For centuries, tattoos have generally been associated with men. Whilst there are exceptions, such as tribal tattoos, girls in Western societies have tended to keep away from this form of body art. Instead they have adorned themselves in jewelry and make-up. That has all changed in the last 10 years in particular. Why has this happened?

I really have no facts upon which this hypothesis is formed, so I hope that you will comment on this article to give your own perspectives. Anyway, here goes…

With the exception of the past two years or so, we have all experienced booming economies. Unemployment has been at historically low levels and families have enjoyed the accumulation of wealth not experienced in previous generations. So affordability is not an issue. However, this is not the primary reason for the growing demand for ink tattoos for girls.
