An epidemic of women getting inked up? We examine what academic studies say on tattooed women and what this growing trend may reveal. The prevailing media message is that you look cool with tattoos. The trend for young women to get inked has grown considerably in the last 20 years. So much so, you are now more likely to see a female with a tattoo than a male. Currently, “close to 80% of the people walking into a tattoo shop to be inked are women!” But did anyone seriously consider what men think about these permanent gaudy badges of female narcissism (“it’s all about me, baby!”). It is said that girls get tattoos for the same reasons they cut their hair short. Girls’ logic, when it comes to tattoos, may best be described by paraphrasing Lena Dunham’s character in Girls: “I have a tattoo, and that just makes me naturally interesting.” When most girls are inked does that still make them unique? Very soon, those who spurn the ink will be truly more unique and thus interesting, unlike the unthinking sheep following a fashion. The shift occurred notably in western nations around when the new millennium arrived. We saw how a once novel identifier of someone who is quirky, characterful and different turned into almost an essential fashion statement for every hip young woman.
