According to the recent research conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Western Australia men with beards and tattoos are a kind of attractive gender of the male. Beards and tattoos letting the ladies literally slide on their desks.
In the study a group of 154 professors researched primate monkeys that certain physical characteristics as ornaments with leaves and branches, “turbulent body hair as long whiskers or other distinctive physical characteristics used to impress the female species. The female primate monkeys saw some strong masculine identity in those body adornments, a branch dominance and even ardent sexual attraction!
According to the group of researchers, these findings are also apply able on humans. Having beards and tattoos can be seen as human ’embellishments’. These men are increasingly concerned to measure himself a certain identity, because of the fierce competition. Therefore, women have a weakness for a man with a unique appearance characterized as having a shaggy beard and a unique tattoo.
Whether this is the reason behind the beard and tattoo trend is unknown. Although, in 2010, research showed that on average 1 in 4 ‘Millennials’ is in possession of a beard or tattoo. Being unique is more popular than ever, perhaps maybe it explains the fashion trends for men like keeping a well-trimmed beard, tattoos and more jewelry.
