Tools of Attraction: Tattoos
Connor, 29, art director
Describe your tattoos for me.
I've got more traditional tattoos. A gypsy girl, and some roosters, some ducks.
Do they mean anything special to you?
Not really, just whatever I like at the time. I've got this rooster because my friend and I got matching tattoos. We live on opposite ends of Australia and when we got together, we decided to get tattoos.
Do you think you get a lot of sexual attention for your tattoos?
I don't know. Maybe. That's the plan. But I don't know how well it works.
How much did the tattoos cost?
About $4,000 total. And I'm going to try to get some over here again.
Do you find you're ever stereotyped for having tattoos?
I don't think so anymore. Everyone's got tattoos these days. Luckily I work in a job where it does really matter so much, so it doesn't affect me work-wise.
Are tattoos a turn-on for you?
Oh yeah, absolutely. I'm worried that it's a bit "now." I've always had girlfriends with tattoos, but in twenty years it might not be as cool.
