3 Reasons Guys With Tattoos Make The Best Husbands, Says Science

Guys With Tattoos

Give us a guy with ink or give us death.

Tattoos are still a tad controversial with certain crowd so it's natural to feel a little hesitant to bringing a guy home with noticeable tattoos. But it's 2015 goshdarnit so it's time to stop judging and start loving. After all, a well-placed tat is almost the norm these days so you really would just be limiting yourself by making "no tattoos" a deal breaker.

Need more convincing? Here are 3 reasons why you need to hop on the tattooed guy bandwagon if you have been sadly missing out:

1. They'll have a ton of sex with you.

Not everyone can be wrong, right? A study published in Sexual Medicine found people with body modifications (tattoos and piercings) have sex more than those without. Time to find out what the fuss is all about

2. They're more confident.

Some ignorant people assume that having tats automatically means that person is insecure or hates their body. FALSE! A study found that people actually have less anxiety and dissatisfaction of their looks immediately after they get a tattoo and have higher self-esteem three weeks after getting a tattoo.

3. They're educated.

Your mom probably told you to never bring a guy home with tattoos (drug addicts, criminals, stereotypes, oh my!) But you shouldn't judge a book by its cover — a recent study found that many young, educated students are getting inked. After surveying 1,753 students, they found 14 percent have tattoos and 4 percent reported having seven or more piercings, four or more tattoos, and/or at least one piercing in their nipples or genitals. Who knew?
