I'm not a fan of tats on men and women - usually makes them look try-hard gangster or too much like a self-proclaimed 'bad boy' or 'bad girl.' Even a small visible one is actually kind of a turn off, unless it's very artistic/interesting. I'd prefer a woman with no or minimal ink (nothing against ink, some of the art is amazing and they are skilled artists). Body art can look cool - but not permanently. I'd rather date a person, not a walking canvas lol. It's just not a look that gets me going. I'm not a prude or anything, but I prefer women to look more natural. Same with makeup, fake tans, fake eyelashes, fake breasts.etc.

I think tattoos look butch, not necessarily lesbian, but I find it weird when women in high heels and makeup have a lot of tats. It just makes them look like a trashy hooker or something. If you're one of these women, feel free to be offended, but don't take it personally you're free to disagree. I guess what I'm saying is, to me tatts seem incompatible with the stereotypical feminine image to me.

Put it another way, "do you think tattoos are incompatible with being feminine?"

I'm not a fan of tattoos either. Its too common. I am one of the only people I know with no ink whatsoever. My former boss, working with designer labels, one day thought she was impressing me. Took off her Anne Klein jacket to reveal her arms just covered in tattoos. I was really, really shocked at how cheap & stupid she suddenly looked.

It's like smoking. It shows how people will follow any old fad to follow the crowd.

I love tattoos on guys, especially sleeves. It depends on the woman and where she places it. Sometimes half sleeves on the forearm can look 'butchy.' But I still like them on people regardless of what others think. The artists that do them are very talented, I can appreciate artwork like that b/c I can only do stick figures on paper. Barely.

Not at all.


Well done tats... can be VERY attractive.

Poorly done ones... do the opposite.

I say this as a guy with no tats.

How many of these threads need to be started? Yes, I get it, I look like a trashy, butch and unfeminine hooker with my tattoos.

It seems like there are a lot of people who get their jollies by making others feel bad about themselves.

Besides, I'm a 6'1 tall female mechanic... If those things didn't already make me butch a few tattoos aren't going to push me over that edge

I think looking like Rosie O'Donnell or Wynonna Judd makes a woman look butch, not tattoos.

I voted Yes, but it's only most of the time.

But then, I think tattoos are just dumb in general.
