What do people think of girls that are pretty covered in tattoos? I see that men seem to get away with it but not so much with women. I personally have 18 of them and wonder if that hinders me in a lot of ways... just thinking...

all my tattoo's are regretable circumstances, i don't regret the tattoo's themselves, just the way they were aquired. (one at a keg party and the rest home made) personally, when a girl walks by with a tattoo, makes me want to check it out a little closer. i see a person who is a little more adventuresome than most, maybe a little more out there than others. all the more interesting to me. but then, in a spiritual sense, it doesn't matter whats on the outside, what really matters is only on the inside.

Quoting mikedurkin

I find many guys hoping for a hook-up will say anything. I'm old and don't really give a crap about how people react to what I say. From my college days to this very moment, most of the educated men ( and women) I have been associated with have maintained that large or highly visible tats on women are trashy. Many men see them as an overt sign that the woman is "easy", but short of a quick romp, would never be interested in her. Some of the women I know who have "inked up " when they were 20 now regret it badly. Tastes change, colors fade, skin sags..... Ask someone who works with older people ( Nurse, PCA, Meals on Wheels...) what folks with old tats look like- pretty gross. Chose wisely young women and men, for when I interview you, I already know that you are someone missing the ability to consider the long term effects of your actions, your application goes in the round file- even if you look good on paper. Remember, Who I hire represents MY business, I want people who elicit confidence from my clients, not the hesitation or disgust.


well first of all as i mentioned before i actually spent years coming up with what i wanted done and yes they are visible when i want to be but ive never been on a job interview that i haven't got. Why? because im smart enough to know how to dress professionally. No matter what job it is I usually wear clothes that cover my tattoos because of business attire and for those men who assume that women who are heavily tattoed are rojps in the sack, at least with me, they'd be sadly mistaken.

 

I believe tides are turning and further down the line it will be more acceptable. Tattoos are always touchupable, usually coverupable, changeable to all kinds of changing skin types so since i put forethought into what i was putting on my body and the future ramifications when i am old and wrinkly I am not too terribly worried.

 

But thanks for your take on it.

Tattoos are pretty much just like anything else....subjective. I prefer men without many tattoos...but some women LOVE them...it's just a matter of personal preference. I will say that most men seem to be attracted to women with confidence, so if you like & are proud of your body art, that's all that matters :)

Whats important is that you like them and are happy with them. Other people can have prejudices, but why would you want to be with them anyway?


Life is only as wonderful as you think it is.

I love them & I don't see why it should hinder you.  Judging from your profile picture, you're gorgeous.  The tattoos just add to it.

well I certainly thought about what I added to my body, in some case years before I did. They are all represental of certain events good and bad in my life that I choose to remember this way. I also have made the choice to stay away from areas such as the side neck, chest, knuckles all which can be pretty hard to hide in a work place. Maybe when I'm old and grey and wrinkley I might regret them, but for the most part the kids think I am pretty cool and see them as more art work than tattoos. I don't just pull flash work off the wall to get tweetie bird tattood on my shoulder :>

Mogirl09,I say Dont give up in reference to you post of "I know that my eventual plan to get sleeves will exclude me from meeting possibly a good guy, but after some thinking if they don't like me for who i am, what makes them so perfect right?" As with any thing in life there will be those whom you can't please, no matter what you look like or wear.So the only one you need to please is you self. Like NerdyGuy said "Judging from your profile picture, you're gorgeous" I agree also. I will add this response to you post of "I personally have 18 of them and wonder if that hinders me in a lot of ways" I veiw it as it can affect one's emotional attitude just as much as being Obese.If you let the emotions of others affect you. Yeah tattoo's can like being 500 pounds kinds( As I was once ) of limits some of your your options , However I am still me inside weather at 500 pounds or 330 pounds.

Of course you are held to a higher standard in the corporate world. You are a woman. I have tatoo's myself, but they are inconspicuous. My niece got a huge tat on her neck, covers the whole right side of it... (I have to say that even I think it was tasteless) I told her immediately after seeing it that she would be lucky to get a job outside of a convenience store or fast food joint. Maybe it is a generational thing, good for you that America's youth as I knew it to be is coming into their own these days, growing up and opening their own businesses.

I think maybe it is a generational thing as you say, in part. My generation of the late sixties early seventies was familiar with tatoos on our ankles, and wrist mostly... for woman.The bad thing is that styles and taste change. Trust me, someday you more than likely will wish you had thought twice about it. Removing them is very painful and not always successful. Azure

well, i think it might be a generational thing. For instance my parents cannot stand my tattoos they associate them with prisoners, bikers and sailors. I know that my eventual plan to get sleeves will exclude me from meeting possibly a good guy, but after some thinking if they don't like me for who i am, what makes them so perfect right?

Yeah,As a Guy I have to say there is a double standard on tattoos . Personally I am not a fan of Tattoos, nor do I have any my self. However I harbor no ill will towards anyone whom has them. To me when the ink was done tastefully, and does not cover massive portions of the body it can be an asset. I knew a woman who had the initials of her baby son who died in a wreck tattoed on her chest. She said she did it to keep him allways close to her heart. I hope This helps . sory for the rambling post.
