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.
Well, massive tattoo coverage is not really my bag.
Personally (and I know this is one fellah’s preference) I’m more appreciative of sleeves and such on men than women. I can’t quite put my finger on why, though it has somewhat to do with liking the aesthetics of women’s limbs undistracted by tattoos.
All that said, seeing a heavily tattooed woman doesn’t freak me out or make me not like her. I will make a weak assumption that she’s likely more untraditional than an unadorned woman, but that’s about all I have to go on. I will say, I’ve found that people with tattoos often like to talk about them, so it can be a nice icebreaker.
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.
