You might be surprised to learn that nearly 40 percent of American women have tattoos.

Some commentators believe that this trend reveals a clear social class divide.

Tattoos are fairly uncommon among middle- and upper-class women, the theory goes. But when you look at the working class, especially women under 40, tattoos are a very common sight.

Here are some interesting ones statistics about tattoos in america:

  • About 40% of the US workforce has tattoos.
  • Almost all women are okay with their co-workers showing tattoos at work.
  • Only 12% of people with tattoos have them visible in the workplace.
  • Women are more likely to experience discrimination because of tattoos at work than men.
  • About 40% of employees believe that tattoos are not appropriate in the workplace.
  • Almost 90% of people accept ink on professional athletes and personal trainers.
  • Direct discrimination against tattoos at work is low, with only 4% of people reporting it.
  • Young employees are statistically more likely to have tattoos than the older generation.

Do you subscribe to the idea that the number of tattoos a woman has reflects emotional or mental turmoil? Is there more to this narrative, beyond simple art and personal expression? Some people have very strong feelings about this.
