What do people say?...
It depends on the tattoo, the story behind the tattoo, the way the woman relates to her tattoo, and the person doing the viewing.
A few people (including men) don’t care one way or another about tattoos at all. The woman with the tattoo has her preferences and her reasons, and it’s nobody else’s business.
Some find all tattoos to be questionable, and they judge those with tattoos to be of poor moral character.
Some respect all tattoos, no matter what the tattoo might be, and they will admire anybody with any tattoo at all.
Most people seem to vary depending on the tattoo. For example, the same people who mock and think less of those whose tattoos have spelling mistakes often also admire people who have beautiful or meaningful tattoos.
A tattoo is as much a choice as which clothes people choose to wear. Some people will judge everybody the same, no matter how they’re dressed, while others will judge people differently depending on what they choose to wear. The same often applies to tattoos (except that going out into public without wearing any tattoos at all is much more accepted than going out into public without wearing any clothes).
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.
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.
