How do guys feel about women with tattoos?

Most guys love a tattoo that is done right. They like tattoos that are artistic and aesthetically pleasing and that has a special meaning or a memorable story attached to it. When a tattoo is done wrong, it makes a girl look worse, possibly significantly worse.

There are guys on both ends of the spectrum. Some guys hate tattoos. It doesn’t matter what the size, shape, design or location. Sometimes this is due to religious reasons, they believe all tattooing is immoral.

We do not own our bodies, we are merely shepherds. It is our responsibility to take care of our bodies and return them in the best condition possible without defacing them with tattoos.

Other guys think the more tattoos the merrier. That you cannot have enough tattoos. Case in point is a subreddit dedicated to hot chicks with tattoos (nsfw).

Tattoos are the ultimate expression of yourself on your body. It’s permanent and a snapshot of your life experiences at the time you get the tattoo. For better or worse, it is uniquely you, and that is what honest attraction is all about.

Typically though, guys fall in the middle. They love tasteful tattoos, but don’t like when it overtakes a girl’s natural beauty.

Too much of a good thing?

I don’t mind a few well placed, quality tattoos. A friend of mine is absolutely stunning, but she just has so many tattoos littering her body that she is much less attractive because of it. A huge chest piece, both arms full sleeves, a huge tattoo on her side and legs, feet almost covered. Even her hands are covered. Now she just looks trashy.

Do guys avoid dating girls with tattoos?

No. Just 4% of men consider tattoos a deal-breaker for a relationship. They are typically ultra-conservative and / or religious such that they will not date women with tattoos. You must consider however, whether these are the types of guys that women would want to date. Most guys would not avoid dating a woman simply because she had a tattoo.

There have been studies that show women with tattoos, in general, have less formal education, smoke more, have lower self-esteem, and are prone to impulsive and risky behaviors. These studies are biased however. They don’t distinguish between the aesthetics.

If a woman, or man for that matter, gets themselves covered in all sorts of random tattoos, it’s reasonable to suggest there are some underlying issues. But what about something tasteful?

A greater percentage of guys are ruled by their own stereotypes. Some guys have the impression that women with tattoos are too free-spirited, too emotional, psychologically damaged. They believe that life with a woman with a tattoo equates to a relationship full of drama.
