Behr Pick: Tuesday Tattoo

A while back I started waffling back and forth as to whether I found tattoos sexy or not. I started thinking that ink has become commonplace and uninteresting; tattoos are becoming commonplace and uninteresting, especially among male gay porn stars. Take a look: those who are getting the black tats in designs that cover their shoulders, chests, arms, backs, etc look like every one else's. The uniqueness and fascination is waning.

Then I see someone like this guy who has color designs covering major guns. THIS tattooed guy is hot and sexy. His ink is unique, beautiful...it's art. It's possible that his tats tell a story or represent something symbolic to him. THAT is what body art is supposed to be about.

And so my final conclusion is: if the tattoos are unique, in color, tell a story, and/or are artfully rendered, then they tend to make the wearer sexy and hot and woofy. But if the tat designs are commonplace and boring, for example, blocks of black ink, then they just becomes banal and the sexiness and allure dissipate.

Just my opinion on this tattoo Tuesday. BEHR HUGS

I love words like banal and allure. :-)
I think I'd like tattoos better if they were covered by a thick layer of hair.
I don't have one and never will. Mostly because I'm afraid the tattooist, upon hearing me scream and squeal, would kill me just to shut me up. Maybe I need to find an anesthesiologist who does tattoos on the side...

I think it really depends on the man. Some men look incredibly hot with tats while others look absurd.

some of the "sleaves" that a lot of guys are getting now can be a little too much in some cases.

This is one of the few areas where our tastes differ. I'm not a fan of tattoo, with the exception of a tribal band around the bicep. In my opinion, a little ink goes a long way.
