People with tattoos are more likely to have passionate extramarital affairs, according to a new study. Perhaps, not too surprisingly, those dabbling in the world of adultery are also more likely to be women than men, and there is apparently a movement of women, possessing secret tattoos, who reveal them only in the most intimate of moments.
The study, conducted by VictoriaMilan – a dating website for married and attached people looking to have an affair, asked more than 3 million of its active members across 16 countries about their tattoos, and whether or not ink had any relation to sex.
The study shows that Scandinavian women are most likely to have tattoos: Denmark (42.3%), Finland (41.1%) and Sweden (40.8%) are the top three countries on the list of 15.
Statistics show that tattoos are more popular with women than men across the 15 countries – the percentage of females having tattoos is on average 25% higher than the males from the same country.
In Italy, 35.8% of signoras will have a tattoo, while just 29% of men. One-third (33.9%) of Dutch ladies have ink, while only one-fifth (22.1%) of Dutch men can say the same. 28% of Spanish women have tattoos, but only 19% of Spanish men have gone under the needle.
Some women aren’t as keen to publicly express their darker side and indulge in secret tattoos. The most likely places to find secret sexy tattoos on women are Finland (15.8%), United Kingdom (11.1%) and Ireland (10%).
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, said the results revealed a sexy new side to the world of body art.
“Tattoos are a sign of personality, creativity and rebellion, and now we know they are a sign that the person probably has a great sex life. This may spark a worldwide hunt to discover the craze for sexy intimate tattoos, as men like to discover things that are seemingly just for them,” Mr Vedal said.
Victoria Milan’s study collected this data from active members enjoying their love lives and extramarital affairs in 16 countries: Denmark, Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Belgium, France, Spain, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Netherlands, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland, South Africa.
