Well, Spring has sprung, flowers are in bloom, and the bees are buzzing. Which brings me immediately to Bumble. Have you tried Bumble, yet? If not (liar) then, in a nutshell, it is a dating app similar to Tinder but with less restraining orders and an inordinate number of pictures of men holding fish, or standing next to cars. I mean I think – I wouldn’t know because I meet people the old fashioned way – running down the middle of my street yelling my dog’s name at 11:30 at night. I don’t know what the lady profiles feature, but based on some of the things the guys are writing (ok ok I looked at the app – but ONLY for research, swear) there may or may not be a large number of Snapchat filters (make it stop) and pointed requests for extremely tall men.
I don’t judge – let love find you however it may. I may not be great at online stuff but I am forever hopeful the right guy will come along – and hopefully swerve to miss since I will be in the middle of the road. But maybe my extreme dating style isn’t for you? Then if you are a big fan of tattoos and L’amour (French, y’ all) check out this article by the folks over at Tattooed Personals. And if you meet that perfect someone over there – I want an invite to your wedding 😉
Hard to Meet People that Appreciate Tattoos as Much as You Do
When it comes to love, the best partners aren’t easy to find. And if you have tattoos, sometimes dating can be even harder. But now, tattoos are more accepted throughout society. Rewind forty years back, and a tattooed personals section didn’t exist in a newspaper. There wasn’t a way for you to meet someone who appreciated your body without fearing rejection. But things have changed, and now having a tattoo is often seen as artistic expression.
On the other hand, if you’re someone who really loves tattoos, you want a partner who shares that enthusiasm with you. Does it mean they need to be covered in tats? Of course not. Some of the biggest tattoo fans are ones who don’t have an ounce of ink on them. But who are the hard to meet tattoo lovers of the world? You’re about to find out.
Who else would appreciate the art of tattoos more than an actual artist? Painters, sketch artists, and sculptors are people who love detail and expression through fine art. Aside from the beauty of tattoos, they also understand the process it takes to create a single piece of art. However, a real artist isn’t easy to find. Many of them are highly dedicated to their craft, investing hours of their day into it. Plus, they usually work during unconventional hours, with many of them staying up until the early morning. So, if you have a regular job, it’s easy to miss them.
When it comes to openness, university professors are usually very open-minded and respectful people. Of course, there’s always that one professor who hates everything and is waiting for their tenure to come. But some of the biggest tattoo fans are the ones who are shaping the minds of our society. Though they’re not hard to find, since they’re teaching in universities around the world, they’re hard to catch. They tend to spend a lot of time teaching, researching, or attending conferences. But if you head to the local pub around campus after school hours, they’ll probably be there.
World Travelers are typically free spirits who encourage and respect freedom of expression through any art form. They’re not sticking to the conformities of life, instead, they are making sure they take in as much as possible. With that said, these people aren’t sitting in an office for hours on end. The title ‘world traveler’ kind of gives off the vibe they’re not hanging around in one place for too long. You catch them on a whim, but it’s just as easy to miss them completely.
When we think about doctors, we assume they’re incredibly hygienic and aren’t interested in putting ink under their skin. However, this is a massive generalization as many of them not only are tattooed themselves but love the concept of tattoos. The only problem is their doctors. Now, your mother may have told you to get yourself a doctor, but getting one is an entirely different story. They work long hours, have different shifts, and are usually on-call for emergencies. If they work night shifts, you’re probably not going to run into them when you’re heading to the gym in the morning.
People in Business
Sure, they look professional in a suit and tie, but people in business are known for taking risks. As someone who has a tattoo, you’re probably a risk taker as well. Tattooed individuals are known to be resilient; getting ink under your skin isn’t a painless process. Through it all, they overcome the pain and end up with a beautiful piece of art on their bodies.
The same goes for those working in the business. They’re risk-takers who understand that pain is a part of the process if they want to succeed. Though businesspeople aren’t hard to find, their look can be slightly intimidating. This is why it’s hard to meet businesspeople who enjoy tattoos. Most of the time, they’re avoided because of their rigid and conservative appearance.
Whether you’re tattooed or not, meeting people can be tricky. But the good thing is that the perception of tattoos is continuing to change positively. Finding people who appreciate tattoos is always easier when you maintain a positive mindset and are confident in yourself.
