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

Do you have some examples of "The New Normal"?I'm a little old school. (ok, a lot ) and am not exactly sure what this means. I'll try. Seems like girls and women use the "F" bomb in speaking more often and more casually than men do. In the day, you never heard a girl use that...
