More Mature Women Are Getting Tattoos

It may surprise you to learn that more mature women are getting tattoos these days than ever before! There are plenty of stereotypes associated with being a woman “of a certain age.” If you’re over 60 it’s assumed that you’re more interested in shopping for twinsets and sensible loafers than thinking about tattoos. Even women over 50 are not a group you generally associate with body art.

However, mature women are nothing if not full of surprises. As Mary Owen reports, “About 13 percent of Baby Boomers have tattoos, which is an approximately $1.65 million industry.” To be sure, tattoos have made their way from the fringes of society to the mainstream in the last twenty or thirty years.

Even so, body art is still primarily considered a province of the young, not so much for baby boomers. Sixtyandme.com founder Margaret Manning begs to differ: “We are individuals who grew up in the 60’s where individualism and self-expression were a passion and way of life.”
