12 Reasons Why We're Attracted To Guys With Tattoos
What is it about men with tattoos that makes us weak in the knees?
Is it as simple as we think tattoos looks cool? Or maybe we subconsciously assume they’re more likely to be a top in a world overpopulated by bottoms? In this piece of hard-hitting journalism, I delve into the reason why we are attracted to tattooed men as well as why we should really consider dating tatted hunks.
1. He's brave
Sitting under a needle for any amount of time requires a certain amount of bravery, as does displaying the art on your body for the rest of your life. If he’s tatted, he’s brave, and there’s nothing that makes you feel safer.
2. He's adventurous
We don’t need anyone boring around here, and guys with tattoos definitely know how to go on some adventures. What’s next, jumping out of a plane? Underground water rafting? I’m here for the journey.
3. He’s badass
Even as tattoos become more mainstream, there's still something incredibly badass about a guy with ink. Maybe it’s the mystery. What does his tattoo actually mean? Maybe it’s something else. Whatever it is, it works.
When a guy has a tattoo, especially in a visible place, he’s opening himself up to the opinions of others. People inevitably give their thoughts on it, and some have the audacity to say some pretty awful things. People with tattoos do not care what you think. If they did, they wouldn't be getting tattoos. They do things for themselves.
Tattoos are for life. Once you get that sucker on you, there’s no turning back. The more ink he has, the more he sees his life going forward. The more he looks to the future. If a guy can commit to a tattoo for life, he’s better equipped to commit to a man.
Not all tattoos are serious. Some are downright dumb. I have a tattoo of a Wario hat on my ribcage. My best friend (and secret lover at the time) has a tattoo of a Mario hat in the same place. He and I got the tattoos in college—the day before graduation. Am I thrilled that I have this crudely-drawn, big-ass Wario hat on my ribcage? Not particularly, but I have it. I enjoy it. I can laugh about it. Guys with fun tattoos know not to take life too seriously.
More impetuous… but hey, when we want something, we want something. We want it now, and we don’t care about the consequences. Guys with tattoos live in the moment. Who doesn't want to date a guy like that?
It’s true. Guys with tattoos are beasts in the sack. They’re more passionate. More aggressive. They know what they’re doing. They’re just better. Who knows why there's a correlation between sexual prowess and tattoos, but we are definitely not complaining!
