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.
Not a big fan of women with tattoos. I never once seen a woman with a tattoos and said “Wow, she’s better looking now that I seen that”. However, I seen pretty girls with gaudy ones. And said “Damn, why would she go and put extra ink on that beautiful canvas she got.
It’s your body, so it’s your choice. I guess I never seen the beauty in them.
