I currently got my belly button pierced. I want to get a tattoo and I want gauges as well, just wanted to know what the opposite sex thinks of it. Is it a turn on or a turn off? and how much is too much?

So I know you're asking for a guy's opinion on this, but as a girl, I have had this conversation with many of my guy friends. Most I've talked to are not fans of tattoos at all, but piercings don't seem to be an issue. I think what most guys (and hopefully girls) don't want is a girl who looks trashy. For example, some girls can have an eyebrow piercing and have it look really nice on them. Other girls, who may be a little bit rough looking, may not suit an eyebrow piercing at all as it makes them look even rougher. Tattoos are pretty much the same way, they need to be done in modesty. Large tattoos of say, a dragon (for lack of a better example), climbing up your back usually do not look classy. But if you were to get a smaller, less "cliched" tattoo on your back it could look very nice. Guys also seem to dislike tattoos with very little personal meaning, such as butterflies or stars, where there may not be any emotion attached. The thing is with tattoos, if you want to get something that means a lot to you, it shouldn't matter what the opposite gender thinks. In the end, you're getting a tattoo for yourself. You're not going to want to be with a guy who's going to be turned off of you completely because of what you have on your body. As I said, I know you were looking for a guy's opinion but I hope this helps... :)5
