Harris Tattoo Poll

The Harris Poll’s figures in the past year about the tattoo industry show the growth of tattooing economically, as well as illustrates the increase in acceptance by the mainstream media and audiences.  Here are a few fun facts for all you tattoo enthusiasts:

$2.3 billion
Annual revenue of the tattoo industry

15,000
Tattoo parlors in America

21
Percent of Americans who have a tattoo

23
Percent of women who have a tattoo

19
Percent of men who have a tattoo

36
Percent of 18-to-25-year-olds who have a tattoo

38
Percent of 30-to-39-year-olds who have a tattoo

11
Percent of 50-to-64-year-olds who have a tattoo

$200

The tattoo removal figures are interesting because it illustrates how people can change over time.  As these figures evolve, it is easy to argue that all of these will increase for something that was once (and in some areas) considered very taboo.
