It doesn’t matter how white a man’s teeth are or how toned his abs are. If he gets a new tattoo, then he’ll instantly look ten times better. This is why men with ink are so damn sexy:

  1. He’s willing to make a commitment. Tattoos are permanent. If he gets a new design on his skin, it’s going to be there for the rest of his life. That means he isn’t scared to commit himself to something, unlike most men out there.
  2. It makes looking at him naked much more fun. Everyone has minor differences that make them unique, but arms and legs and penis pretty much always look the same. Unless, of course, they’re covered in sexy little designs. When a man has ink, seeing him naked is a lot more exciting, because you never know exactly what you’re going to get.
  3. He actually gives a damn about something. Meaningful tattoos are the sexiest kind of tattoos. If a man has a design that honors his mother or father or childhood pet, it proves he has a big heart.
  4. He can pull off any look. Unless he has a spiderweb tattoo creeping up his neck, then all he has to do is put on a long-sleeved shirt and a pair of slacks in order to look like a gentleman. If you take him to a wedding or a fancy cocktail party, he’ll be able to clean up nicely. He can rock that rocker look or the classic look.
  5. He doesn’t care what others think. Even though it’s 2016, there are still plenty of people out there who think tattoos are the devil’s handiwork. But he doesn’t give a damn about people who judge him. He does what he wants, when he wants, without worrying about how the world sees him.
  6. He has a bad boy side. We all want to date a boy who’s a sweetheart, but is also a little bit of a badass. If he rides a motorcycle or has a few tattoos, then we’re not going to mind. In fact, we’ll encourage the bad boy behavior.
  7. He’s open-minded. He doesn’t want the world to think of him as an unemployed scumbag, just because he has a few tattoos. That means he isn’t going to judge anyone else for what they look like. He’ll get to know them before he makes snap judgments about them.
  8. He knows how to express himself. Tattoos are a form of artist expression. That means he’s creative and he’s in touch with his feelings. Those are two qualities that are incredibly sexy.
  9. He goes after what he wants. There are a lot of people out there who talk about wanting a tattoo, but never actually go for it. But if he’s covered in ink, it means he knows what he wants and goes after it. He doesn’t sit around talking about things when he could be doing them.
  10. He won’t mind your tattoos. You won’t have to worry about what he thinks about your tattoos and piercings, because he’s going to love them. You’ll look like the most badass couple around.
