Now Trending: Dating For The Tattooed

The tattoo trend will never end! People continue to tattoo every part of their bodies; including their boobs, their butts, and even their penises! So what better way to meet people than through your sexy tattoos?

Chris Potts, who runs the dating website inked2gether says he created the site for “tattoo enthusiasts” to meet each other. (He also notes that dating site Farmer’s Only was not working for him.) The site, which started locally in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania, has grown worldwide, with membership reaching to England and Japan, “where tattoos are big,” he says. In America he says, “Tattooing is a big culture.”

So what do tattooed people have in common? “A lot of tattooed people are very open sexually and are not afraid to show skin,” he says. “As they say, get tattooed or die naked. Getting wild and crazy is our life. Many of us are exhibitionists.”

And besides dating sites, how do tattooed people meet other tattooed people?
“You just walk up to someone and say “I like your tattoo,” he says. “Then they will tell you a story about it. Everyone has a story it. And some people have multiple tattoos.” He also recommends going to tattoo conventions where everyone is friendly, “free spirited,” and often single and ready to mingle.

Trend wise, what is sexy in the tattoo world? “Tramp stamps on the lower back are out,” he says. You don’t see people getting those anymore. They’d rather get a whole back piece instead.” So what’s in? “Tattoos at the back of the neck are sexy for both men and women, tattoos at the back of the ear, inside the wrist, and on the feet,” he says. We are also seeing more women getting small tattoos in the pelvic region or on the side of the hip or thigh. Then there is the under the boob tattoo known as a “chandelier. “Those are sexy,” he says.

“Many women who are breast cancer survivors with mastectomies have nipples tattooed onto their reconstructed breasts, which is very cool,” says co-creator of inked2gether Jim Miller. (This is the final procedure recommended by plastic surgeons.) “And they look very real and natural. Here’s a case where tattoos can improve people’s lives.”

“And we even see men getting tattoos on their penises,” says Potts, “like a little ladybug on the tip, or a “your name here” somewhere on the thing.” But that’s just gotta, that just has to hurt.”
