Tattoos Becoming More Common

It used to be that only men had tattoos and most of them seemed to have gotten them in the service. Now, more and more men–and women–are getting inked and, according to the New York Times, the majority of those getting inked are happy with their decision. There are a couple of downsides however.

The Times reported a Pew Research study that found that 23% of all Americans had tattoos. There were some other interesting findings.

18% of young adults have six or more tatts
61% of HR managers say a tattoo hurts a job applicant’s chances of landing a job
86% of the inked don’t regret their tatt
27% of people with tattoos are seen as less intelligent
Among all adults, men and women are equally likely to have a tattoo.

Thus far I have avoided getting tattoo although several of my friends have succumbed to tattoo fever. A matter of personal choice, I suppose.



Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean Get Matching Tattoos

Those who sing together … get inked together? Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean have placed their solidarity for the Buck Commander franchise on display, tattooing the company’s logo on their biceps as a form of permanent endorsement.
