Lower Back tatoos = a good Icebreaker?
Posted: 3/7/2006 7:18:56 PM
Yeah, I think they would be an interesting way to get a woman's attention. I have been thinking about getting one, but have yet to decide how wide and how high. I am tempted to get my naval pierced too, but I don't really have any shirts that are short enough, so I need to broaden my wardrobe too.

Your local customs may vary, but where I'm at, pierced navels on men are typically a display of their homosexuality, akin to the way piercing the right ear used to be viewed. (Not that there's anything wrong with that....)

Might just wanna double check that one, sport.

Well I guess that I am just not that shy. I have commented to several women about a nice tatoo, on thier lower back, if I felt it deserved comment, because it was unusal or just stood out. Personnally, I would not persue the conversation beyond that point. I have heard many men comment to the effect that a tattoo on the lower back is a slut badge, meaning easy sex. I find women wearing tattoo's a major turn off, but that is me, meaning you can't generalize from that and interpret that to mean that you should behave this way or that. If you find that attractive (tattoo's), and you need that kind of an ice breaker then use it, what the hell.

Tattoo on lower back? May as well be a bullseye.

Well, I imagine if you have that kind of predator attitude anything you say just might get you slapped.

I am conflicted on these - to me, they're like swimsuits. The right one, on the right person, looks awesome. The wrong one, &/or on the wrong person, is detractive. But, hey, tats are a personal decision.

Actually that was a line from Wedding Crashers..hilarious movie.

Ah, then you have my apologies. I have heard that "Wedding Crashers" is funny.

As for tats, I don't think I'd be using it as an ice-breaker; might find something else ("Wow! You enjoy Tolstoy, too???" ), then bring it up later. One reason might be that if you mention the tat first, the lady might be thinking the first thing you actually checked out was her a***.

That might be true, but, hey, let's not be gauche at first contact!

That is her having her tattoo THERE< she wants you to be checking that part of her body out actually.

That's arguable. Just because there's a tattoo on the lower back doesn't mean you should go lower and check the quality of the gluteus maximus. Do you do the same if you see a navel tattoo? Or if the tattoo is on a male, is he asking for someone to check his goods?

Anyway, as I said, it's not whether or not you can check her out, it's whether it's respectful, or even smart, to bring it up as an icebreaker.

True story - when I was in college, a guy I know approached a girl in a department store. He literally said, "Hey, you've got a nice a** - want to go out tonight?" I'll let you figure out her answer.

I never thought much about tats until.............. I went with my son on a school field trip to the museum ( he was 8 at the time) and his second grade teacher bent over to show the kids something and there it was! A big wide tramp stamp. Ugh. It was impossible to take her as a serious teacher after that.
