Tattoos A Growth Industry

       The percentage of Americans with tattoos hit 29% in 2015 and continues to rise in a nation with 21,000 parlors and gross sales approaching $2B. In 2008, 14% were inked.
       Surveys show more women than men have them, and among political affiliation its about equal.
       It's tougher in conversation to express disdain for ink as it's no longer a stigma.
       Still a bad idea, especially for all the women with sentences down their legs.

I just think they are stupid and unattractive. And the fact that so many people who spend money on them, don't have the money to spare, is offensive to those of us who pay their fair share. But tats are not as bad as piercings. Is that disdain?

The difference between a tattoo and a mullet, is that there once was a second or two when a mullet was cool.

Tattoos are FAR worse than piercings. Piercings can be removed easily. Face and neck tattoos? Not so easily. BTW, mullets have NEVER been cool. EVER.

An appropriate tatoo for someone desiring one should be on their forehead and should read, "STUPID""

Statistically the largest percentage of people who have tattoos fall into the following categories: lowest average income, didn't finish high school, have spent more than 3 days in jail , used recreational drugs. Sweet. Tat me up so I can fit into that group. As for girls getting "branded" by their boyfriend of the week? What a waste of skin space.

And it's the 29% who claim the "can't afford" health insurance.

Fortunately for you 10:54 you won't need a tattoo to be thought stupid or unattractive.

Clear thinkers see judgmental people that way regardless of body art.

Think of the money you have saved.

Some are really nice, others, not so much. I like them when they have some sort of plan or pattern. That's why I'm not so much a fan of our Brittnee. She looks like a canvass at a tattoo school. Beautiful woman though.
