Dating tatooed women

In the United States, the figure is about 23 percent.

(See this Harris Interactive survey for a fascinating breakdown of who gets tattoos in the United States).

The few studies that have focused on men's perceptions of tattooed women have found that these women are seen in a generally light.

They were instructed to spread beach towels, lie prone, read a book, and not initiate contact with men.It's no secret that when it comes to the mating game—whether it be for a liaison or a lifetime—men tend to place a higher premium on beauty than women do.Ample research shows that men are sensitive to a range of physical cues in women, such as a low waist-to-hip ratio, larger breasts, effective cosmetics use, revealing clothing, and wearing the color red (which signals sexual receptivity).And compared to other physical cues, Guéguen notes, research on men's responsiveness to tattooed women has received remarkably scant attention.In France, where Guéguen is based, about 12 percent of women sport a tattoo.
