    I think so. 20 years ago, very few people had tattoos. Now everywhere I go it seems as if one out of every three people under the age of 40 has tattoos. The younger they are, the more likely they are to have a tattoo.

      I happen to have tattoos and piercing. Everyone gets them for different reasons but I got mine because Its like I am a walking novel and canvas. All of mine tell a story about me and who I am. I love looking at them.

    They're definitely becoming more common. I wouldn't say they're the norm though, as most people I know in my age group (between 20-30) don't have tattoos.

    I remember when I started working in the service industry when I was 19, both jobs I got were strict about me covering up my very visible tattoo on my wrist. Now, almost 7 years later, no one really cares. I think it stands out less as people become more accepting of tattoos in general.

      I was considering joining but I became nervous about it. Yes I believe they are more accepted

    I think tats were norms before. Tattoos are a part of others' culture.
