Spain is already the sixth country in the world where tattoo is most present. One in three Spaniards between 18 and 35 years old, has at least one
Tattoos have come a long way to live an explosion that transcends time and is increasing in popularity. Its origins are millenary, born as hallmarks of different cultures. Since they moved from prison environments to fashion shows and all kinds of demographic groups in most western countries, they have become so normal that the odd thing now is that they don’t have skin prints. From 1996 onwards, the figures of tattoo studios have only increased worldwide. If there were approximately 100 in our country, a little more than 20 years ago the figure amounts to about 2,000. Social networks and its popularity among elite athletes and great music figures have made it a global phenomenon. This is fashion. Spain is already the sixth country in the world where tattoo is most present. In fact, according to the estimates of the Spanish Academy of Dermatology, one in three Spaniards between 18 and 35 years old is at least one. And it is not an isolated case: in the United States, almost a third of the inhabitants have drawn art. The millennial generation, without a doubt, with 38% is the one that has more tattoos. Below is the X generation between 30-45 years with 32%. Then the Boomer and finally the Silent, who are over 65. In addition, the one who gets tattoos, already put on, becomes more than one. We have become nonconformists and most of us are not satisfied with just one graffiti. A quarter of the Spanish population has only one, on the contrary, the remaining three rooms have two or more. However, there is a dilemma among tattooed people. There are still those who prefer to eliminate their works of art, especially for labor reasons. Approximately 50% of patients who decide to paint their skin, later choose to resort to laser erasing for this reason, 20% because they have stopped feeling identified with the drawing or do not like it, another 10% because they are not satisfied with the result and the remaining 20% for other reasons. However, there will always be those who will wrinkle with them.
