Tattoos on women


If you were to ask me, when I was much  younger, what I thought of tattoos on women, I would have told you I hate them.  At the time I was brought up and in the household I was raised in, tattoos were taboo and only something you saw on men and if you saw one on a woman, it meant that she was nothing short of slutty trailer trash that slept around.

Fast forward many years and see how my opinion has changed on this… and a lot.

I like tattoos, within reason.  Some tattoos on men and women are nice.  One of two, here or there, tastefully placed, can be nice to see.   I do even enjoy looking at the stories that men’s tattoos tell about them, but I prefer to look at the tattoos that women have.

One of the examples of women I think look good, in part, with their tats is Kat Von D.  While I think many of the tattoos she has complements her, I have an issue with the ones that she has on her hands and face.  These are both parts of her body that I think, in my opinion, are lovely without the ink.  She should have left those alone.  The same with a woman’s chest, breasts are great, most of the time when I am looking at a woman’s boobs, I am not wanting to see ink around or on them.

I still recall seeing a women, not personally, that had a daisy tattooed around each nipple, so that the nipple itself was the center of the daisy.   How does someone even do that?  As a guy, my nipples are sensitive enough, I cannot even IMAGINE was it was like for her to get those tattoos, unless the pain was something that she was into.

Now, another problem I have with tattoos, and I think there are many that will share this one with me, is names, silly slogans or foul language.   I can understand if you had a loved one that passed away and you want to remember them with a little tat on your shoulder or arm to pay homage to them.  I can accept that if there was something major, like a war you served in, that you want to recall, maybe even with the names of a few buddies you lost.   But girlfriends, pictures of Roy Orbison, a picture of an rear-end with your belly button being the asshole… seriously.

I have to admit that I have no tattoos at all.  This is by choice, though I think that one day I may make the move and get one.  Something small and out of the way, that will not draw a lot of attention to myself.  Something that can be covered up.

The Duckface Phenomenon


DuckfaceAt what point in photographic history did someone look at a woman and say, “No, Baby… stick your lips out further…  No… Further…   No, Like you are trying to suck up a piece of spaghetti.   Yeah… that’s it.”

I am pretty sure that what I said above were words that were never spoken in the effort to illicit the beauty of the “Duck Face”. But we know it had to start somewhere and at some point someone must have thought it was sexy, though I cannot see how.

When I look at a woman’s lips when she does that, the only thing that goes through my mind is that I am looking at something that has a vague resemblance to an asshole and that there really is nothing remotely attractive about it.

What is your opinion of people that do this?


What do you look for in your company?


When I venture into a venue and when I am looking for someone to hook up with, or even just sit down to strike up a conversation with,  there are certain things I look for in a woman.  Things that trigger not only a “Turn-on” effect in me, but also an “you are really interesting” effect.

I am particularly picky about women.  Yes, I do like the aesthetic aspect… a good looking woman can be important, but what use is a really hot looking lady if, when you sit down and talk to them, they remind you of Fran Drescher from that silly Nanny program that was on some time ago?  Looks can be important, but I think the mind can be so much sexier.

You can sit at a table with someone you just met and like, and spend five minutes learning how irritating they can be, as in the Fran example above, or you can have several drinks with a woman that knows how to have a conversation, knows what she is talking about and then, if you decide to woo her away to your bed, and she says no… you still walk away like you have not lost anything, because the talk was worth it.

I especially like women that can talk sex.  Not the blatantly dirty stuff, anyone can do that, but the mildly suggestive discussions that are more hint and innuendo than anything else.  Mildly suggestive hints that let you know what each other likes, before you ever get to the bedroom.

But it does not have to be about sex.  I like people that can talk and be enjoyable to be around.  I typically look for people within ten years, plus or minus, of my age.  This range makes sure that there is enough in common to talk about and enough difference to make things interesting.  If the dialogue does lead to other things, then all the better, but it is certainly not the only goal I am looking for.

So what draws you to people?  What do you look for?
