Women comprise the majority of the tattoo population seeking tattoo removal. A recent study estimated that as many as 69% of people seeking tattoo removal were women.
What does this mean and why are so many women desirous of having their tattoos removed?
The study outlines the importance women place on how they are viewed by society in general. The acceptance factor for tattooed women is still significantly lower than for tattooed men. Women are most concerned with body art placement and how visible the tattoo will be due to these stigmas and the negative feedback they receive in social and business situations.
