    this is for both sexes :)

    what are your thoughts on tattoos? are they a turn on or ugly distractions?

    I like small tattoos my wife has a smiling moon and clouds on her lower back. I love to look at it. But if she had more I would feel it would detract from her own beauty. I wouldn't object though to something else placed privately like on her boob or hip. Again I like them small as an accent rather than a covering.

    i guess i should answer my own question!

    i used to find tattoos very unattractive on both genders, huge turn off...then i met a guy with tattoos all over his arms, his back, and his leg. i didnt like them at first, but the more i grew to like him, the more his tattoos started to turn me on. so much so that a lot of guys who i had considered unattractive because of their tattoos were beginning to give me a girl boner (i gotta stop using that term yall). long story short, i love them now.

    on girls it's a different story. it's all in the placement and size. i have considered getting a small one but it would probably be something i'd regret when i'm 40 (or the next day), like hello kitty or bows...or both.

    ironically my story isn't all that much different than yours. initially I held poor opinionregarding people and their tattoos. but once I decided to do a cover up on a small shoulder tattoo, I grew to really appreciate others artwork. the more research I didand artwork I saw,the more appreciative I became.
    now that I have been into it4 a while I now appreciate them all the moreon women.
    weird I know, but I actually find little tattoos somewhat unattractive. a larger piece that's beautiful can be amazing.

    Can't stand them. Would never even consider getting one and if I was single, wouldn't date a women with tats. Maybe it was my upbringing, tattoos were for trash, prisoners, and sailors....I guess it stuck. Got friends with them, but I still have a negative image of them. And you might think they look cool when you're young, but when your 50 or 60 and they're sliding off your shoulder or streched out from weight gain or sagging body parts...absolutely nothing sexy about that.

    depends on what it is. big large arm length tattoos are ridiculous. little ones on the shoulder or back or arm, not a problem

    I have one, and they are very addicting! The only thing keeping me from getting more is money. I think it tells a lot about a person by what sort of tattoos they have.

    I prefer women i date to be without, but one with a lot of meaning behind it wouldn't bother me.

    it depends on the tattoo's, if they have a meaning behind them then that's cool but if they have them just to have them then that's just ridiculous

    Neither.

    I used to be somewhat against them one of my exes, but she ended up getting one anyway and it wasn't terrible. I think part of the problem was that most of the examples she used were girls who were heavily tattooed.

    I think in the end it depends on the tattoos, if they are tasteful and/or have meaning, etc. A girl with a shitload of pointless tattoos is just going to turn me off.

    Small, discreet ones I don't mind. Bunnie has discussed getting a small one on her ankle, something cute that doesn't call attention to itself. For me the only things I want sticking my skin are needles to donate blood, or to draw blood to determine my health. :)

    Large, showy ones are not my thing. Those may look cool in one's youth, but it seems many older folks regret getting big showy ones when they were young.
