Abstract

Studies of how people with tattoos are perceived have focused mainly on appropriateness and attractiveness. This present study is testing the hypothesis that people with tattoos are perceived to be less successful, with women being more negatively perceived. Participants are being instructed to rate pictures of other people on areas involved with success levels. The pictures are all either male or female, and are either people with tattoos or without tattoos. I anticipate that the people who do not have tattoos to be rated significantly higher on these success areas, and for women with tattoos to be rated the least successful. This study is still currently collecting data, and the actual findings may not be the same as what I am anticipating.
