoos. Just don't look. Be strong.
I know what your going through. I am pretty scared of elevators, heights, old things, and those pictures.
Seems pretty silly? People have VERY silly things that they are scared of.
There is nothing to be scared of. Just act strong.
Yeah. It's hard to get past phobias sometimes. The best thing to do is confront them. Think "Why am I scared of this?" or "Will they hurt me?" Then confront them. Tattoos are just like paint on skin. They aren't going to consume your family in the middle of the night. You'll be fine. Sometimes, you can just not look at them. . .or imagine a loved one in each one. . .
I am so sorry to hear about this !!! Maybe therapy as others suggested could help you. Also maybe talking to your close Family could help too!!! Try not to worry too much !!! I think you are very brave for talking about this to us !!! You also have your Webkinz Insider Family her to help you too !!!! Good Luck !! Let us know if you need anymore help !!!
Have you talked to your family about this? They might be able to help. Phobias may seem irrational, but can be dealt with rationally. I have a terrible phobia of heights, and usually avoid them, but sometimes I force myself to go with a 'safe person' and confront that fear, ie. going to the top floor of a building and looking out the window. It can be taken in small steps. You'll get braver with each step.
I'm so sorry to hear that tattoos upset you! We all have different fears. Maybe, and I don't know if this is a good idea or not mind you, maybe you could have someone find pictures of tattoos that you might think are pretty or cute. Like kittens or bufferflies maybe. Then it wouldn't seem so scary.
I went to our local zoo and there were these very scary looking turkey vultures hanging out. I looked up info on them on wikipedia and found out why they do some of the things they do (that were scaring me frankly!). I learned about them and then they weren't so scary after all. I still avoid them however!!
Good luck! I hope you feel better. And try not to let any of this ruin your lovely trip!
