Tattoo Removal ~ The Women Beat the Men

In a study conducted by the Texas Tech University Health Services Center, researchers found that significantly more women seek tattoo removal than men, a startling 69% compared to only 31% of men.

Why are there more women who want tattoo removal than men?

The study was conducted on two separate occasions, once in 1996 and again in 2006, and while in both instances the reasons for wanting tattoo removal had elements in wanting to forget the past, in the 2006 study, more women than men were seeking tattoo removal because of the feeling that they were under stricter standards socially and in the business world for visible tattoos. Women were more likely to want their tattoos in areas where they had control over who could see them and when, so body site placement issues were foremost for them.

Those who do seek tattoo removal only comprise about 6% of the total tattooed population, with most waiting upwards of 10 years before having the tattoo removed.
