Within the last decade the tattoo has virtually conquered the cultural world.
The taboo tattoo was until recently, the menacing fashion of heavy-metal rockers, bikers, criminals and the social outcast. But today the tattoo glamorously appears everywhere and anywhere. It’s the latest fashion craze. The tattoo has found a canvas on celebrities such as Britney Spears, Julia Roberts, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie, Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, and thousands of others, including Yours Truly 😉
Even the toy world has its very own Tattoodles doll, and it’s rumored sweet little Barbie has recently been seen flaunting a “cool” tattoo.
The National Geographic News stated that 15% of all Americans are tattooed. The Alliance of Professional Tattooists (APT) estimates over 39 million Americans have a tattoo. Details Magazine published a poll that stated 22% of 18-25 year olds have at least one tattoo. It’s also estimated 60% of the tattooed are women.
