This infographic, from specialty skincare boutique Skinfo, reveals all kinds of tattoo-related statistics. Not only will see what types of people and age groups have tattoos, you’ll also see which cities and companies are the most tattooed overall. Companies like Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Best Buy, Lowe’s, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and even Google don’t seem to have a problem hiring folks with a little ink.
Thinking about getting some ink? If so, you may want to check with your current or prospective employer about the workplace policy on tattoos. While tattoos can be seen as a form of self-expression, many hiring managers don’t see them as career building tools. In fact, 37 percent of HR managers cite tattoos as the third most likely physical attribute that limits career potential. Tattoos are becoming more accepted, however, with 45 million people in the United States sporting some sort of skin art.
