One-in-Five Tattooed Adults Would Get Them Removed

More Americans now say they have tattoos, but few regret them.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 25% of American Adults have at least one tattoo, a number that’s been on the rise since 2013.  Eight percent (8%) of those have three or more tattoos, including two percent (2%) who have more than 10 pieces of ink. Seventy-four percent (74%) of adults say they have no tattoos. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
