Just my personal taste--but if she's got a tat, she might as well have bad breath, dandruff, and snort when she laughs. Instant lust killer.

No, I wouldn't ask anyone about that. And if things had gotten as far as you're talking about, a tattoo probably wouldn't make any difference. It's a lot easier to put out a candle than a whole fireplace full of burning wood (so to speak).

I'm saying more that if I were talking with someone, and I could see a tattoo on her, it would undo a lot of whatever else she had going for her. But I'm sure I'm sort of the odd man out on this one.

Well I guess I'm not surprised to know I'm the odd one that likes good ones place right, even though I have no desire to get one.

Q for the MEN in the group: How many tattoos does it take before one considers the person no longer a lady but a skank (or any other suitable, derrogatory, trashy term)?

Sorry ladies, but I consider significant tattooing as low class. In history, only tribal people and society's outcasts (including criminals and pirates, but to some extent, many sailors) had them, and so it's always been associated with the lower working classes in our modern society. I think it's trashy.

To be fair, women in the group may rebut, but I want to hear from other guys first. I'm also not talking about a single inking which is small and easily hidden, but I do stop short of a full-body suit of ink.

I consider about 3-4 tattoos on different limbs or sides as the threshold.

I've got one that beats that: A woman named Michelle (since she was on Jerry Springer, it's public info) who is now about 33 and lives in the SFV, but formerly lived in Denver, who has "For Deposit Only" just below her waistline and "F.ck Slot" written vertically with one word on each side (right and left) of you-can-guess-where. She had several other tattoos as well. Supposedly, she slept with half of the bus drivers of the Denver MTA.


Aside: What's wrong with posing with a rabbit? Lots of other people have photos with animals in them, including exotics like kangaroos and tigers.

It was Maury Povich's show, not Jerry Springer. She was also interviewed on unaired episodes of The Dr. Keith Ablow Show as well as a segment for Dr. Phil in 2007.

Women like here only prove that tattoos are associated with trashy, not classy people.

Ive got one on my ankle of my sons name and a rose on a stem. I got it on the anniversary of his death. So yes some tats do have meaning...

I am not much on tattoos at all. The name of your son tremendous has meaning.

In other situations names are the worst thing to do. I have seen a few women who get names of sig-others only to have to get a cover up tattoo. I saw one who had to do that twice.

heres the thing tats have become the MOST trendy thing you can do nowadays. Before 1990 or so people got tattoos to be different. now people get tattoos to fit in and be like everyone else. Tattoos have become like top 40 music and the majority of people getting them now are posers.

What amazes me about tattoos is that most of the ones I have demonstrate people's poor taste. Having a cartoon embloazoned over your arms (all I could see) on a fat 40s woman is not a turn -on. I went on a cruise in 2004, met thiis very attractive woman from South Dakota who had a giant eagle on her back. Kinda startling.While I thought it was garish and overdone, to each his own.

I just think if anyone is going to get a tattoo, think about it hard for along time. You're stuck with whatever you get for a lonnggggg time

I am glad when people post that they like tats or have them so I don't waste time going out with someone just to find they have 18 tattoos. If people like them, that's fine, but there are still a number of people who don't.
As common as tattoos have become, there should be a place to list tattoos on pof. That way people who don't like them can find others who feel the same. There is a category for hair color and this seems way more important than that.

For me it depends on the amount and the art. I have been seeing more and more profiles of seemingly nice women, who unfortunately look like they did hard time in a Russian prison. If you have so many tats you look fully clothed nude... i'll pass. Though that's just my opinion.

To the original poster. I spend quite a bit of time in Sacramento and I notice with amazement how much more popular tattoos are there than even in the neighboring SF. I think it's just part of the local trashy culture. On the good note- not every woman in Sac is covered with tattoos, but the ones who are not might not be going out to the local clubs/bars which are.... trashy. Somewhat of a catch 22 I guess.

Agreed re: tats and "different areas", which also probably helps explain the different attitudes about 'em in general, as it's basically a matter of "cultures" and "class", much as we try to pretend that doesn't exist here. Which is why tattoos are just a lot more common and "acceptable" among a certain "group", which we also generally identify with Harleys, guns, C/W music, Nascar, Walmart, Fundamentalism, "trailers", Bakersfield, anything "fried", and various other "cultural preferences". While the acceptability of tats among typically more affluent, educated and otherwise more "professional" folks and areas, is usually not so much.

BTW, also agreed, that it's the height of narcissism & self-absorption to assume that just because someone's tat has "emotional significance" (to them), that anyone else should also give a rat's patootie about it, let alone wanna see it "displayed"! Although on the other hand, perhaps it's good that certain kinds of folks have chosen to "self-identify" themselves!

So IMHO, a tat may be fine on my mechanic, but the last thing I wanna see on my doctor or surgeon is a frickin' tattoo! OK, now cue all the comments, "but, but... my vet, nurse, chiropractor (aka, "doctor"!), nobel laureate, PhD, pulitzer prize-winning, multi-millionaire, celebrity, ex-husband, etc. has a tattoo...!" Yeah, that maybe so, but I'm betting he/she also digs Harleys, guns, C/W music, Nascar, etc. too!!

Well coincidentally, it seems like the sorta folks who are attracted to all that stuff, also usually have lots (and LOTS) of, um, "canvas" to display 'em on! ;-p

I think it depends on the woman. Some are tasteless and over done and on others its gorgeous and sexy. .


I totally agree. I personally like a woman with tattoo's, but if they are tasteless or in a place that is YUCK...then no thanks.

IMO, a nice tat and placement is very sensual.

funny story:
my ex had a drinking problem, and her current bf let her know that he wasnt interested in staying with her if she was just going to be wasted all the time. so on her birthday a couple months ago she decided to get a tattoo of the alcoholics anonymous (serenity) prayer on her right wrist to "prove" that she was serious about quitting being a drunk, after all she hadn't had a drink in almost two days at that point. well the sobriety lasted about another two days and now she holds her drinks with the same hand shes got the AA tattoo on!
-this actually kinda reminds me of the guy with the "straightedge" tattoo bumming a cigarette off me.

But, but.... "The best kind of Sneetches are Sneetches without!”

Of course he was also quoted as saying, "In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!" ;-p

"This may sound cliche' but the female body is a work of art in and of itself. Why would anyone defile their body with 'artwork' .. (he says as he disgustedly rolls his eyes). This is akin to drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa. If you like the artwork so much have it put on canvas and frame it then hang it on the wall."

THANK YOU. That's exactly how I feel.

I mean, why do we not want our kids to get tatts? Why aren't they doing that more often? What's stopping them, seriously?

Aren't we supposed to be teaching our kids to love and respect their bodies as priceless art? Why are they trying to teach kids that their bodies aren't good enough without some superficial, unrealistic and somewhat ugly crap, permanently embedded in their skin?? I just don't think they care enough.

If you really care, you might look like a control as**ole. But, that's the point. You have to get through to them somehow, how much you value them and maybe, one day, they'll learn to value themselves just as much, without your help.

I think we should stop insisting that kids wash up too. I mean, why not? It's a choice to live, clean or unclean, especially when you reach adulthood.

No, the truth is... a parent should never stop insisting that their son or daughter (old or young) keep up their hygiene. If your adult child is trying to kill themselves, you don't just stand there, watching, shaking your head in disbelief. Do you? It's the same goddamn premise.

I really can't wait for the day when a new mom sees her tattoo-less baby and says, "You're ugly now. But, just wait until we get you a tattoo." That will be a sure-fire sign that society is going down.

"I don't have any tattoos but I'm constantly asked where they are? People think because I have black hair and I nose stud I have tattoos too! I think they are attractive sometimes but could never pick anything I'd want on my body forever or that would match everything I want to wear! hahaha"

Nose stud and all, you are a ray of sunshine. At least, there is some hope for guys who don't want a tattoo-loving girlfriend. Thank you.

I mean, why can't these people wait for the time when they find a way to make the ink possible to put in and easily take out, without scarring, without a lot of money. It's bound to happen, sooner or later. To where the recipient is actually wearing a tattoo, rather than having their body permanently modified by ink. You know what I mean?
