While many people still frown on them, there’s no doubt that tattoos are becoming more and more popular.Well, at least it's a decent sample size.
Now, a new study has revealed the effect that having tattoos has on your sex life.
Researchers from the University of Miami have found that people with tattoos are more likely to have a higher number of sex partners in the past year.
In the study, the researchers surveyed 2,008 adults - some of who had tattoos and some who didn’t.
The survey revealed that people with tattoos were more likely to be smokers, to have spent time in prison, and to have had a higher number of sexual partners.This isn't exactly rocket science or new: People Who Get Tattoos Drink More and Science Says: Tattoos Make Women Look Easy, but it's good work if you can get someone to fund it.
Worryingly, these individuals were also more likely to be diagnosed with a mental health issue, and to report sleep issues.
Professor Karolin Mortensen, who led the study, said: “Previous research has established an association between having a tattoo and engaging in risky behaviours.
“In an era of increasing popularity of tattoos, even among women and working professionals, we find these relationships persist but are not associated with lower health status.”
I have to say, it may just be the neighborhood, but I'm amazed at the number people on our beach, especially women, with tattoos.
