Tattoos Are No Longer Considered “Rebellious”

Boris Katsman/ThinkStock

Remember when getting a tattoo was a big deal? Like you were totally going against society for inking your body with something so permanent. It may still be a big deal some, but to the majority… it isn’t.

A new survey, reported by PR Newswire, shows that 82% of Americans, 21 and older, no longer think getting a tattoo is “rebellious.” Rather, most people find it as “a statement of individual expression.”


Other findings from the survey include:

  • 40% of Americans believe a person’s tattoo says more about them than their social media profile. 61% of people with tattoos agree.
  • 72% think it’s more acceptable to have visible tattoos now than it was 10 years ago.
  • 59% think in 10 years, most companies won’t care about tattoos.
  • 67% of parents would be willing to take their child to get a tattoo when they turn 18.
  • 31% of Americans have tattoos while 51% of millennials have one.

Going back to when tattoos were “rebellious”… how did your parents find out about your tattoo OR how did you find out about your kids tattoo?
