Abstract

The present study was conducted to examine whether individuals with tattoos were found to be more or less attractive than non-tattooed individuals. Researchers hypothesized that (1) men will give higher attractiveness ratings than women, (2) participants will give higher attractiveness ratings to tattooed targets than non-tattooed targets, and (3) men will give higher attractiveness ratings to non-tattooed targets than tattooed targets, whereas women will give higher attractiveness ratings to tattooed targets than non-tattooed targets. Participants were shown a photograph of an opposite-sex individual with a sleeve tattoo present or not. They were then asked to rate the level of attractiveness of the individual shown using a 10-point Likert scale. Data will be analyzed using a 2x2 ANOVA. Results and implications will later be obtained and discussed.
