Women With More Tattoos Actually Have Higher Self-Esteem, Suggests New Study

A new study suggests that women with tattoos actually have higher self-esteem than those without.

Conducted by researchers at Texas Tech University, the study set out to uncover the correlation between tattoos and sense of self and wellbeing.

The research was led by Dr. Jerome Koch and measured the number of tattoos in comparison to levels of self-esteem, as well as depression and suicidal thoughts or attempts.

Of 2,395 participants gathered from six public American universities, 67% were white; 59% were female; 82% were between the ages of 18 and 20.

The research discovered (of the sample size) females with four or more tattoos reported a “substantively and significantly higher level of self-esteem” than their female peers with no or fewer than four tattoos.

Continuing their findings, the researchers had rather dark results to report, as the same group of women who reported higher levels of self-esteem were also four times more likely to have had previous suicide attempts.

Researchers speculate the women, mostly freshman and sophomore college students, may be attempting to reclaim and express their sense of self through the choice to tattoo their bodies.

Not to be misled, the study does not indicate a correlation between people who get tattoos and subsequently attempt suicide, made apparent by the increasing prevalence of tattoos in modern-day culture.

Inked Ladies: 29 Completely Rational Reasons To Date A Woman With Tattoos

I maybe a little biased on this subject, as my girlfriend is an inked wonder, but tattooed women are so hot!

There’s something dark, mysterious and sexy about a woman who dabbles in body art. They are a statement of someone’s soul and state of mind.

It’s expressive; it had to be painful and it shows no fear.

Nothing can quite pull attention like the appearance of a well-pronounced tattoo, and nothing is quite as sexy.

Forget what you were told, the woman with tattoos makes an awesome, passionate girlfriend. She wants to take a bite out of life and you’d do well to take one out of her.

Here are 24 completely logical reasons why you should date a guy with tattoos:

1. She has that bad girl look — even if she’s reformed.

2. She treats her life and body like a canvas.

3. She wants to leave her mark, to make the world more vivacious.

4. She’s committed… Because Nothing says “commitment” like having a picture stamped to your body for life. So you know, when she makes a decision, she stands by it.
