Most guys don’t care that much about tattoos as long as they aren’t overdone.
When you are completely covered in tattoos, this is a deal breaker for a good number of men.
However, if you have several or a few tattoos that are strategically placed, you shouldn’t have a problem with most guys.
The more open the guy is in general as a person, the less likely he looks at your tattoos as a deal breaker.
This is a generational and cultural issue.
The older he is, the greater the likelihood he looks at your tattoos as a deal breaker.
The same applies when he is culturally conservative.
So, it all depends on who you choose to date.
If you choose to date a highly conservative guy and you have several tattoos, he looks at that as a deal breaker.
He doesn’t like that.
Additionally, it’s a deal breaker when your tattoos are in exposed areas of your body and large in size.
Culturally conservative guys have a set notion in mind for the kind of woman they expect to date.
They often seek a woman who is just like them in their belief system, way of living and physical appearance.
This culturally conservative guy doesn’t customarily have tattoos.
He looks for the same in a partner.
A culturally conservative guy is worried about his reputation with members of his family and community.
He comes from a culturally conservative family and lives in a culturally conservative community.
He worries about what these individuals in his family or community would say if he were to date a girl who has several tattoos.
He is fine with one or two that are well-hidden.
This way, he doesn’t have to contend with a number of exposed tattoos when he is with the girl and his family or in the community.
With several exposed tattoos, he knows his family and community are going to ask difficult questions and he doesn’t want this.
The generational issue occurs when you are contending with guys who are many years older than you.
If you tend to date older guys, some will have an issue with tattoos when they are too many.
This older age group doesn’t look at a tattoo or two as a deal breaker, in light of having teenagers or young adult children of their own who have tattoos.
Nevertheless, too many tattoos present a deal breaker.
Your best bet, whether you have a few tattoos or a whole bunch, is to focus on guys who are open and eclectic in who they date.
His lifestyle gives it away.
Where he socializes and who he socializes with, gives you an idea of whether he is open to tattoos.
Even better, when the guy has tattoos as well, he has a propensity to look at your tattoos as more of a bonding experience than a deal breaker.
