Tattoo Demographics By Race

According to a fascinating tattoo infographic offered by Medermis Laser Clinic, 21% of Americans (45 million) have a tattoo. That’s not a Tattoos removedsmall portion of the population, especially when you consider the fact that the younger generations are getting tattoos at a higher rate than their parents and grandparents.

What is even more interesting (at least to us) is the racial makeup of tattoo lovers. According to the infographic, white and African Americans populations have just about the same percentage of tattoos (20% and 21% respectively). Hispanics, however, have a 30% rate of tattoos, far outpacing the other racial groups listed.

Here in North Houston, we have a large Hispanic population. Since statistics show that about 11% of those with tattoos get them removed, we’re thinking that means there are a good proportion of Hispanics who may be regretting their decision to get inked.
