There is definitely a correlation between tattoos and my desire to see a person nude. My desire is inversely proportional to the amount of tattoos. To say that I do not share the love for those things would putting it mildly.
There’s also a z-axis: age. Old nudists, of the sort you see in officially-sanctioned resorts, tend to have not a whole lot of body art. The younger folks are more likely to have been inked, but they show up more on beaches and at informal gatherings.
To be honest, I wonder how well some of the tats I see on the college kids these days are going to hold up over time. Gravity has a way of doing weird stuff to skin, especially as connective tissue wears out….
I’m okay with some tats but I will confess that the ones on the face and the neck get to me. Several reasons for this, not just the association with guys doing hard time.
