    No it isn't. Unless it's a butterfly on your lower back, then a tattoo isn't a comment on someone's sexual activity.

    Not my opinion but that's how society works fair or not the real world ain't fair.

    Thats so misogynistic nothing like that should comment peoples sexual activity but the world doesn't' work like that. By their inherent nature tattoos are seen as trashy

    It's OP's body. No-one has to 'take into account' another person's opinion on what they do with their body. No-one is saying OP's boyfriend has to stay in the relationship whatever. But NO-ONE has the right to tell another person what to do with their body. Body autonomy doesn't end when you get into a romantic and/or sexual relationship.
    I think you have a delusional view of relationships if you think physical attraction is
    irrelevant.

    No matter how much we pretend otherwise all relationships come down to a sacrifice of (some degree of) independence, if I stop brushing my teeth and my breath starts smelling is she shallow for no longer wanting to have sex with me? To say that she has a right to body autonomy is to point out the obvious, of course she does, but I have the right to leave if her choices aren't to my liking.

    I want a medium sized tattoo on my shoulder and also was thinking of getting one on my leg. My boyfriend has been begging me not to though as he says they dont look nice on women. The thing is he has a total of 9 including a big one covering his shoulder! How can someone who has tattoos themself not like them? Am i supposed to just tespect his wishes and not get any?
    Stand up for equal rights and get it tattooed on your face instead. That'll show him.

    As much as I admire your rebel attitude it won't get you very far with a decent guy, not that it isn't attractive for a short ****ing mind you

    That's rough, ok yours is a bit atypical, was going to ask why you broke up but it doesn't exactly sound like a fun story.

    oh the break up was fine, we still friends, just didn't feel it anymore. it was fine, sounds worse than it was, my parents were still together when we were together so it was easier

    my older brother got his girlfriend pregnant at 15, so could be way worse?

    If you want tattoos then get them. If your boyfriend likes you as a person (rather than based on misogynistic views of how you look) then he shouldn't be less attracted to you because you've made a personal decision about your body and he should support your choices.
    Misogynistic to not be attracted to girls with tattoos. Incredible stuff

    If that happened to me i'd tell my parents I was going to France with my friends and then cross the Spanish border and live in a remote village.

    Just get one if you want one, seems straightforward enough to me.

    If my love for someone was based on my love for their un-tattooed body then there's something wrong with me.
