is new zealand the land of the most tattooed people?
A recent survey by URM Research says 36% of New Zealanders under 30 years have a tattoo. Overall it seems one in five of us kiwis have at least one.
Also, that tattoos are more common among the young women with 22% of women being tattooed and only 17% of men in the same age group.
15% of those surveyed said they regretted it!
These photos were taken about 3 years ago at a tattoo conference in Christchurch . I have lost the young woman’s name – the tattooist is Riki Manuel.
