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.
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.
If men think this way at all it would imply only the reason that they think those kind of women are more adventurous and open to doing different things with their body.
While this connotation is based ONLY on men’s individual mindsets on women, not every guy or most guys think this way and usually women don’t EVER get tattoos for any other reason because they want and or enjoy tattoos.
Just my opinion tho, I think this is just someone elses opinion based off of what they know or have seen with women getting hit or or women they know with tattoos that don’t have an issue getting guys. Thing is, most women in general don’t ever have an issue with guys, tattoos or not so think it just all boils down to preference and how the girl handles herself.
