Just 10% Of Adults Over 40 Have Tattoos!
Walking down College Ave in Fort Collins, Lakewood, Denver, or Colorado Springs Colorado might feel like you’re surrounded only by tattooed individuals, and you might be right. Almost half the millennials in Loveland, Greeley, and Fort Collins have at least one tattoo but its not only Northern Colorado, this statistic is true nationwide.
According to Pew Research Center- “About half (54%) have done one or more of the following: gotten a tattoo, dyed their hair a nontraditional color, or had a body piercing in a place other than their ear lobe….Gender is not a factor in either tattooing or nontraditional hair-dyeing — men and women are about equally likely to have done either — but body piercing is more common among young women than among their male counterparts.”
THE INCIDENCE OF TATTOOS AMONG MILLENNIALS AS WELL AS GEN X’ERS IS SO WIDESPREAD AS TO BE ALMOST MAINSTREAM.
Mikllenium Marketing- Thirty-six percent of Millennials and 40% of Gen X have at least one tattoo and many have multiples. (The reason this comes as a surprise to those of us who have never even contemplated the option of body art beyond ear piercing is that many are in discreet places.)
Tattoos are one of the few pieces of evidence of a true generation gap. Just 10% of those over 40 years old admit to a tattoo.
For us on the far side of the tattoo divide, it makes little sense to pay money (sometimes a lot of money, I am told) and endure pain to create an indelible mark. So it’s worth contemplating what marks Millennials find compelling enough to wear permanently.
A Google search of ‘tattoo designs’ returns over 2.3 million sites, so it’s hard to say what is most popular. The idiosyncrasy of a tattoo appears to be part of its appeal. Nothing is quite as personal or individual.
Some of the most widely reported facts from the report on Millennials from Pew Research involved the prevalence of tattoos — and more personal body decoration — among Gen Y.
