What do people say?...
I dated a supermodel type babe with an inordinate supply of tattoos. Some she drew herself, being a talented artist. Each one had huge meaning to her. It is like wearing your story on the outside. It seemed to help her with the pain she felt on the inside from past abuse. I was fine with it. She was a really thoughtful, kind and gentle person. We all have scars. Some inside and some outside. Choosing to take that pain and wear it, gives people a way to voice that, be it heartbreak or love or anger or fear. See the tattoos for what they are, a story.
Too many can be overwhelming if it’s on every inch of skin. I have around 7, that are not in obvious places. I had around 10 before and had some lasered off. If it covers every inch of skin, I would think the lady went a little crazy with her tattoo artists, unless she’s a rocker from a rock band or tattoo artist herself.
I also think too many can look unsightly on a woman, which is why I only chose 7, mostly on places you can’t see, like my back or my ankles, or upper arm. I got mine with the intention of still working a job, which required me to wear long shirts in which you wouldn’t notice that I was inked up. A few is not bad, but I’m more liberal about it, than most people because I have a few tattoos myself, mostly they are simple, less offensive tattoos, like tattoos of roses and butterflies and dolphins and hearts.
I only worry about people that get tattoos of their spouse, or boyfriend, KKK and Nazi affiliation tattoos, gangster and thug life tattoos, tattoos imitating some musicians or celebrities’ tattoos, skulls and crossbones, Harley Davidson tattoos, etc., people I’ve met with the above mentioned tattoos always seem to be tattooed on people that commit a lot of crimes and are gangbangers or criminals and thugs. I avoid people with tattoos like this in general.
Other than that, I don’t care. Women are women, if they want to get inked up, they can or not, if they don’t want to and depending on what type of job she has. Where I live people are getting more accepting of it these days and racing off to get one. But if a woman has a tattoo of some racist or violent thug life gang banger affiliation I would suggest you avoid her like plague, unless you want to be part of that lifestyle. Ok, I’ve said my piece, I’m done, Thanks for the question.
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.
