Women with tattoos on their lower backs branded as 'easier'

Getting inked on your lower back may not be the smartest move if you are looking for a serious relationship indicates a recent study. It revealed that women with tattoos on their lower back were considered both more likely to go on a date and also more likely to have sex on the first date.

Why lower back tattoos are seen as tramp stamps?
The “Tramp Stamp” is a derogatory name for a tattoo which a woman has on her lower back. Women baring this type of tattoo was commonly labeled as tramps, whores, or anything else dealing with being promiscuous behaviour, during the early 70s and 80s and it does not seem like much has changed when it comes to people’s opinions since then, especially looking at the findings of a recent study.

What it revealed?
A team from France’s Université de Bretagne-Sud conducted a study on the beaches of Brittany during the summers of 2008 and 2009. 11 university-aged women who had been rated as the most attractive out of a group of 58 visited the  beach 20 times during the summer, wearing a temporary tattoo on their lower back 50 per cent of the time and with clean skin the rest of the time. When women were displaying the tattoos researchers found that the men were more likely to approach and then chat with them, as well as being quicker in making their approach. 

For the second part of the experiment a group of over 400, 20something men who were on the beaches at the same time as the sunbathing women were quizzed. They were asked to answer two questions about the women, once they had been identified as somebody to analyse with reference to a study in romantic relationships: What they thought the likelihood was of the girl agreeing to go out on a date with them, and of the likelihood of having sex on the first date? They were also asked to rate the girl’s attractiveness. 

The results showed that women with tattoos were considered both more likely to go on a date and also more likely to have sex on the first date. Critics of the findings claim that they are incomplete because no reasons were given as to why the men reacted this way, whether it is based on stereotypes or personal experiences, and also the survey only took in to account one particular type and placement of tattoo.
