Tattoos: Turn On or Turn Off

PadoruLover PadoruLover
For me a guy with a tattoo turns me on (as long as its not tacky or down right ugly). I rarely even look at a guy that doesn't have one. What do you guys think Yay or Nay?

They use to be turn offs for me but I am growing to appreciate some. It truly depends on the tattoo, location and size.

I like tattoos in general, but whether or not a person has them doesn't matter to me in the end. I'm more a fan of them for the art than anything else.

too many tattoos, stupid ones, ugly & vulgar ones all are a huge turn off.

I'm proud to say I do not have any ink. My wife would prefer I do not.

It depends on the tattoo! This questions makes me chuckle because I used to think I would never date a tattooed, bearded, hairy guy-- and guess who makes me happy?

Depends on the tattoo and the person who is wearing it -- some people, including myself, just don't look good with tattoos.

I like tattoos. Have a couple, discrete ones, myself. But tattoos themselves aren't really a determining factor in whether or not I'm with a person.

The wife and I are a bit over tattoo age. Not to say that many older people don't get them - lets just say 50-something skin is starting to sag - and tattoos just don't look good.

Some for the younger set to think about - will you still love that tattoo when your married? Are you OK with explaining what it means to your children?

How's it going to look after 20-30 years?

I know people 'live for today'...

But as Mickie Mantle once famously said "If I had known I would live this long - I would have taken better care of myself!"

So be prudent - and take care!

I will have no problem explaining the meaning to any children I might have. And eh, I know it'll start to look bad after like 30+ years and I'm okay with that. The art will age with me like any good companion.

I don't understand how you could look at an incredible tattoo and NOT love it even if you aren't a tattoo person. Now they don't generally turn me on. But a curve flattering tattoo on a girl with a beautiful body... Oh, man.

I've always loved them and I'm pretty open to tattoos anywhere really. I can handle a face tattoo if it's small and by the hairline or something. I work for a company that allows tattoos anywhere on the body as long as it's not vulgar. Pretty awesome.

I think tattoos are super sexy, but my partner would never consider one as far as I know. I'd even love if he got a got a tattoo he could hide easily like on his chest.

Neither of us has any, wants any, or finds them "attractive". In fact, we don't get the concept of permanently marking one's self in ways that often lead to regret later. I know this happens, since our daughter (who is of "tat" age...but has none), is making a great living with a big part of it being removing those "regret" tattoos. Another little fact, removing them costs about the same as getting them....only with a couple more zero's added to the price tag!!!

It seems that people work so hard not to be "labeled" and then they label themselves that way?

We try to be accepting and open minded enough not "judge" anyone, but when we meet someone all tatted up, who turns out to be a really nice person, we cannot help but wonder (and we speak about it later) "what were they thinking", or "why did they do that"??? Again, it may be generational, but we just will never "get it".

I love tattoos, I have seven so far and getting my next one this month. Ever since I was exposed to people with tattoos I have always found them attractive, on either sex. I have developed many crushes on guys covered with them same with females. My husband has two on his forearms. I would love if he got more but that wont happen.

Mostly I find tattoos hot, but when guys have really gross sexist ones like a half-naked lady with her boobs hanging out? No way.

I think non-offensive tattoos can be a great way to get to know someone as well as being super hot.

I agree. I know they will age but so does the whole body so its not like it will be that big a deal.

Agreed, and I think I am roughly in the same generation as you, and I don't get it either. HOWEVER, if a person has a small, kinda discrete "nice" one, I am learning to say that's okay. (I have to. My daughter has two small ones. Sigh...)

Our daughter is about the only person in her "group" of friends without one! Her and her husband simply don't like them. Again, she makes money removing them, so she see's the regret part all day long. It's okay, however, since all those tat's are helping pay for a nice trip to Australia they are taking this summer!

Please explain, if you can, what part of them turns you on so? For those of us who don't get it, I am just plain curious.

I will state this, there are some TERRIBLE tattoos out there, but its like any art, some is good, some is bad. Some don't always turn out the way you want them to turn out, and that will suck quite a bit.

Then there are the ones that are just so phenomenally good that it's hard not to "ooh" and "aah" over them quite a bit.

I lived with a tattoo artist and I have seen both the good and bad of his own work, or the good and bad on his clients from other artists.

Also, any tattoo artist who works on a person who is on drugs or alcohol is breaking the law in many states as people are supposed to sign a waiver stating that they are sober in all capacities. An artist who works on on intoxicated person are probably the ones who give the "regret" tattoos as that seems to be when most people get them. Not to mention, the cardinal rule of tattoos are to never get a lover's name tattooed on you.

I love tattoos on my partners. I find ink to be very sexy.

Hubby and I are both ink free. Neither of us have ever had any reason or desire to get one, so no tattoos here.

I have no real problem with people with tattoos. I merely ask that they not be placed on the face or head and that they have meaning to the person the tattoo is on.

I've been considering getting some watercolor art inked on my leg or somewhere else... but my wife is against it, so looks like it won't happen.

For me it largely depends on the tattoo and the placement, but if those are both okay, it's a definite turn on. =3

Bonus points if it's a well done but still deliciously "nerdy" tattoo like a Lord of the Rings one. Even better if it's elvish.
