Top 10 Tattoos For Men That Women Find AttractiveAs a woman, I feel like I have a very different idea as to what makes a tattoo attractive than a male. While I have a penchant for more dainty tattoos on women themselves, what I see as sexy on a man is a lot more diverse. Here is a look into the top 10 tattoos for men I find really appealing.
Tattoos that feature a religion or way of life are very appealing, especially if the male in question has some really strong opinions on the topic. There is nothing sexier than passion, and if you are brave enough to wear that passion with you always, you get an A+ in my book.
2. Tattoos with great shadow work
Tattoos that feature really detailed work, using shadows and light to show dimension, make beautiful statements. Especially tattoos that feature nautical elements, or animals, with elaborate shading because you can really see the tattoo come to life.
3. Dainty tattoos for men
Remember my love for dainty tattoos on women? Well, they are super attractive on men too. There is something really powerful about thin lines. Honestly, sometimes the simpler the tattoo – the bolder the statement.
4. 3D tattoos
Really talented body artists can make a tattoo look 3-dimensional and that kind of work makes body art really stand out to me. The detail in this first tattoo, where even the tone of the man’s skin is used to shade the tattoo of a warrior, makes a positive impression in part because of the attention to detail, color, and shadowing.
5. Compass tattoos
Tattoos that feature compasses can be really meaningful. The thought of a tattoo that guides you on a personal level, is really attractive to women.
6. Tattoos that show a scene
Wraparound tattoos are really creative and the use of dots to show dimension really help these kinds of tattoos stand out. Since these kinds of tattoos curve around the arm or leg, it encourages men and women to stop and look around the whole area to get the full story. Tattoos like these show time and dedication, as well as a story.
7. Heartbeat tattoos
A heartbeat tattoo, especially when it’s a particular heartbeat (like the exact pattern of a loved one’s heart), is really sexy on a man. Since we associate the heart as the center of love, having a tattoo like this helps immortalize a particular love or moment.
8. Tattoos that follow veins
If you haven’t noticed yet, it’s often the little details that make tattoos more attractive, and in this case having the tattoo taper off into a vein is a nice touch. Trees have so many different meanings in tattoos and seeing that nature is literally melding into someone’s veins can send a pretty strong message. The angles of these kinds of tattoos are also really masculine, bringing attention to muscle definition.
9. Matching tattoos
Matching tattoos are a great way to show someone you love them, especially in long-term relationships and marriages. While I think that the crowns in this particular tattoo stands out a little too much in relation to the text in the tattoo, I really enjoy the symbolism. Crowns often stand for loyalty, so when combined with this tattoo, it helps tell a story. Nothing is sexier than commitment.
10. Feminine tattoos on men
And in this new age of equality for all and an increased emphasis on bending gender lines and tolerance, traditionally female tattoos on men is pretty sexy. I love when someone is confident in who they are and what they love, so seeing floral scenes on men is a pretty attractive tattoo choice.
But overall, as a woman, I find the sexiest tattoos are the ones that are important to you. In all of the ten tattoos shown here, you can see passion and importance. They weren’t just cool tattoos of random objects, they had meaning, and that’s pretty sexy. Tattoos are forever, not just trendy accessories, and I think it’s wonderful when men and women treat them as such.
So, tell me your story. What tattoos do you love and why?
