There is certainly a perception that tattoos can be pretty addictive, when you've got one, you want another one.
The problem is they are a pretty expensive obsession, and the bills can certainly rack up if you get inked fairly often.
One woman who is renowned for all her tattoos is Melissa Sloan, who is actually famed for being covered in head to toe in ink.
In fact, the mum-of-two has 800 tattoos, leading her to believe she is the 'world's most tattooed person'.
You are probably thinking how often Melissa gets a tat - considering she has so many - well, the mum gets a staggering three a week, which is certainly impressive.
But while Melissa loves tattoos, she is now all too familiar with being left out and not even permitted to enter certain venues because of the way she looks.
Over the years, the 46-year-old has been banned from a variety different areas of life, including work, school, and even the boozers.
In fact, the mum has even been banned from some tattoo parlours as they don't feel comfortable tattooing her out of fear she has an ink addiction.
Nonetheless, Melissa says there's 'nothing she can do about it' now, though the taste of a nice cold pint in the British summer is surely a big miss.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: "I can't get a job. They won't have me. I applied for a job cleaning toilets where I live and they won't have me because of my tattoos.
Melissa claims she had to watch her children's nativity play last year through the window, as she was not allowed inside of the school.
"No Christmas parties and when I go to my child's school, I don't get invited," she said.
Every inch of Melissa's head is covered in tattoos, but one layer was not enough for the tattoo lover.
It got to the point where she started inking over her original designs until she had covered her whole face twice.
Since then, she has even done it a third time, meaning the Guinness World Record is on the way shortly, right?
Melissa is that adamant she wants a Guinness World Record to prove she is the world's most tattooed person.
She said: "I'm trying to get into the Guinness book of records.
"I've got three layers on my face, I probably have the most tattoos in the world, and if not then at the rate I'm going on I probably will have in the end - I keep going over and over them."
