The trend today seems to be to tattoo or pierce just about every part of the human body. And although I have dated women in the past with tattoos, it was never a lasting relationship so I didn't have to put much thought into that future. As I get older though, my relationships are more goal oriented and I find myself being a lot more selective. I personally would never get a tat. I think they are great for others, but the idea of having one on myself just doesn't seem to work. For me it is a self respect issue. I respect my body too much to want to draw or punch holes in it.
My question is this, once I start dating again, should I consider women who have tats as off limits? and what about piercings? I have dated girls with everything from tongue rings to nipples to belly rings. The belly ring I still find very attractive but the rumors about the others are just that rumors. I found them no more enjoyable than sans rings.
What are your opinions? date tats? don't date tats? date piercings? don't date piercing?
