Ok i am a 24 year old woman and i have alot of tattoos so i think they r very sexy on women, alot of mine have a story or a meaning. To the person that referred to them as scars, maybe a scar that we r proud to wear, nothing like a stretched marked belly after having a baby that women cry over. I even thought about turning mine into pink and black zebra stripes, to make ugly scars beautiful ART! ;)
I really do not like tattoos. when I was young, I thought they were "cool," but as I got older I began disliking them. When I saw my first tattooed lady, I thought it was bizarr and not attractive at all. Kind of like we all hate car wrecks, but we still look at them. I work with models, both clothed and nude, and I do not hire any with tattoos. It is true I do not have to paint the tattoo, but it is very distracting and tends to hide or oblitherate shadows, high lights and the beautiful subtle color changes in natural skin. It is a really bad fad that I wish would go away. Cosmetic surgeons who do tattoo removal are going to be making a ton of money in the future as these people realize their mistakes, in my humble opinion.
I'm with you, dude. I really like a little butterfly on the shoulder, or something like that, but sleeves on anybody is less than attractive.. in my opinion. Too much is too much.
I'm a lady and i've always wanted tattoos since i was 18(got my first one when i was now 22), i thought long and hard about my first one, now i have had 5 tattoos(my only tattoos) on my upper arm done by 4 completely separate artists with similar styles - my sleeve is girly traditional and includes perfume bottle, pink rose, Quill(feather pen), heart locket and butterfly. <br />
Yes i agree tattoos have become a fashion statement in recent years, mainly thanks to David Beckham, Rihanna and Tulisa. So i do believe there are those who get tattoos for a reason, those who want to add a style to themselves(trend followers) and those who get tattoos to show off the talent that is out there in the tattoo industry(which is me)<br />
I have always loved guys with tattoos(i hate face tattoos) but sleeves, neck, hands and upper torso i find gorgeous and sexy(personal preference though).<br />
In the past 50 years tattoo inks have been made better, the process in which we have tattoos done(hygiene) has become a lot better, and tattooing has been recognised as "body art" on "a body canvas".<br />
I love all my tattoos and i've had nothing but positive comments about them, even from random people. I praise all of the artists i have met for their time, effort and input. I am planning on getting more (thighs, feet, nape). I think tasteful chest pieces can look nice but i'll never venture that way as i like my chest/clevage area bare :)<br />
The thing is the more acceptable tattoos become the more popular they will become. I see a lot of newer tattoo artists appreciating the work done 50/60 years ago and older men still loving their ink from their younger years.<br />
A lot of people think about when they are old and grey, and i think if i ever live to see that age, i'll worry about it then, as for now i'm enjoying the experience that comes with getting a piece of art on my skin.<br />
I always bare in mind those who don't like tattoos however i wish i could open their eyes to the beautiful work that has been done, even my mum likes my tattoos and she's a respectful person, she loves my pink rose the most :)<br />
I hate seeing those with religious/tribal/very badly done tattoos, it makes me angry because there is such beautiful art work out there being done, that people chose these trends instead. I judge people on their level of creativity when choosing tattoos, saying "i'll have that" off flash art isn't your own idea. I thought about all my sleeve tattoos, position, design, colours.<br />
I also see it as a future investment as i imagine using my skin as a colour board for my kids to learn from and designs they can learn from i.e "what colour is this? what is this?" my tattoo sleeve colours are black ofc, plastel colours, pinks, greens, blues, yellows, purples, oranges and red.<br />
Thank you for reading my comment!
I think there great... the more heavily tattooed the better
Tattoos are gorgeous on women, especially large, traditionally male pieces like sleeves or chestpieces. I'm a woman who likes women, and I both want them for myself and find them sexually attractive on other women.
Yeah its really hot. But I wouldn't marry one. What will they look like when they age and the skin gets saggy....and that fierce dragon looks like a melted glob of goo. Yuk.
i have to agree with you, sleeves and chest tattoos are kinda masculine
what do you call a tattoo'd prostitu te?... a scenic route ;)
I have tattoos. I have a large on on the front/side of my thigh and tomorrow I'm getting my ankle done. I love tattoos but I have to agree with you. I think each to ones own. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But... I do think some tattoos are more masculine. When I get married I dont want tattoos visible when I'm wearing my wedding dress. I think it will ruin it. Needless to say its personal choice. I dont mind what people do if they are happy with their body and aren't hurting anyone.
When i look at a woman I see everything about her. Her eyes the color an shape of her lips her curves and soft smooth skin. A beautiful flower. Gets my heary pumping. But a woman with alot of tats just took something as beautiful an elegant an changed it. To me simple is beautiful. Like taking a picture of sunset in the open clear water an putting a oil rig in it. Still a beautiful sunset. But nothing compared to the natural untouched beauty.
Umm, Depends what it is.. sometimes it looks great but some get it done to the point it looks bad... sometimes less is more , But i dont mind the yakuza type body tatts that are colorful and usually go all across the back and more... I also dont mind the half body ones like a climbing dragon
