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?

You're going to get varied responses. It really comes down to what each man finds attractive. I have a couple of my own, so perhaps I'm a bit biased. Generally speaking, I find them to be "neutral". It doesn't amplify or detract from their appearance if they have a couple. However, I'm not much of a fan for complete sleeves/whole body tattoos. I want to see some skin, not just ink.
The absolute best opinion I can have of a woman with a tattoo is that she is "exotic." From there, depending on the tattoo(s) the opinion can reach as low as "methhead trash."
I assume that if she has a visible tattoo, she probably has other tattoos that are not visible. If the woman in question has (visible) unusual (non-earlobe) piercings, skip "exotic" regardless of the tattoo, and assume a better-than-50% chance that she has Hep C.
If she has a full sleeve tattoo, I assume she has been with more men than a porn star, most of them bikers.
I assume generally that women start off with sex. Some move on to drug use. Some move past drug use to piercings and tattoos. I assume that to get to tattoos, you have been though sex and drugs. And rock-n-roll, just for good measure.
I'm not saying that all women progress this far, or even in that order. I am sure there are plenty of tattooed virgins out there who have never had a drink in their lives. I've just never met any of them.
Having said all this, I don't actually care that much. People make all kinds of choices, and I could care less what life experiences led a random woman to get tattooed, or whatever else she has done in life. I know one woman who I am told has 7 tattoos, and I never would have thought it- none are visible, and she is a good wife to a very good friend. And I think mostly well of, her. Her tattoo-edness simply doesn't figure in my opinion of her.
I toss my general assumptions out the window when dealing with people as individuals, because you just never know, and assumptions get in the way of finding out.
What the tattoo is matters. The quality of the tattoo matters. Where the tattoo is matters. If they were done in prison it matters.
Some tattoos can be hot. I think a lower back tattoo can be hot and still be trashy.
I know they are trendy now. The biggest problem I have with them is that unlike other forms of expression they are more or less permanent.
Also, one quality tattoo in the right place may be fine. But then this becomes a culture thing where there is a next and a next and so on.
I :heart: blowjobs would be a poor choice IMHO. But a tongue pearcing would have some synergy.
That said, if that is what folks want to do then fine. But there are few tattoos that have made me feel better about that person.
If I were to have a tattoo it would be one of:
USN Anchor like my dad had.
VF41 Black Ace Patch
Something Bushido related.
I know this was not the question but just pointing out it is something I have thought about for myself. I would never do this without my wife being fine with it. I think tattoos tend to be more masculine like a beard.
I seriously doubt I would ever get one.
