We have erotic romance author Cari Quinn here today to talk about her newest release, No Flowers Required, and the sexiness that is tattoos and piercings. Take it away Cari!!
Tattoos and piercings…hot or not?
Thank you so much to The Book Pushers for having me here today!
NO FLOWERS REQUIRED, book 2 in the Love Required series, released at the end of August and one of the things readers seem to be enjoying in the book are Dillon’s tattoos. Along with his handful of tats—including a very colorful one of a certain reptile, but I’ll leave you to find out which!—he also has an eyebrow piercing. For me, the eyebrow piercing was even more OMG-yum than his tats. But I gotta say the whole package—ahem—worked for me!
Why? There’s just something edgy and hot about a guy who adorns his body with things that mean something to him, even if all they remind him of is a fun memory of an afternoon spent at a friend’s tattoo shop. When he was younger, Dillon was a guinea pig for a friend with a shop and allowed his body to be a canvas for his pal to try out new designs. And yeah, Alexa sure enjoys the bennies that come along from that decision!
Many people get tattoos and piercings that represent significant moments in their lives, but only one of Dillon’s tattoos has a special meaning to him. He just likes body ink. And since I sure enjoyed poring over image sites for guys sporting hot tattoos, I definitely had no problem with his love of body adornment!
On the other hand, his older brother Cory is the exact opposite. He doesn’t understand the meaning of the words “dressing down” and would never contemplate a piercing, though he goes hog wild and gets a tattoo in his book. Heck, he may even get two—but the possible placement of the second one depends on just how much of a hard time his heroine gives him. I’m thinking *very* hard…
What about you? Do tattoos and piercings on a guy rock your world or do you like prefer your men sans sans body adornment? (And if so, Dillon’s brother Cory may just be for you!)
