What do you think of women with any number of tattoos?
Do you make general assumptions, think it's hot, trashy, etc..?
Does it say something about her, or do they not make any impression?

I'm glad you asked this and can't wait to see more of the responses! As a woman, I have multiple tattoos -- I think I have five now -- and until recently didn't have any that could be seen with ordinary clothing.
I have a tendency to get a tattoo to commemorate life events, and recently got a Kanji symbol (for perseverance) on the back of my neck. I was really worried how people would perceive me -- aka the fall from classiness comment above -- but it has opened up the door to many conversations from all sorts of people, not just men. When they hear the story behind it, they all seem to love it and don't seem judgmental at all, but I often wonder what people who DON'T know the story think when I walk down the street and have my hair up.
I also love your screen name. I have a jersey tattoo that says "Karma" that is my fave tat of all
I find I'm judgmental with tats regarding what it's of and what it symbolizes to the person. It's not for me to judge but I find myself doing it anyway. I really like the tat my husband has and his reasoning for it. I considered having one myself but can't bring myself to commit to the idea so I remain ink-less. I'd have to be really sure of the design and the artist.
I rarely like seeing tats on women. I don't make a call on lifestyle or any of that stuff, but it's more that I've rarely seen tats that I respected on women. "How does the view look from up high on your regal chair?" I hear you ask. Yes I know, but it's how I feel. It wouldn't affect how I felt about the person as a whole but I do know that I feel more respect for the tat if it has particular significance. One close friend has a great tattoo that I deem (from my judgement chair) as really great - for it's well thought design and what it represents to her.
I'm 42 and getting my first one next month..
It's going to be on my right shoulder (where I had my middle lobe of my lung removed)... it's going to be a cardinal perched on a cancer ribbon..and it's going to have MOM in the middle and a few flowers around it..
My mom died of lung cancer, and I associate cardinals with her, so thought would be simple and nice...
