Right i don't watch porn but i have seen them porn award ceremonies and general stuff and an area that has always surprised me is why do pornstars get them grotesque tattoos done. I mean it makes them look worse than before. I am guessing here but i imagine your body is your key asset as a pornstar so getting some huge tattoo plastered all over your leg or chest or lower back and bum, well it must diminish your saleability.
Lets assume some men like tattoos on a woman okay, but then some men do not. Let say for arguments sake its a 50/50 split, which i very much doubt. The problem is men who like tattoos DON'T dislike the absence of tattoos, but men who don't like tattoos DON'T like tattoos. So it follows to achieve peak saleable commercial advantage do not get yourself daubed in tattoos.
But they do and as Frank Sinatra might say , "not in a shy way." Big gaudy, inky monstrosities !!!
I have come to the conclusion the reason they do it is the same reason women in prison tattoo themselves so heavily. They have reached a point where they feel a desperate need to reassert ownership of their own body. In prison their freedom and liberty is restricted and it is a reaction against that. In the porn world the women must be left feeling so alienated and physically dispossessed that they feel they have to reclaim ownership of their own bodies by an act that actually undermines their career potential.
