Body Art: An Expression of Masculinity or Femininity? Evelyn Derus, Honors Psychology, University of Alberta Supervisor: Dr. C. Baerveldt Introduction Results Conclusions Is body craftsmanship an outflow of womanliness or manliness? While inspecting the BSRI in relationship to the nearness or nonappearance of body workmanship, no noteworthy results were discovered (X 2 =1.27,df=3,p=.736). While considering the sorts of body craftsmanship independently, the BSRI was additionally not connected with the nearness or nonattendance of a tattoo (X 2 =2.26,df=3,p=.520), or a body puncturing (X 2 =2.19,df=3,p=.534). Be that as it may, while inspecting regardless of whether a member had considered a tattoo or a body puncturing, noteworthy results were found. Members who were high on levels of manliness and bisexuality gave off an impression of will probably have a tattoo or have considered getting a tattoo. On the other hand, those low on these two measures, gave off an impression of being less inclined to have a tattoo and to have considered getting a tattoo (p=.030). Members who were high on levels of gentility and hermaphrodism gave off an impression of will probably have a body penetrating or have considered getting a body puncturing. On the other hand, those low on these two measures, had all the earmarks of being less inclined to have a body penetrating and to have considered getting one. In spite of the fact that outcomes were not critical (p=.052), it was drawing closer criticalness. While looking at the manliness scale as to inking, critical results were found. Members scoring high on levels of masc had all the earmarks of will probably have a tattoo or have considered getting one (p=.018). Guys scoring low on the masc scale, seemed, by all accounts, to be more averse to have considered a tattoo (p=.005). Body workmanship is all around. In spite of the fact that inking and body penetrating have been interpreted as indications of abnormality, amid the previous two decades body workmanship has started to channel into standard society as a prevalent and successful type of self expression. Inking and body puncturing have advanced throughout the years both in the implications and images connected with these demonstrations, and also the sorts of clients keen on these practices. The acts of inking and body puncturing not just test rule ideas about the use of the body, additionally challenge inflexible social measures of excellence, and legitimate articulations of womanliness and manliness. Body workmanship in the past has been seen as a demonstration suitable for the male body. Notwithstanding, late research has demonstrated that the female populace has progressively communicated more prominent intrigue and interest in wearing their bodies in tattoos and piercings (Armstrong, 1991). In spite of the fact that the BSRI levels were not connected with the nearness or nonattendance of body workmanship, fascinating results were found when taking a gander at regardless of whether the member had considered body craftsmanship. Nearness of a Tattoo and Tattoo Consideration n=46 n=47 n=48 n=44 n=46 n=47 n=44 X 2 =8.97,df=3, *p=.030 Purpose X 2 =7.75,df=3,p=.052 When analyzing levels of gentility and manliness independently, the manly scale introduced noteworthy and fascinating discoveries concerning tattoos as it were. Low, Medium, and High Levels of Masc speak to the 25 th , 50 th , and 75 th percentiles of the manliness score conveyance. This study investigated the interest behind body workmanship hones by examining the relationship between level of manliness and womanliness and the nearness or nonattendance of body craftsmanship. Strategy 251 Introductory Psychology University Students (110 Males, 141 Females) Participants finished an online body craftsmanship poll comprising of four segments: Demographics, Body Art, Tattooing, and Body Piercing To survey the member\'s level of manliness and womanliness, members finished the Bem Sex Role Inventory (Bem,1974) The BSRI arranges respondents into four gatherings: Masculine (High Masculine/Low Feminine) Feminine (Low Masculine/High Feminine) Androgynous (High Masculine/High Feminine) Undifferentiated (Low Masculine/Low Feminine) n=55 n=105 n=59 n=21 n=47 n=24 X 2 =8.01,df=2, *p=.018 X 2 =10.59,df=2, *p=.005 This study recommends that despite the fact that levels of manliness and gentility are not connected with having body workmanship, manliness seems, by all accounts, to be connected with the thought of having body craftsmanship.
