Statistics have shown that American acceptance of the art of tattooing has grown by over 10% in the last 80 years. If this doesn’t sound like much to you this is the difference in an average of 6% or about 10 million Americans in 1936 up to 16% in a survey recorded in a 2003 Harris Poll. Numbers shown are nearly tripled.With an estimated 20,000 + tattoo studios running in the United States alone, finding the perfect place for your skin art is no longer a problem as it once was.
On the internet these days. One of the top three ranking generalized search engine queries are regarding tattoos in some manner. In July of he year 2002 internet rankings showed tattoos coming in at number 2 on search engines. This says incredible amounts for the overall popularity of tatttoos in this day and age of advanced technology.
How Do Tattoos Make You Feel?
It will come as a slight surprise to realize that 34% of those with tattoos say that their tattoos make them feel sexy! More women then men may say this, but at the same time many men have said that a female having a tattoo has made them more attractive to them. Up to 29% of people with tattoos said that their skin art makes them feel rebellious and only 5% of skin art enthusiast claim that their tattoos make them feel more intelligent.
How Often Do People Regret Getting Their Tattoos?
A large majority of tattooed Americans do not regret their lifelong decisions on their skin art. But 17% do express some regrets in their choices. Odd surveys have shown that those who regret their tattoos the most are tattooed Republicans at 24% and Americans living in Southern States at 21%. Well, HMMM, I’d love to say more, but there is no room for political or stereotypical arguments here! The largest regretted type of tattoo in these instances were occasions when someone had a persons name or initials tattooed into their skin.
Believe it or not there is a lot of methodology used in figuring out these statistics. Honestly as a lover of skin art of all varieties I am just glad to know that at least if some of our scientist are willing to spend years testing how ketchup ages in petri dishes, there are other scientist willing to get to the bottom of why Republicans with ex girlfriends names tattooed on them suffer the most regrets!
