    Does a tattoo make a man look more tough? I think it makes a woman look sexy. What makes some tattoos nice and some ugly?

  • Personally I do think that tattoos make a man look a bit more rough, depending on what it is. I mean if its a heart with wings that says 'mama' it doesn't really add to a bad boy image haha.
    In my opinion ugly tattoos are the ones that are not well done.
    You're called a tattoo artist for a reason, tatoing is an art.
    Blotchy lines, uneven lines, colors that don't match all add to the 'hmm, no..not that nice'


    • agreed Aubrey!!!

      I love tattoos...and if they are nicely done...its amazing!
      The children almost broken by the world become the adults most likely to change it


      • I don't like tattoos. Call me old-fashioned.


        • I love them, hubby hates them. I have one and it means a lot to me.

          However, I will admit, I'm a little mixed. I think they look great on guys, on women, eh, it really has to be one that appeals to me.

                  • HAHA - I know! Apologies are given too often here because we are all ornery. But I had to give back! I got one from OTYA today that made my day!


                    • I very secretly have a thing for 'edgy things' on pretty girls but to a moderation, not more than three facial piercings with studs that are too obvious etc.

                      One of my favorite pictures of said subject is a picture of a girl in a dress with a few facial piercings, a chestpiece, and i think two large tattoos on her arms.
                      She quite obviously has dyed hair but a really cute baby face.
                      I don't know, I think it evens eachother out and it stays beautiful.

                      I dont mean to imply that people that don't appeal to me shouldnt get piercings or tattoos though.
                      It's just my take on it

                        Personally, I think a man in a double-breasted suit or a Marines uniform is super ridiculous sexy. As for a woman with a tatoo, I think it's sexy depending on where the tat is and as long as it isn't on a big roll of flabby skin that looks like ground turkey like my cousin. Ahem, that my friends is nas-teee on every level.
                        Since my mother recently passed away, I'm thinking of getting one with the nick-name I called her "Lou-Lou" with a rose a rose intertwined in the text and a, well, I don't want to give away my memorial design for this ink or I'll be so angry if someone across the country goes and get's the same tat.


                        • I think tattoos on men are pretty sexy, but only if well-placed and in good taste. I love the one my man has on his shoulder and it's just a simple tribal art. I like them on women too, but am more picky than with men on where and what. I have a small one on my shoulder blade that I love, 2 Japanese kanji.


                          • i like men that have tats. to me it makes the "bad boy" image a little edgier. but i prefer tastefully placed and tribals. piercings are cool too.

                            but i plan on getting tats and piercings, its all personal preference.


                            • Personally,I love both tattoos and piercings.But I also am not too fond of too many of each.It gives the guys,that 'Bad Boy' image,wich I tend too fall for that type.maybe a few tattoos,or a few piercings,just not full sleeves or a full face or studs.

                              I like peircings on myself,but I know when enough is enough.Really its all just personal reference.Not everyone will agree,but that's just my opinion.
