Tattoo and Piercing Fetish

Sexy Woman with Tattoos

We all have fetishes. Some are tame and well recognized while others are a bit, well, down right strange. This one falls somewhere in the middle.

I call this an everyday fetish because, if it’s your thing, you can enjoy it wherever you go. Tattoos and piercings have become so mainstream. It’s not like the old days when your mother told you if you got a tattoo, you’d never get a job.

Tattoos and Piercings as Body Modification Fetish

Stigmatophilia refers to the arousal one feels when they see or engage with partners that have scarring or body modification. You can be interested in only tattoos or only piercings, but usually the two go hand-in-hand.

You might get turned on by the sight of a woman with a small butterfly tattoo on her ankle, or it may take a fully tatted girl to get you going. When I see heavily tattooed men online, I always wonder if they go for a women without any tattoos. I like tats on other people but never desired my own. Thankfully there are men who dig women without any body modifications.

In fact, for those that do desire partners specifically with tattoos and want to try “tattoo dating”, there’s even a site called TatDating.com!

It isn’t always a lover with tattoos that turns the crank. There’s also the fascination and obsession of covering one’s own body. You know these people; they just can’t stop once they start. The act of getting inked becomes a ritual.  Tattoo fetishists will say, the more tats they get, the happier they are.

You rarely see a person with multiple tattoos that doesn’t have a single piercing. This fetish is a two-for-one special. A person with stigmatophilia may be aroused just by looking at a person with piercings, but it more likely extends to sexual encounters with one who has genital, tongue, or nipple piercings.

I’ll admit, a tongue stud does enhance oral sex and I’m curious to know what it feels like to sleep with a man who has a ring through his cock.

Ear gauging, the stretching of earlobes, also falls into this category. I don’t get this one because you need reconstructive surgery if you ever want your old ears back. Hmmm.

Many people who work in the tattoo and piercing industry are self-proclaimed fetishists. Imagine being turned on all day at work. I don’t know if I could handle it.
