...I thought about getting one many times, but was never 100% that it would be the one I wanted on me for the rest of my life. If I do get one in the future it would probably be a small version of this:

Oh winston I disagree totally. There are alot more people with tats now than 30 years ago. And it's much more acceptable in the workplace than when I started into the work force in the 90's. I think the only place you don't see tats and piercings now is the financial jobs, insurance, banking, and that's even changing slightly.

...In most financial or professional jobs, any ink visible is a career killer and even more so are gauges in ears (unless you want to be a manager at a convenient store or work at Chipotle!

I disagree.

I work at a university and the number of kids I see with visible ink on their necks, forearms, wrists, hands and even chests is astounding.

Same with younger faculty members and professionals. I don't think it's as much a career killer as it was even 10 years ago.

I myself will most likely never have one, but to each their own.

I doubt it, it's probably your perception as you turn into an old man.

I guarantee more people today get tats than last year and the year before that, so on and so on.

You guarantee it? In all honesty you guys may very well be right, but they're still not all that popular.

Maybe not in our region, or just in Cincinnati in general. But they are pretty popular now and somewhat widely accepted. It's not for just rebels anymore.

That's true. For someone to act like opening a tattoo removal business would be exceptionally profitable is a bit of a reach IMO.

I think I heard a while back that almost half of millennials had at least one tattoo.

Yeah, there's no way that's accurate. I'd say 20% at the VERY most.

When I moved to Tucson I was amazed by the number of people with tattoos. Maybe it was because evryone shows so much skin here. Finally at the age of 65, I got my first ink on the body. It was only three small blue dots, though, so that they could align the radiation machine properly.

Got a link? Not that I care at all for the sake of the argument, I just find that incredibly hard to believe, being in the mentioned demographic.

Harris Poll which was the highest: http://www.theharrispoll.com/health-..._Takeover.html
This one cites Pew and has it at 40%: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-co...0Q21NU20150728
Here's the one with the 36%: http://www.millennialmarketing.com/2...r-millennials/

Honestly I fall in the gray area between Millennials and Gen X and I'm surprised you think it's 1 in 5 at most.

Perhaps because I live and mostly spend time in the suburbs? The Harris poll says 25% of people in suburbs have a tattoo... I don't know, thinking of all the millenials I know (a lot), very few have tattoos, at least that are visible which obviously can be misleading.

I'm surprised more don't share that sentiment.

I have about 30 hours of work on me and unless I'm wearing a polo and the sleeve rides up you'd never know. My brother is more in your age range and he's a psychologist. He's covered all the way down both his arms. He always wears long sleeves so you'd never see them.

Sure, but I imagine anyone who knows him knows about the tattoos, and the same can probably be said for you.

My son is 19, I guess that's a millennial? Anywho... he is a straight arrow but does have a large tat on the side of his torso. I'm not a fan myself. But he's a good guy and it's a well meaning concept tat.

I don't have any tattoos, but I've always wanted one. I'm sure at some point I'll get around to it. My oldest son, who will be 25 this year, recently had a sleeve from shoulder to elbow. It's a bit much for me, but it is basically covered with any shirt. My 20 year old went through a phase when he was 16 where he wanted one. I offered to take him, but he never went, which I'm glad. This was the same kid that begged to get his ears pierced when he was 12, which I allowed, only to be told by an umpire to remove them when pitching one night...and he hasn't worn them since.
Having been in the financial industry my entire life, my feeling on the matter is to each their own. Just remember that the PERCEPTION of someone with visible tattoos or piercings is a negative one. So if you are planning on a career that involves dealing with people's assets or health, probably should lay off the tear drop tattoos, lip piercings and gauges in the ear lobes...just saying.

So you allow your 12 yr old to make a decision that you know will negatively affect him? What in the hell is wrong with you?? My daughter wanted a belly button ring in high school, told her no and told her when she moves out she can do whatever. She is in college now and hasn't brought it up. Both my sons also know, no tats or piercings while living in this house. If you aren't adult enough to live on your own then your aren't adult enough to make a decision about advertising on your body.
