More women feel judged because they have tattoos


MORE WOMEN than men feel judged because they have a tattoo, according to a new survey.

Research carried out by the University of Portsmouth found an estimated 18 per cent of the population aged over 18 have body art, with many saying they later regretted their decision.

It also found that 16 per cent of women felt judged by their tattoo, compared to just 10 per cent of men. Researcher Dr Stephen Crabbe said: “The results of this survey make for stark reading. Even today, society still seems to judge women more for having tattoos.”
