Which Came First–The Tramp or The “Tramp Stamp???”
I'll be honest here, I've never been a fan of tattoos---especially on a woman. Just not my cup of tea. To be it takes away from the natural beauty of a woman and can be such a distraction. Have you heard of what's called a "Tramp Stamp?"
If you are unfamiliar with what a tramp stamp is, it's a lower back tattoo that has become synonymous with promiscuous women. The tramp stamp may have a bad name, but in reality it's a very popular place for women to get inked because it's easily hidden – but when you want to show it, you can. In fact, nearly 23% of tattooed females have lower back ink.
But how did it get associated with promiscuity? The French wanted to find out, so they did a study on it!
Turns out, women with a tramp stamp are generally more
Promiscuous than women without one. The reason – women with ink and piercings get hit on more than women without – because men think they have a better chance at getting lucky with someone who has body art. Maybe it has something to do with the perception that tattooed or pierced women are more comfortable in their own skin, or it's just a stereotype that anyone with a tattoo lives an "edgy" lifestyle, but either way, a lower back tattoo has morphed into an invitation to get hit on by dudes.
