Women Outnumber Men in Tattoos

A recent poll shows that women outnumber men in tattoos. Times when tattoos were almost exclusively for mad-like men are gone. Women are tattooing their bodies more than ever, and even more than men. Pop culture, movies and television have made tattoos more socially acceptable. Just take a look at the recent Pop Stars and notice how they are showing their Body Art proud and openly through networking. Tattoo Shops are tattooing more and Tattoo Expos are exploding everywhere.


Since it is not a secret that women are more sociable than men, the study shows that women like to share the "tattoo experience" with their friends and relatives. Beside little or medium tattoos, women prefer designs with some kind of meaning because they tend to take tattoos more seriously than men.

However, parents of teenagers don't like too much this tendency. Teenagers seem to take the art of tattooing so lightly. Majority of them don't know that underage tattooing is illegal in the United States.

The study recommends parents to talk more with their younger sons and daughters about tattooing and tell them that tattoos are not a joke, specially because tattoo removing is usually expensive and painful and takes various sessions to remove completely, and sometimes "almost" completely.

Tattoo artists worldwide have seen their customers increase in numbers in recent times, especially girls who are more rebellious and liberated than ever.

Without doubt, influence of Pop Culture, Movies and Television is notable in today's girls, showing that tattoos are being more acceptable by female population but, what about employers? Have employers updated their mind to employ people with noticeable tattoos? I think that's a good question.

Women represents around 59% of all tattooed people in the United States and their favorite ones are angels, roses (flowers) and hearts. No more boyfriend's names in their wrists (how they learn so fast?) and upper and lower back are good places to show the tattoo.

I think girls need to get more information about the Art of Tattooing and the Art of Living Tattooed before they get inked. There is a good book called "Tattoos for Women" concerning all these matters in this page.

That's all my friends. Keep loving tattoos and comment. Good bye.
