30% of the US population now has a tattoo, with nearly half of Americans under 40 sporting some sort of ink. It’s easy to understand why. Whether it’s artistic expression revealing an inner part of our spirit, motivation to live life according to our aspirations, reminders of loved ones lost, or simply a lost bet, our tatts reveal something meaningful about us.
