I personally do not find tattoos on either men or women very appealing. I will not comment on what it me makes me think of them. Of course tattoos, if done tastefully and in the right place can be sexy but only if they are in the right place for the image created. And they should never be in plain site with clothes on. I went through the Navy in my early 20's and had plenty of opportunities to get tattoos. Even then I could not imagine why I would want anything on my body that I would have to live with for the rest of my life. At that time it was not possible to have them removed. Again it's just my take on it and I have never ever regretted it. I have known some who have as they got older...very much so. I really do not find them attractive on women. Just my take on it but if they have too many it makes them look much less attractive. I am sure you will find other men that feel differently.

Hi,What about Angelina Jolie?She has tons of tattoos and yet she's still gorgeous. And I thought it was ritual for a guy in the navy to have tattoo,guess I'm wrong.

You are very right Angelina Jolie is very beautiful and her tattoo's do not lessen that because they are not a part of her persona. How many movies have you seen her in that show her tattoo's? Not many and if they do show it is part of the caricature. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What one man finds stunning in a woman another will find ordinary or maybe even plain. That works the same for woman as you well know. And aren't we all so fortunate that it works that way. You are right about the Navy and that is why I brought it up. Most sailors get a tattoo when they are drunk and/or trying to impress someone. I knew one man that was what is referred to as a lifer. He would be there until he retires. He also loved to drink. With the exception of part of his face there was very little of his body that did not have a tattoo of some kind. It did not look good let me tell you. I am not sure how much influence that had on me but it could have been quite a bit. While I would not want one that does not mean that I think they are bad. There are some women that have one on their lower back as an example and if done tastefully is sexy. But there is a point where you can go overboard and they no longer are. It's all a matter of taste.

well, I'm a female, but I prefer guys without tattoos, most guys who have one usually doesn't look clean to me, and plus it fades as time goes by, so it's not that good looking at the later date, but if you really want to have one, it is up to you, I hope you will be happy whatever decision you make, because tattoo will be stuck with you permanently :D have a nice day !
