What do people say?...
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.
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!
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.
