  • Why do guys get tatoos? Probably the same reason.
  • Why not?
  • They get them because they like them, same reason guys get them.
  • I like my tattoo. It has personal meaning for me. You wouldn't even know I have it if I didn't show it to you, but that's ok, because it's not meant to get attention. It commemorates a very special time in my life. Everyone has different reasons for getting inked, and none is better or more valid reason than another. Like what car you buy or how you cut your hair, it is a personal choice.
  • Because they can. Duh.
  • The same reason why men get them. It's mainly because of self-expression.
  • I think you just dont get it because you view men and women differently on certain things or maybe all things. Whats your reasoning behind why you dont get it? Are you suggesting its cool if guys get them? I would guess you just see them as manly and why would a woman want to ruin her "canvas" of a body with some crazy tattoos. I am sure there are several answers for this but the group of girls who cover their body or a lot of it are girls who probably are really artistic and want to express that through tattoos. Other girls who get a couple or just one probably thought it was cool at the time and were just following the trend. Some others may just like the way they look on their body. Also it can become of an addiction for both guys and girls. I personally have two tattoos. My sisters and I all have the same tattoo. I have one that I got after going through the worst time and my life and I got for constent inspiration and to keep me thinking positively. I dont know if this helped at all.
  • What's there not to get? They get them done just like men like getting them done. It isn't rocket science me old fruit. Depending where they are and how big, the can look very sexy on a lady.
  • I love my tattoos,mine are all symbolic,i have a large Ankh on my lower back,with anubis and the eye of horus. I have bast on my arm sitting on a triple moon pentagram,i have a butterflie on my wrist and a balck rose with my eldest sons name under it with my name. I have my ex hubbys name on my back of which my brother has just designed me a phoenix to cover it over with(hes a artist)The Phoenix being symbolic. I just love tattooes there are a lot of tasteful ones :)
  • Self Expression
  • Because they can
  • because they like them, and to express them selves y shouldnt women get tattoos, just because you dont understand it? tough i have no room in my life for shallow people, i have 7 tattoos at the age of 19 they all have a story to them and i do not regreat a single 1 if people like them, great if not, thats fine. but it really annoyes me when people say they shouldnt as there is no reasoning bhind that!
  • The same reason men do, they find something they like and they put it on their body.
  • You don't have to get it. Plus, I would never flaunt my tattoos in anyone's face. They are for me.
  • I don't get why anyone gets tattoos, but I don't have any problems with their choice. I used to like to do face painting, and enjoyed the decoration. To me the best part was they were washable. I think it's interesting how the fad spreads every once in awhile, and then dies down for awhile. It seems a lot like fashions.
  • I guess for the same reason guys do.
  • Personally,I don't like tattoos wether they are on men or women. However, I realize everyone is entitled to express themselves in what ever way they choose. If they choose to use their bodies, then so be it, who are we to decide if its right or wrong. My daughter has 4 now and would like more. It's her choice.
  • I have one on my left ankel that just say Me So when I get old all I have to do it look down and remenber who I am
  • You would have to ask the individual woman. I can say that I got my tattoos because I feel more like myself than without them, because I like my outside reflecting my inside, and because there are things in my life that I want to keep with me forever. I can't speak for other women, because they got their tattoos for their own reasons.
  • Why do men get tattoos?? I really annoys me that getting tattoos is more accepted if men are the one getting them, But if woman want to put some ink in their skin, it looks butch, or trashy. Tattooing is an artform, Woman find beauty in them too.
  • Why do men ?
  • No one says you have to " get it " . Some people like being tattooed, some don't. You don't have to understand for someone else to enjoy something.
  • I wouldn't want one, but I don't know why a woman shouldn't get one if they want. I would worry what a tattoo would look like when I'm old and wrinkly!
  • Many cultures tattoo, pierce, and scar as some sort of enhancement. Personally, I don't think anyone, man or woman, should to that stuff. The human is an astoundingly beautiful being as is. I think that those things just take away. Especially as they get older. And, some people have so much crap on them that they look hideous.
  • Because we don't live in the dark ages any more, we can do what we want. If we like something, we do it. And we have every right to.
  • I dont like them myself and dont have any!!!! What could be a popular tattoo now, might mean something completely different in 40 years time..... and they dont rub off y'know. Also a very wise man once told me- "Never get a tattoo of a rose, cos when your old and wrinkley that will look more like a cabbage" HAHA
  • Philip I agree with you. These women do not get it. I think its dumb for anyone male or female to get a tattoo. I am a guy and would never screw up my body like that. Boob Jobs are a turn off to me as well. Women look like freaking truck drivers with tattoos. Angelina Jolie is a gorgeous woman and than f's up her body by getting those disgusting things
  • Because we like them!!
  • Cause they like them...to each his own..I don't have any cause I don't want any....I will still like you if you have one though! :)
  • They are inspired by those big, muscular, tatooed bikers.
