Girls with Tattoos
I come from an era when pierced ears meant a girl was 'easy'. Times change. I also only lust after one woman, my wife, and that should be lust with a capital L. I don't ogle other women, fantasize about them or want to show-off for them. One phenomenon though has me agitated. I find that females with tattoos on their lower tummy or lower back draw an inordinate amount of attention from almost all males, myself included. I don't know what it is, unless it is that the tattoo is evidence that someone has left his mark on this female. My wife has been waiting to get tattoos until she is finished breast-feeding our youngest baby. That is coming up very soon. What I'm interested in finding out about is what is your feeling or reaction to tattoos in these areas or other areas, and, if you are a female with tattoos, where and why?
BTW, I have two tattoos: on my right wrist "Best before date, see bottom", and on my ass "12/04/2043" my 100th birthday.

I have a tattoo in tabitian writing on my inner thigh meaning "desire". Why my inner thigh? No idea really. I wanted it in a place that actually could be seen, but not at all times. Unfortunately, the writing looks like black swords kinda, and where it is placed, from far away could be actually viewed as pubic hair, lol. It does look cool though. Why the word desire?? Well I first was going to get a symbol of my year of birth, in which I ended up finding out that is was the year of the dog, so I was like ummmmm, no. Then I saw the form of writing, and loved the look. The tattoo artist and I went through different words like, luck, love, money, then when he said desire, I was all.....oooooooooo desire. Very mysterous, let's do desire. Do I regret it? No, it looks cool. When I get my yearly female check ups I get asked what it means......and it is a lil embarrassing, but other than that, I am satisfied with it.

I like the tattoos on the lower back. I think they actually look really cool. The ones around the belly button I don't think are really attractive at all. The lower crotchel area?? Ummmm it depends what it is.

I, myself LOVE neck tattoos. Men with writing on their neck look cool. Just my opinion. I have never been with a guy with even ONE tattoo, and I think guys with mas tattoos (good ones) and soooooooo sexy.

I have to voice my opinion on this one as I have three tattoos and every one of them I got for a different reason. The first one that I got I got because the guy that I was dating did it for me and it was something that I also did for my eldest child. The next one I got with friends and it was almost like a dare as my husband does not approve of tattoos or of piercings other then girls' ears. The third I got has my grandkids and my kids initials on it.

It to me is not a sexual thing, it is more of an expersion of ones self. It is art in its truest form and I do not think that it is right for everyone.

It is something that I think everyone should think long and hard about before getting a tattoo as it is permanent and costs lots of money to get and then if you actually do end up wanting to get it removed that is also a lot of money. Think before getting one.

This is a question for the girls, where are good spots for tattoos on men? Neck, back, crack, where?
I'm thinking of getting a large tribal cross or tribal phoneix (bird) on my back and want to know if that's sexy. The last thing I want is to end up looking like some old dead-head biker with too many tattoos.

Those lower back tattoos are so cliche. They're all the same: the chick's name, some Chinese symbol that is 'meanigful' to the chick or a butterfly/fairy.

I was reading Cosmo the other day and this dude was saying how he was a 'Butterfly Hunter' because he knows that girls with those lower back tattoos are easy.

There's a movie called Prey For Rock and Roll where two sorority girls go to a tattoo parlor and one of the girls wants an 'original' tattoo. She describes what she wants and the tattoo artist goes, "You mean you want something like this?" and pulls out a drawing of exactly the tattoo the sorority girl described. Honestly, if you are going to get a tattoo you should get something that means something to you.

Yes, you don't just go and get a tattoo because you think it's cool or that it will make you look cool. Getting a chinese symbol just because it's 'in' is disrespectful to the culture.

For those who are interested, this is an article that talks about the history of tattoos. It also metions something about women and tattoos.
quote:

By Cassandra Franklin-Barbajosa

"It's a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling," sings Jimmy Buffett of parents' dismay over their daughter's tattoo. Yet those indelible body markings are more than a trend embraced by merchant marines, bikers, and goths in basic black. Tattoos arise from a rich cultural history dating back 5,000 years.

The earliest record of tattoos, to date, was found in 1991 on the frozen remains of the Copper Age "Iceman" scientists have named Ötzi. His lower back, ankles, knees, and a foot were marked with a series of small lines, made by rubbing powdered charcoal into vertical cuts. X-rays revealed bone degeneration at the site of each tattoo, leading researchers to believe that Ötzi's people, ancestors of contemporary central and northern Europeans, may have used tattoos as medical treatment to reduce pain.

As civilizations developed, tattoos took on other meanings. Egyptian funerary figures of female dancers from around 2000 B.C. display the same abstract dot-and-dash tattoos on their bodies as those found on female mummies from that time period. Later images represent Bes, god of fertility and revelry.

Ancient Romans found no reason to celebrate tattoos, believing in the purity of the human form. Except as brands for criminals and the condemned, tattoos were banned. But over time, the Roman attitudes toward tattoos changed. Fighting an army of Britons who wore their tattoos as badges of honor, some Romans came to admire their enemies' ferocity as well as the symbols that represented it. Soon Roman soldiers were wearing their own body marks; Roman doctors even perfected the art of application and removal.

During the Crusades of the 11th and 12th centuries, warriors identified themselves with the mark of the Jerusalem cross so that they could be given a proper Christian burial if they died in battle. After the Crusades, tattooing largely disappeared in the West for a time, but continued to flourish in other places.

By the early 18th century, European sailors encountered the inhabitants of the South and Central Pacific islands. There, tattoos were an important part of the culture. When a Tahitian girl reached the age of sexual maturity, her buttocks were tattooed black, a tradition that continues among some today. When in mourning, Hawaiians tattooed their tongues with three dots. In Borneo, natives tattooed an eye on the palm of their hands as a spiritual guide that would lead them to the next life.

In 1769, Capt. James Cook landed in Tahiti, where the word "tattoo" originated from tatau, which means to tap the mark into the body. One method island practitioners used for working their designs into the skin was with a razor-edged shell attached to the end of a stick. In New Zealand, Maori leaders signed treaties by drawing precise replicas of their moko, or personal facial tattoo. Such designs are still used to identify the wearer as a member of a certain family and to symbolize a person's achievements in life.

In the 1820s, Europeans began the macabre practice of trading guns for tattooed heads of Maori warriors. To keep up with demand, Maori traders took slaves and commoners captured in battle, tattooed them, killed them, and sold their heads. The practice ended in 1831 when the British government made the importation of human heads illegal.

Tattooing has been practiced in Japan-for beautification, magic, and to mark criminals-since around the 5th century B.C. Repressive laws gave rise to the exquisite Japanese designs known today. Restricted from wearing the ornate kimonos that adorned royalty and the elite, outraged merchants and the lower classes rebelled by wearing tattooed body suits. Covering their torsos with illustrations that began at the neck and extended to the elbow and above the knee, wearers hid the intricate designs beneath their clothing. Viewing the practice as subversive, the government outlawed tattoos in 1870 as it entered a new era of international relationships. As a result, tattooists went underground, where the art flourished as an expression of the wearer's inner longings and impulses.

The yakuza, the Japanese gangster class, embraced the body suits-even more so because they were illegal. Their elaborate designs usually represented an unresolved conflict and also included symbols of character traits the wearer wanted to emulate. A carp represented strength and perseverance. A lion stood for courage. Such tattoos required long periods of pain from the artist's bundles of needles, endured by wearers as a show of allegiance to their beliefs. Today, Japanese tattoo wearers are devoted to the most colorful, complete, and exotic expression of the art.

New York inventor Samuel O'Reilly patented the first electric tattoo machine in 1891, making traditional tools a thing of the past in the West. By the end of the 1920s, American circuses employed more than 300 people with full-body tattoos who could earn an unprecedented $200 per week.

For the next 50 years, tattoos gained a reputation as a mark of American fringe cultures, sailors, and World War II veterans. But today, tattoo connoisseurs take the spotlight at international fairs and conventions with Japanese body suits, Celtic symbols, black tribal motifs, and portraits of favorite celebrities.

"Tattooing is enjoying a big renaissance around the world," says Chuck Eldridge of the Tattoo Archive in Berkeley, California. "Native American women in the Northwest are wearing chin tattoos again, reviving a cultural practice from centuries before the white man arrived. And, in answer to health concerns, artists in the South Pacific are slowly changing to modern equipment."

"The melting pot that is the United States has no rites of passage as a single American culture," says Ken Brown, a tattoo artist in Fredericksburg, Virginia, who finds inspiration in National Geographic photographs (see "My Seven" ). "On some levels, getting a tattoo is like a milestone that marks a certain moment in a person's life." Ken still remembers one customer, an 80-year-old former marine who had always wanted a tattoo but had been too afraid to get one. "He came to me for his first tattoo," Ken says, "and he told me, 'I figure I got five or six good years left in me, and I'm not going out without one.' "

I don't like tattoos on girls in private places, or peircings, if I see them all I can think about it some nasty dude all over it for however long, and tattoo & peircing shops have pictures of cooters and what not all peirced and inked, and I guess I would rather not date those girls. Exhibitionists (except in private) aren't for me, some of which is directly due to serious personal issues of my own of course.

Otherwise, I'm just not into tattoos and peircings in general, I find female skin far more attractive.

Though, one guy I used to see a lot around town had a bald head and a tattoo of chain-mail on his head, that looked pretty cool.

The school nurse informed us that if you have a tattoo on the the injection site for an epidural which is located on your lower part of your back, they will most likely not administer you the epidural for health reasons. She said that some hospitals are refusing to do it and they're thinking of making it a law. So girls should think twice before making the decision of getting a tattoo on the lower part of their backs.
