Tattoos are way to ornate your body with designs that will last forever. Whether it be a butterfly, a dragon or a tree, this permanent work of art says a lot about a person. Annually, U.S. customers spend $1,650,500,000, which may seem odd since only 14% of American’s have at least one tattoo. 36% of U.S. adults 18-25 and 40% of U.S. adults age 26-40 have at least one tattoo. In total, 45 million United States citizens have tattoos.

There are 21,000 tattoo parlors in the U.S. The average cost of a small tattoo is $45 (well worth the money or too expensive?) while a large one can be around $150/hour. Some people may be forking over tons of money for this creative art, since 32% of people say that they are addicted to ink. However, there are some who regret their decisions (17%) and others who are in the process or have gotten a tattoo removed (11%).

But take certain factors into consideration before getting a tattoo. 49% of people think that the reputation of the artist or studio is the most important factor, while 8% think price is. 43% of people think that getting a tattoo for a personal meaning is the most important decision.
So how does the U.S. population feel about their permanent ink? 29% say that tattoos make them feel rebellion while 31% feel that it makes them feel sexier. A small percentage (5%) think that tattoos make them feel more intelligent.

Would you ever get a tattoo? Would it be big or small, and what would be the most important factor?
