Tattoo Survey Says We Are Not The Majority


A company named Poll Position, whose website looks very conservative, conducted a national “scientific telephone survey” (scientific telephone? really?!) and 64% told the survey they would not get a tattoo on their body, 23% said they would, 14% did not have an opinion.

The split between Men and Women didn’t vary far from the average. So it doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, you probably have the same feelings about tattoos.

Age groups offered the biggest differences with the tattoo question. Younger Americans were more likely to get a tattoo, while people over 45 were less likely. In the 18-29 year old age group, 34% would get a tattoo, 38% would not, 28% had no opinion. In the 30-44 year old group, 34% would get a tattoo, but 59% said they would not, while 7% had no opinion. In the 45-64 year old group, 72% said they would not get a tattoo on their body. In the 65 and over category, 85% would not get a tattoo.

Poll Position’s “scientific telephone survey” (it’s still funny) of 1,176 registered voters nationwide was conducted November 27, 2011 and has a margin of error of ±3%.  Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults but with less than 2,000 weighing in on the issue is it really a true sample?
