Tinder For The Tattooed? It's A Thing

by Julia Guerra

Are you looking for sparks, for adventure, for some seriously awesome ink? Chicago based iPhone/Android app Tat Chat is like Tinder for the tattooed, and it's a super cool concept. We need more of these hyper-specific dating apps!

The overall concept of dating app -- or what I like to consider the hookup hotline -- Tinder is actually quite genius. We've got an application hooked up to our Facebook profiles where we pretty much spill our life story, likes, dislikes and type of human we prefer to associate ourselves with, and given this information it arranges a stream of possible matches, available at our fingertips. Perfect, right? Eh, not quite.

Unfortunately, Tinder has gotten a bad rap. What started off as an online dating site gone mobile is now filled with creepers or simply people who clearly are not looking for the same things you are. So, what if you could get even more specific? If people with only tattoos can develop their own dating app, imagine just how meticulous these digital matching applications can get? Oh, the possibilities! *Cue evil genius laugh*

When it comes down to it: love is not always easy to find. You'll stumble, fall, bruise, pick yourself up again and repeat the process until the fall is graceful, with that special person holding out their arms to catch you. Until then, we can certainly make the process of finding our one and only a bit easier. Check out my list of 7 dating apps that should be a thing ASAP.
