The adrenal glands (also known as supra renal glands) are endocrine glands that produce a variety of hormones including adrenaline and the steroids testosterone and cortisol. They are found above the kidneys. Each gland has an outer cortex which produces steroid hormones and an inner medulla.
It seem a lot of people are wanting tattoo’s now a days, they can be expensive dangerous
Why Can’t I Get A Tattoo, Mom!
As a artist and especially as a zentangle artist I have thought of getting a tattoo, a sleeve tattoo to be precis. To answer the question I have put as my tittle “Why Can’t I Get A Tattoo, Mom”. First I would like to point out that my mom is not saying I can’t get a tattoo, on the other hand she is OK with it .
The reason I am not able to get a tattoo is my adrenal gland is not working, as I have put up a description from “wiki” on what exactly a adrenal gland is I will break it down to a more understand able definition.
1. Adrenal glands are the producers of your adrenaline , testosterone and cortisol
– adrenaline: activates in a course of sever stress increasing rates of blood circulation, breathing, and carbohydrate metabolism and preparing muscles for exertion.
-testosterone: a steroid hormone that stimulates development of male secondary sexual characteristics, produced mainly in the testes, but also in the ovaries and adrenal cortex.
-cortisol: It is released in response to stress and low blood-glucose concentration.(simple description)
Now all of these work together in the adrenal gland, the adrenaline is my problem my adrenal gland does not work after radiation. So that means that my body is not able to cope with major stress.
I don’t know the feeling of a tattoo needle on my skin feels like, but I am under the assumption it hurts. To relate to a serious stress. You break your leg it hurts, but your adrenaline jumps in not as bad. I break a leg I feel the extent of the broken leg. Your body can take only a certain amount of stress till it gives away. The possibility of me dying from a broken leg is very real. So I have to take medication to replace my adrenal gland.
Now people have asked what happens if you need to use fight or flight ability, well I would like to say I have not had the chance to test it yet and hopefully won’t ever have to.
