Let’s face the facts. If you’re a man, the only way your tattoos are going to be sexually appealing is if they are on a body that is lean and muscular. A few tribal design tattoos on a muscular guy will definitely grab the attention of the ladies.
If you are a fat guy and you’re expecting the arm band tattoo on your flabby bicep to impress women, you’re going to be disappointed.
The same can be applied to women as well. A tattoo is only as sexy as the person it is on. The best thing you can do for yourself is to maintain a healthy and fit image.
It may be argued that we shouldn’t judge people based on how fit or thin they are. While this may be true, it doesn’t change the fact that the majority of people find men with muscles sexy and a woman who is slim but has curves in all the right places hot. That’s just the way it is. You can blame the media or people’s shallow thinking. Whatever the case may be, this is the way things stand at the moment.
This is not to say that you shouldn’t get a sexy tattoo unless you have the “perfect” body, it’s just to say that you shouldn’t be disappointed if your sexy tattoo doesn’t have the men or women beating a path to your door. If you’re ok with that, then you do you and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks.
Getting Your Sensual Tattoo
For a tattoo to be sexy, firstly, it has to be well done. Get your tattoos done by a professional tattooist and not some amateur working out of his parents’ basement.
Secondly, the location of the tattoo matters greatly. A tribal band or a barbed wire design looks best on a bulging bicep. Tattooing such a design around your forehead may have people making Jesus jokes about you.
Many women tattoo designs on their lower back. For a while these were deemed hot or cool by society. Then these tattoos slowly developed a bad reputation and started being called “tramp stamps”. Why this changed is anyone’s guess.
So, how do you know that a sexy tattoo will remain sexy and not become a sign of loose character and morals?
For Your Eyes Only
For starters, the most sexy tattoos are the ones that are in the most intimate places. The kind only a lover would get to see if you’re naked. One woman I know of has a tattoo of a stick man pushing a lawnmower just at the edge of her pubic bone. It’s as if her pubic hair is being mowed. (That tattoo is also somewhat popular on top of balding heads.) Another friend has a cute devil with a halo and wings, in the same place. This can be sexy and playfully naughty at the same time.
There are thousands of such tattoos that can make you look sensual and in almost all cases, they are best on women and hidden just below the panty line.
Sexy tattoos will accentuate your features or draw attention to the parts of your body that are sexually appealing. A tattoo of a rose or angel just above a woman’s breast is going to draw eyes to her chest. Similarly, the lower back tattoo draws attention to the natural curve of a woman’s back and her buttocks.
A sensual tattoo that is gaining popularity is the “underboob” tattoo. While that’s a less than sensual name, there are some beautiful tats of this type.
This might be a somewhat painful area to have tattooed, but the results are well worth it.
Whatever the case may be, always pick a tattoo that you like and feel comfortable with. Don’t choose one just because someone else told you it’s sexy. Don’t decide to get a tattoo just because everyone else is getting one. Some of the sexiest actresses and Playboy bunnies do not have a single tattoo. Choose to do a sensual tattoo only if you feel that it will make you look or feel sexy.
