Tattoo seems so powerful that it does not only influence the young celebrities but also the adult ones like Cher. This famous icon in the music world has a colorful flower on her butt, beautiful orchid on her stomach, black rose on her ankle, a Chinese emblem on her shoulder symbolizing strength and a few more.
Based on a recent survey conducted by the Journal of American Academy of Dermatologists, 24% of Americans have tattoos. They are in the category of 18 to 50 years old. This is an amazing number of tattooed people at the turn of the century.
Where tattoos were commonly seen with seafarers and the military in the past, even teeners have tattoos now. A spiraling rate of 36% in ages 18-29 of the Americans are tattooed. You will be surprised to know that the number of tattooed citizens is fast rising with the fad going on now with celebrities in Hollywood.
Because of this trend, new regulations, sanitation standards and modern instruments are now being used and implemented. These make the art of tattooing more accessible and a lot easier. Ironically, artistic tattooing is on the rise but at the same time, gang affiliation also rises with tattooed members.
