    Hey its all about personal taste in the end, it always is.
    I think the times when the 'addition' of a piercing or tattoo would gain 100% approval/disapproval either way is virtually zero.

    If the person thinks they look better, that is all that matters. They should be aware and able to accept that it may change how some react to them but as long as they are cool with that its all gravy

    Depends completely on the person with the tattoo and the tastes of the person meeting them..


    Personally I cant say I would ever think a girl prettier with a lip ring or large coverage of tattoo, but I think a tasteful and elegant tattoo is very possible and I know classy girls with tongue piercings. This is all just personal taste and I wouldnt wish to influence or stereotype anyone anyway. I have not met everyone in the world.. :yep:

    Theres only generally one reply to if tattoos and piercings are nice on TSR and thats no because most people on here are pretty anal and all the same. I wouldnt care if a girl had tattoos or piercings its her body.

    I have tattoos but I don't think that makes me "trashy" or "slutty"

    Well you don't look trashy or slutty but then again we can't see your tattoos either http://static.thestudentroom.co.uk/i...lies/ninja.gif

    a girl with a tounge piercing or tattoo is trashy or slutty
    This is almost my view. There will be some that are not trashy or slutty, but they still have bad taste in my opinion, so would not be girlfriend material for me for that reason. Some people don't mind tattoos or unusual piercings, but I do. I know that I am unlikely to get on with someone with widely different aesthetic beliefs than myself, so it would be a waste of time my trying to get on with someone who I could not reconcile my views with. People have to be compatible, I wouldn't be able to form a commited attachment with someone who was into weird piercings or tattoos anymore than I would with someone who liked to dress up in a gimp suit at the weekend or, or a chav, or someone who went seal clubbing for fun.

    don't be silly. someone with a small, discrete tattoo is as incompatible for you as someone who kills baby animals for larks?

    I have two tattoos, and I think getting tattooed is common enough now not to say anything about me anymore, other than that I like some tattoos. Having a tattoo doesn't say anything about your personality at all - I think someone who would dismiss a person because they had a tattoo would be beyond stupid.

    nobody likes cheap tattoos. especially the kid who has it done because they have to live with it, so it's always worth joining the waiting list or paying a bit more

    ah yes, full sleeves end up costing silly amounts.
    i have a big piece on my arm that heads towards a half sleeve, but don't think i have the money of commitment for a full one ha.
    i'd say all good places are about £80 an hour ish.
    oops, bit off topic, as this did start off as how girls with tattoos and tongue piercings are the dregs of society.
    good day sir.

    haha yea i think it did start off like that
    maybe (well almost certain) i will spend "some" of my student loan on a nice tat. i looked around and i think i'm looking at 25+ hours of work just on that one sleeve (very detailed), and thats like 2000 =O
    back to topic erm... a girl in the year below me has a nasty tramp stamp, and i wouldnt like to have a relationship with her, and thats being nice lol

    I think its sexy when people use body modification (or lack of) to throw some contrast into their personality. At uni I knew a girl who was a bit of a bad girl type, big socialiser, party girl, sexually confident, rebellious....she hated tattoos, piercings, or any kind of cosmetic surgery - her attitude was "nobodys going to alter my body" and she saw people who did it as sheep following a fashion trend. I found it sexy that she had her own strong opinion on it and bucked the norm where often girls like her would have a little bit of body mod done at least.

    Then the opposite was a girl who was Miss Sensible, the one who would stay relatively sober to make sure she could look after her friends on a night out, got a first in her degree, hard working etc...she had a small tongue stud which did add a very definite sexy "edge" to her personality, it gave the message "theres more to me than you might think" and it made you fascinated by her and want to get to know her better.

    i've heard that guys think that a girl with a tounge piercing or tattoo is trashy or slutty and not girlfriend material but only good to hook up with. is this true? if you saw a classy intelligent girl with a tongue piercing and tattoo on her stomach would you think she was the above? most guys seem to think it means the girl is only up for one thing, and not girlfriend material even if she is classy and post grad??
    My ex has a tattoo and a lip piercing and she isn't trashy/slutty. She's one of the most intelligent people I know.

    In answer to your question I think, like everything else, that it depends on the individual in question. Don't judge a book by its cover, etc.
