What do people say?...
It depends on the tattoo, the story behind the tattoo, the way the woman relates to her tattoo, and the person doing the viewing.
A few people (including men) don’t care one way or another about tattoos at all. The woman with the tattoo has her preferences and her reasons, and it’s nobody else’s business.
Some find all tattoos to be questionable, and they judge those with tattoos to be of poor moral character.
Some respect all tattoos, no matter what the tattoo might be, and they will admire anybody with any tattoo at all.
Most people seem to vary depending on the tattoo. For example, the same people who mock and think less of those whose tattoos have spelling mistakes often also admire people who have beautiful or meaningful tattoos.
A tattoo is as much a choice as which clothes people choose to wear. Some people will judge everybody the same, no matter how they’re dressed, while others will judge people differently depending on what they choose to wear. The same often applies to tattoos (except that going out into public without wearing any tattoos at all is much more accepted than going out into public without wearing any clothes).
I don’t go out with women but have this theory that women who go for tattoos are not afraid to display the more masculine aspects of their personality and men rather like this as they could relate to a woman who may also like football and beer. This is not to say that all women with tattoos are butch but demonstrate a certain self power which is rather appealing to some men.
Like many others, I wouldn’t be a fan of any racist or offensive tattoos.
But putting those obviously controversial ideas for a tattoo aside and assuming they are tattoos that don’t have an offensive meaning behind them, I personally love women covered in tattoos. I love tattoos on anyone. A woman doesn’t need to be covered in them either. I would like a woman with any number of tattoos of any shape or size. I may not be a personal fan of certain styles or designs but typically having one or more already says something about that person.
Now, I would different about a woman who had a tattoo of their ex-boyfriend’s name on them as I think most people who have an interest in tattoos would agree. I’ve been in that position myself with an ex-girlfriend getting my name tattooed on herself, those kinds of tattoos also say something about that person and it’s not usually a positive thing. Assuming they are “good” tattoos, nothing racist or offensive and not bad ideas like a partners name. But instead are well thought out designs and are real pieces of art, then I love them.
As I said, I may not be a personal fan of the design or style, but I don’t need to be. They are not my tattoos, it’s not my body, nor does my opinion on them really mean anything anyway. I still find just as much enjoyment and find it just as attractive because of how unique it makes that person look. I’m sure even I have my limits on how many tattoos are too many, but I’ve yet to find that limit.
At this moment, I love women who are covered in tattoos and find it very attractive. Not to mention the amount of conversation it can spark considering every tattoo has a story of its own, however long/short or meaningful/meaningless it may be.
