What do people say?...
It might depend on the tattoos. If she was covered in swastikas or something else with (to me) a negative connotation, I would probably be inclined to move as far away from her as possible. There have been a few that I’ve seen that are so artistic and precise (without being truly weird to me) that I have looked at them more closely. Some actually look like photographs (very rare). I have no idea as to how they do that.
The only “tattoos” I have are some black dots on/near my breasts. They are the alignment points for the radiation therapy I had after my lumpectomy. They hurt like hell to get. They were considered necessary to pinpoint the area where cancer had been removed. They want to make sure that they hit only the correct areas with radiation. Not too much; not too little.
BTW, to a degree, although I don’t tend to show off any of my surgical scars, I consider them my badges of honor. Surgical scars don’t laser off to my knowledge.
Some religions have burial prohibitions. Normally, people with tattoos can’t be buried in a Jewish cemetery.
I see a person who:
1. Appreciates art.
2. Is confident.
3. Is comfortable with their own body (an attractive quality for me).
4. Could probably care less what you think of their body art.
5. Has a good job/career/money. Quality tattoos are a luxury service and are expensive!
6. Has a high threshold for pain (could be good or bad).
7. Could probably kick your a$$.
8. Is probably a lot of fun!
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.
