One of the most consistent qualities men look for in a woman is confidence. We realize that it takes a certain amount of confidence to walk through our doors and ask to get inked with something, with anything! As a matter of fact, a 2011 study found that after getting a tattoo, both men and women, experienced “significantly lower appearance anxiety … and significantly higher body appreciation, distinctive appearance investment, self-ascribed uniqueness, and self-esteem.”
We don’t need to school you on the many reasons you would want to date a woman with confidence, you know it makes for a healthier relationship. And hey, if it’s something you’re lacking, maybe you can take some pointers from your awesome tattooed girlfriend!
She Plays by Her Own Rules
A woman who gets inked is a woman who doesn’t need to fit in all the time. It is true that more and more women are getting tattooed, some 47 percent of women under 35 are tattooed now. But that doesn’t mean society is all on board or anything. There are still many corners of the world and groups of people that have strong opinions against tattoos. That’s fine. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, of course. Our point is, a woman who gets tattooed knows this, and doesn’t care. She doesn’t need to run with pack, and is fine being an individual. She is one of a kind.
She is a Risk Taker
The amount of risks she is willing to take and the level of said risk, varies from woman to woman. However, if a woman has tattoos it’s a sure sign she isn’t afraid of risks. She will most likely be of the adventurous mind and spirit.
She’s a Walking Conversation Starter
Let’s face it, tattoos are great conversation pieces. That is, if they want to talk about it. Tattoos can be such good conversation starters that the 50th stranger to ask about your tattoo in a day could get annoying. However, if she is on a date with you she probably won’t mind sharing her stories with you. Tattoos can be a great way to get to know someone, as they can tell the stories of someone’s life.
She Doesn’t Believe in Regret
If she has a tattoo she obviously didn’t worry she would regret one day to the point where she didn’t get it. When you get a tattoo, you might say to yourself, “I might regret this one day.” But the fact is, we do it anyway. Because regret simply isn’t something that concerns us a great deal, or something that affects us to a strong degree. Besides, you should never regret expressing yourself. As Edith Piaf would say: “Non, je ne regrette rien,” and that goes for all areas in our life, not just our tattoos.
She is Set in Her Beliefs
Women who get tattooed have no problems asserting their convictions and they aren’t afraid to express them or stand by them. They believe what they believe and they are confidant in that. Take it or leave it, buddy!
She Doesn’t Shy Away from Pain
Now hold on there! By no means are we saying tattooed girls all want to be locked up in a room of pain. All we are saying is that she knows pain is temporary, and she can handle it. Which might mean that when you break her heart she, she won’t hang around groveling for you because she knows she can recover.
