For years tattoos were associated with criminal activity, gangs, and other unlawful heathens. However, according to the Pew Research Center, almost 4 in 10 millennials now have a tattoo. Of those 40%, almost half have more than one tattoo. While still not the norm, tattoos are now more accessible and commonplace than ever. Here’s some reasons you should definitely date a lady with tattoos at least once in your life.

  1. They’re strong, tough and don’t take any crap. Getting tattooed hurts. These ladies have sometimes withstood hours and hours of a needle dragging across their skin. They’re definitely not scared of a little heartbreak.
  2. They stand out. They know exactly what it means to be unique and they’re not scared to show it. They’re also not intimidated by what other people might say about them.
  3. They look super cool naked. Let’s face it: Tattooed skin looks rad as hell. Counting and asking about all of the hidden ones under the sheets makes for some really great pillow talk (And 70% of millennials with tattoos report that their work is hidden under their clothes).
  4. They’re not scared of commitment. Tattoos are for life. These ladies usually aren’t afraid to commit to one thing and stick to it. (Unless they’ve got a lot of cover up tattoos… then mayyybe that’s a different story.)
  5. They live life on their own terms. Who cares if some people hate tattoos? They don’t give a crap. These women want to live their life based on what they like and don’t care if people have a problem with that.
  6. They love and appreciate art in all it’s forms. If they love art enough to cover their body in it, they can usually tell you about their favorite musicians, painters, and photographers too.
  7. They’re expressive. They know exactly how to express their feelings and emotions and have conveyed some of those emotions through the art on their body. They’re confident in who they are and aren’t afraid to really show it.
  8. They’re an open book. Stories from their life can be found all over their body. It’s easy to learn more about them just by asking about their work.
  9. They’re not shallow. Tattooed and modified ladies are normally accepting of all looks and body types because they understand what it’s like to want to look different than the norm. They’re open-minded and unabashed about their life and bodies.
  10. They’ve got a little bit of a bad girl side. That can’t hurt, can it?
