What do You Think of Ink

My pops was in the Navy in World War II.  While overseas, like so many sailors, he got a tattoo. On his left forearm was the image of a cowgirl leaning against a fence.  It wasn’t until 5 years after his death that I discovered that later in life he was embarrassed about it.   These days’ tattoos seem to be a badge or normalcy!  21% of U.S. adults now have at least one tattoo, up from 16% in 2008 and 14% in 2003. While many embrace this as personal artwork, those who do not have tattoos are less understanding. The Harris Poll people found 45% of those who don’t have tattoos say adults who do have them are less attractive and 39% say that are not as sexy

  • When it comes to regions of the country, tattoos are more prevalent in the West where 26% of adults have at least one tattoo, compared to the South where they are more uncommon with just 18% inking their skin.
  • 38% of adults ages 30 to 39 have a tattoo, compared with just 5% of those 65 and older.
  • Women are slightly more likely to have a tattoo than a man with 23% of women being inked, compared to 19% of men.

Among those with a tattoo, most have never regretted getting a tattoo (86%) and three in 10 say it makes them feel more sexy (30%). If you have a “tat”, how does it
