“Men with tattoos are likely to provide serious competition for a woman’s attention, at least in the eyes of other guys, but women themselves actually aren’t that impressed. That’s according to research published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, where 2584 heterosexual men and women from Poland viewed photos of shirtless men, sometimes digitally modified so that their arm was emblazoned with a smallish black tattoo depicting a generic symbol. The 215 men among the participants rated the inked bods as more attractive than tattoo-free comparison models, which presumably reflects in part what they think women are looking for in an ideal male partner. But the female participants didn’t rate the tattooed gentlemen as more attractive; moreover, they considered them worse prospects as partners and parents.”
Men like tattoos, not women.
Men cannot judge what women want….
Unless they’re bisexual. There’s a reason homosexual men love tattoos.
And that was with a small tattoo.
If low IQ men are doing it, don’t!
The cultural conformity is based on Hollywood, hook them up to lie detectors and look at female dating history.
Look at whether they shun such people or deny offers from them.
Do a perception of IQ and personality disorder study.
Otherwise it’s like racial studies, the impulse to be agreeable will cause them to lie about the intensity of their repulsion. Look at what they DO.
“The presence of tattoos on forensic psychiatric inpatients should alert clinicians to a possible diagnosis of Antisocial Personality Disorder, and also about the potential for histories of suicide attempt, substance abuse and sexual abuse, according to research published in Personality and Mental Health.”
Sauce police, take note.
“The prevalence of tattoos is higher among people with mental disorders and those likely to come in contact with mental health services. The motivations for acquiring a tattoo are varied and tattoos can give clues to the presence of particular psychiatric conditions and to the inner world of patients. Psychiatrists need to be aware of the health and safety issues surrounding the tattooing procedure and be able to give appropriate advice to their patients if they wish to acquire a tattoo. The issue of capacity must be considered. This may be particularly relevant for clinicians working with adolescents, the most common age group for acquiring tattoos. Owing to the high proportion of adults who subsequently regret their tattoos and the associated psychological and social distress, clinicians should be aware of methods of tattoo removal.”
Maybe the Nazis should’ve let the mad ones brand themselves?
I’m going through a traumatic time in my life, let’s brand me with a lifelong reminder! That’ll help!
Biased researchers can’t find anything good, such as higher creativity.
“Conclusion: Tattooed students seem to be neither less intelligent nor more creative than other students.”
Didn’t study general pop., students are already filtered by IQ.
Tatted people are not more creative.
They do, however, make an unusual “baaa” sound.
