For what it's worth, my wife and I both got tattoos last year as a symbol
on our life long bond to each other. She had never considered getting one
before she married me. She was 29 when she did. I had considered one
before, when I was 19 and in the Marine Corps, but didn't until I was 35.

I'm not in a position to generalize about why people get tattoos. I have
noticed alot of young women with tattoos, however. Last week, while I
was getting my second one, more than half of the people walking in and
looking at the samples were female. All of the tattoo artists I have
met, 11 total, have all been male.

I hope this helps get the discussion going.
