What do people say?...
Tattoos seems to be the in thing for the young girls of this generation.
Women in general love to adorn themselves with colourful designs on their palms and hands by application of herbal pastes during festivities and important functions. But, those designs will fade away shortly and are viewed by all as an acceptable traditional custom and a passing fancy.
Tattoos involve pain and patience and more importantly stay on the skin almost for life. In order to look novel and appealing, sometimes names of the lovers are included which has to be erased later (another very painful process) when there is a fall out.
Normally, it is not looked with favour by conservative males, particularly in India.
Therefore, the women with tattoos there must have pre-decided to ally only with those men who are truly progressive, have liberal attitudes and approve of them.
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.
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.
