Why almost all female porn stars have tattoos?

CS2012 CS2012
I was just wondering if anyone knows why almost all female porn stars have tattoos. I watch a lot of porn and 90% of the women have at least one tattoo. Any idea why?

I don't know the official reason, but my theory is that it has to do with more and more people getting tattoos in general. My mom told me about one of the meetings she had to attend at her last job and they were talking about covering tattoos in the work place and 90% of the people in the room had a tattoo that they had covered.

I have a tattoo, but im not a pornstar, i think its all what they want or they could be fake just to be a fashion statement in the video.

I would agree that it has to do with more people having tattoos. I have 2 and I HOPE to get two more IF we get a tax return. (I have student loans to pay )

I think it is because tattoos are still considered by some to be a lil rebellious and what is more rebellious than to be a porn star so obviously they would be drawn to getting them lol

I wondered about that, too. When I used to strip, many of the women I worked with had tattoos. I always attributed this to age (most of the women at my club were 18-25) and lots of discretionary income. I know they're not the same, stripping and porn, but they overlap a lot.

It can also be like a calling card for some. If I'm not familiar with a performer, I will often be able to recognize her (or him) in the future by her tattoo(s). Hair cuts, hair colors, costumes and characters change. Some people look completely different after a few years. The tats stay the same.

1) I think the personality traits that would lead one to a career in porn would correlate highly with those that would lead one to get a tattoo.

2) The rate compared to the general public is going to seem higher then it is because a) you are seeing a porn star completely naked, unlike your co-worker, usually. b) their is no reason to cover up tattoos on a porn set like you would in a typical work place.

In other words all other things being equal I don't think that porn stars get tattoos at a much higher rate then a comparable group (same worldview, personality traits, income etc.) of non-porn people.

Tattoos are identifying. I have a back piece that is unique to me, so if I'm doing anything I don't want to be identified in, I try to hide my tattoo. So it can be both good and bad. If one's wanting to stand out, a unique tattoo is quite a good ay to do it.

I work on a college campus, and I'd say that well over 50% of female students have tattoos. Four or five years ago, it was at least 65% of them. Tattoos on women have been extremely popular in the past ten years, although I think the popularity of them has dropped off just slightly recently, but nearly all porn stars are of the age group in which tattoos are almost de rigueur, at least here in California.

I agree. I have 2 as well, one on the small of my back that I've never seen on anyone else. I have a white tiger on my right thigh, and it's not overly original, but I haven't seen anyone else have one like it personally.

I think that most porn stars have one or 2 before becoming a regular. It's the lifestyle they grew up in, rebellion, or the need to have some sort of "mark" of their own I think.

Because if they didnt have tattoos the "legit" side of modeling would want them.

Most people like the idea of a tattoo even if they don't have one. Plus, if they're don't right (portraits aside) they really are attractive or sexy.

They are normal people just like us. A lot of all people have tattoos. I think they rock.

I think it's becoming more widely accepted to have tattoos and not be a "bad person". Back in my grandfathers day tattoos were a sign of criminals/low life type of people. Now it's just a pretty way to decorate your body.
