    Post Are Tattoos Aesthetical? What is Your Opinion?

    Do you find that tattoos, whether it's just a little butterfly or full-blown sleeves, to be attractive or utterly skankish? If you do find them to be appealing, when does it start to become too much? Or, if you find them repulsive, tell us why.

    Post Re: Women with tattoos: Sexy or Slutty?

    Generally speaking, I think tattoos also look trashy on males but especially females. Unlike something like natural-looking makeup, a nice hairstyle, figure flattering clothes - tattoos do not enhance a woman's beauty at all, they just detract from it.

    I think that is why I see a lot of very ugly and fat girls have their bodies plastered with tattoos, multiple body piercings, and wear weird hairstyles. They figure "If I can't draw attention to myself by being attractive I might as well try and be interesting." This is also similar to the logic of obese women who wear slutty clothes.

    Tattoos are a very conventional and now boring way for people to showcase their personality and individuality without any effort on their part. When I see someone trying too hard to create a bizarre appearance, I think they are obsessed with presenting themselves in an extreme way and likely don't have much to offer as far as their personality is concerned.

    But if you mean girly girls with butterflies tattooed on their ankles - it is played out, boring and conventional. A big yawn.

    Sorry, it's me who I said no.

    I cannot say I have a very well-formed and motivated opinion on why I am against tattoos on women. Well, if you really like to know my opinion is that I find it too provocative for others or at least, if it is on "hidden" parts of th body, then I am a bit jealous on the guy who did the tattoo, especially if it would be the case for my girlfriend.

    Some feminine tattoos can add to attraction, but in general less is more.
    This is a placeholder for a signature.

    Post Re: Women with tattoos: Sexy or Slutty?

    Women look good without tattoos. It's really a fad that's outstayed it's welcome, and I really feel a bit disappointed when I see some pretty girl with a tattoo.
    It's like the statement of that tattoo is: "look at me, I'm an attention whore!", "I succumb to every fad there is!"...

    Aren't you too tough on tattooed women, Awar?

    Post Re: Women with tattoos: Sexy or Slutty?

    I said "Not - Women look good enough without drawings all over their body," because... well, first off, it's true. Secondly, I highly dislike the more common ones, such as butterflies in any place, and also ones near the lower back that show off along with their newest g-string.

    EDIT: But don't think I'm too extremist here. I just don't like how everyone my age is like, "Let's go get a tattoo! It's so cool!" but when they're presented with the idea of whether they want it anymore or not, they're just like, "Oh, i can just get it removed later!"

    Why even bother then?

    If the tatoo looks nice and size the carrier i like it. But 1 tatoo on the upper arm is normally enough. If a women have too much tatoos i think it is too manhishly.

    I have voted for 1

    Post AW: Women with tattoos: Sexy or Slutty?

    Voted three. Usually it´s either a tribal above the ass or a rose (butterfly, dolphin) on the shoulder. The big drama begins when a girl discovers her unique image is also tattooed on every third girl on the beach or in the disco. It´s like wearing the same dresses - for a lifetime.

    An ugly sight are girls who ignored the possibility of later pregnancy and got their stomaches tattooed. Stretch marks across a tattoo aren´t that pretty

    Two of my female colleagues had tattoos done on their stomach, and both got pregnant soon... after the pregnancy, the tattoo that represented two thunders turned into a tattoo of two breads.

    ( btw. makes you wonder if those tattoos improved their fertility )
