36% of Americans 18 to 29 are tattooed

Over the past years we’ve discussed many Asian models that are tattooed. But if you think it’s something just for soldiers, sailors, bikers, and models than you’re wrong. According to a recent study published in Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology about 36 percent of Americans age 18 to 29 and more than 24 percent of Americans between 18 and 50 have at least one tattoo.

Just in case you forgot who the girl is in the picture, it’s Ymmi Goldfish who was mentioned before at Asian Sirens.

  1. Marco, I’m glad you posted that – here’s the CNN.com story:

    And for those who don’t want to read the whole thing and doubted me before when we were discussing the star tats on that otherwise gorgeous young lady’s body:

    The survey also found that what your mother may have told you about who has tattoos is true: People who drink, do drugs, have been jailed or forgo religion are more likely to be tattooed.

  2. Good you remembered me to check out more often the Asiandivas group badboy. I just found there a nice story about Cassie. Hope you don’t mind I used it for Asian Sirens as well!

  3. hahaha…

    soldiers, sailors, bikers,…and models?

    “which of these things is not like the other??”

  4. Marco, I don’t mind at all that you used that story about Cassie for Asian Sirens. When I first saw photos of her, I couldn’t tell her ethnicity but was glad to find out she was half Filipina so I could post about her in my Asian Divas Yahoo Group.

  5. You forgot NBA players…

    I have seen some of the dumbest writings in Chinese/Japanese on these guys. You would think with their money they could hire someone to interpret.

    Of course most of the Tattoos my buddies have (old soldiers) were inked on during periods of sudden drunkenness.

    One of my fiends in jump school had a skull and crossbones dangling from a parachute with AIRBORNE: DEATH FROM ABOVE written above the image put on his upper arm. He was blind drunk and was so hung-over the next day he failed the pull up test. So, now he has this magnificant tattoo and no jump wings.

    My favorite femal tattoo was on a dancer. She bore small rabbit tracks, starting at her shoulder, that lead down her torso and disaappeared into her….

  6. I think it was Taryn Manning who was in a changing room in Japan when a woman began to laugh at her Japanese tattoo. Taryn thought she had been inked with the word “Mysterious” when it actually translated into “Strange”. I guess Britney Spears had a similar problem with one of her tats.
