I can't explain it rationally, but people with tattoos come off as trashy even when they're not. The tattoos themselves can be amazing and beautiful artwork.
I try not to judge and keep my discomfort to myself. But given the choice, I wouldn't date a woman with tattoos.
I'll add I'm surprised at the large number of men here who dislike them, too. I thought it was just me!10
My biggest grip is that it's impossible to find people who haven't ruined their appearance with tattoos. I have dated people with tattoos, but that was after I knew them for a year and their other qualities allowed me to look past them.
Generally if I'm interested in romance or a hookup I won't even talk to people with a visible tattoo. I mean I don't shun people with them. I just don't talk to them when I want to find someone to sit across a restaurant table from me or join me in bed.
I've seen a lot of gorgeous people ruined by them. In the gas station where I use to buy lunch there was a beautiful woman working there. One of the most attractive people I've seen face to face, really. When I happened to look down while she was handing me my receipt I noticed that her wrists and knuckles were covered in tattoos, and one time she went in as a customer while I was there wearing a tank top. That's when I noticed the edges of a huge back tattoo.
It actually changed my perception of her. When I was just looking at her face with her hands behind the counter and her back tattoo completely covered she was still one of the most attractive people I've ever seen, but if I saw her hands those tattoos would drop her from a 100 (on a scale of 10) to a 5.22
I find a guy with a few tats in the right places sexy. Goes with that whole bad boy/rebel look. Of course, if their whole body is covered or they have face tats, that is a big turnoff.21
What Girls & Guys Said
If they're actually good - and more my taste (not cartoon-ish, but classically beautiful) I'd find them attractive.10
Don't really mind either way, i wouldn't say they're a turn on or off for me.21
Turn on but if it's a shitty tattoo it can also be a turn off10
My family is vroom Italian a lull my life I’ve been taught not to marry a guy with tattoos and don’t marry out of your race. For me personally it’s a turn on because when I see tattoos on a attractive Man I think bad boy which as you know is what every girl wants (if you don’t you’re lying to yourself). So yeah it they are well somebody tattoos that are unique and have meaning then yes it a soul is a major turn on. But that doesn't mean guys without are any less attractive, to me men with no tattoos are classy professional and know how to take care of themselves.10
Love tattoos! It's more attractive if there's a symbolic meaning/significance/story/memory to getting the tattoo than just a random tramp stamp or simply getting it to look "badass".
I have a quote inked on me - "I will be motivated by dreams, not negative realities." Was a quote my mum said, and one I try to keep close to heart when I'm feeling close to defeat.20
I've got a few, but they are not all over me because I like my looks just fine and don't need to accentuate, or destroy, my looks with tattoos. When they turn 55 you won't be able to even tell what their tattoos are on their wrinkled skin. Plus some tattoos fade pretty fast, even within a year.20
People start small with one or two. But 5 years later they look like a walking comic book. The body is beautiful, why hide it under tats? I don't get it. Girls with clear and flawless skin cover it with tats, while some people would give anything to have that clear skin.21
Have nothing against them.
But then again as long as the guy doesn't think of his body as a canvas and his body is filled with tattoos, I'm good.
Like for an example, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik. Styles has tattoos which are well spaced, not clustered. Malik has tattoos that makes his body look like a canvas.10
I honestly want a tattoo but my parents wouldn’t let me have one XD. My older sister has one on her foot and I’m possibly thinking of getting either one or two on my back or either my shoulder. Who knows though. But guys and girls (I’m bi but mostly into girls and I have a girlfriend) with tattoos are hot. Lol20
Tattoos can be attractive to me, but just few ones over all i hope. I dont get attracted to men covered with tattoo all over his body.
It looks cool and interesting tho no hate at all, but it won't pass the line of me being in a relationship with the person.30
Like bumper stickers on a Ferrari. TACKY
For some reason, a whole lotta people these days think that if you drill holes in your body parts and apply permanent ink, you somehow are elevated, your value is improved, you've been made a better person.
I voted C, with a slight edit: if they all have some kind of personal meaning, and are not simply an impulse purchase "because it's cool and I like it".
Tattoos are a form of art, and should always be used to express something deeply personal to you.11
It really depends on the tattoo. I'm honestly not a big fan of the one leg sleeve. The writing can be hot or miss.
This may sound weird but since I have no tats myself I like touching my girlfriend's tattoo. You can kinda feel it a bit.
Back-shoulder tattoos are usually hot.12
I like tasteful Tats but it is a complete turn off to see excessive Tats. Arm tats and breast Tats and especially all over Tats turn me off. Huge Tats like back or chest will get you the pizza guy number not mine. But small tasteful and or meaningful Tats are a turn on.11
Yeah they're a complete turn off for me when someone has tattoos. However tattoo art is sometimes so beautiful I'd love to have some of the geometric patterns or mandalas framed on my wall or something.20
It's not a complete deal breaker.
If its small and inoffensive then whatever.
If it is actually meaningful, like the name of her dead brother, then yes, that's cool.
But generally its a turnoff. Particular those huge ones that scar a very visible part of the body.0
I have quite a few tattoos myself but it’s a turn off for if they are tatted on a chest guy or girl why cover one of the sexiest body parts? Or face. That’s weird. And weiner tats that’s just stupid and ugly10
i have four running down my left back shoulder blade. chinese symbols for love hope courage and strength. tattoos with meaning are nice but if u got one on your ass at a drunk party of a cartoon character? thats just dumb lol10
Tattoos are nothing to do with the person inside they are just a visual to help you see things that interest the person long as you love them. personally I love to see tattoos but I myself do not have any10
It really depends on the placement of the tattoo and what the tattoo is. For the most part, as long as it can be hidden, I don't really care. But I hate sleeves or stomach tattoos. I really hate when women tattoo their chest. Like, why? Gross.10

Tattoos fuck up femininity. You need be more feminine to make up for the missing visual sensitivity. Good for fucking her. See her as a rebel who wants her own unique daddy to break her. Generally, fully covering tattoos ruin a very important aspect of what makes women romantically appealing, however they also work well for getting to know her for who she is rather than what she looks like which is what most men do. Dirtiness of the tattoos yes makes her look as she is more about sex than love. Literal turn on? yes. Romantic turn on for the most part no. Tattoo tribalists however would be better to ask for they hang around other tattooed people which normalizes the appearance. Never have i looked at a tattooed woman and had a first impression that was love. All of that however goes away once you start talking to her. Women are unbreakable when it comes to nature. Easier to change a man's nature than it is a woman's. They are evolution after all. We perceive things based on experience. Most humans don't have them. Tattoos look dirty. We associate dirty with sex. If you're confident in yourself (appearance, conviction) than get tattoos, if you're out for a extreme man to break you extra good then get tattoos. Don't get them if you're normal and unsure of what you want. To me women only work appearance wise in extremes. All tattoo or no tattoo. Few tattoos = dirty. Fully tattoos = special girl. No tattoos = soft, sensitive and pure or traditional. Few tattoos were made for men, not women.
You literally said that full covering tattoos ruin a very important aspect of what makes women romantically appealing, and then you go on to say that it actually makes them special, but a few tattoos makes them dirty, or too sexual. What the actual fuck. All of that was contradicting and made no sense at all.
Also, I seriously can't understand how having tattoos means that a woman wants "a extreme man to break her extra good." People generally get a tattoo because THEY love it, not to lure in an abusive guy wtf
"All of that however goes away once you start talking to her" <-- don't bs me, woman. Grow the fuck up.
That's where the "All of that was contradicting and made no sense" came in. You bash people from having tattoos, then turn around and say all over is okay, but not just a few. But only once you talk to her. Just trying to understand your point, it was a little all over the place.
And I'm not being a smart-ass when I ask what makes you say that last part about wanting an extreme guy to break them real good. I'm honestly asking what makes you feel that a woman with a few tattoos is asking for that?
@Ashlyn96 he has a point but I agree with you too, I liked an actress an found her beautiful... then all of a all of a sudden , then BAM ! Tattoo all over... yeah to many is unattractive... take Rihanna as an example.
I totally understand people not liking all over tattoos. I was just confused as to what he meant, especially by that last part.
Ummmm... I take that I agree her... he make sense when he already said he didn't like them.. I guess.
