 Men With Tattoos Make Best Husbands, Says Science, And Here's Why

Tattoos are still a tad controversial with a certain crowd so it's natural to feel a little hesitant to bring a guy home with noticeable tattoos. But it's 2017 goshdarnit so it's time to stop judging and start loving. After all, a well-placed tattoo 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 men with tattoos make the best husbands. If you don't agree, you've sadly been 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?

So, when you're considering why men with tattoos make the best husbands, remind yourself that you shouldn't be afraid of a little ink. After all, it makes a man much sexier.
