Do Tattoos Make You Look Easy?by Chiara Atik on May 26, 2011
Yesterday, Emily over at XOJane.com wrote about how her tattoos seem to make guys think she’s easy.
“A tattooed arm, to a lot of people, yells daddy issues, kinky sex and low self-esteem, broadcasts so much more than the pretty daisies and bumblebee I picked out,” she writes.
Emily’s personal anecdotes seem to corroborate OK Cupid’s findings from January, that girls with tattoos or piercings get way more attention/messages from men. It’s true that a woman with a tattoo usually doesn’t come off as prim. But does a tattoo send off slutty vibes?
Of course, it’s possible that tattoos just give people an excuse to talk to you: “Cool tattoo” is a pretty easy way to break the ice with someone with whom you’ve never spoken before. It makes sense, therefore, that tattooed women would be approached more.
Still, it’s a pretty interesting question, so we’re throwing it out to you guys: have you noticed any sort of bias or stigma towards tattooed girls? Do tattoos make you look easy? Let us know in the comments!
